How accurate these rumours are remains to be seen, and we'll find out the full details when the device is officially unveiled on Wednesday. Now, the company hopes to achieve the same foot with its latest offering.
With the addition of Qualcomm's X20 LTE modem, which in the case of the OnePlus 6 supports both 4X4 MIMO and 256QAM, and the phone's new glass body, OnePlus is promising Gigabit download speeds, a first for a OnePlus device.
The company also managed to throw another surprise when it launched a second product, the OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones. However, the company has not detailed an IP rating.
Likely the first thing you'll notice about the OnePlus 6 is its display and how little the bezels are. No, it won't be, but OnePlus clearly wants to stay on-trend and reckons you'll like these puppies anyway.
OnePlus has officially taken the wraps off of its latest device, the OnePlus 6, at a major event at the Copper Box Arena in London's Olympic Park. The company touts it made Android more precise and better suited to handle the display cutout, while it also moved the clock to the left of the notch and notifications to the right. They'll also switch off regardless, if they detect there's been more than five minutes of inactivity.
The OnePlus 6, the latest device from the Chinese manufacturer famed for its high-quality, low-price smartphones, is nearly upon us. Other specs include a Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 graphics, with up to 8GBs of RAM and storage options upwards of 256GB. There are other aspects such as NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G VoLTE and more. Behind the phone carries a Glass design with Camera and Fingerprint module mounted vertically. In my time with the phone so far, I've found the clarity on OnePlus 6's display to be superb. It also comes with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and lens that has an aperture of F1.7. And it can shoot 480 fps slow-mo videos at 720p resolution for 3.75s. resulting in a minute of actual footage. The OnePlus 6 primary camera uses IMX 519 image sensor that is around 19 per cent bigger than the sensor in 5T. According to OnePlus, they've increased the size by 19 percent to 1.22 microns which allows for more light in lowly lit situations.
Meanwhile, the selfie shooter weighs in at 16MP with an f/2.0 aperture.
Like the iPhone X, the new OnePlus can be unlocked just by glancing at the front-facing camera. In India, the OnePlus 6 will launch on May 17 and pricing and availability will be announced on the same day. The OxygenOS will offer a near stock Android-like experience. No, no microSD slot in this generation either (not that anyone expected different).
On paper, the OnePlus 6 is a force to be reckoned with. The device, however, will not support memory expansion.
The OnePlus 6 will be available in three colors-Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Silk White-and in various configurations that range from 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for $529 to a high-end model with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for $629. The Silk White variant will feel like ceramic as it has a Matte effect.

Trivia Tuesday: NBA Lottery picks from non-power schools
The team will have an 8.4 percent chance of receiving the seventh pick and a 0.4 percent chance of receiving the eighth pick. Crazier stuff has happened, though, and adding another blue-chip prospect to either one of these teams seems nearly unfair.
