New OnePlus 6 rumors point to an Android smartphone that combines faster speeds and a trendy all-screen notch design at the top, but one that remains affordable next to other flagship devices. And it’s likely just weeks away.
Update: The OnePlus 5T has sold out across Europe.
Things are getting tough at the top of the smartphone game, and where OnePlus used to have a dedicated place as the de facto ‘low cost, great spec’ smartphone, that position is increasingly under threat from other brands.
The OnePlus 6 will be replacing the OnePlus 5T right now. The 5T was already one of the more impressive phones of 2017, finally bringing the longer display that was so fashionable among the other big brands, as well as improvements to the camera. OnePlus 6 promises to be better.
OnePlus 6 release date
The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 were both released in June of their respective years, so June 2018 is the obvious launch date for the OnePlus 6, but a number of rumors suggest it’ll arrive a little earlier this year.
OnePlus 6 design and display
It’s official, the OnePlus 6 will have an iPhone X-style notch in its display, although it will be smaller than the one found on Apple’s flagship smartphone.The Chinese firm has also confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will feature the biggest screen it’s ever put on a phone while not increasing the handset’s overall size, resulting in a 90% screen-to-body ratio.OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has also confirmed that the firm’s next device will retain a headphone jack.
OnePlus 6 camera and battery
A leaked specs list reveals that the OnePlus 6 might have a dual-lens f/1.7 camera on the back, with 20MP and 16MP sensors – the same as the OnePlus 5T.However, the front-facing camera is listed as being a 20MP f/2.0 one, up from 16MP on the OnePlus 5T.The same leak lists a 3,450mAh battery, which would be a slight increase on the 3,300mAh juice pack in the OnePlus 5T.
OnePlus 6 power and storage
There’s no more guesswork required here. The OnePlus 6 will pack in a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, as confirmed by the CEO.However, we expect a cheaper option to be available, likely with less RAM and storage, with a rumor pointing to a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage configuration, and Android 8.1 on board.So far, so believable.However, more recently a fresh image slip claims the OnePlus will have a 6.2-inch display, Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, dual rear cameras of 16MP + 20MP and Dash Charge capabilities.We’ve also seen another leak pointing to a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, along with Android 8.1 – which makes use confident we’ll see at least two variants of the OnePlus 6.
More OnePlus 6 leaks and news
We’ve heard the possibility that the OnePlus 6 will have a fingerprint scanner built into the screen, but we wouldn’t count on its accuracy, since it’s a feature we’re yet to see on a mainstream handset.From the numerous leaks we’ve seen so far, it looks like the OnePlus 6 will have a rear mounted fingerprint scanner – although it may be smaller than the circular offering on the 5T.
