The OnePlus 6 with glass design confirmed, purple variant possibly on the way
Speaking through the company’s official product forums, co-founder and CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus 6 would finally make the move over to a glass construction, with the new design centered around creating what he calls a “premium-hand feel” and a “sense of value.” In fact, the CEO states that OnePlus tested over 70 different prototypes before finalizing the end result. Speaking of which, Pete Lau mentions that the new glass boasts five layers of Nanotech Coating instead of the usual three, which should give the rear panel more depth, and it also features a slight curve that the smartphone brand dubs “horizon line.”
In addition to explaining the design process, a teaser image of the device also accompanies the post, showing off what looks to be a purple-colored variant, which appears to resemble the Lilac color seen on Samsung’s Galaxy S9 lineup. Other design details include an aluminum frame complete with antenna bands near the corners of the device and a USB Type-C connector present on the bottom of the device alongside a bottom-firing speaker.
OnePlus is yet to confirm an official unveil date for the upcoming OnePlus 6, but the latest information points towards a May 18 unveiling. In any case, on the inside, the new phone is expected to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 alongside 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, although other variants will reportedly be available.
