OnePlus 6 launched: Price, specifications and other features

OnePlus 6 launched: Price, specifications and other features

OnePlus announced the device today at a launch event in London, England.

Well, if you are wondering that how you all will able to see the Live OnePLus Launch Live Stream then don't worry.

Although, users will not find it too unique - there are several phones nowadays with glass back metal frame - the workmanship on the OnePlus 6 is top notch. Finally, a limited edition Silk White model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will be made available for $579. The company used a manufacturing process that allowed it to make the glass feel like ceramic.

At the top of the display, unfortunately, there's a notch. An excerpt from the press release from OnePlus mentioned that the OnePlus6 will be, "the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design", indicating that all future phones from OnePlus may ditch the aluminium backing in favour of the glass option.

For the first time, the company has gone with a glass back - both the front and back of the phone are enchased in Gorilla Glass 5. Altogether the device delivers a 90% Screen to body ratio which is great.

Speed is the name of the game for OnePlus this year and it has plenty of it to offer with its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6 release

Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (SDM845) with octa-core CPU 4×2.7 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver. This has been coupled with the Adreno 630 GPU to help improve gaming and performance. However, previous leaks that have come via accidentally-published Amazon pages have generally tended to be accurate, so we'd be exceedingly surprised if these details are far off the mark. But Dash Charge remains. It can give a day's power in just 30 minutes of charging.

A new dual camera system with optical image stabilisation hopes to keep pace with rivals, placed vertically on the back and offering better low-light shots and portrait mode. OnePlus added a bunch of new effects to Portrait Mode on the OnePlus 6, as well as Advanced HDR for more vibrant colors. It will not take a longer time to process the images. In the U.S you can directly buy from the OnePlus store since the device is sold directly without any carrier bundling.

Pushing to rival the likes of Apple and Samsung, the OnePlus 6 now also supports one of 2018's on-trend features - slow-motion video. The feature only works with the OnePlus 5, 5T and 6 phones, however. It's one of the sleekest and most powerful Android smartphones in the world right now, and Android fans have finally been told when they can get their hands on it. They also apparently spent finding the right mix of glass to use in the phone, going through over 40 iterations before finding the one that has the ideal mix of usability, strength and looks. It is said that the developers at OnePlus have made around 200 optimizations to the OS to enhance the experience.

The fingerprint sensor at the rear is ever faster taking just 0.2 seconds. The phone has a 4x4 MIMO Cat16 LTE modem with a maximum throughput of 1 Gbps, plus 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.0.

The OnePlus 6 will be available from 22 May starting at £469 ($529) with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in a gloss "mirror" black colour, with a matt "midnight" black costing £519 with more memory and storage, and a "silk" white colour available on 5 June.
