OnePlus 6 final round-up: Most probable features, price, and availability details

OnePlus 6 final round-up: Most probable features, price, and availability details

In turn the price of its handsets has also steadily drifted upwards, towards those of the rival flagships it challenges, but the OnePlus 6 is still a firmly cheaper proposition than the competition it stands shoulder-to-shoulder with. That includes good design, impressive build quality, clean Android software with no bloatware, and specs rivaling and sometimes better than the Samsung Galaxy S9. That's very different from the OnePlus 5T that made of all metal, specifically anodized aluminum. HDR and Portrait Mode make their return as well. It also includes an improved camera, with optical and electronic image stabilisation and a dual-lens setup with 16MP and 20MP sensors with a f/1.7 aperture.

We do understand that many might be waiting for the OnePlus 6 in order to upgrade from their current smartphones. An excerpt from the press release from OnePlus mentioned that the OnePlus6 will be, "the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design", indicating that all future phones from OnePlus may ditch the aluminium backing in favour of the glass option.

If you want to know more about the OnePlus 6 head on over to the OnePlus website and check it out. In my time with the phone so far, I've found the clarity on OnePlus 6's display to be superb.

The OnePlus 5T has the same RAM and internal storage configuration options, but is outfitted with last year's Snapdragon 835 chipset.

Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covers the OnePlus 6's front and back. In fact, numerous details about the phone were earlier revealed by the OnePlus in the run up to the launch.

The OnePlus 6 AMOLED screen now measures 6.28 inches, while remaining at a Full HD resolution - that part hasn't grown at all.

OnePlus 6 launch: How to watch the live stream and what to expect

After months of speculations and teasers, OnePlus is all set to pull the wraps off the company's 2018 Android flagship later today. So, there is strong possibility that the device will support wireless charging, which was sorely missed in the nearly flawless predecessor (OnePlus 5T).

OnePlus is saying that despite the larger screen the OnePlus 6 should have similar battery life to the OnePlus 5 - we'll wait and see if that's true. According to a OnePlus spokesperson, the phone will survive everyday spills like an accidental trip to the toilet bowl, but it's not rated to go swimming.

The new flagship phone from the Chinese manufacturer is the latest in a four-year line of devices created to be a disruptor at the top of the smartphone market by offering premium features at a cut price. At a glittering event in London, the Chinese smartphone maker will take the wraps off its latest and greatest: OnePlus 6. The base model will sport 64GB of storage, along with 6GB of RAM. The new OnePlus 6 with dual cameras starts at just $529.

Finally, after the company shipped multiple smartphones without optical image stabilization (OIS), OnePlus has finally chose to add OIS to its next phone.

Disclosure: OnePlus sponsored Gadgets 360 correspondent's flights and hotel for the launch event in London. Currently, the OnePlus 5T has the fingerprint scanner placed at the back, due to its 18:9 display on the front. It's certainly disappointing that they won't be available at the same time as the OnePlus 6, that's for sure.
