OnePlus 6 will come with a whoopping 8GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 845 processor and 256GB of storage. The same reveal also hints at 4K video recording, which could confirm the rest of the leaked specs – a dual-camera setup on the back with 20 MP + 12 MP sensors. What remains unconfirmed is the wireless charging and Dash Charge support, plus the fingerprint scanner on the back.
Lau also bragged about how fast the OnePlus 6 will be, pointing out the extensive investment into hardware and testing.
“Fast is about ensuring there is less than a 1/1000 percent likelihood of your phone freezing, even under constant heavy use. To us, it’s about setting a higher standard,” he said.
Another great piece of news comes yet again from the OnePlus CEO, who took to the official forums to clarify some aspects about the OnePlus 6 screen. For those wanting to hide the notch, the company will offer an option, but not right at launch:
“Recently many users have raised interest in having a black-out function. We respect your feedback, and would like to give everyone the ability to choose. This function will enable you to black out the background of the notifications and status bar. It will be added in a future software update released after the launch of the OnePlus 6.”
What do you think, could this be something that stops you from picking up a OnePlus 6? Here is the phone, leaked by Evan Blass:
