The OnePlus 6 has been officially announced and it comes with a notch on its display. The device will be available on May 22 at $ 529.
The OnePlus 6 has a all-metal design for all-glass design and is available in the colors black, mirror black and silk white. Despite a glass cover OnePlus contained no wireless charging. OnePlus says that the device is waterproof, but does not have an IP rating according to Android Police. Perhaps the handset can only survive light rain or be dropped in a shallow puddle. This does not seem to be the type of device that should be submerged in deep water.
The company's signature alert slider returns to the OnePlus 6, but is now on the right side of the device. The company said it had to move the alarm slider due to the new layout of the phone's components, according to The Verge. In addition to the USB Type-C port, the phone also has a headphone jack and a lowest speaker.
The device comes with a 6.2-inch AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 and an aspect ratio of 19 : 9. Since this is the new smartphone trend, the OnePlus 6 also comes with a notch on its display. The score is much smaller than what is found on the iPhone X and can be hidden by software options.
Inside, the OnePlus 6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. There is also a 256 GB model, but it will only be available for the midnight black version. The battery capacity of the OnePlus 6 is the same as that of the OnePlus 5T and this is a 3.300mAh battery. The battery continues to support the company's rapid charge technology Dash Charge.
There is a dual-camera setup on the back of the OnePlus 6 that has seen a slight improvement. The handset comes with a 16 megapixel camera and secondary 20 megapixel shooter. Both cameras are equipped with a f / 1.7 lens, but the 16MP camera is equipped with a sensor that is 19 percent larger than the 5T. The 16MP camera also has an optical image stabilizer.
Like its predecessor, the OnePlus 6's dual cameras feature advanced HDR technology based on the company's algorithm. The cameras, including the 16 MP front-firearm, also support portrait mode to deliver blurry backgrounds. OnePlus has even added new bokeh effects for portrait photos.
As far as the software is concerned, the OnePlus 6 comes with Android 8.1 Oreo, with the latest version of Oxygen OS running on top. The device supports Google's Treble project to deliver faster software updates, and users can also participate in the Android P-Beta.
The OnePlus 6 will be available from May 22 in the US and Europe for its OnePlus online store. All variants will be available for start. The $ 529 model is the mirror black version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of memory. Meanwhile, the 8GB RAM / 128GB model costs $ 579, while the 8GB RAM / 256GB model costs $ 629.
