OnePlus 6T – One of this phone’s biggest rivals has just been slashed in price

OnePlus 6T – One of this phone’s biggest rivals has just been slashed in price

OnePlus 6T debuted back in October and was certainly an iterative upgrade over the OnePlus 6.

The handset comes with an all-screen design that has a notch at the top, a dual camera system and a fast processor.

OnePlus 6T is priced from £529 and is certainly one of the best value smartphones you can buy right now.

However, it appears Chinese rival OPPO is determined to tempt Android fans away from the OnePlus 6T with a sale for its RX17 Pro smartphone.

The OPPO RX17 Pro launched in the UK back in January and comes with a number of similar features to the 6T.

To start with, the RX17 Pro has a similar size screen that also has a teardrop-shaped notch at the top.

The RX17 Pro also has a 3,700mAh battery and a fingerprint reader underneath its display.

OPPO’s device comes with a triple-camera system on its rear that is comprised of a 12-megapixel main sensor and a secondary 20-megapixel module.

A time-of-flight lens is also present on the phone’s rear.

One of the RX17 Pro’s biggest compromises when compared to the OnePlus 6T is with regard to its processor.

OPPO’s mid-range product is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 unit that is certainly not as fast as the Snapdragon 845 that powers the OnePlus.

The RX17 Pro’s processor is accompanied by 6GB of RAM and an Adreno 616 GPU.

While the design of OPPO’s phone is extremely similar to the OnePlus 6T, it is certainly more visually striking, especially in its Radiant Mist colour that oozes tones of blue and purple depending on the angle light is striking it.

RX17 Pro usually retails for £549 but its price has been slashed by £70 as part of a spring sale.

That means the OPPO product can now be picked up for £479, a figure that is £50 cheaper than the entry-level OnePlus 6T.

The RX17 Pro is exclusive to Carphone Warehouse.
