OnePlus 6 specifications OnePlus 6, as expected, comes with high-end specs under the hood. One major aspect which has changed is the overall design, since OnePlus has switched from metal to Gorilla Glass 5 all around. The company dropped the telephoto lens with the OnePlus 5T and replaced it with another RGB sensor. On the back, it has a dual-rear camera setup that consists of a 16-megapixel sensor and 20-megapixel sensor. For selfies, you will find a 16-megapixel camera. Other specifications include dual SIM slot, USB Type-C port with fast charge support, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and NFC. The OnePlus can capture 4K videos at 60 fps and HD quality slow-motion videos at 480 fps. It has the function to unlock the user's face.
What looks like one of the best Iron Man cases ever (fight me) is included with the handset, as is a random Avengers medal - apparently one of six to collect as part of a regional competition.
The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back with vertical aligned cameras above it.
Under the hood, the OnePlus 6 is powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC which is paired with 6 or 8 GB RAM.
Both the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 5T run OxygenOS, the smartphone maker's custom Android ROM, with several customisation (Reading Mode, Gaming Mode) and personalisation (Themes, Accents) options over and above stock Android. The company claims that OnePlus 6 will be among the first smartphones to get Android P update when it releases in stable built later this year.
