OnePlus 6 launch tonight

OnePlus 6 launch tonight

Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to purchase the OnePlus 6 on 21 May starting from 12PM as part of the Early Access sale and non-Prime users will be able to purchase the device from 22 May.

Unlike the metal unibody frames of the previous phones, the OnePlus 6 will sport an all-glass design. OnePlus has managed to keep us excited about the launch of the device with a regular dose of teases and forum posts talking about the upcoming features in the upcoming smartphone.

After months of leaks of rumours, OnePlus will introduce the OnePlus 6 smartphone in London today at 5pm BST (9:30pm IST).

The OnePlus 6 unveiling event will be live-streamed on the OnePlus official web portal and YouTube channel. Notably, Dash Charge is also expected to get an update. Option one is to book the phone through the Fast AF sale on Amazon India, which is available only till the end of the day today.

Built using four Kryo 385 Gold cores, the CPU would provide for 10-20 per cent bump in performance and up to 30 per cent boost in efficiency. But, it can be noted that the new phone houses Snapdragon 845 octa-core with latest Android Oreo software, both of which are said to be optimized to work efficiently with less consumption of power even while playing graphics-heavy games.

Another Apple inspiration for OnePlus would be iPhone X-like gestures on OnePlus 6. It is likely that the company will pack a dual camera setup with 20MP and 16MP sensors on the rear and a 16 MP camera sensor on the front for selfies.

As for the battery, we can expect no upgrades here with a 3,300 mAh unit which is the same as the one found in the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus has been working hard towards building hype around the smartphone for the past few months, touting features such as the improved camera, refreshed design with glass back, water resistance, and the notch above the display.

- OnePlus 6 will be available with up to 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

If latest reports are to be believed, the new phone will differ from the current generation OnePlus in one crucial aspect: the price. There will also be another more expensive 256GB variant. And the second top-end model (with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage) is expected to set you back by Rs 39,999.

- The OnePlus 6 will be powered by Snapdragon 845, a high-end processor that already powers the Samsung Galaxy S9 phones and will also feature in devices like the Google Pixel 3 this year.

However, despite trying, the smartphone maker may have chosen a very aggressive price for a flagship that could arguably give many expensive ones in its league a good run for their money.
