The OnePlus 6 256GB variant price in India has not been revealed yet. Even they are providing the Marvel's Avengers Limited Edition models for the fans only in the Indian market. That's very different from the OnePlus 5T that made of all metal, specifically anodized aluminum.

OnePlus talked a lot about the camera, promising fast capturing along with slow motion (as a post processing tool) at 480fps/720P that can be shot for a full minute.

Software-wise, the OnePlus 6 comes powered by Android 8.1 Oreo, topped with the latest version of OnePlus' impressively-unobtrusive OxygenOS.

The camera is a point of pride for the OnePlus 6, utilising a 20MP +16MP dual lens placed vertically on the rear for "perfect symmetry".

The display is bright, vivid and well-balanced in its default colour profile, though still running at the same 1080p resolution as the OnePlus 5T, which looks a little lacklustre by direct comparison to the sharper Pixel 2 XL or Galaxy S9.

While there was a mention of the water resistance of the OnePlus 6 there was no mention of any rating.

Tucked neatly below this rear snapper is a fingerprint scanner, although you might not need it considering the OnePlus 6 now includes facial recognition. No, it won't be, but OnePlus clearly wants to stay on-trend and reckons you'll like these puppies anyway.

The OnePlus 5T has the same RAM and internal storage configuration options, but is outfitted with last year's Snapdragon 835 chipset. The from and back are entirely Gorilla Glass 5.

OnePlus 6 camera samples surfaces on the wild

The back of the phone is where most of the aesthetic differences are visible.

The OnePlus 6 will make a departure from the current trend of an aluminium build in favour of a glass body, but it would retain horizontal lines and curved design of the current generation flagship. But the design choice that has made the most headlines is the company's decision to include a notch on the OnePlus 6. This time, it also has portrait mode for the front camera. The initial flagship of oneplus 6 is going to be exposed globally in 2018 at a famous occasion organized in London. It will go on sale starting May 21, 2018 for Amazon Prime members, through Amazon.in website as a part of the Early Access Sale programme. OnePlus believe they have done exactly that creating their fastest ever flagship.

The OnePlus 6 will be launched in London on May 16 at 5PM UK time.

OnePlus has always placed a great level of focus on the performance its phones provide, and that appears to again be the case with the OnePlus 6.

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. It also adds some much needed grip to the phone, which can be a tad slippery thanks to all that glass. In India, the OnePlus 6 will launch on May 17 and pricing and availability will be announced on the same day.

The all-new OnePlus 6 release date is officially set for May 22nd.

Battery is always a worry with Bluetooth earphones, but OnePlus has been working on that too, building its celebrated Dash Charge into the earphones.
