The highly-awaited OnePlus 6 has been launched by the Chinese company OnePlus. Latest of the segment, OnePlus 6 features a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display, a notorious notch and carries the price tag of $529 for the starting variant.
The phone can be availed in three colors namely Mirror Black, Midnight Black and the limited edition Silk White. Under the hood, you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 along with two options of RAM (6GB and 8GB).

According to Carl Pei, One Plus’s co-founder, OnePlus 6 is the fastest flagship device ever launched by the company. Thus the tagline “The Speed You Need.”
The device will come with OnePlus’s own Oxygen OS 5.1 which has been tweaked to refine the user experience. For the safety of the phone, Gorilla Glass 5 has been provided on both the sides.
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. Optical image stabilization has also been added for clearer photos. One major change in the camera department is the 19% increase in the size of the primary sensor in the vertically placed dual camera setup.
Users can record 4k Video up to 60 fps which is an unprecedented feature. A default video editor has also been provided for editing videos.
OnePlus have explicitly described no official IP rating in the event, but the device carries the label of ‘improved water resistance.’
