Moreover, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau already confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be arriving in quarter two of 2018. With that being said, the smartphone is expected to hit the market shelves in June.
OnePlus 6 Specs and Features
When it comes to specs and features, Lau confirmed during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that the OnePlus 6 would be engineered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. He further stated that the reason behind using this chipset is because “there’s no other choice.”
Nevertheless, Lau isn’t 100% certain whether the Chinese tech company would launch the second flagship, which might be OnePlus 6T this year. But then, it is anticipated that the OnePlus 6T will hit the store shelves towards the end of 2018.
In addition, there have been talks suggesting that the OnePlus 6 would arrive sporting an advanced Face Unlock feature. This move is to take on Apple’s Face ID and Samsung Galaxy S9’s Intelligent Scan. It is also believed that OnePlus will utilize a 3D infrared module to improve security. The Chinese tech company will integrate a top bezel as an alternative for iPhone X-like notch. Lastly, the upcoming flagship smartphone will reportedly house an enormous 8GB of RAM that will aid the Snapdragon 845 processor.
As of this moment, these are the known information about the OnePlus 6. Please stay tuned for future updates!
