OnePlus 6 – As many of you already know, OnePlus has a parent company called as BBK Electronics, a major Chinese manufacturer that also manufactures Oppo and Vivo smartphones. These phones are exclusive to China and India. Only one OnePlus has managed to make their presence globally. However, all these companies share similar design language. Chinese start-up OnePlus launched its first Android smartphone – the OnePlus One – in 2014. Since then, the company has ballooned to global fame, and now has seven handsets under its belt.
The company has racked up a loyal fan-base, largely because it sells smartphones with iPhone-rivalling specs for significantly lower prices. Next upcoming is the OnePlus 6, a new handset to replace the OnePlus 5T, which launched way back in November 2017. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed the new model’s existence in an interview with CNet. He added that the phone would launch late in the second quarter Q2 of 2018 – that’s sometime between April and June.
The leaks suggest a design shows a design strikingly similar to iPhone X. The phone boasts bezel-less display along with the ‘notch’, which seems to hold a selfie camera sensor and an earpiece grill. The bezels are pretty narrower, similar to the iPhone X.
However, the rear suggests that the company will stick to its old design language, especially with the horizontally stacked dual-camera setup. Unlike the iPhone X ditching the fingerprint reader, this phone is shown sporting a fingerprint scanner at the back, which means the Oppo R15 won’t be featuring an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
