Advanced gesture support could be coming to the OnePlus 6
The use of the caption “Speed up your experience with gestures” is perhaps the most direct indication that the feature is coming to the OnePlus 6, although the video itself does also point towards the use of various swipe actions. OnePlus is, however, yet to detail which exact gestures will be supported. If previous Open Beta updates are anything to go by, though, owners of the upcoming OnePlus 6 should expect at least three different gestures, similar to those seen on the iPhone X. These will allow users to go back to home, check out the app overview, or simply swipe a certain way to go back. Nevertheless, it’ll remain to be seen if any other gestures will be supported or if OnePlus will allow users to customize swipe gestures or even create their own. In terms of what the OnePlus 6 will bring, consumers can expect a large, bezel-less display complete with a notch up top, although this will be hideable via software trickery due to customer feedback.
Also, on the inside, CEO Pete Lau recently confirmed the inclusion of the Snapdragon 845. Furthermore, a variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage has been announced and, in the camera department, a dual setup is expected to adorn the rear of the device. Regarding a release date, however, nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet, but rumors point towards a late April launch.
