This piece of information came from the OnePlus India Tweeter page, with them posting a tweet that hinted at the fact that OnePlus 6 may come with these two features. Therefore, it shouldn't come as a surprise to all the OnePlus fans that OnePlus 6's launch has been planned around April 27, the official release date of the Avengers movie. The tweet reads "Don't you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains?"

Another detail which got out about the OnePlus 6 is the camera samples from the OnePlus 6. The newly revealed shots hence don't guarantee the existence of a telephoto lens on the OnePlus 6 but make it more likely.

While OnePlus have been pushing the boundary with better specs and different textures, they have been quite reluctant when it comes to water resistance. We are talking about OnePlus 6 here. This opens up the possibility of underwater video recording and it offers peace of mind if you're taking your phone with you to the beach or at the swimming pool.

As for its price, the OnePlus 6 is rumoured to start at CNY 3,299 (approximately Rs. 34,200) for the base 64GB variant. This will be company's first phone to feature water resistance, but it will be interesting to see what IP certification the device will have. This is as per tested in laboratory conditions. Huawei's new flagship smartphone with triple cameras - the Huawei P20 Pro is also certified with IP67 water and dust resistance. The smartphone could sport a 6.28-inch AMOLED display (2280 x 1080 pixels), which is slightly bigger than the 6.01-inch on OnePlus 5T. Although the camera samples don't reveal technical details about the OnePlus 6 camera, what we can surely see that the phone definitely captured pretty clear pictures in bright daylight scenario. Earlier today, OnePlus CEO also shared the camera samples of the phone.
