The rumors of new OnePlus 6 have surrounded the mobile markets and tech gurus are speculating about its specifications, price and release date. There is a valid reason for this level of interest, as this model is the successor of the successful OnePlus 5T.
To put it short, this model promises all that a customer demands, i.e. big display, fast speed, long battery life, high-quality display configuration and great camera experience.
The mobile is expected to release at a time when competition in the mobile market is at peak and all companies are trying their best to provide a good quality mobile phone at affordable price. The situation is not very much in OnePlus’ favour, but they can turn the tables as this brand has been providing high-quality phones at low cost.
OnePlus 6 will replace OnePlus 5T, which is not available this day is the USA. OnePlus 5T was among top mobile phones on account its large display (as in other mobile brands) and great camera resolution. But, the new model OnePlus 6 is expected to outclass its predecessors and other contemporary cell phones due to its better performance.
The most rumored changes are a larger screen with a notch at the top similar to tech giant Apple’s iPhone X.
- It is important to mention that various features match Oppo R15 as both giants are linked.
We have got a great of information from trusted sources about the new phone. You can read everything about the new OnePlus 6.
OnePlus 6 Expected Release Date
OnePlus 6 launch date: April or May
OnePlus 6 Release date: May or June
The expected release date is based on the fact that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 5T were released in June of their respective years. So, it can be expected that new flagship device OnePlus 6 can be available by June 2018. But, rumors suggest that the new mobile can be released around April or May.
A source talking to GizoChina claimed that the new model is expected to hit markets in April. On the other hand, it was earlier speculated that tech geeks can enjoy new OnePlus 6 in March, but to no effect.
April can be declared a date for the release as OnePlus 5T is not available in US and company needs a new device, OnePlus 6, to compete in that market. However, the situation is not same in other regions such as the UK and Europe.
OnePlus 6 Expected Price
- As per leaks: Between $ 625 and $ 725
- As this model is better than OnePlus 5T, so likely to be more expensive than the latter.
How can we better answer price of the cell phone, we don’t know much about, but many things clearly indicate that it is going to be more expensive than previous models. It is also expected that this OnePlus 6 will be most expensive phone ever manufactured by tech giant OnePlus.
The latest rumours indicate towards a price tag between $ 605 (about £430, AU$790) to $749 (around £530, AU$970), and could go as high as £700 in reality when prices for the UK are announced.
A little increase in price will not matter as per rumoured specifications (According to OnePlus there will be a 256 GB variant of the handset). But, if price elevates much higher then affordability can be an issue for OnePlus fans.
