OnePlus made the OnePlus 6 official this morning, with availability starting May 22 for the starting price of $529.
For specifications, OnePlus’ latest flagship features a 6.28-inch display (19:9) complete with top notch, Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB RAM (there are three configurations in total), up to 256GB storage, dual rear-facing cameras (16MP + 20MP) with OIS and Portrait Mode, 3300mAh battery, Fast Charging, USB-C, rear-facing fingerprint reader, water resistance, and OxygenOS 5.1 based on Android 8.1.
OnePlus 6 comes equipped with OxygenOS’s gesture based navigation controls, which were introduced earlier this year. If you’re ready to ditch on-screen buttons, now you can. For the hardware, OnePlus went with a glass back design, Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 to be exact. According to OnePlus, the OnePlus 6 should be just as resilient as its past devices that didn’t have glass backs. OnePlus is also equipping the OnePlus 6 with Face Unlock, capable of unlocking your device in as little as 0.4 seconds.
During its press event, OnePlus stressed device updates, highlighting access to the latest Android P beta from Google. Should you be getting a OnePlus 6, you can gain access to the Android P beta right here.
OnePlus 6 starts at $529 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model. The 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option costs $579, while the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage model will coat you $629.
Both Midnight Black and Mirror Black colors will be available starting May 22, but OnePlus’ new Silk White option won’t launch until June 5.
