Official: OnePlus 6 will feature glass back design

Based on the rumours we've heard so far, plus a few official comments from OnePlus itself, it sounds like the OnePlus 6 should be better in every way than its predecessor.

It's no secret that OnePlus is winding up the hype machine in preparation for launching its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6. The company, in a post on Weibo, announced that the OnePlus 6 will be unveiled on May 17 at an event in Beijing, China. The event will also be open to the public but they will have to shell out a fee of CNY 99 (Rs 1000 approx) to attend the launch event. Early Bird tickets go on sale on April 25 at £16 for 60 hours only. However, the additional layers give the back of the device a stronger impression of depth that our most demanding users will surely appreciate. However, going by previous OnePlus launch teasing on social media platforms, the device will go official in the first week of May. Just like its predecessors, OnePlus 6 will be sold online exclusively through Amazon in India.

OnePlus 6 may come with an iPhone X-like notch. The OnePlus 6 will also retain the company's signature "horizon line" and curved back design. Keeping the momentum, OnePlus shed light on the design of OnePlus 6 smartphone and confirmed that it will embrace a glass back.

According to Pete, the design team had tested over 70 prototypes before settling down with the ideal one. However, in a separate report, a gsmarena reader has claimed that OnePlus has already sent emails to some OnePlus phone owners stating that the upcoming OnePlus 6 will be launched on May 21. The crucial first detail includes the notch design that has recently been embraced by most of the Chinese manufacturers including Vivo, Huawei, and Oppo. The smartphone is confirmed as one of the most powerful smartphones yet and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and paired (up to) 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. You should also expect some features like Face Unlock, new and updated Dash charging, dual rear cameras, water resistance and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. In addition, all fans who attend the launch event will get a gift hamper full of super add-ons and exclusive Marvel Avengers merchandise. Chances are that this will only be available in India like last year's Star Wars phone.
