We were also expecting the launch of OnePus 6 to be in May and the company met our expectation.
Not just the date, now we also know the prices. Recently a report by TrueTech claimed three variants of OnePlus 6 along with their expected prices. The basic variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage would be priced between Rs. 33,999 and Rs. 36,999. The next variant with 8 GB RAM and 128 Gb storage will cost between Rs 38,999-42,999. There will also be a special edition called OnePlus 6 Premium and will come with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. The expected pricing of this phone will be between Rs 44,999- 48,999.
The pricing range leaked by the report was already expected, but the interesting thing revealed in this report is about OnePlus 6 Premium edition. If the company calls it premium, there must be something special in this phone. I expect to get some details about the premium edition soon via few leaks.
OnePlus 6 will come with a 18:9 display having an iPhone X style notch. The phone will pack Snapdragon 845 and will be available in 6GB and 8 GB RAM models. There will be a dual rear camera and a high-end front camera.
Recently OnePlus also confirmed that its alert slider will also adjust the camera focus. We have no idea how this will work. But I am sure it will be interesting.
OnePlus has already started posting teasers, to show us glimpse of exciting features of OnePlus 6. we still have a whole month to get more leaks and interesting information of OnePlus 6.
It will be interesting to see how this phone will compete with other rivals to become the flagship killer. What are you expecting from OnePlus 6? Let us know in the comments.
