OnePlus 6: Notches Are Not For Everyone!

It's D-day for OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone maker, as it prepares to unveil its latest flagship of 2018- the OnePlus 6.

After months of speculations and teasers, OnePlus is all set to pull the wraps off the company's 2018 Android flagship later today.

The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

OnePlus is scheduled to launch the much-awaited OnePlus 6 at a launch event to be held in London at 9.30 PM IST. In order to watch the live stream of the event the users can head to the official YouTube channel of the company.

The announcement doesn't say anything about Amazon selling the phone in the USA, but the company will reveal more details on Wednesday about its worldwide OnePlus 6 launch plans.

- The OnePlus 6 will be powered by Snapdragon 845, a high-end processor that already powers the Samsung Galaxy S9 phones and will also feature in devices like the Google Pixel 3 this year. In terms of specifications, the smartphone is said to feature a 6-inch bezel-less screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a QHD Plus (2880 x 1440) resolution. The SoC also houses the Adreno 630 GPU which again should provide an nearly 30 per cent jump in performance during graphics-intensive tasks. It will include 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage.

According the listing, the OnePlus 6 for the 64GB variant will be priced at $620 (approximately Rs 40,700) while the 128GB variant will be priced at $680 (approximately Rs 45,700). If that is the case, then wait, and try to buy the OnePlus 6 on May 21 and May 22 when it will go on sale in limited quantities on the Amazon India website as well as in 8 Indian cities.

First let's discuss the launches - I say launches as they are launching it in three locations - their three biggest markets: Europe, China and India. Regular buyers will be able to buy the smartphone from May 22.
