The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled, showing various improvements and changes to its predecessors, the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5. It's also waterproof, although we don't have an exact IP rating just yet. Here's everything you need to know about ordering the OnePlus 6.
We've got a OnePlus 6 hands-on review detailing what's new, including a Snapdragon 845 processor, dual rear cameras and an expansive 6.28-inch notched display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. Is it worth it to upgrade from the OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 5 to the OnePlus 6? On the inside, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were nearly the same device but to look at, they seemed to be from different generations.
OnePlus is launching its latest phone unlocked, as usual, so you can use it with any GSM carrier you prefer thanks to support for 40 bands across Europe and the Americas. Of course, if they didn't include the notch at all, they wouldn't have to put this amount of work into the software, but it's the year of the notch so what more could you expect. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said OnePlus went with a glass back partially out of a practicality. Additionally, there's Bluetooth 5, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and NFC.
Lastly, the OnePlus 6 packs a 3,300 mAh battery underneath which draws power from USB Type-C port using the insanely fast Dash Charge technology.
The secondary camera is a 20MP F1.7 shooter, and while it doesn't have any optical zoom properties, it allows bokeh effects to be applied to the images. Both have f/1.7 apertures.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless in-ear headphones now official for $69
The OnePlus 6 marks the introduction of OnePlus' Slow Motion mode, which can capture high-definition video frame-by-frame with astonishing detail, ensuring users never miss the action. According to OnePlus, they've increased the size by 19 percent to 1.22 microns which allows for more light in lowly lit situations.
This is the first time OnePlus has made a pair of wireless headphones, and it's clear to see where the inspiration for the Bullets Wireless comes from. However, if no changes look incredible to you, or if you have a disdain for the iPhone X notch, then it might be a good idea to hold on to the OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 5 for now. In the near future, OnePlus plans to issue a software update that will bring portrait mode to the front-facing camera. New in this version are navigation gestures similar to what we're seeing in Android P. There are also under-the-hood optimizations to make the overall experience faster. While some of you may not like the notch on the OnePlus 6, the good news is that you can hide the notch whenever you want by heading over to the Settings menu.
At a starting price of $529, the OnePlus 6 is the most expensive OnePlus smartphone so far.
OnePlus will be offering its latest flagship in three colors, named Mirror Black, Midnight Black and a limited-edition Silk White.
As with any OnePlus device, the OnePlus 6 is lovely and functional in equal measure - now, with more screen than ever before. The limited edition Silk White model will come in a 8GB+128GB configuration only.
