    Post Some Potentially Good News for the OnePlus 6T

    For those who can remember way back to the fall of 2016, OnePlus saw a literal hole in the market, created by exploding Samsung Note 7 batteries. They decided to put some new internals into their already popular OnePlus 3 and release a mid-season refresh called the OnePlus 3T. Then, last year, they upped the ante a bit with the OnePlus 5T—not only did it run on a newer processor but had a brand-new 18:9 screen as well.

    So here we are in mid-2018 already talking about the successor to a high-end phone that's barely two months old. I tells ya, this business is nuts...

    Anyway, the news: Android Authority reports that Oppo has just announced the R17, shown in the image above. It features an in-display fingerprint reader and, perhaps more importantly, an acceptably-small display notch. Why is this important? Because one, Oppo and OnePlus share the same parent company (BBK Electronics) and two, previous Oppo phones—the R11, R11s and R15—have designs virtually identical to the OnePlus 5, 5T and 6. Google those Oppos if you don't believe me.

    I don't think the fingerprint reader is going to make it over to the 6T, and that's not necessarily a bad thing; it likely wouldn't be as lighting-quick as what OnePlus users currently enjoy. But if that smaller notch shows up on the 6T then my patience in holding out for it will have been justified.

    Oh, and fast wireless charging would also be acceptable.

    My HoFo feedback... is that still a thing?

    Already released. Purple colour is good.
