Adjust Comment Print

Today is the day OnePlus launches the OnePlus 6, the latest in its line of budget premium-tier smartphones.

Overall, the OnePlus 6 is a solid smartphone that will prove adequate for everyone who is budget conscious and yet desires a flagship device, exactly the way it should be.

We are not expecting a bunch of surprises from the event, as numerous details have already been leaked out. The company kicked off the event by unveiling the new OnePlus Wireless Bullets. Here, the company says it believes Dash Charge remains the best charging solution for its fans. I've already had my hands on the OnePlus 6 for a while now, and I'll share my initial impressions in this post. With how many people are using their phone as their primary way to surf the web and watch videos, it definitely makes the OnePlus 6 a more attractive option. It is complemented by the 6GB and 8GB RAM options. More expensive models include 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

OnePlus will offer the latest smartphone in Mirror Black, Midnight Black and White colour.

Keep an eye out for Talk Android's review on the OnePlus 6 soon, and be sure to let us know what your thoughts are below.

We have been testing the phone for a while and the most striking thing about this phone is it's design. There are still two cameras - three like the way Huawei P20 Pro packs in aren't really needed to be honest.

In terms of camera hardware, the module borrowed from the OppoR15 Pro has proven to be technically very promising, but Oppo's software seemed to prevent better results. This 16 megapixel and 20 megapixel dual-lens rear camera, according to the listing, features optical image stabilisation, portrait mode and enhanced video recording. The camera clicks 16-megapixel images.

While the rear side features 20MP and 16MP dual camera sensors, the front-facing camera features a 16MP sensor with enhanced capabilities. With improved Sony sensors, the device can now record 720p footage at 480fps, 1080p footage at 240fps and 4K footage at impressive 60fps.

Race 3 trailer is out and unsurprisingly it's all about Salman Khan
But because our script is so good, the star cast is brilliant; the franchise is so good, we were confident of taking this step. Salman may be headlining the film but he doesn't believe he is the star of the film - ergo, the focus on family.

The phones will be available from the OnePlus website starting on May 22, though if you're interested in the limited edition Silk White version, you'll have to wait until June 5. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clocked up to 2.8GHz, coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and an Adreno 630 GPU.

On paper, the OnePlus 6 is a force to be reckoned with.

The smartphone will also feature a 6.28-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and support for taller 19:9 aspect ratio.

The upcoming OnePlus 6 is said to come with a 3,450mAh battery, just 150mAh more than the predecessor OnePlus 5T. The notch became a trend after Apple used it in the iPhone X, but Apple wasn't the first company to use this design style. The OnePlus 6 will use a glass-and-metal sandwich design which will be resistant to dust and water. The company is holding an event in London tonight where it will announced the launch.

"We're proud of what we've accomplished, and we hope our users are too". Basically, the OnePlus 6 should compete with any other top Android handset now on the market.

As you can see above, the OnePlus 6 is a sleek and polished smartphone. They also apparently spent finding the right mix of glass to use in the phone, going through over 40 iterations before finding the one that has the flawless mix of usability, strength and looks.

Whether it works remains to be seen, but they're halfway to success given how the OnePlus 6 looks so far.
