The new leak comes from weibo.com, a chinese microblogging site – which also shows in the picture the DxOMark logo. Carl Pei the OnePlus CEO, confirmed the new OnePlus 6 will come with a notch two weeks ago.
The new phone is expected to come before the Q2 20018 ends. The recent picture points to Saturday, May 5 but it’s it’s very unusual for anything to be announced on a weekend. The new flagship OnePlus 6 may come in three color variants – White, Black and Blue, as reported here.
There has been a huge debate around the notch. Later, in a forum post, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau also provided an extensive justification around the implementation of the notch on the upcoming flagship handset. The company reassured its fans that the smartphone will come with an option to hide the notch as well.
OnePlus already confirmed that the new phone comes with a Snapdragon 845 and 8 GB RAM, while other sources wrongly claimed that it will get 16 MP + 20 MP dual camera setup and 3,450 mAh battery capacity. One of the OnePlus 6 variants will come with 256GB of inbuilt storage.

The 64GB variant of the OnePlus 6 will reportedly be priced at CNY 3,299 (~ 523,09 USD), the 128GB variant is said to be launched at CNY 3,799 (~602,37 USD), while the top-end 256GB model might set you back by about CNY 4,399 which is around 697,29 USD.
The OnePlus 6 Infinity War Edition (UK only) will feature 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
The phone looks interesting but I’m not rally a notch fan but thankfully we get an ability to hide it. OnePlus is really underrated in my opinion. At this point there’s not much about the OnePlus 6 which hasn’t at least been rumored. However, I’m really looking forward to see some real tests on this baby to see how well it performs.
