OnePlus 6 heart rate sensor hinted at in new teaser
OnePlus has teased the inclusion of a heart rate sensor in the OnePlus 6. OnePlus has continued to tease a number of device features in the leadup to the announcement and now, with just over a week to go before the official unveiling, the company’s latest social media post hints at a possible heart rate sensor.

As can be seen in the image, a cardiogram is clearly the main focus of the teaser along with a number “6” that is placed towards the center, suggesting the upcoming flagship could feature a heart rate monitor. Furthermore, the image was accompanied by a caption which makes reference to the heart but it, unfortunately, fails to specifically confirm the inclusion of the sensor. It’s also worth noting that the teaser has so far only been published on the brand’s official Weibo page, with its accounts on other social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook yet to make any mention of it and previous rumors have also made no mention of the feature.

Aside from the possibility of a heart rate sensor, the OnePlus 6 is set to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside. This will be coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and storage options are set to include 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models. In regards to the outside of the smartphone, OnePlus has confirmed a new glass build, akin to the Galaxy S9 lineup, with the front panel being dominated by a tall display complete with a notch.

Price-wise, the OnePlus 6 has been rumored to begin at around $555 for the 64GB variant, while the 128GB option may reach the $600 mark. In the case of the top-of-the-line model, however, no information has appeared as of yet, although the limited-edition Avengers Infinity War variant could cost as much as $800. On a final release note, with the unveiling set for May 16, sales should commence shortly after, with shipments beginning towards the end of May or the beginning of June.

it's really unfortunate that it will have a notch and wrong placement for the fingerprint reader. I wanted to shut up and give them my money... but...

Yeah, your heart rate translated to decimal from binary code will confirm and pin point your exact location to the Chinese government...and will be on the verge to assassinate you even though you have done nothing to them. But because you know they're spying on you.

Always adding some useless stuff to increase the price of their phones, pretty soon OnePlus phones will cost as much as Samsung flagships. Just improve the battery life, camera performance and give me at least 4years updates and let me have the phone. The screen, storage, RAM and speed are already enough for most usage, the rest can be improved through software updates, STICK TO THE ESSENTIALS. What are Heart Rate monitor, Face Unlock, IP68 rating and all the other gimmicks? Since when have this things become so important to anyone, and how often do anyone use them before they even forever that they existed.

Water and dustproofing are not gimmicks.
