The upcoming OnePlus flagship will come with a 6.28 inch Optic OLED 19:9 ultra-wide display with a screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. There will be a notch with the earpiece, front camera and other sensors.
The OnePlus 6 will sport Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection on both the sides of the smartphone. The device will come with full glass back to support wireless charging, a first for a OnePlus smartphone.
Flagship Qualcomm Processor
The OnePlus 6 will come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. There may be another variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage as well.
Dual Rear Camera
Coming to optics, OnePlus 6 will come with a dual setup of a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 20MP low light sensor with an f/1.7 aperture. Up front, the device will come with a 20MP f/2.0 sensor with advanced Face Unlock support.
Android Oreo 8.1
OnePlus 6 will run the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with custom OxygenOS on top. The smartphone is also being touted to support gesture-based navigation feature like the iPhone X.
As per the leaked reports, OnePlus 6 is going to be the costliest OnePlus smartphone ever. The 6GB/128GB OnePlus 6 variant may cost around Rs 35,000/- whereas the 8GB/256GB version may cost upwards of Rs 45,000/-.
Not An Oppo R15 Copy
Several rumours have surfaced that OnePlus 6 is going to be a copy of Oppo R15, the sister brand of OnePlus. These speculations are based on the OnePlus 5T being similar to Oppo R11s. But this time the OnePlus 6 will launch with a different design language and other additional features.
The iPhone X Inspiration
OnePlus is known to take a lot from iPhones. Just like the OnePlus 5, whose design language is similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, the screen on the OnePlus 6 seems to have been inspired from the one on the iPhone X. From the notch to gesture navigation, to a vertical rear-lens setup, the OnePlus 6 has a lot in common with the iPhone X in terms of design.
Wireless & Dash Charging
The smartphone will come with a 3,450 mAh non-removable battery with Dash Charge. With a new glass back, the smartphone will most likely include fast-wireless-charging support.
OnePlus smartphones are known to launch in June every year. But, the OnePlus 6 may break tradition and arrive early. The reports hint at a May release. Between then and now, expect plenty more OnePlus 6 leaks before the flagship actually arrives.
An Avenger-Themed OnePlus 6!
OnePlus surprised many Star War fans last year with a limited edition run of the OnePlus 5T. It was called the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition. It had a custom colour scheme to match the theme of the movie with a textured back which mimiced the surface of the planet where the penultimate action takes place.
Now, based on a video posted mistakenly on OnePlus India’s Facebook page has revealed a possible connection between the upcoming OnePlus flagship and the latest Avengers movie. The video has since been taken down. But a mirror available on YouTube shows the 9 second clip with the OnePlus and the Avenger logos intermingling at the start of the clip.
While an actual smartphone is not seen in the clip, the implications of it are exciting and will definitely have the OnePlus and Avengers fans excited. The Avengers: Infinity War is set to release on April 27. This conveniently coincides with the fact that the OnePlus 6 could release early this year instead of following its usual release cycle in June.
Here’s hoping that OnePlus does come out with a limited edition OnePlus 6. It will surely send the sales soaring.
