OnePlus 6 to feature Pixel 2 and iPhone X-rivaling camera
The teaser in question challenges Twitter users to match four pictures to the respective devices, the options being Google’s Pixel 2, Samsung’s Galaxy S9, Apple’s iPhone X and, of course, OnePlus’s own OnePlus 6. These are obviously not just random selections, they are regarded by many as some of the best smartphone cameras around, suggesting the OnePlus 6 will give them a run for their money. Historically, OnePlus’ cameras haven’t been regarded as the best on the market, so this year it appears OnePlus is looking to change this. After all, recent rumors claimed the smartphone’s higher price tag would be justified by a significantly improved camera.
The upcoming smartphone is currently expected to include a main 20-megapixel sensor that will boast a f/1.7 aperture. In addition, taking on both Apple and Samsung, this is said to be coupled with a secondary 16-megapixel camera. It’s currently unclear what kind of sensor it will be, but most rumors point towards a telephoto lens.
Aside from an improved camera, the OnePlus 6 will ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside along with the choice of either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Furthermore, the former RAM variant is said to be available with both 64GB and 128GB of storage, while the latter option will be coupled with a considerable 256GB of internal storage. Also, Android 8.1 Oreo will ship straight out of the box, although the Android P beta will also be available to users. On a final release and price note, the device is currently expected to go on sale by the end of May, with pricing starting at around $555.
