OnePlus's first phone to feature a glass back

OnePlus phones have always been known for their beautiful design, and OnePlus 6 will be no expectation. Pete Lau has confirmed that the smartphone will come with a glass back; a first in OnePlus's history. He says the company is ever-ready to adapt to the changing trend in the smartphone market, and it's time to move to a glass design.

"OnePlus 6's glass design is centered around creating a "sense of value" and "premium hand-feel"," Pete Lau said in the post. The glass rear panel of the smartphone will not only be aesthetically appealing, it will also give users a pure feeling.

OnePlus 6's rear panel will have 5-layer Nanotech Coating

Of course, there are other smartphones featuring the glass back, but OnePlus 6 will surely stand out from the crowd. Instead of the usual layer of three, the smartphone's rear panel will come with five printed layers of Nanotech Coating; something we have never seen in the smartphone industry. The additional layers will give the back of the device a stronger impression of depth, making the OnePlus 6 look premium.

OnePlus's honest design approach

Pete Lau has explained the honest design approach of OnePlus. And the OnePlus 6 has also been designed keeping in mind the company's philosophy. "Keeping industrial design honest means respecting what a product should be, rather than tacking on additional elements just for the sake of hype," wrote Lau.

Lau has also emphasized on the hard work OnePlus has put in the making of OnePlus 6. Notably, the company's design team tested over 70 glass prototypes before selecting the best one.

Truly bezel-less design

OnePlus 6 will be a truly bezel-less smartphone with the display covering the entire space of the front panel. The company has confirmed that the OnePlus design team has worked to maximize the viewable area by implementing the new notch design.

While its predecessors also sport the full-screen design, the OnePlus 6 will take the concept of a bezel-less phone to a whole new level. The notch at the top will house the selfie camera and the usual sensors, eliminating the need for a bezel.

The water-resistance feature will make OnePlus 6 a more practical smartphone for day-to-day use. Needless to say, with OnePlus 6, OnePlus is all set to up its flagship game.
