OnePlus is all set to launch its new “flagship killer” smartphone at a launch event in London on 16th May. The device is slated to launch in India and China on 17th May. Now, ahead of the smartphone’s launch, CAD renders of the OnePlus 6 have surfaced online, giving us a clear look into the phone’s design.
The renders shows that on the back side, there’s a dual camera setup at the top-center, with sensors stacked vertically. Below the camera sensors, there’s an LED flash and a fingerprint sensor. Below all these modules, there’s a OnePlus logo. There’s nothing else on the back side apart from these sensors and branding.
On the front side, majority of the portion has been covered by the display. The phone will come with an edge-to-edge display which will also have the trendy notch on the top side, housing the front-facing camera module as well as other sensors.
Based on the earlier leaks and company’s confirmations, the OnePlus will feature a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, having 19:9 aspect ratio. The company has already confirmed that the users will have an option to hide the notch.
Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with Adreno 630 graphics processor. The phone is expected to be available in 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM with 128GB internal storage or 256GB onboard storage, based on the variant.
On the back side, the dual camera setup will consist of a 20-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel camera lens, while the front-facing camera sensor will be of 16-megapixel. The smartphone will be running Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with the company’s own OxygenOS interface on top.
Connectivity-wise, the device is expected to support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, NFC, USB Type-C port, 4G VoLTE, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou. The phone will be fueled by a 3,300mAh battery with support for the company’s own fast charging technology — Dash Charge 2.0.
Previously, it was reported that the smartphone will be the first from the China-based company to feature IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. Further, the phone is also expected to support wireless charging.
While the OnePlus will be announced on 16th May, the company has also planned popup-events in several cities on May 21 where it will allow the fans to purchase the OnePlus 6 before its official release date. Along with the regular variant, the company is also gearing up to launch the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Limited Edition smartphone.
