- OnePlus unveils the teaser of OnePlus 6
- The handset flaunts its water resistance capability
- Camera samples shot in daylight shared on Weibo
When an ex-employee of Oppo electronics, Pete Lau (the present CEO of OnePlus) started a smartphone company in 2013, then no one knew that the company will make it so far. Currently, this Shenzhen based company has proven its worth in the Indian market and has a premium market share of 48%. As of now, its most famous handset is OnePlus 5T, but the company is all set to roll out its 2018 flagship device – OnePlus 6. Perhaps that is why the renders and teasers of OnePlus are getting released every now and then.
On Monday itself the Chinese smartphone manufacturing company took to Twitter to create a curiosity among the users with the post – “Don’t you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains? So do we ;).”
OnePlus 6 – water resistant feature
Although the company has not unraveled the name of the device explicitly, one may speculate the handset to be OnePlus 6, as Pete Lau has separately revealed to the users the first official camera samples of the device through the Chinese social networking website Weibo. Definitely, OnePlus is trying to flaunt the water resistance potential of its upcoming Android device – OnePlus 6 with this tweet. Depending on this twitter post one may also expect that OnePlus 6 will be carrying an IP67 rating, thereby following the current trend of Android OEM-branded flagships.
OnePlus 6 – camera quality
Coming back to the camera samples of OnePlus 6, users are not advised to keep their hopes high, as the snaps are taken in daylight and one of the major challenge faced by OnePlus smartphones is that these handsets do not perform well in low-light. Further, nothing more could be gauged from the shots of flower beds and buildings taken at the Stanford campus in California by OnePlus 6. However, one might expect the launch date of the device to synchronize with the release date of Infinity War, as the company is in a tie-up with Marvel’s Avengers.
OnePlus 6 – Other Specifications
Earlier, it was rumored that OnePlus 6 will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and will carry the memory configuration of 8GB RAM with 256GB onboard storage. Apart from this, the buzz in the market was that the handset will be accompanied by a vertical dual rear camera setup. However, OnePlus has confirmed only certain features of OnePlus 6 – a 3.5mm headphone jack, a display notch that can be concealed, an Alert Slider embedded with additional functionality. Furthermore, according to promo video shown in some cinema halls in New Delhi, OnePlus 6 could be Amazon India exclusive.
