The OnePlus 6 has been launched in India, a day after it was launched for the rest of the world. And like we predicted yesterday, the OnePlus 6 India price is slightly lower than the global pricing.
That being said, the company continues the price year after year, which is not a good sign. But this year’s phone does have an improved design. There is a glass back on the OnePlus 6, but no wireless charging.
There are dual cameras on the OnePlus 6, with a Sony IMX 519 sensor with a 16 megapixels lens,1.22µm pixel size, and an f/1.7 aperture, and a secondary camera which has a 20 megapixels Sony IMX376 sensor with 1.0µm pixel size and an f/1.7 aperure and Dual LED Flash. While the camera supports OIS already, OnePlus says support for EIS will be added for the cameras soon,
The selfie lens on the device, is the same as the OnePlus 5T’s, i.e., the 16MP Sony IMX 371 sensor, which also supports EIS, has a 1.0µm pixel size and an f/2.0 aperture.
The highlight of the OnePlus 6 is the huge 6.2-inch FullHD+ AMOLED display which has a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels at a 19:9 aspect ratio with a notch on the top of the screen. The display and the back are protected by 2,5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS 5.1, and is one of the few devices which already support Android P Beta.
The back panel houses a fingerprint scanner, but you can also use the Face Unlock option to unlock your phone. The device packs a 3,300 mAh battery which supports Dash Charging through the USB Type-C connector.
The OnePlus 6 is powered by the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and will be available in 3 variants: 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage/ 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage / 8GB RAM with 256GB of storage.
