OnePlus 6 Launch Event Today

OnePlus 6 Launch Event Today

The OnePlus and the OnePlus 5T were an astonishing set of devices of previous year, from the hype-mongering Chinese manufacturer. The 6 ships with Android O, but the company says it will have a beta version of Android P on its website in the next couple of days. The camera clicks 16-megapixel images.

The phone is daily water resistance or you can call it splash proof. The secondary 20MP lens remains unchanged, but the front-facing 16MP camera has been upgraded to support OnePlus" new "Portrait Mode' feature. OnePlus 6 will roll out globally starting from May 22nd, however, if you want to buy the Silk White variant than it will be available only from June 5.

OnePlus has debuted its OnePlus 6 smartphone, taking another crack at maintaining its reputation as a "flagship killer".

The upcoming OnePlus 6 is said to come with a 3,450mAh battery, just 150mAh more than the predecessor OnePlus 5T.

I've been trying out the OnePlus 6 ahead of its announcement today, and it's an impressively engineered object. It is also powered by 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU. For comparison, this puts OnePlus' fancy new headphones at a much cheaper price than both the Beats X (£103) and Google's Pixel Buds (£160). It is said to flaunt 6.2-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch, which is said to house a front camera with facial recognition feature.

OnePlus will offer a 256GB storage option for the first time paired with 8GB of RAM with the Midnight Black color for $629/€619/£569.

With the AptX technology, the OnePlus Bullet Wireless will deliver high-resolution audio. The firm is promising a 30 per cent boost in performance compared to its last-gen release, and a 10 per cent improvement in battery life, despite the handset's souped-up, power-slurping display.

You may not have known this, but OnePlus headphones have been available for some time. The smartphone will be available in Midnight Black, Mirror Black, and Silk White Limited Edition colour variants. Here's what completes the powerful OnePlus 6, all for just $529.

With the addition of Qualcomm's X20 LTE modem, which in the case of the OnePlus 6 supports both 4X4 MIMO and 256QAM, and the phone's new glass body, OnePlus is promising Gigabit download speeds, a first for a OnePlus device. According the listing, the OnePlus 6 for the 64GB variant will be priced at $620 (approximately Rs 40,700) while the 128GB variant will be priced at $680 (approximately Rs 45,700).

The new device follows in the established tradition of OnePlus smartphones and features the latest components, and comparable specifications and features to current-generation premium phones like the Samsung Galaxy S9 - all at a much lower price than flagship phones.

As is customary for the ambitious company, the OnePlus 6 will be the only phone it sells until the next generation, or "T" model refresh is released (that is if the manufacturer even goes down that route this year).

The OnePlus 6 might also offer ultra-slow motion video recording feature, as hinted by the company through various teasers shared on various social media channels.
