The OnePlus 6 has been leaked at it’s full on the internet in the past few months and OnePlus has also been teasing us for quite a while now – we think it’s time to summarise the expected specifications, designs and renders for OnePlus’ new flagship device for 2018 – the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus has already sent out invitations to it’s official event where it will finally unveil the much anticipated OnePlus 6 flagship device on 16 May.
OnePlus has already confirmed that the back will be a curved glass panel with a metal frame around the device. This will give it a more premium feel, and it also means that it’ll join the ‘glass’, premium device smartphones that are all out there on the market today.
This might also mean that we will finally also see OnePlus equip and use a fast wireless charging unit in the rear panel – it’s not been confirmed yet, but there’s a small chance.
The display will be a massive 6.28″ FHD OLED panel with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 – and yes, it’s already confirmed that it will have a notch. As we’ve mentioned in our recent article for the ‘soon to be released’ LG G7 ThinQ – we hope that it will have an option to disable it like on the Huawei P20 devices – we love options, and we want to see companies please most of their customers and let them decide to keep it or not.
The OnePlus 6 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM and a selection of (likely) 128GB and 256GB storage options. Don’t expect to see an expandable SD card slot.
In terms of Camera, it’s rumored to have a dual camera setup. One camera is said to be a 20MP unit and the other one at 16MP. There aren’t any specific details to be known at this moment, however it’s expected to have a Slow-Mo feature that can also be found on Sony Xperia devices as well as on the latest Galaxy S9 duo. This would allow OnePlus to shoot 960fps video at 720p and join the small group of smartphones with this feature.
Other features include the 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0. The OnePlus 6 might also be the first OnePlus device to have any sort of IPXX certificate – so that could protect users from small amounts of water and dust.
The battery is said to be a 3450 mAh unit and it will run Android Oreo on day one – on top of Oxygen OS of course.
There will be a special ‘Avangers’ edition, though it’s unclear if it will be as special as the Start Wars version was for the 5T. Colour options are expected to be the standard Black and White – but nothing is confirmed at this moment. Price wise, it’s expected to cost $50 more than the previous OnePlus 5T – so that translates to a price of $525.
