OnePlus 6 Launched With SD845, Glass Back & Notched Display
Finally, after leaking the device for more than 2 months, OnePlus has finally launched its flagship the OnePlus 6 in an international event in London. The OnePlus 6 boasts the iconic notch which has become a symbol of flagships in 2018. Following up is a 6.28-inch display upfront while having a dimension similar to OnePlus 5T, you can say the device is a whole lot of screen state and a thin bezel at the bottom.
Design-wise, the device has a premium look thanks to its glass back and the metal frame surrounding it. You will also be pleased to know that the OnePus 6 still comes equipped with a 3.5mm headphones so your good old pair of headphones are not taking the dumpster ride anytime soon. Also this time, OnePlus has officially announced that OnePlus 6 has a water-resistance body and can survive “a drop in the sink or a spilled glass of water”. But OnePlus didn’t mention about IP rating also suggest not to take OnePlus 6 for a swim.
Under-the-hood, the OnePlus 6 features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB or 256GB of storage. Packing such a specs sheet, it will be shocking if you find anything that slows down this device even a little. Furthermore, powering the device is a 3,300 mAh battery which supports dash charge. For those of you who don’t know dash charge will give you enough juice to last through the day in just 30 minutes. So, even if you forget to charge your device in the night, OnePlus has got you covered.
No flagship is complete without a great set of cameras, and OnePlus 6 takes you away in this department as well. The device features a dual camera setup 16MP ( f/1.7, 1.22µm, OIS+EIS) + 20MP (f/1.7, 1.0µm) in the rear. The selfie snapper is a 16MP (f/2.0, 1.0µm) sensor which will be more than enough for all your needs. This time OnePlus has OIS in the rear camera which will lead to smoother videos and better pictures in the low light.
The OnePlus 6 runs on Oxygen OS 5.1 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and it will be one of the first devices to receive Android updates which will make sure you always have latest features and security updates in the device. Furthermore, you can also try out the Android P beta on the OnePlus 6 as soon as you get it. On the security front, the phone features a fingerprint reader on the back and face unlock feature up front which is amazingly fast. So, you don’t have to worry about getting your phone unlock.
The only con of the device we can say is the pricing which is on the expensive side. The device costs $529 (~NPR 57,598) for 6GB+64GB variant, $579 (~NPR 63,042) for 8GB+128GB variant and finally $629 (~NPR 68,480) for 8GB+256GB variant which makes OnePlus 6 is the most expensive device till date from the manufacturer. On the bright side though, OnePlus 6 is still a lot cheaper than other flagships, which are nearing $1000 this time.
According to the company, the OnePlus 6 will be globally available from May 22 and there will also be pop-up events on May 21, which will allow you to buy the handset. It remains to be seen when the device will be heading to Nepal.
