New image of OnePlus 6 leaked, shows attractive wooden design

Good news for those disappointed to learn that OnePlus has stopped selling its OnePlus 5T in the United States: the successor to the excellent handset, the OnePlus 6, could be here sooner than expected, based on a newly leaked image of the device.

The phone has the largest display size that we have ever seen on a OnePlus device. OnePlus CEO Carl Pei has said that fans must "learn to love the notch". In fact, exact measurements for the notch were given, sitting at 19.616mm x 7.687mm. So pushing Notch to be as small as in Essential Phone was not feasible.

Pei claimed that OnePlus got its team to manually test the top 1,000 apps on the Google Play Store just to determine which of those apps would need a compatibility mode with their version of the notch. It plans to disguise the cutout when video is playing in such a way that it recreates the overall screen curvature.

Also, while it is the Essential phone that is credited to have started with the notch design theme before anyone else, the thing really hit limelight with the Apple iPhone X. However, you will be able to choose between on-screen gestures and on-screen navigation buttons. These are actually already available in the OxygenOS beta for anyone who wants to try them out.

In the video Pei talks about the reimagining currency and then the video shows a coin with the print of OnePlus logo. Apple made a decision to curb that with a flexible OLED, which, even though is a great solution, it is also an expensive one.

Whether you're feeling the top notch or hating on the top notch, Carl Pei has some parting words for you. Carl mentioned that Apple could have a chin-less display because they could bend the OLED display's logic board under the screen, without worrying about a swollen price figure.

Perhaps enthusiasts just don't realise the benefits just yet, as OnePlus observed the discontent within the crowd at the Mobile World Congress as notched device after notched device was unveiled. An Engadget report states that OnePlus confirms to have sold all the targetted number of 5T units in the market and are out of stock, which indicates that the OnePlus 6 isn't that far from a global debut.

Like every other phone maker going that route as of late, the company will be fitting a much narrower notch as the phone won't have any dedicated sensors for facial recognition.
