OnePlus has just published a teaser image hinting at the presence of a dedicated heart rate sensor on the handset. The image does not explicitly confirm the presence of the sensor, but it contains an electrocardiogram with a 6 in the middle which suggests that it may indeed be present.
Heart rate monitoring is a popular feature on smartwatches, smart bands, and similar fitness trackers. Thanks to heart rate sensor we can easily analyze our level of fatigue while we are busy with a physical activity. With the wearable market not making the same numbers as the smartphones market, having a heart sensor on the OnePlus 6 may be an interesting feature for many who do not want a wearable to monitor their activity.
OnePlus 6 will be officially unveiled in China on May 17 by 10:00. It is said to feature a 6.28-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio (due to the notch) and a Full HD+ 1080p resolution. The internals will include an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage depending on the variant. There should also be a 20 + 16 MP dual rear camera.
