OnePlus is gearing up to launch its upcoming flagship smartphone — OnePlus 6. The company has already stopped selling its OnePlus 5T in North America.
While the company is still a few weeks away from launching OnePlus 6, well-known leaker Evan Blass has posted a new image of the upcoming smartphone on Twitter, showcasing the phone’s back panel.
The leaked image shows the back panel with a woodgrain texture. Also, it is clearly seen that the phone has retained the 3.5mm audio jack, which most smartphone manufacturers are ditching. Along with the headphone jack, there’s also a USB Type-C port and a speaker grille.
Further, the phone has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, placed right below the camera module. As of the camera, the image hints at dual-camera setup, with sensors stacked vertically. Since fingerprint sensor is at the back, the OnePlus 6 will come with the trendy full-screen display, which OnePlus first introduced with the OP5T.
While earlier leaks suggested that the OP6 could come with glass back panel, this newly leaked image shows that the phone uses wood/bamboo or brushed metal. The textured finish on the back panel is not because of the skin as there’s a tag at the bottom which reads “Designed by OnePlus.”
Based on the previously leaked details, the OnePlus 6 will feature a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels with 19:9 aspect ratio. The phone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship processor — Snapdragon 845 clocked at 2.7GHz, which is powering almost all of the flagship smartphones announced this year.
The smartphone will pack 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. The highest configuration model of OP6 will have 8GB RAM with 256GB onboard storage and is expected to be priced at $749.
As of the camera department, the rear camera of the OnePlus 6 is said to be consisting of 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor with a f/1.7 aperture on both lenses. The camera specs are exactly the same as the company’s current flagship device — OnePlus 5T. On the front side, the phone will come equipped with a 20-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
Coming to the software, it is said that the OnePlus 6 will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own Oxygen OS custom interface. The phone will be fuelled by a 3,450mAh battery and we expect that it will support the company’s own fast charging technology — Dash Charging.
