OnePlus 6 launch date has been officially confirmed by the brand, with the company’s China website giving details of the event. The OnePlus 6 launch event will be held on May 17 at 10am CST (7:30am IST) in Beijing, China. The event will be open to the public and fans need to pay a fee of CNY 99 (roughly Rs. 1,000) to attend the launch. This development comes within a week of OnePlus’s exclusive partner Amazon India confirming the OnePlus 6 India launch will be “soon,”and putting up a dedicated web page for the handset; also the OnePlus 5T has gone out of stock in India ahead of the unveiling.
One of the most highly anticipated smartphones because of its high-end hardware and relatively affordable price tag, the OnePlus 6 is being promoted with the tagline “The Speed You Need.” This likely alludes to the Snapdragon 845 SoC and 8GB RAM.
As part of the programme, invited buyers will be able to use the OnePlus 6 before launch and be able to write detailed community reviews of the flagship. Submissions are open till 10pm EDT (7am IST) on May 2 and the final reviewer squad will be announced by 10pm EDT (7am IST) on May 12.
OnePlus 6 – Specs & more.
Without showing off any of the phone itself, this teaser confirms some important information, first and foremost, the name. OnePlus’ Carl Pei didn’t officially confirm that information in an interview last month, but this teaser all but confirms that the company’s upcoming flagship will be the “OnePlus 6,” as everyone expected.
The other thing this teaser hints at is “speed,” with the phrase “the speed you need.” OnePlus has never really skimped on specifications, and clearly, the OnePlus 6 isn’t going to be an exception. Early rumors have pointed to a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, and potentially a massive amount of storage as well.
Further, we already know that this phone is going to have a notched display, which has been the main topic of controversy so far. The phone is also expected to have some different design variants, another dual-camera setup, and a rear fingerprint sensor.
