OnePlus 6 to launch on May 17 in China, confirms company

Those who want to be among the first ones to see the new OnePlus 6 can attend the launch events in London and Mumbai.

This year, the event which is named "The Speed You Need" will have 1000 available places for anyone that wants to attend. In addition to this, the phone will also have a glass back which the company announced in a forum post a couple of days ago. We now have the official launch date of the most anticipated OnePlus 6.

Coming to the specs, the OnePlus 6 is nearly confirmed to feature a notch up front on its 6-inch AMOLED display. The phone will go on sale on Amazon India, where Amazon Prime members will get Prime Early Access and will be the first to purchase the phone starting 12:00 IST on May 21, 2018. OnePlus 6 is expected to be backed by a 3450mAh non-removable battery and run on Oxygen OS be based on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.

If the recent camera samples shared by CEO Pete Lau are to be believed, OnePlus 6 is going to improve in the camera department as well. Unfortunately, Lau didn't even mention wireless charging and just focused on talking about the overall look of the OnePlus 6 and how the company believes in having an "honest design". However, like it did with the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, the 6 will also, eventually, make its way to offline stores as OnePlus is now trying to capture a market that strays away from shopping online.

However, don't expect to walk out with a OnePlus 6, as the company will not sell any at the event.

Plenty of information about the OnePlus 6 has already trickled out, with much of it coming from OnePlus itself. The most expensive variant with 256GB storage and 8GB RAM will be priced north of Rs 45,000. The back will have a 16MP+20MP dual camera and also a fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus is also reportedly teaming up with Disney to launch a special "Avengers: Infinity War" edition of OnePlus 6, ahead of the film "Avengers: Infinity War" which arrives in theatres on April 27.
