1. Notch Screen

The phone comes with a notch 6.3 inch display along with a 19:9 OLED display. What is applause-worthy is that the notch can be hidden too by putting a black bar on the screen around it.

2. Top-end Hardware
The OnePlus 6 comes with a Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 graphics, and up to 8GB of RAM and a maximum of 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage, which gives you the 'speed you need'.

3. Dual Rear Camera
The dual camera set-up comes with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), and you can now shoot faux-bokeh portrait mode pictures with the front as well as the rear cameras.

4. New All-Glass Design
The OnePlus 6 is a little smaller than the 6-inch Google Pixel 2 XL, but offers more vertical screen space and makes the Pixel’s bezels feel crude and chunky by comparison.

While the Indian market is waiting to see how the phone will be priced, here's a look at how the flagship smartphone has been priced globally:

6+64 GB - $529
8+128 GB - $579
8+256 GB - $629

OnePlus has also provided fans with the chance to pre-book the OnePlus 6 on Amazon.in with added benefits, prior to its official launch in India.

OnePlus had partnered with Amazon.in for a 'Fast AF' sale, between 13-16 May, wherein customers can buy a Gift Card worth Rs 1,000 to be used to buy the OnePlus 6 between 21 and 22 May 2018 and get Amazon Pay Balance worth Rs 1,000 in addition to aforementioned offers.

The company will also be hosting pop-up events across eight Indian cities, including Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad between 21-22 May 2018.

Fans will be able to experience and purchase the powerful and stylish OnePlus 6 at these pop-up stores over two days, on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Across the globe pop-ups will be held in New York, London, Paris, Milan and Beijing.

The OnePlus 6 will be available for purchase on OnePlus.in, Amazon.in, OnePlus Experience store as well as all other OnePlus offline sales channels.
