Soon, the Chinese brand OnePlus will reveal its latest smartphone model: the One Plus 6. The previous models have been quite successful, so consumers have high expectations for this new one. The predecessor of OnePlus 6, the One Plus 5T is out of stock and the brand won't restock it, so we already look forward to their new cell phone! Do you want to know more about the new OnePlus 6? We have gathered all the information for you that has been revealed so far, ranging from rumors to confirmed features - we will tell you everything! Continue reading to learn more about the OnePlus 6 release and rumors.
In this article, we will address some points that we consider to be fundamental when evaluating the quality of a smartphone. Here are the evaluation criteria we will focus on:
- Design and size
- Camera and battery
- Power and storage capacity
Let's start first with the look of the phone and what often determines our first impression; design and size.
Overall, the new OnePlus 6 is expected to have a more elegant look than the previous model, probably with less rounded outlines. At the OnePlus 6 release, the smartphone will be available in two colors: white & black.
Regarding the screen, we already know that it will be very big! The OnePlus 6 follows the same trend as the Apple & Samsung market giants with an even larger 6.28-inch display with 2280 x 1080 pixels. The new OnePlus 6 will have a notch at the top of the screen like the iPhone X. While the size of the phone remains the same, the screen will cover almost the entire front and therefore, be bigger than before. This new OnePlus phone will reveal a 19:9 widescreen.
The new OnePlus 6 will be 7.5 mm wide and weigh 175g. As for the back of the phone, it will be made of glass for a more modern design.
In general, it is clear that the new OnePlus 6 has some similarities with the iPhone X and the latest Samsung model. Especially the notch on the screen reminds of the latest iPhone, while the back of the phone might have been by Samsung.
The quality of the camera, as well as the battery capacity, is also a very important feature for a smartphone. Nowadays, cell phones can be used for so much more than just making calls and almost everyone uses them to take pictures instead of an actual camera.
The phone comes with a camera on the back and, of course, with a front camera - it's hard to imagine a phone with a camera for selfies nowadays...The rear camera has a dual set up, the first one has 20 megapixels and the second 16 megapixels. The front camera also has 20 megapixels. Several shots taken with the new OnePlus 6 have already been revealed and confirm that the camera takes great high-quality pictures. Nevertheless, it is still necessary to test it under different conditions.
The battery of this phone has slightly increased from 3,300 mAh for the OnePlus 5T to 3,450 mAh for this new phone.
The launch of a new phone always comes with new features and changes, so here is what you can expect from the OnePlus 6 release.
First of all, like for the Samsung smartphones, the fingerprint scanner will be on the back of the phone, below the camera and it will now be oval! But OnePlus is also following the other competitors and has been trying to set up a facial recognition system for the new OnePlus 6 like the one that Apple is using for the iPhone X. For the previous model, this technology was introduced recently and it was working well according to the users. We are therefore waiting for the launch of an even more efficient system with the OnePlus 6 release.
On top of that, we already know that the cell phone will have a separate headphone jack. However, the brand is currently creating its range of wireless OnePlus headphones.
In addition, with this phone, you don't have to worry about making calls in rainy weather anymore as it will be waterproof.
According to rumors, a heart rate monitor will be built into the smartphone and even though it is only a rumor, for now, we really hope this feature will actually be included!
The commercial slogan of this phone is "The Speed You Need" making it clear that this phone is promised to be very efficient and fast!
Reaching the end of this article, it is finally time to talk money. According to our information, the new OnePlus 6 should be priced at around $749 which is more than the cost of the predecessor. However, it is still cheaper than some of the most popular cell phones out there. As a reminder, the iPhone X is about $999.
The price of OnePlus 6 is therefore still somewhat affordable for a smartphone of high quality, with a modern design and with very interesting and powerful technological features.
Finally, you will be able to confirm this information very soon! The Chinese brand will launch the phone on May 16th in London, around 6pms, so if you want to be the first to know all the details, watch the live broadcast on the official website of the brand.
The phone will probably be available a few days after its announcement, some sources predict its availability on May 21st. It is even expected that the brand will launch a special range of the OnePlus 6 in honor of the saga Avengers so that you can have your favorite hero on your OnePlus 6!
