The OnePlus 6 has been listed on the Wi-Fi certification website, ahead of its launch. And the listing reveals some of key specifications like the W-Fi connectivity and Operating system version, of the phone.
This is not the first OnePlus 6 design leak and it certainly won’t be the last one either. It was only a few days ago, that we reported about the OnePlus 6 notch design, which was confirmed by the company’s co-founder, Carl Pei. Now coming back to the news at hand, the listing on the Wi-Fi website mentions that the certification was done yesterday, i.e., April 2nd, 2018, and the certification ID was WFA74031.
The model name of the device, is clearly mentioned as OnePlus 6, and that it belongs to PnePlus Technology (Shezen) Co. Ltd, so there is absolutely no chance that this is for some other phone. We can also see the model number of the phone, which is ONEPLUS A6003. The device was running on Oxygen OS 5.1.0, which is based on Android 8.1.0 Oreo. The OnePlus 6 will support Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac connectivity over the popular 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. Additionally, it also supports Wi-Fi Direct, WPA and WPA2 Enterprise and Personal.
The Hardware version EC101, could possibly be one of the variants of the OnePlus 6, assuming there will be 64GB, 128GB variants, with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, like the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T had.
The Wi-Fi certification listing essentially means that the device has met the industry standards such as interoperability, security, a range etc. And since this is now official, we don’t think the launch of the OnePlus 6 could be very far off.
Which in turn means that the earlier rumour about a June launch for the OnePlus 6, could be wrong. An early launch does make sense however, because OnePlus could sell a lot more units, by releasing the device earlier than usual.
