OnePlus 6 features leaked: Here's what to expect

OnePlus 6 will launch in an India event on May 17, 2018.

OnePlus has already announced an India launch event for the OnePlus 6 on May 17, 2018. The phone will be exclusive to Amazon India and will go on sale from May 21 for Amazon Prime members and will be available in open sale for everyone from May 22, 2018. There are no details regarding the price at the moment, but we expect that the phone will be priced Rs 35,000 onwards.

1. Notch Screen
This was confirmed by both the Co-founders of OnePlus, Carl Pei and Pete Lau. Carl Pei posted on twitter while Pete Lau posted a detailed blog post he explained why notch style display is better and why they opted for it on the OnePlus 6. From rumors it is evident that the OnePlus 6 will have a 6-inch or 6.2-inch Notch style screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The only thing we don't know for sure is if it will be an IPS panel or an Amoled panel which the company has used on its previous devices.

2. Top-end Hardware
Also confirmed by the company, the OnePlus 6 will be powered by Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 845 processor. The company posted a teaser image on Weibo which showed Snapdragon 845 processor as well as teased about 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. We expect the phone to come with various RAM and storage options including 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB storage. We don't have any major rumors about the battery, but it is expected to be a 3,400 or 3,500mAh battery.

3. Dual Rear Camera
OnePlus offered dual cameras on both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. So, it's obvious that the OnePlus 6 will also have dual camera. From the multiple leaked images of the phone and cases of the phone, it is clear that the OnePlus 6 has dual cameras, but they are positioned differently. This time, OnePlus has opted for a vertically stacked dual camera setup which is placed on the top center of the phone. The only thing we felt missing in the OnePlus 5/5T was optical image stabilization (OIS), we hope OnePlus 6 camera comes with OIS - none of the leaks so far indicate if the phone has OIS or not.

4. New All Glass Design
Image leaks of the OnePlus 6 indicate that the phone will have a reflective glass rear, and this was confirmed by the Company also recently. Up till now, OnePlus has stuck to either metal or sandstone finish on its devices, so the OnePlus 6 would be the first device to come with an all glass body. Again, while there are no rumors regarding wireless charging, the glass body is a big indication that it might be one of the new features of the phone.

5. Avengers Edition
OnePlus also confirmed that they will be launching a Marvel Avengers Limited Edition of the OnePlus 6 just like they did for Star Wars. The limited-edition device has been teased in videos and shows a textured back instead of the plain glass back. We expect the phone will have exclusive wallpapers and ringtones from the Avengers movie.
