OnePlus 6 has been revealed in a new teaser image by the company. OnePlus has already confirmed most of the key features of the OnePlus 6 and the latest image gives a clear look at the design of the new flagship phone. With OnePlus 6, there’s very little that remains unknown thanks to leaks, and the company’s own teasers and detailed blogposts about the phone’s features.
Based on the OnePlus 6 teaser image, it will have a circular fingerprint scanner just above the OnePlus logo. The other interesting change is that the alert slider on the OnePlus 6 could be positioned away from the volume button. Last year the alert slider was on the other side above the volume buttons. OnePlus has already confirmed the alert slider as well as gestures for navigation will remain a part of the OnePlus 6. There is speculation that OnePlus 6 will have improved navigation gestures, similar to Apple iPhone X.
OnePlus 6 will sports an edge-to-edge panel on the front with a notch, which will house the camera, front LED, and an earpiece. Recently a leak on Weibo showcased the front panel of the OnePlus 6 smartphone, and gave us a glimpse of what the notch will look like on the smartphone. OnePlus claims users will get more real estate space with a notch on the front, and that the design element will be compatible with most apps on the Play Store.
The new OnePlus 6 is expected to run OxygenOS with Android Oreo 8.1 on top. It should be noted that while Android P will bring native support for the notch, Android Oreo does not include this. However, OnePlus has promised users it will let them block out the notch in landscape mode, and it will not interfere with their gaming experience as well.
