OnePlus announced it’s latest flagship device – The OnePlus 5T – just last month. Yet, the rumour mill is on its toes already for the Chinese manufacturer’s next-gen flagship device. OnePlus 6, which will succeed the OnePlus 5t, is speculated to launch as early as March 2018
A report from GizmoChina says that Oneplus 5t might be the shortest flagship smartphone as per their sources the OnePlus 6 will happen in March 2018, and it will go on sale later the same month.
OnePlus 6 to feature an underglass fingerprint scanner?
The report also says that the OnePlus 6 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, which is an expected thing as the previous generation OnePlus flagships arrived with lastest flagship chip from Qualcomm. There’s no information on how much amount of RAM will the device use, but there will surely be a variant of the OnePlus 6 with 8GB of RAM.
Also, the OnePlus 6 will come with an underglass fingerprint scanner. The OnePlus 5T has the fingerprint scanner placed at the back, thanks to the 18:9 display on the front. However, with the OnePlus 6, the company is looking for the underglass scanner. Vivo is rumoured to launch the first underglass fingerprint sensor smartphone at the CES 2018 event. Given the fact that both OnePlus and Vivo are headed by the same BBK Electronics, the news of OnePlus 6 having an underglass scanner might be a reliable one.
We will suggest you to take the report with a grain of salt as Oneplus has always launched new devices around June and never in March.
Also, the device may not be called as OnePlus 6 because the company openly stated there are not interested in releasing devices with even numbers. In the past, the company had a terrible time with the OnePlus 2, which incidentally is the only OnePlus smartphone did not impress the audience.
