OnePlus might hold a tiny fraction of the smartphone market, even in its home turf of China, but it's punching above its weight when it comes to word of mouth marketing, and has established somewhat of a cult following with its first handsets offered at near cost.
While that's no longer the case, fans of the brand are still expecting the upcoming OnePlus 6
to be the cheapest phone with Snapdragon 845 when it lands, so there is a healthy interest in its overall specs and looks combo. We doubt it will go much below the $550 that Xiaomi
is already asking for the Mi Mix 2s
, which has the same chipset, yet eschews the lazy notch design, but OnePlus may surprise us.
Those looks, rumored notch and all, just got tangentially confirmed for the umpteenth time with a leak of the alleged OnePlus 6
turned on, and smiling for the camera. While the date on the phone itself isn't set, the one on the computer behind it shows April 23, so it's a rather recent photo. At the front, the handset looks like its sister phone, the Oppo R15
, which is already out and about, with minimum side bezels, and somewhat of a chin that is hidden by the enclosure the alleged OnePlus 6 is in.
Just as rumored
, a proud notch cutout is at the center of the top bezel. The phone is coming in two short weeks from now, so there's not much left to wait and see how much will OnePlus be asking for it.
