OnePlus 6 on top of its predecessor One Plus 5T hinting design changes

OnePlus 6 on top of its predecessor One Plus 5T hinting design changes

Once you get past the notch, the OnePlus 6 includes a number of other design flourishes that distinguish it from its most immediate predecessor. The smartphone maker for its part has already started to compare the OnePlus 6's camera with the iPhone X, Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel 2, suggesting that this year's device could very well be a major hit with photography enthusiasts. That's very different from the OnePlus 5T that made of all metal, specifically anodized aluminum.

But if your eyes are set to the future (and toward a bigger screen and faster chipset), the OnePlus 6 seems like the best choice right now.

The iPhone X will be hard to unseat, but the OnePlus 6 is certainly a capable device that offers another flagship to the lineup of premium Android phones. The device, like the OnePlus 5T before it, offers dual rear-facing cameras with a primary 16-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilization, and an aperture of f/1.7.

That means you get a much bigger viewing area in a device that's physically smaller in your hand. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. The device will come in two RAM option 6 GB and 8 GB and features three storage option 64/128/256 GB. Plus, with Gorilla Glass 5 protection at the back (as well as front), the phone is set to take a few hits without breaking down. The trade-off gives a boost to the battery life however, and you'd need to get your eyeball so near to the phone to see the difference that people will think you're odd. The OnePlus 6 smartphone is expected to carry a 6.28-inch full HD+ display panel upfront with a notch at the top with aspect ratio of 19:9. OnePlus has adopted an all-glass body not for the wireless charging support, but for enhancing cellular connectivity. 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. This time, the company has also planned pop-up events across the country, where the enthusiasts can buy it without breaking a sweat.

He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. The House That Jack Built is an uncompromising, barbaric, distressing watch, and one very hard to stomach.

So how does the OnePlus 6 look at first glance? If you want 8GB of RAM and to double the internal storage, it will cost you an extra $50 (£60). According to a OnePlus spokesperson, the phone will survive everyday spills like an accidental trip to the toilet bowl, but it's not rated to go swimming.

Updated on May 16: The OnePlus 6 has been announced, and this article has been overhauled to reflect that. But it's also a lot more affordable than the OnePlus 6 will be. On the front, OnePlus 6 is expected to house a 20MP sensor with facial recognition feature. At the company's London event, Carl Pei called the OnePlus 6 design their boldest design yet.

It's certainly quick and responsive in early testing, and it's also good to see that the Chinese firm continues to push its clever Dash Charge battery technology. The OnePlus 6 launch event will happen in London, and then the company will have follow-up launch events in China as well as in India tomorrow.

While the OnePlus 6's 6GB+64GB model is priced at $529, the 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB models are priced at $579 (roughly Rs 39,200) and $629 (roughly Rs 42,600) respectively.
