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
  • Waterproofing
  • Alert Slider
  • Blue, White and Black colour options

Release Date

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.

Pricing

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.
