The company is set to unveil it as part of a global launch event in London, which will be livestreamed around the world.

Avengers Edition with 8GB RAM + 265GB ROM at United States dollars 629.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus will be holding an event in London on Wednesday to unveil the most anticipated smartphone of this year, the OnePlus 6.

We'll be sure to check out these new earphones after the event is finished. From what the company has revealed yet, the device will offer the biggest screen on a OnePlus phone yet, but without increasing the phone's footprint. This year OnePlus promises a phone with no compromises, the latest version of Android, a high-end camera, water-resistance and so much more. And with the OnePlus 6, the pricing is quite fair indeed. Using a standard USB-C cable, you should be able to get a full five hours of use with just 10 minutes of charging.

Yes, the new OnePlus 6 delivers an experience similar to the Galaxy Note 8 or iPhone X, and it's almost 50% cheaper.

Snapdragon 845 is inside with 6GB / 8GB RAM and 64GB/ 128GB/ 256GB ROM options. The Ebony Wood bumper case may be also priced at Rs. 1,990 while the Nylon Black bumper may cost Rs. 1,490. It includes 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage.

Overall, the OnePlus 6 is a solid smartphone that will prove adequate for everyone who is budget conscious and yet desires a flagship device, exactly the way it should be. A 256 GB version of OnePlus 6 with 8 GB RAM is also coming but there is no information as of now about its price.


Let's start with the elephant in the room.

Discounts: On the purchase of OnePlus 6, customers can avail a discount of Rs 2,000 on SBI Credit and Debit card transactions during the first week. In order to keep up with the likes of Huawei's P20 Pro and Samsung's Galaxy S9+, it needs to be.

However, where the OnePlus 6 is lagging behind its smartphone photography rivals is in its secondary camera. The camera clicks 16-megapixel images.

While the rear side features 20MP and 16MP dual camera sensors, the front-facing camera features a 16MP sensor with enhanced capabilities. You might not believe me looking at the headline specs - both dual-cameras look pretty much identical - but the main f.1.7, 16-megapixel camera has a 19% larger sensor than last year's phone.

If you're tempted, the OnePlus Bullets Wireless will be available for £69 from the OnePlus website.

The photos attached to the listing showed that the OnePlus 6 features an edge-to-edge display, complete with an iPhone X-style "notch" to house the front camera, as well as a repositioned rear camera and fingerprint sensor. An excerpt from the press release from OnePlus mentioned that the OnePlus6 will be, "the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design", indicating that all future phones from OnePlus may ditch the aluminium backing in favour of the glass option. While its design language is definitely indebted to the iPhone X (just like the OnePlus 5 was indebted to the iPhone 7), more so than it predecessor, the OnePlus 6 feels like its own device.
