OnePlus has been building the hype for its flagship offering for the past few weeks, but the launch date has led to a lot of confusion. This official teaser puts all that confusion to rest, and reveals when the flagship device will actually be unveiled to the world. In the past, OnePlus has held multiple events for the launch of its flagship smartphones and this year should not be any different. Here is what we know so far about the OnePlus 6:

OnePlus 6 is expected to bring a major redesign to the OnePlus family this year with the smartphone dropping the all-metal design in favor of a glass back. The front of the smartphone will also see minor changes with OnePlus 6 adopting a notched display, and sporting a nearly edge-to-edge display panel. Interestingly, the notch won’t be as wide as the one seen on the Apple iPhone X. Moreover, OnePlus will also allow its users to disable the notch within the software.

In terms of specifications, the OnePlus 6 is expected to feature a 6.2-inch AMOLED display supporting a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels, and taller aspect ratio of 19:9. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the flagship mobile platform from the San Diego-based semiconductor company. OnePlus is expected to offer OnePlus 6 with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and option for 64GB or 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. This is the first time, OnePlus will bumping up the storage on its smartphones to 256GB.

OnePlus 6, like its predecessor OnePlus 5T, will sport a dual rear camera system and the company is rumored to be working on improvements including new image sensors. With Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, Huawei P20 and P20 Pro having scored 97, 102 and 109 respectively on DxOMark, we expect OnePlus to arrive on a big score as well. OnePlus 6 is also expected to support some form of dust and water resistance and since it is switching to glass back, there is also a chance of the smartphone getting wireless charging support. There is no clarity on its pricing just yet but leaks originating from China indicate it will be more expensive than previous flagships from the company.
