OnePlus has been in the rumour mill for its 2018 flagship OnePlus 6 for a while now, and a new leak has highlighted more information about the same.
The company's latest unveiling OnePlus 5T is only a few months old and we have already started witnessing leaks and rumours about the next handset, the OnePlus 6. Last week, rumours revealed leaked images of the OPPO R15, which is said to usually turn into a OnePlus handset, showcased that the phone would be arriving with a notch design similar to the Apple iPhone X. A fresh report now has revealed more details about the upcoming flagship.
The OnePlus 6 has been spotted on benchmarking website AnTuTu with an impressive score. According to purported screenshots shared by Android Central, the handset has recorded an average score of 276510 points. The scores also show the OP6 defeating Xiaomi's upcoming Mi MIX 2S, which is set to debut on March 27 this year.
According to the leaked information, the OnePlus 6 will be powered by a Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. It is also believed that the device will hold up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The report further suggests that the smartphone will be boasting an elongated display with a new 19:9 aspect ratio. Notably, the notification bar is quite a bit taller than usual which suggests that the given space will likely house a notch. The notch will separate out the app notifications on the left, while the right will feature the other icons such as the clock, network and alike. As of now, Google has also released the developer version of Android P, which confirms support for a notch. This could be in-line with support for the future update of Android P on Oxygen OS.
Previous leaks also indicated that the OnePlus 6 could come with a rear glass panel that will also allow wireless charging.
As for the camera, the dual rear vertical lens system might not be positioned on the top-left corner of the phone like iPhone X but instead would be positioned above the centred rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The OnePlus 6 is also expected to run Android 8.1 Oreo with the latest OxygenOS.
