OnePlus 6 is supposed to launch soon, and there has been some speculation regarding the camera setup and overall design of the phone. OnePlus had shared an image of the OnePlus 6 on top of the OnePlus 5T device yesterday, which indicated a new position for the alert slider. Now, leaked design cases images have revealed that the OnePlus 6 will come with a vertical rear camera, and not the horizontal placement as previously thought.
Mobile Fun, a UK based website, has shared images of some upcoming design cases, which give a clear indication of how the OnePlus 6 will look like, when it launches. The design case images also showcase the front panel of the OnePlus 6 and the notch, which will house the front camera, LED flash. OnePlus has already confirmed this particular aspect of the smartphone, and said the notch will be a part of the display.
Based on the leaked case images, OnePlus 6 will go for a vertical camera, compared to the horizontal one on the previous phone. The rear camera module will be placed bang in the centre on the back of the phone, below which will be a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner also looks different compared to the one on the older OnePlus 5, 5T. Still, while OnePlus 6 might be copying the notch trend from the iPhone X, the camera design remains different.
The case images indicate a flat, matte design from the back, and no textured back as such. Earlier leaks have indicated the OnePlus 6 will look very different from the back thanks to a textured design. However, given these are leaked images, they cannot be taken as confirmation of the OnePlus 6 design. OnePlus 6 has however, confirmed some specifications of its upcoming flagship.
