OnePlus 6, the company’s upcoming flagship will not make a debut until June, but rumours and leaks surrounding the device have already started to surface online. The most significant change expected on the OnePlus 6 will be its display. It could feature a 19:9 aspect ratio screen with iPhone X-like notch at the top, if reports are to be believed. OnePlus 6 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and this shouldn’t come as a surprise given the latest processor will likely become standard on flagships of 2018.

Other features expected for OnePlus’ new phone are software-driven facial recognition technology, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and 256GB storage space.
