With a speculated release later this year, One Plus 6 has embraced the rumour arena with the latest revelations about the next flagship smartphone ready to steal the thunder of the Samsung Galaxy S9’s, and Apple iPhones.
The successor of the highly rated One Plus 5T has recently spotted on the famous benchmarking website AnTuTu which skyrocketed the scoreline. According to the screenshots revealed by Android Central, the One Plus 6 has passed Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi MIX 2S challenge with flying colours. Reportedly, the much anticipated One Plus 6 registered a score of 276510 points.
With an aspect screen ratio of 19:9 taller than its predecessor which has an impressive 18:9 panel, the One Plus 6 will be powered by 8GB RAM along with a decent storage capacity of 256GB.
Coming back to rumoured One Plus Snapdragon 845, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau already made it sure that the successor of One Plus 5 series will be launched with new processor. The One Plus6 is also likely to run on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo and can come up with wireless charging.
With the latest set of leaks, the One Plus 6 is likely to take notes from Apple as the Chinese brand’s flagship smartphone is predicted to come with an ‘iPhone X like notch’. Going as per the leaks shared by the benchmarking website AnTuTu, the One Plus 6 not only achieved a remarkable 276510 scoreline but also is likely to have Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845.
The OnePlus 6 is also likely to pack one of the latest and greatest chipsets – perhaps the Snapdragon 845. And we’d guess RAM will top out at 8GB, just like the OnePlus 5T, as lowering it might look like a downgrade but we struggle to see how any more than 8GB would be beneficial.
But it currently looks unlikely that the OnePlus 6 will support wireless charging. The company has confirmed that the OnePlus 5T doesn’t due to the tech not being a match for wired Dash Charge, and we doubt it will have advanced enough for OnePlus to reverse its decision for the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus 6 release date and price
The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 were both released in June of their respective years, so in or around June 2018 is our best guess for the OnePlus 6.
That said, it’s not a month that OnePlus always sticks to, but for its main numbered releases (aka everything except the OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus X) it does always launch them around the middle of the year.
There is evidence that the OnePlus 6 could launch earlier though, as a source speaking to GizmoChina claims it will be announced in mid-March and hit stores by the end of March.
