While its design language is definitely indebted to the iPhone X (just like the OnePlus 5 was indebted to the iPhone 7), more so than it predecessor, the OnePlus 6 feels like its own device. The company will also announce a special Avengers: Infinity War edition of the device that will come with a textured back.
OnePlus has returned to using glass material for the rear of the OnePlus 6.
Camera: It will possibly get a vertical dual rear camera setup with a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 16-megapixel secondary sensor.
This year, OnePlus says it is trying to match what they offer on the inside of their phone on the outside. The key feature of the Bullets is that the earbuds themselves are magnetic, meaning you can clip them together to turn the earbuds off. Pulling them apart will turn them back on, and OnePlus promises the audio will resume automatically.
Inside the hardware is what you will find in a high-end phone because the OnePlus 6 is a high-end phone. If you've never heard of the brand, it's a Chinese company that's known to sell phones with high-end specifications for affordable prices. It includes 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage. The company is using a premium all-metal and glass frame, with durable Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and the back.
Design and displayAt 6.28in, the Full Optic AMOLED screen on the OnePlus 6 is the largest on any OnePlus phone yet, and with its 2280x1080 resolution and pixel density of 402ppi, it's also the highest-resolution (albeit just).
We fully expect the OnePlus 6 to roll out to more regions following its USA and Europe debut, so stay tuned for details on that.
The OnePlus 6 will make a departure from the current trend of an aluminium build in favour of a glass body, but it would retain horizontal lines and curved design of the current generation flagship. More gestures have been incorporated a la Android P or iPhone X from the navigation system to screenshotting to ambient display or Screen Off Gestures. The only thing that is yet to be known about the OnePlus 6 is the pricing.
The OnePlus 6 goes on sale on May 22.
At launch, the OnePlus 6 is available in two colours - "mirror black" and "midnight black" - the device pictured in our hands-on is the mirror black variant. At the front there is a 16MP sensor (Sony IMX371) with unique portrait mode features. The company has organized an event in London where they unveiling has taken place.
OnePlus also has a series of launch offers like cashbacks of Rs 1,000, Rs 2,000, extended warranty, no cost EMIs, gift cards, and benefits. The base model will sport 64GB of storage, along with 6GB of RAM.
There's also a 3,300mAH battery which is the same as the previous OnePlus 5T but considering Qualcomm's battery efficiency gains on the Snapdragon 845 this should provide even better battery life when coupled with dash charge, which is the best fast-charging technology in the industry. Additionally, there will also be a tempered glass protector by OnePlus to protect the display.
