In a recent post on the OnePlus forum, CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that OnePlus 6 will be available in a 256GB storage option, which is definitely a first for the company. Lau also revealed that the device will be equipped with 8GB of RAM on-board.
“Understanding the relationship between people and smartphones, we brainstormed with our community of OnePlus users to learn what the users want most – a flexible, light and quick experience. Keeping these parameters at heart, we have conceptualized the OnePlus 6. To make this experience a reality we have established within our ranks a special R&D unit, called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient). The one goal of this unit is to ensure that we can transcend the current norm with providing our users with what we believe to be a truly ‘burdenless’ user experience,” Lau’s post reads.
Earlier today, OnePlus also teased a four second video today, which confirmed that the the smartphone will be called “OnePlus 6”, so it wasn’t much of a revelation. But we are confident, today’s teaser is the beginning to a hoard of many more teasers coming our way from OnePlus.
The 256GB variant of OnePlus 6 was widely rumored, but this is the first time the company has officially talked about it. In the past, OnePlus has also confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Last week, company co-founder Carl Pei also confirmed that OnePlus 6 will feature a notch. The company seems to be following on the footsteps of sister brand Oppo, which also embraced notch for its flagship R15 and Oppo F7 smartphones. In fact, it is widely believed that OnePlus 6 is going to imitate the design of the Oppo R15.
