OnePlus takes on Apple and Samsung with new low-cost flagship phone


In the United Kingdom, the prices have been set at GBP 469 (roughly Rs. 42,900), GBP 519 (roughly Rs. 47,500), and GBP 569 (roughly Rs. 52,000) respectively, while in the European Union, prices have been set at Euro 519 (roughly Rs. 41,600), Euro 569 (roughly Rs. 45,500), and Euro 619 (roughly Rs. 49,500).

The OnePlus 6 will be made available in Midnight Black (8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB configurations), Mirror Black (6GB/64GB, 8GB/128GB) and Silk White (8GB/128GB).

Google has announced that the beta version - intended mainly for use by developers and super-fans - is now available, and the company is also opening the beta up to third-party devices as opposed to restricting access only to Nexus and Pixel phones. The two black-hued models will be available to buy from 22 May, while the "limited edition" white model will go on sale in June.

Apple and Samsung's dominance in the premium smartphone market has come under increased pressure in recent years from the likes of OnePlus and fellow Chinese manufacturer Huawei, both of which have regularly release devices with similar specifications to the market leaders, but at reduced prices. For the unknown, the OnePlus India launch is scheduled for May 17 and we already know that it is going to be an Amazon exclusive in India.




Charged via USB-C, OnePlus claims you can get up to 5 hours of music playback from only 10 minutes of charging, which is incredibly impressive if accurate.

At 6.28in, the Full Optic AMOLED screen on the OnePlus is its biggest yet. There is a bezel-less design as seen on the OnePlus 5T. Under its hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clocked at 2.8GHz. The rear of the device will sport a dual 16MP (f/1.7) and 20MP camera with OIS and advanced HDR functionality. Both have f/1.7 apertures. Additionally, the dual camera array is now positioned vertically in the center of the case above the led flash, while the fingerprint sensor is pill-shaped rather than circular. This time, it also has portrait mode for the front camera. The company is adding a variety of bokeh effects to portrait mode, allowing users to add hearts and stars to their portrait photos. The front-facing camera also has a 16-megapixel sensor, as well as EIS. And it can shoot 480 fps slow-mo videos at 720p resolution for 3.75s. resulting in a minute of actual footage. There is also a new in-device video editor. The 256GB variant of the OnePlus 6 is available only in the Midnight Black color. "This is the fastest flagship experience OnePlus has ever created", OnePlus said.

Dimensions of this device are 155.7 x 75.4 x 7.8 mm and it weighs 177 grams. OnePlus has thankfully kept the headphone jack and its trademark alert slider (which now simply toggles between ring, vibrate and silent) also returns on the 6, but you'll find it on the right side now above the power button, with the volume rocker on its lonesome along on the left edge. It's also waterproof, although we don't have an exact IP rating just yet.

OnePlus' biggest launch event to date, the event will be hosted at London's Copper Box Arena, with up to 1,000 OnePlus fans in attendance.
