OnePlus 6 to be announced on May 5?

By now, there's no doubt that OnePlus is preparing to show the world its next flagship smartphone. The only question that remains is when this device is going official.

If a freshly leaked alleged teaser originating from Chinа is to be believed, the OnePlus 6 might see the light of day in less than a month's time, on May 5. The event will reportedly take place in Shenzen, China, at 2 PM local time. The image seems to be originating from a Chinese online retailer that is known for teasing upcoming devices by tucking them beneath a red cloth and is not an official OnePlus teaser. 

This falls in line with the company's penchant for a spring release of their main flagship, followed by an autumn release of an improved "T" variation of the same device. 

We reached out to OnePlus to provide an official statement regarding the teaser, but the company replied that it doesn't comment on rumors or speculation. Of course, this doesn't downplay the rumor. it just means we will have to wait for 

We seem to know a whole lot about the OnePlus 6, which will adopt a display notch and will feature powerful internals, cheif of which is the Snapdragon 845 chipset. You can check out everything we know about the device so far in our dedicated rumor review right below.

Dont care about the notch.Just introduce the IMX363 sensor in your phone.Xiaomi,Huawei,Nokia have already introduced it in their phones.

I think there was some leak which showed that the phone is going to use the same sensors as the OP5, i.e. 16MP + 20MP. Be prepared for Carl Pei saying that F1.7 without OIS is enough for low light, then to change it later with the 6T just for improved low light( like the 5 and 5T) At this point, I'm tired of the s**t they pull on the camera just to keep costs down. They just want marketing features like more megapixels and dual camera, while they pay no attention to the real features that increase quality(big pixels, OIS etc).

as you said they have to keep costs low somehow where else do you want to compromise?

I don't know. Maybe they can max out at 6GB RAM. I can't think of anyone who will take bad camera + 8GB RAM over good camera + 4/6GB. They are anyway within $200 of flagships like the s9 now. So skimping on camera is no longer an option, since they already skimp on waterproofing, wireless charging, screen and design anyway.

I can't link to it, because I don't have enough posts, but I think this poster was confirmed to be fake. If you search Smartisan Nut 3, you can see the promo uses the same red cover as the one in this image.

Still plenty happy with my 5T :) And if they start to go the notch route, it will have been my first and last Oneplus device.
