OnePlus is no doubt the number 1 brand in the premium segment as far as India is concerned. OnePlus 5T was India’s top-selling premium Smartphone in Q1 of 2018 according to Counterpoint Research. It captured a huge 25% share and the performance was no surprise considering the popularity of previous OnePlus models – OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5.
OnePlus started in the year 2013 with a simple idea ~ of making a better Phone which would enable the users to do something amazing and meaningful. With this thought in mind the company brought together exceptional talent from all over the globe and pursued the highest possible professional, personal, and ethical standards. The results are for all to see and admire.
Never Settle is the guiding philosophy behind the company’s forays in the global market and the Indian Smartphone scene is ready to be disrupted again with the launch of OnePlus 6. There have been several leaks in the past few months and we know a lot about the Specifications and the features of this Premium Mobile.
It will feature a 6.28 inch screen with an iPhone X-like notch and a headphone jack. The screen-to-body ratio will be around 90% and it will come with a glass rear which sets it apart from the previous OnePlus models which featured metal unibody. The resolution is supposed to be 2280 * 1080 pixels and the aspect ratio 19:9. The rear features a fingerprint scanner and a vertical camera stack. Expected colours are Black and White. Battery 3,450 mAh. Selfie camera 20 MP and dual rear cameras 20 MP + 16 MP.
OnePlus 6 will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and feature 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM. There are rumours of 2 cheaper variants with less RAM and internal storage as well. The operating system will be the latest Android 8.1 and it may feature a more advanced facial recognition system than the 5T. There will be an Avengers : Infinity Wars edition as well. Recently OnePlus 6 grabbed headlines as it became the first Smartphone ever to shoot the cover photo for a magazine in India! Aditi Rao Hydari was presented in all her splendour on the VOGUE India cover through a OnePlus 6 lens.
