Yes, the OnePlus 6 Will Be a Flagship Killer

Posted on April 3, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 26 Comments

Not too long ago, OnePlus confirmed its next flagship will come with a notch. That wasn’t too much of a surprise,  considering the fact that almost every new flagship in 2018 now includes a notch.

And today, OnePlus is confirming the main specs of the OnePlus 6. In a forum post, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau wrote about how the company is working to offer a “truly burdenless experience” with the OnePlus 6. Lau confirmed the main specs of the device, stating that it will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. In other words, it will be a flagship killer.

“Fast is not just about shorter loading times or top download speeds, any OEM can achieve high numbers in one or two metrics. Fast is about creating a lasting impression of speed and smoothness, throughout all-day use, whether you’re recording 4K video or browsing Facebook. Fast is about ensuring there is less than a 1/1000 percent likelihood of your phone freezing, even under constant heavy use. To us, it’s about setting a higher standard,” Lau penned.

With such high-end hardware and a notch, it’s obvious the OnePlus 6 will likely OnePlus’ most expensive device ever. Even though earlier rumours suggested that the OnePlus 6 will be “significantly cheaper” than Apple’s iPhone X, the device will likely still cost a lot more than OnePlus’ previous flagships, which were relatively cheaper than other flagships in the past. Like other phone makers, however, OnePlus tends to increase the price of its flagship with almost every new product, and the OnePlus 6 shouldn’t be any different.
