The OnePlus 6 is finally official. In terms of pricing, there is a bit of a hike, but still the smartphone retail in Europe under 600 Euros price mark.

Under the hood, the OnePlus is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa-core chipset, whereas the Honor 10 is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970 Octa-core chipset, which also powers the Honor View 10. The Honor 10 comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, whereas the OnePlus 6 offers 6/8 GB RAM and 64/128/256 GB storage.
