OnePlus 6 is expected to launch later this month, and the company doesn't see any harm in giving out details here and there. In January, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had confirmed that the company's next flagship will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Yesterday, he again took to OnePlus forums to reveal what to expect from the successor of OnePlus 5T.
In one post, Lau explains how OnePlus is trying to deliver a "truly burdenless" experience with the OnePlus 6. Moreover, the company intends to set a "higher standard" with the new smartphone. Not only this, the executive also confirmed what the rumor mill speculated long back. The upcoming flagship will indeed come with 8GB RAM and 256GB inbuilt storage. However, it is unclear whether or not the smartphone will have more storage variants.
"Fast is not just about shorter loading times or top download speeds, any OEM can achieve high numbers in one or two metrics," said Lau.
Fast is about creating a lasting impression of speed and smoothness, throughout all-day use, whether you're recording 4K video or browsing Facebook. Fast is about ensuring there is less than a 1/1000 percent likelihood of your phone freezing, even under constant heavy use. To us, it's about setting a higher standard,"
Well, Lau sounds pretty confident! It seems like OnePlus 6 will be all about speed. The first official teaser video also confirms the smartphone will pack "The Speed You Need".
If you are wondering about other specs, the OnePlus 6 is likely to sport a 6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 2,280×1,080 pixels, resulting in the aspect ratio of 19:9. Yes, it will come with a display notch akin to Apple's iPhone X.
The smartphone is believed to retain the same vertically arranged dual camera setup like its predecessor. The camera setup will reportedly include a 20MP sensor and a 16MP sensor. There is no information on the resolution of the front camera. When it comes to software, the handset is listed on Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 8.1 Oreo OS. Finally, a 3,450mAh battery with Dash Charging support is said to run the entire package.
