OnePlus Releases Its New Flagship Smartphone

The new OnePlus 6 smartphone began shipping this week and most of the rumoured specs we reported on early last month have turned out to be true. (OnePlus 6 Uses the Same Processor as the Samsung Galaxy S9)

The device indeed has a 6.28″ (to be exact) AMOLED display with a notch to house its front sensors, a 2280 x 1080 resolution with 402 pixels per inch, a 19:9 aspect ratio and an ~83.8% screen-to-body ratio. It’s also powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor as previously stated, and runs Android 8.1.

One thing that wasn’t totally clear was what options would be available to buyers in terms of ROM and RAM. Now, we know that the smartphone is available in three models — 256GB or 128GB of storage, both with 8GB RAM, or a cheaper version with 64GB storage and 6GB RAM. However, the device’s storage is not expandable.

Camera-wise, the device has a dual 16+20-megapixel rear camera set-up, with features including optical image stabilisation, autofocus, face detection, LED flash and HDR, plus a 16-megapixel front camera.

Prices start at $529 for the lowest RAM/ROM spec and range up to $629 for the highest.
