In the tradition of one-upping its ultra-expensive Android OEMs, OnePlus has unveiled its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 6. And true to its iconic banner—”flagship killer”—it looks are a killer and ships with specs fit for a proper flagship.
The internals is no joke: Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 GPU, up to 8GB RAM, and the latest version of Oxygen OS based on Android Oreo 8.1, just to name the most key specs. The hardware it ships with, too, are impressive: coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the phone gets a faint but noticeable layer of sheen, making the device look very expensive. The fingerprint sensor, now a bubble rather than a perfectly round shape, is mounted still at the back of the device. The 3.5mm headphone jack is still here.
As for the cameras, they’re promising. The rear camera sports both a wide angle (f1.7 16MP sensor with OIS) and telephoto lens (f1.7 20MP sensor), just to give LG and Samsung a run for their money. The front-facing camera has an f.20 16MP sensor meanwhile.
