A fresh image of the OnePlus 6 smartphone has surfaced few hours ago. Even though some publication has claimed that the image belongs to a working prototype of the upcoming OnePlus flagship, it seems to show a placeholder.
In the below image, the notched display of the OnePlus 6 is surrounded by very slim bezels. The bezels are even thinner than the actual render of the phone that was revealed by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau (shown further below). Hence, it does not seem like a real OnePlus phone. However, the notched display will be providing the users of OP6 with the best viewing experience through the larger screen.
OnePlus 6 is rumored to feature a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen that will support an aspect ratio of 19:9. It is speculated that the handset will offer highest screen-to-body ratio on a OnePlus phone. It is speculated that the OP6 may a screen-to-body ratio of nearly 90 percent.
The near bezel-less OnePlus phone has three on-screen navigation buttons. Previous reports have revealed that the OP6 will support advanced full screen gestures. The notification icons are present on both the sides of the notch.
The OnePlus 6 resembles the iPhone X in appearance, but the OnePlus features a smaller notch that measures 19.61 x 7.68mm. The notch houses a selfie camera, a notification LED indicator, an earpiece and some other sensors.
Not only the frontside of the OnePlus 6 will have a difference compared to the predecessor models, but also its rear panel is expected to come with an overhaul improvement. Except for the OnePlus X mid-range phone that was launched in 2015 with a glass body, all the other OnePlus smartphones sport metallic chassis. The Chinese manufacturer has recently confirmed that OP6 will be coming with a glass rear. Moreover, the company has also confirmed that it will be a water-resistant phone. Recent rumors that the OnePlus 6 will be made available in multiple colors like Coral Blue, Purple and Black. Shown below is the realistic render of the OnePlus 6 created by well-known designer and tipster Benjamin Geskin.
OnePlus 6 is slated to get official globally on May 16. In China and India, it will be unveiled on May 17. A special edition OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition is also coming. It is speculated that the official sales of the OP6 will begin in India on May 22.
