Officially confirmed: OnePlus 6 specs won't disappoint
Shortly after unleashing the very first OnePlus 6 teaser, OnePlus today shared more details on its upcoming flagship smartphone. While mentioning that it's always in "pursuit of burdenless speed" and smooth user experiences, OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus 6 is, unsurprisingly, powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 - the high-end processor that's also found inside Samsung’s Galaxy S9 series. 

OnePlus also says that its next-generation phone will come with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space. There's no mention of variants with less RAM and less storage space, but this doesn't necessarily mean they don't exist. In any case, we're expecting the OnePlus 6 to be a bit more expensive than its predecessor (OnePlus 5T), with prices possibly starting at over $500.

The OnePlus 6 will definitely feature a notch à la iPhone X. Its display could be a 6-inch one, but this remains to be confirmed. Also unconfirmed, though highly likely, is the fact that the new OnePlus handset will come with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack

OnePlus could announce and release its new flagship phone as early as this month. Are you looking forward to finding out more about it?

But what's the point of the 8gb of RAM. I mean more is always good I guess but what are you doing on your phone that requires 8gigs?

by your logic all car manufacturers should produce cars that should have 1.5l 12 valve engines since you only need to go upto 80mph whats the use of all these ferraris lamborghinis and what not. As consumers its always better to get more for what you pay how can you in your sane mind complain about something like that

Dude relax. I just asked what it could be used for and stated that more is always better.

It is used for the bandwidth.

More apps and browser tabs can be keept in it. Honestly it is ridiculous seeing browsers start reloading or redrawing pages after 5 or so tabs on 4Gb devices. Even without pagefile browsers on desktop can keep 30+ pages in RAM without need to offload them to pagefile.

Multitasking and gaming, in smartphones you come and go for one app to another, you are playing and you receive a message, the ram it's needed in order to keep the game open and running where you return to it after checking the notification

There are several background services which run all the time & are required to run always for smooth operation. Services may belong to Google services, location services, fingerprint, face unlock, sensors,AI etc. As more & more apps are installed and smartphones are used for several functionalities, these services would increase and would require more RAM. More RAM also prevents reloading of apps/services, thus preventing the processor to work more. This saves battery.

Yea.. What's the use of 90+ Billion Dollars. I mean more is always good I guess but what are you doing with your life that requires 90+ Billion Dollars. (Like you said. I guess more is better for most of the times. Even if it may not be always.)

Camera Requires a lot of memory. Oneplus said that they use majority of the "available" memory for that.

Well it aint working then as OnePlus isn't exactly renowned for their cameras.

Increased price with notch and same s**tty camera as the R15. OnePlus can go f**k themselves, oh wait.... they already have.


Posts: 2817; Member since: Oct 03, 2012

The notch is a huge no go!

Most phones released in the past 3 years support band 12.

I hope they keep the FHD screen! QHD just ruins performance

You can't tell the difference in clarity between a Samsung and a Oneplus

Not sure if it really matters, but you can tell the phone (at least Samsungs) to render the display at lower resolution, and then the GPU just does the multiplication to stretch the pixels of the 1920x1080 image its given to fit the 4k display. Seems to improve performance slightly and you get the nice benefit of having more subpixels I guess, since each "pixel" is really a subset of the 4k pixels.

Wonder if it will work on CDMA.....Would like to get one but all I have is Verizon coverage around me.

Why do I have a feeling the price will disappoint :(

I'll definitely be buying this if the price is right and it comes with 256 GB of space. Fingers crossed for a good price.

The only thing putting me off is the notch.. Would be good if OnePlus could add a black bar to the top of the screen like what LG are proposing.

I can't say the notch bothers me all that much.

Oneplus brand by itself is disappointing. No one wants a oneplus especially now with that ugly notch.
