  • Expected $520 USD price tag for 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and $749 USD for 8GB RAM + 256GB internal storage

The first thing that you will notice about the OnePlus 6 is how big it will be.

To be exact, a wholesome 6.28-inch Full HD screen with Optic AMOLED screen. It will also be their first smartphone that will be featuring a water-resistant feature. Then there’s also going to be an introduction to the new glass at the back. coupled with a Fullview display, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection makes for a tantalizing offering.

Regarding performance, OnePlus 6 will be faster with the high-end Snapdragon 845 chipset, blazingly fast Kryo octa-core processor, the great Adreno 630 graphics and either 6GB or a mind-boggling 8GB RAM. This combination should have no trouble blowing everything that you can throw at it, with some more left in the tank.

There doesn’t seem to be any changes to the camera aspect. But still, the formidable dual 16MP+20MP primary camera is classy. You will be getting top-notch quality photos that can even rival those carrying a DSLR. The 16MP secondary camera will then be complementing it greatly so that you can take great selfies each time.

Since there won’t be any expansion slot available, you can now go all they way up to 256GB of internal storage. 

Battery-wise, OnePlus 6 gets an upgrade to the battery now that there’s 3450 mAh battery that will be supplying the necessary juice to the smartphone. There’s also going to be Dash Charge and wireless charging as part of its feature.

Finally, the latest Oxygen OS that is based on Android Oreo 8.1 will be accompanying its release. The greatest hardware combine with the latest software makes for an excellent proposition.

Conclusion:

OnePlus 6 will want to be sprinting out of the block and make us forget about the jelly effect that seems to be bugging its predecessor. You can expect nothing but the best out of it, so be prepared to pay top dollar for getting the highest spec.

OnePlus 6 is set to be released on May 21st for approximately $520 USD price tag for the 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage variant and $749 USD for 8GB RAM + 256GB internal storage variant. Three colours will be available - Midnight Black, Lava Red and Sandstone White.
