With the first array of flagship smartphones already arrived, the focus will be now shifted towards the forthcoming flagship devices such as the OnePlus 6 and Xiaomi Mi 7. Today, a couple of real-life images of the OnePlus 6 have leaked online, which shows off the design of the smartphone in full glory. First up, the OnePlus 6 will have a glass body, which isn’t surprising because the company will be looking to add wireless charging feature. And to the front, we have that iPhone X-like notch which is heavily expected, of course, not a big deal.
The said OnePlus 6, as you can see in the image above has a better screen-to-body ratio as compared to the OnePlus 5T. Going for the notch design will help brands reduce the size of bezels on top and bottom and the same applies to OnePlus 6 as well. We have the on-screen navigation keys, and the device is running OxygenOS 5.1.0 ROM based on Android 8.1 Oreo, which would be a standard by the time the OnePlus 6 comes out.
The notch to the top houses the front-facing camera and earpiece, which is pretty much expected. But there seems to be a change in terms of button placements though. The power button and alert slider are placed to the right, and the volume rockers are placed to the left.
To the back, we have that shiny glass body which clears shows the phone used to capture the device. Nonetheless, the rear design is drastically different when compared to the OnePlus 5 or 5T. There are two vertically aligned rear cameras, followed by a LED flash and rectangle-shaped fingerprint scanner. Below the scanner, we have the OnePlus logo.
The back glass seems to be melted to the front like the Galaxy S9 devices. OnePlus already confirmed that the phone would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform and it would be interesting to see what additional features OnePlus will be adding to the OnePlus 6.
If this phone is anything close to the original one, it’ safe to assume that OnePlus will add the wireless charging feature to the OnePlus 6. But again, before the release of OnePlus 5, there were a lot of prototype devices leaked online, which differed from the final product. OnePlus might be doing the same this time around, so we suggest you take this news with a pinch of salt.
