OnePlus 6 is expected to be one of the most premium smartphone from the Chinese startup yet. The company has already confirmed that it will switch from all metal unibody design in the past to a metal and glass sandwich design. The leaks so far suggest that it will feature a 6.28-inch display with a notch surrounding the front camera and microphone. The design is expected to be similar to that of Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror Edition smartphones.

The OnePlus 6 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and option for either 64GB or 128GB or 256GB storage. It now feature a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S9+. There is no clarity on what camera changes OnePlus plans to offer this year. OnePlus 6 needs a really good camera especially when its immediate rivals Xiaomi and Huawei have leapfrogged in the camera department.
OnePlus 6 leaked in the form of render yesterday revealing the “Mirror Black” finish of the smartphone. An image posted by veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan also showed that the smartphone could be offered in a white variant as well. We will know what OnePlus has in store tomorrow.
