We are already finishing April but there are still manufacturers with pending releases in this first half of the year. One of them is Xiaomi, whose Mi 7 is still in the shadows waiting for the moment to be revealed. Another is OnePlus, whose OnePlus 6 has been waiting for months, although the manufacturer has already put an official date on its arrival to the market.
The next high-end phone from the catalog of the Chinese manufacturer, OnePlus 6, will land on a stage next May 16. The event will be held in the city of London at 17:00 hours BST (local), and will have two more events the next day. May 17 in Mumbai and Beijing.
But the important thing is that there is more data about the event and that OnePlus has been in charge of offering advance information on the phone.
The speed you need
So OnePlus has entitled the event to present their future OnePlus 6, an event that will have its mirror in the community of users of its website, for which there will be tickets to attend the event.
A total of 1,000 tickets, which can be purchased at a price of 18 euros from this April 25 and that will allow those who do with them to see the conference live and have the OnePlus 6 before anyone else. For those who can not travel to London, there will be streaming to see the presentation via the web.
In terms of specifications, OnePlus has been sliding small information pills for months now. Confirming in advance data that we will see on May 16 on the London stage. For example, that the phone will have the Snapdragon 845 as a brain, and that there will be a 256GB version of internal storage for the first time in the history of the company.
There was little doubt about the processor, as is expected for most of the high ranges of this 2018, but its CEO was responsible for confirming it for himself.
Screen with the notch, glass back and Snapdragon 845 in front of everything. OnePlus has already advanced features of its OnePlus 6.
Another fact about this future OnePlus 6 is that it will have ‘notch’. The great trend in panels of this 2018, which was consolidated as an authentic invasion of the Android world at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, will be present in the OnePlus 6.
The explanation given by the CEO of OnePlus did not differ much at the time of the offered by other manufacturers: offer more screen ratio on the front of the device. Of course, it seems that we can hide it by software, something that other manufacturers have already done this year.
More official data? There are, related to the design of the phone and that may affect their specifications or not. Like the OnePlus 6 will be water resistant, or like it will have the glass back. Pete Lau showed a design of the OnePlus 6 with the glass back and also argued: “the advantages of glass over metal are multiple: the glass communicates a transparent, bright and pure sensation”.
What we have not yet known is whether the glass back will lead to the arrival of wireless charging or not. That data is still in the air, although we will leave doubts next May 16 in London. Everything else is speculation, we will be in the official presentation to tell you all about the future OnePlus 6.
