OnePlus 6 heart rate sensor hinted at in new teaser
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.
