OnePlus 6 to Sport Alert Slider; Release Date and Colors Leaked

April 10, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

OnePlus is apparently giving out details about its upcoming flagship much before its launch. After having confirmed the flagship through a tease, the company is now letting out more details through a series of tweets. That’s in addition to the confirmation of company CEO about the flagship specifications.

But thanks to additional leaks that we are having glimpses of what hasn’t yet been touched by the company. That includes an official release date alongside the availability of colors. We have already heard of a late Q2 launch of OnePlus 6, but things are becoming clearer with a new leak that points to a specific release date. Accordingly, the phone will hit the home market, i.e. China on May 5.

In addition to revealing the release date, the leak also showcases a few images that disclose the new color addition to the OnePlus family. Besides the usual black and white shades, OnePlus 6 will also be donning a new blue shade. OnePlus has deviated from its usual color offering by releasing a red variant of the OnePlus 5 device.

In addition to the aforementioned color variants, OnePlus will also have a wooden-based casing rolled out. The company is well known for having rolled out sandstone cases for its flagship smartphones. We need to see if the wooden panel will come as a replacement for the sandstone version.

We still have no clarity regarding the price, are sources have put the pricing under a broader range spanning from as low as £374 to £530. As with the specs, OnePlus CEO has previously confirmed the presence of Snapdragon 845 SoC along with RAM of 8GB. He has also hinted about the alert slider, which will provide multiple functions including ability to focus and change volumes.

The device will reportedly feature a 6-inch AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution. The notches are all but confirmed, but users will be given the option to hide the notch by blacking out the status bar display. This was confirmed after users registered their opinion through a feedback.
