The company is also offering tech lovers the chance to buy the phone a day before its official launch, with a series of pop-up events across the US, Europe, India and China on Monday, TechRadar reports. The other two variants of the OnePlus 6 feature 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage costing $529 (roughly Rs 36,000) and 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage that is priced at $579 (roughly Rs 39,000). It offers three memory configurations - 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 64GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage, 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage.
You also get a special retail box and a special case that has Iron Man's mask printed on it. Along with that the phone has a golden Avengers logo at the bottom of the device, and a black frame around the sides. At the risk of sounding blasphemous, I say OnePlus with the launch of 6, is rewriting history by creating a whole new category that will carve a niche for itself.
It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset which has an octa-core processor clocked at 2.8GHz.
The stunning 6.3-in Full Optic AMOLED 19:9 display covers nearly the entire front of the phone.
Other features include 6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB/256GB storage, Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.1, a 3,300mAh battery with new Dash Charge capability and support Bluetooth v5.0 connectivity. The Dual-SIM support allows you to use the phone wherever you are in the world with more than 37 supported bands.
On the rear, the OnePlus 6 sports a 16MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, EIS and a 20MP secondary camera with f/1.7 aperture. The sensor size has also been enlarged by 19% which should improve low light performance by quite a bit resulting in 1.22 micron sub pixels. OnePlus 6 can recording 4K video recording at 60 frames per second while the OnePlus 5T is limited to 30 frames per second on the same resolution.
The camera of the phone has not much changed since OnePlus 5T; the latest model is equipped with a 20 MP + 16 MP dual camera having f/1.7 aperture rate. Last time during the OP 5 launch in Mumbai, OnePlus fans could experience the phone and place an order then and there. There's also a 256GB model but it will only be available for the midnight black version. The mirror black finish is shiny and reflected, has been polished to match the metal edges. It also has copper coloured buttons inspired by Thanos's Infinity Gaunlet. The device will come with a carbon black textured back panel complemented by OnePlus and Avengers logos in gold. The fingerprint sensor is slightly tweaked from a circular ring to an oval design and claims to unlock the phone in 0.2 seconds, while the "face unlock" feature claims to do that in 0.4 seconds.
