Everything We Know About The OnePlus 6 So Far
OnePlus 6 is shaping up to be another killer flagship. That’s not far removed from their preferred billing—”flagship killer”—that, though they have yet to actually achieve, they have been making strong efforts for. The new flagship, for which leaks have already been dropping left and right, looks to be another phone worthy of either billing.
A few chief features include water resistance, a possible on-screen fingerprint display, and lest we forget, the now-notorious iPhone X notch. Here’s a quick render of what the phone’s (very slim) forehead will look like, via The Verge.
Recently, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has taken to Weibo, a Chinese social platform, to upload some photo samples taken with OnePlus 6’s supposedly improved camera system. The photos look crisp and sharp but aren’t telling to its low-light performance, as all samples are noticeably daylight. Check out the photos.
Find after the bump some key details about the OnePlus 6, including leaked specs, pricing, release date, and where to buy.

OnePlus 6 Philippines: Pricing
Being a OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 6’s pricing is a crucial point of discussion. There’s fear regarding the surge in pricing, with some thinking that the OnePlus 6 will bump upwards the $500 mark. I personally think, however, that it will retain its lower, sub-$500 pricing if it wants to undercut higher-priced flagship devices.
OnePlus 6 Philippines: Release Date and Where to Buy
Pundits have slated the release for OnePlus 6 in either April or May. The confirmation of the company working with Marvel to produce an Avengers-themed edition of the smartphone all but confirms this theory. “Avengers: Infinity War” is slated for an April 25 release in the Philippines. It doesn’t make sense to release the OnePlus 6 any farther from the movie’s release date; it’s safe to assume that the OnePlus 6 will be available either late April or early May.
Regarding where interested buyers can get the OnePlus 6, there’d only been one authorized reseller of OnePlus phones in the Philippines, and that’s Digital Walker. We’ve reached out to Digital Walker for information regarding the phone’s local release, but has yet to get back at us.
