  • OnePlus 6 camera samples surfaces on the wild

Meanwhile, OnePlus grew from a little-known Chinese phone company with only a bunch of employees to a well-known among enthusiasts brand boasting millions of followers. The phone sports a 6.28-inch FullHD+ display (1080*2280p) with an iPhone X-like notch. It's an AMOLED screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and 2280 x 1080 pixel resolution.

The OnePlus 6 is powered by one of the most powerful processors on the market, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845, which improves performance by 30%, while being 10% more power efficient. Likewise, the base phone has 64GB of internal storage, while the range-topping model ups the ante with 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. However, the notch, which sits at the top of the 6.3-inch OLED display, does provide significantly more screen space without changing the dimensions of the OnePlus 6. However, OnePlus has switched out the metal body with the glass-on-metal design that is used in modern flagship smartphones, with Gorilla Glass 5 protecting both the front and back of the OnePlus 6. In June, the phone will also be available in "silk white". "This is the fastest flagship experience OnePlus has ever created", OnePlus said. Glass allows better for better transmission of radio waves.

In addition to unveiling the OnePlus 6 at its launch event today (May 16), OnePlus also announced its first foray into wireless headphones.

My heart usually sinks when a phone manufacturer tells me it has two products to tell me about (or in Nokia's case, six), but it's not so bad when that product isn't yet another smartphone.

OnePlus 5T itself came new changes for the OnePlus family as compared to the OnePlus 3 series. Despite adding a glass back to the mix, OnePlus did not also add inductive charging. Despite the absolutely tiny battery box (on the left-hand cable), OnePlus says the Bullets Wireless will last eight hours per charge, which is pretty good for this type of earphone. Also missing is IP certified water and dust proofing - though the phone can survive the occasional dampness, according to the company.

Yup! As expected, the OnePlus 6 features a screen covering almost all of its front side, but also has a cutout at the top where the front camera and earpiece reside.

Though its a little early to form a final verdict about the OnePlus 6, going by all the information we have so far, the device will be a definite generational leap in comparison to the OnePlus 5 or even the OnePlus 5T. There is an Optical Image Stabilizer on the dual rear camera setup, along with an all-new HDR algorithm which will definitely help the image get the best colour contrast.

New for this generation is a larger sensor size for the main shooter. Supporting the main camera is a second camera with a 20-megapixel sensor and f/1.7 lens. The smartphone also has a notch up top, however, it's smaller than the one on iPhone X as it doesn't house any special sensors, and is home only to the front camera, earpiece, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. There is also slow motion video capture, which is limited to 480fps at 720p, and 240fps at 1080p. At the same time OnePlus 6 users will be able to run Android P public beta on the smartphone. The base model with 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM retails at $529 (about RM2,100), while the 128GB and 256GB variants with 8GB of RAM go for $579 (approximately RM2,295) and $629 (around RM2,495) respectively.
