At the press event we attended yesterday in London, OnePlus unleashed its latest flagship killer, the OnePlus 6. And yes, it is a beast of a phone like all its predecessors packing Qualcomm’s latest chipset, the Snapdragon 845, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of ROM, a dual main camera with optical and electronic image stabilization, and more importantly, it runs Oxygen OS v5.1 ROM based on Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo.
OnePlus 6 features a 6.3-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio and it has a notch like most Asian flagship smartphones announced in 2018. Made almost entirely of Gorilla Glass 5 (glass panels front and back), the sixth generation Oneplus phone is water-resistant,but it lacks wireless charging for some reason. But don’t fret, it has fast charging with the help of a Dash Charge wall adapter and a USB-C cable included in the retail box. And there is a 3.5mm headphones jack too.
There is a lot of A.I. based functionality embedded and working behind the scenes in this brand new OnePlus phone. And because it has such a huge display with very slim bezels, you’ll be able to use gestures to browse through its menus and settings.
The main camera comes with dual sensors: 16MP Sony IMX 519 with f/1.7 aperture and dual LED Flash plus OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization); the second sensor is a 20MP Sony IMX 376K with the same f/1.7 aperture. This dual camera is capable of shooting videos in 4K at 60 fps and 720p in slow-motion at 480 fps.
