OnePlus CEO Carl Pei had shared the first official image of the upcoming OnePlus 6 flagship phone at the end of the previous month. The image had revealed only a small portion of the notched area of the screen. Since then the rumor mill have been claiming that the OnePlus 6 may resemble the recently unveiled OPPO R15 smartphone from the front. Today, a new image showing the entire front design of the OnePlus 6 has appeared on Weibo. The image features a logo of DxO Mark, the popular camera benchmarking platform.
As it can be seen in the above image, the front side of the OnePlus 6 is mainly occupied by the screen. The side bezels are thin and its chin is slightly thick. The notch features the LED notification indicator, a selfie camera and an earpiece. The “see you soon” text present at the bottom is yet another hint that suggests that OnePlus 6’s arrival is close at hand.
The handset shown in the new render resembles with the leaked images of the OnePlus 6 that have appeared in the recent past. Even though the image appears legitimate since it seems to have come from OnePlus, it cannot be found on the website of DxOMark and OnePlus.
Pei had recently claimed that the appearance of the OnePlus 6 will be different from OPPO R15. However, the above image shows that the upcoming OnePlus flagship indeed resembles the OPPO R15. Like the OPPO phone, the OnePlus 6’s screen is likely to 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. Hence, it will be the first phone from the company to offer such a huge screen space. For people who dislike notched display, the company has already confirmed that it will be releasing a software update to hide the notch.
The Chinese manufacturer has already revealed that the Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage will be available on the OnePlus 6. This model is likely to cost 4,399 Yuan (~$697). It is also expected to arrive in variants like 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. These models are rumored to respectively cost 3,299 Yuan (~$523) and 3,799 Yuan (~$570).
Since the company has released a couple of teasers of the smartphone, it is speculated that the OnePlus 6 smartphone may get unveiled by the end of this month.
