There has been a lot of hype with the OnePlus 6 in recent weeks, they are a favourite brand with tech geeks as they offer fantastic specs at affordable prices.
The launch event they are holding actually required you to buy a ticket so the community can take part too, rather than just press. It sold out within hours. I bet there are not many companies that can make you pay to be at a product launch.
A lot of the specifications have been leaked and rumoured, some are guaranteed, some are just strong rumours.
The full specification is claimed to be:
- 6in 2880×1440 QHD+ 18:9 display with notch
- Glass design with wireless charging support
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC
- 8GB RAM, 256GB built-in storage
- Android 8.1 Oreo OS
- Dual-lens 20MP/16MP rear-facing camera with ‘Super Slo Mo'
- Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock
- Dash Charge support
- Alert Slider
- Blue, White and Black colour options
It is being officially launched in London on 16th of May, and if you bought tickets for the even they guarantee you will get a swag bag that is worth more than the ticket. Last year this included a discount on the phone itself.
Alleged pricing details for the OnePlus 6 have surfaced online, courtesy of True-Tech. It has heard from a “reliable source” that the 64GB variant will be priced at Rs 36,999 in India (around £400), while the 128GB variant will fetch Rs 39,999 (around £440). There's no word as to how much the rumoured 256GB OnePlus 6 handset will cost. Other leaks have suggested as low as £374 which I think is highly unlikely. The OnePlus 5T cost £449 and it is likely this will cost a bit more following the trend of previous generations.
