OnePlus 6 Gets Official with an All-Glass Body and Bigger Display  

May 17, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

OnePlus 6 has finally revealed the latest addition to its flagship smartphone series, the OnePlus 6. But thanks to a series of leaks including the ones from the company that we almost knew what to expect. Omitting a few misses and additions, the OnePLus 6 is almost the same that were projected by the rumors.

OnePlus has taken the biggest step forward with the OnePlus 6 in terms of design. With curved back and glass body, the OnePlus 6 is surely the most differently-looking device from the manufacturer. Add to that the enlarged display and OnePlus 6 definitely draws the line from the rest.

Speaking of the display, OnePlus 6 do have the notch in its 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display to house the sensors and the earpiece. But it does help the device to retain the size despite having a bigger screen. And for the notch-haters, OnePlus do guarantee a masking option to hide the notch from the display.

The heart of the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, which comes with paired with 6GB/8GB RAM. On the storage front, OnePlus 6 will be available in three different variants: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The battery remains unchanged, and it’s the same 3300mAh battery that finds space inside the device, and it does support Dash Charging that can give you a day’s juice by just charging it for half an hour.

The camera features the same 16MP+20MP lens combo from the predecessor, but the primary lens features 1.22µm f/1.7 lens that promises better low-light capture on papers. The shift of the camera setup to the centre part has also enabled the addition of optical image stabilization along with EIS. On the front side, we have the same 16MP shooter which would be offering selfie portrait support through a future OTA update.

While we went through some noticeable additions that weren’t mentioned in the rumors, OnePlus also have given a miss to some of those that were widely anticipated. That includes the absence of wireless charging, ultra slow-mo 960fps video capture, and water resistance rating. OnePlus 6 does offer water resistance without the IP67 rating, though actual protection can only be evaluated with daily use. Additionally, the device also has a slow-motion capture that would let users snap 720p videos at 480fps.

Along with the flagship device, OnePlus also has finally come out with its first ever wireless headset device under the Bullet branding. The Bullets Wireless headsets come with magnetic tip that turns off automatically when the buds are clipped together. The device also comes with the capability to resume tracks when turned on, i.e. upon detaching the magnetic clips. The Bullet Wireless also features the company’s fast charging technology to deliver five hours of playback time upon charging for just ten minutes. The headset is being priced at $69.

Coming back to the OnePlus 6, the device will be made available on e-stores by May 21, with price-tags of $529, $579 and $629 respectively for the 6GB/64GB, 8GB/128GB and 8GB256GB variants. OnePlus 6 will be available in Midnight Black and Mirror Black variants, while a Limited Edition Silk White version will be available for grabs on June 5.
