The OnePlus 6 tech specs have been officially confirmed by the company’s co-founder Pete Lau. The news comes a day after the device was listed on the Wi-Fi certification website, and leaked some of the device’s specs.
Here’s the OnePlus 6 teaser which the company posted on Twitter:

According to the official teaser/announcement post on the company’s forums, the OnePlus 6 will provide burdenless speed and user experience. Confused what that means? Apparently, the phone will not have any unwanted features, a simple design, and the performance will have no logs.
So, the notch (which was confirmed by Carl Pei) is not unnecessary and a simple design?
By burdenless speed, the company is promising performance stability even when recording 4K videos, playing games, and other heavy usage. This is possible, thanks to the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, which the OnePlus 6 will be powered by. The phone will have a high end variant, with 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage.
All this talk clearly suggests that the OnePlus 6 is ready for debut, but there is no official word on the release date yet.
Hilariously (and quite truthfully), the first comment on the announcement thread on the OnePlus forums, sarcastically pointed out that the only speed which people care about is OS updates. This was followed by more comments about the battery ad camera, all of which are true to the core. Though I would like to point out that OnePlus did update its last 4 phones to Android 8.0 Oreo before the likes of major players including Samsung, LG, etc.
And it is not exactly new for OnePlus to go crazy to create insane hype, before the launch of a new device. But they have delivered in the past, especially considering the OnePlus 5 and 5T were excellent devices. So, here’s to hoping the OnePlus 6 is even better, and that the company doesn’t price it higher than the 5T.
