OnePlus 6 Expectations
OnePlus has just launched the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus 6 will be coming next year so let's first talk about the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus has updated its flagship phone OnePlus 5 just after 5 months of launch. Not at a lot has changed though. OnePlus 5T has addressed the complaint of not having a bezel-less display by adding a 6 inch AMOLED display which looks beautiful.
Here's how the OnePlus 5T looks:
Other changes are in the camera department to improve the low light performance of the camera. Now the back camera setup does not include a telephoto lens so you cannot zoom 2X without losing image quality. Another new feature addition is that you can unlock your phone using face recognition. OnePlus 5T uses the front camera to recognise your face and it is crazy fast. OnePlus 5T doesn't have a complex setup like we have seen on the iPhone X so we will to see how secure is OnePlus 5T's face recognition.

Now, what do we expect from OnePlus 6?
OnePlus claims that its devices are flagship killer. The OnePlus One actually was a flagship killer but what about OnePlus 2/3/3T/5/5T? Do they deserve the title of flagship killers? I don't think so. These are great phones but they are not flagship killers.
Now in OnePlus 5T, they have added a bezel-less display but wireless charging and water resistance are some of the flagship features that are missing.
OnePlus 5 came out in mid-2017 and it didn't have a bezel-less display, wireless charging or IP rating for water/dust resistance. Now in OnePlus 5T, they have added a bezel-less display but wireless charging and water resistance are some of the flagship features that are missing. All major flagships like the LG G6, LG V30, Samsung Note 8, iPhone 8/8 Plus/X all of them have these features. So if OnePlus really wants to call it flagship killer they need to add these features in the OnePlus 6. One more flagship feature that is missing is a Quad HD display.
On the camera side, OnePlus 5T doesn't have OIS and the camera setup doesn't have a telephoto lens or a wide angle lens. We expect that OnePlus will add OIS in the upcoming OnePlus 6.
Plus, It would be great if they don't follow the dumb move of removing the headphone jack.
OnePlus 6 Expected Specifications:
- Display: Quad HD 6.0 Inch AMOLED Display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
- Operating System: Android 8.1
- Chipset/Processor: Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Chipset
- Memory: 2 Variants - 6GB RAM/128GB ROM and 8GB RAM/256GB ROM
- Primary Camera: Dual 20MP + 20MP with Dual LED flash with OIS
- Front Camera: 16MP
- Connectivity: Latest Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C reversible connector
- Battery: Non- Removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery
- Wireless Charging
- IP68 Water and Dust Proof
Some other features like a better audio DAC, fingerprint sensor under the display, MicroSD slot will make OnePlus 6 even better.
OnePlus 6 Price in India
As we expect OnePlus to add flagship features like wireless charging, Quad HD display, and water resistance, we think the cost of making the device will go up and the price will go up as well. We will expect a price of around Rs. 37000 for 128GB variant and Rs. 43000 for 256GB variant. In the US the price might be $499 for the base model.
OnePlus 6 Release Date
As usual, we expect OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 6 in mid-2018 which will be June or July of 2018. Latest leaks suggest that OnePlus 6 is coming in March 2018. The leak was wrong and our guess was right, OnePlus 6 is coming in June 2018. So you can expect India launch at the same time. We are expecting a release date in the first week of June. OnePlus CEO has confirmed this news. One surprise that we are getting with this leak/rumor is that OnePlus 6 will come with a fingerprint scanner under the display. This will be something new and useful. We believe customers should be given as many choices as possible so having both face recognition and fingerprint sensor is the way to go.
We expect that OnePlus will launch the device globally and it will be available everywhere on the same date. OnePlus might continue its partnership with Amazon in India. We will update the exact date whenever we get that information.
OnePlus 6 Rumours
Latest Rumor: OnePlus 6 will be coming with a fingerprint sensor which will be placed under the display.
OnePlus 6 might become the first smartphone under the display scanner. Vivo has launched the first smartphone with under the display scanner, still, we would like OnePlus to go with under the display fingerprint scanner in the OnePlus 6.
If you don't want to wait, then we would suggest you OnePlus 5T(Buy OnePlus 5T from Amazon) which we think is an excellent device. It even beats the expensive Apple iPhone X in real-world speed tests. Take a look at our comparison of OnePlus 5T and iPhone X.
Fresh leaks suggest that Oppo R15 will have a notch on the top like we have seen on iPhone X. The OPPO R15 and R15 Plus will likely have 6-inch and 6.4-inch displays, respectively. OnePlus 5T was similar to Oppo R11S and so here as well the OnePlus 6 will probably resemble the OPPO R15 and R15 Plus quite a bit, so whatever OPPO decides to announced will affect OnePlus consumers as well, at least that was the case last year.
Here are few leaked images. Thanks to Android Headlines for sharing these.
The display will have a notch on the top.
Here's the back side:
Update: 7th March
According to latest report from androidcentral, OnePlus 6 will have a 19:9 display with a notch on the top. The chipset will be Snapdragon 845 which is what we expected.
