First rumors of the OnePlus 6: six-inch screen with reduced frames and arrival in early 2018

OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 5 is a short time with us, but in this world of mobile technology, everything is moving very fast. We already have with us the first rumors of the OnePlus 6 and the truth is that they let us glimpse the strategy that will follow the startup for the coming year.

Contrary to what happened in early 2017, OnePlus would bet on presenting the OnePlus 6 directly in early 2018, probably soon after the Mobile World Congress. This is a change since we must think that we will not see any OnePlus 5T, that is, we skip the continuous version and we will see directly the next evolution of the flagship of OnePlus.

OnePlus 6, making the leap to the latest technologies

This decision, in the end, is based on the availability of the technologies. On the one hand, Qualcomm has not presented the Snapdragon 836, so we already skipped the Snapdragon 845, the processor that will incorporate the high-end 2018. And OnePlus has always been characterized by offering a mobile with maximum power.

The second technology that is already available and many users demand are screened with reduced frames. Following Kote’s words after his analysis after a month :

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Having been aware of new screen formats and more resolution on competing phones, come down a bit. I think it is the section where most have to work on the following OnePlus: it will condition quality and design since it will not be cheap to get a high-level panel.[/perfectpullquote]

OnePlus has always been conservative with screens that stayed in FullHD resolution. In no case of less quality, but already began to move away from what offered by its competition. With the OnePlus 6, we would see the step at six inches, with QuadHD resolution and occupy almost the entire front. A 5.99-inch screen that we are seeing on many models and OnePlus could offer without increasing the price of your product.

This change in size would cause the fingerprint reader to be located at the rear and could also be changed with the inclusion of a microSD slot. We will have to wait for months to see more news of this OnePlus 6 but the first rumors point in a quite reasonable direction.
