OnePlus 6 Hands-On Image Leak Showing New Design

The OnePlus 5 was launched in June, followed by the higher variant OnePlus 5T in November last year. The former came with a dual camera setup on the rear, while the latter offered an FHD+18:9 display. The next in line is OnePlus 6, which may be called OnePlus 7 because the Chinese smartphone manufacturer likes to skip even numbers. The first hands-on-image of smartphones today appeared on the Chinese technology blog ITHome.

The OnePlus 6 design resembles a combination of Apple iPhone X and the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9+. The smartphone contains a notch that houses an earpiece and a front camera. The display mentions Android 8.1 Oreo version and OxygenOS version 5.1, both being ahead of what the OnePlus 5T is running. The 6 GB RAM and the 64 GB internal storage is a prevalent combination that has been present since the OnePlus 3. So, there is nothing new here.

The smartphone’s rear contains a vertically stacked (5T horizontally stacked at the top left corner) dual cameras and a rectangular fingerprint sensor below it, similar to the Galaxy S9+. If you remember correctly, when the company moved the fingerprint sensor from front to back in the OnePlus 5T, it changed the shape from rectangular to circular. Now, it seems the rectangular shape is back and bears more similarity to the Galaxy S9+.

We cannot say if the image is genuine or fake without proof or official word. The OnePlus 6 is supposed to launch in June, so it’s a bit early to get hands-on. However, there were rumors last year that OnePlus would launch the 6 versions much sooner. But OnePlus 5T sales are going too well, and the company will not launch the next version without finishing its stocks. This brings us to the next question: Is OnePlus planning another smartphone series? The display information looks credible, but given the history, the company will not likely launch another series.
