A lot of information on the specs and features of the OnePlus 6 have appeared in the recent weeks. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were the first phones from the company to house dual camera setup. The Chinese manufacturer had used horizontal design for the dual cameras of OP5 and OP5T. However, recent rumors have claimed that the company has opted for a vertical dual camera setup for the OnePlus 6. Fresh photos have appeared of cases for OnePlus 6 have appeared to corroborate on its new design for the back panel.
The first image belongs to the silicone case of the OnePlus 6 while the other one seems like a hard case. Both the cases have similar cutouts for dual cameras and its LED flash and fingerprint scanner. The cutouts are same as the pinkish-red colored case that was revealed by GizmoChina at the beginning of this month. Multiple evidences show that OP6 won’t be sporting a different rear design than its predecessor models.
OnePlus is known for placing an Alert Slider button on the left edge of its phones. However, the cutout for the Alert Slider seems to be on the right side of the OP6’s silicon case. The Power key is placed below the Alert Slider on the right edge. The volume controllers continue to exist on the left side of the phone. The hard case has a larger cutout on the left edge which indicates that it could house the Alert Slider as well as the volume keys.
OnePlus has recently released a OnePlus 6 teaser that revealed that the Alert Slider of the phone can used for adjusting the camera focus. The bottom side of both cases show cutouts for 3.5mm audio jack, external speaker and USB-C port. As far as the front design of the OnePlus 6, the below shown render has revealed that it will be arriving with a notched screen.
OnePlus 6 has gone out of stock in North America and India in the recent past. This indicates that the launch of the OP6 is drawing near. Even though the company is yet to confirm on the launch date for the phone, a leaked photo that had appeared yesterday claimed that it may launch in China on May 5. Since OnePlus is known for debuting its phones first in overseas market before making it official in China, it is speculated that the OP6 may get unveiled at the end of this month.
