OnePlus 6 News, Release Date and More
With the OnePlus 6 event taking place yesterday,. I wanted to let you know everything we know about this new exciting smartphone to hit the market.
The event which was held in London was to announce its international release which is going to be on the 22nd May so not too long left to wait. The phone is able to be pre-ordered right now on certain phone networks here in the UK too.
This however is for the Midnight Black and Mirror Black versions. There’s also going to be a Silk White version too which goes on sale on June 5th. The price starts at £469 for the 64GB version which is a lot more than the OnePlus 5T. but still a great price for a decent handset. There’s also a 128GB variant which is being sold for £519 and a 256GB choice for £569.
OnePlus 6 Design
So what are you actually getting for that money? Well a pretty decent looking handset actually. It’s the biggest screened OnePlus handset to date with the screen coming in at 6.3 inches and is all screen except the notch at the top. Although not much real estate has been added to the actual phone overall. It looks absolutely stunning and paired with its Mirror Black rear, this is one sexy looking handset.
It’s actually 19:9 which means it’s super wide when holding horizontally. And there is also some Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back for you clumsies out there.
OnePlus 6 Camera
The two cameras on the back are for dual use, with one shooting at 16MP and the secondary camera at 20MP. The sensor has increased insize allowing more detail and light to enter the lens, and has been made by Sony. Optical image stabilisation is present too.
The usual photo modes are present and the phone can record up to a minute of slow motion footage at one time, and there is a 16MP selfie camera too for extra detail in your face shots.
OnePlus 6 Performance
Inside you can find a Snapdragon 845 flagship processor which is looking to be pretty powerful in the new handset. It’s also got 6GM RAM too as standard or 8GB on the more expensive variations. All versions come with Android 8.0 Oreo and users can even start on the Android P beta if they want.
The 3,300mAh battery has something called Dash Charge which means it can get a full day’s worth of power in around 30 minutes. Blinding stuff.
The rear finger print sensor is probably going to be most people’s choice of security, but there is some facial recognition going on too.
That’s all we know for now folks, but stay tuned as we will be trying our best to get hold of one for a more in-depth review soon.
