Live images of the upcoming OnePlus 6 have surfaced, shining some more light on what we should expect from OnePlus's upcoming flagship killer. There's a notch present but the bezels are slim and there's also a headphone jack, so it's not all bad.

The OnePlus 6 is set to be launched on May 21. The device will succeed the immensely popular OnePlus 5T—a device so popular, in fact, that its stock sold out within a few months—and attempt to outdo it. For the first time, live images of the device has surfaced, throwing more light on what we should expect from it.

According to the images, the OnePlus 6 will feature a notch. That has been confirmed by company CEO Carl Pei for a while now, so it's not news. While we're not massive fans of the notch, the one implemented on the OnePlus 6 doesn't look terrible. It's admittedly not as nice as the Essential PH-1's, though. 

Also worthy of accolades is the chin on the device. A major gripe with the recent notch trend is the fact that most devices with notches still feature massive chins, making it all a bit pointless. The OnePlus 6, however, has an almost non-existent chin, with incredibly slim side bezels that remind us of the Mi Mix 2.

At the bottom of the device, a headphone jack can be spotted...which is nice. Those are becoming rare. There are speakers at the bottom, although not a stereo setup. The back of the device features horizontally-placed central dual camera setup, with a fingerprint reader just below it.

The OnePlus 6 will feature a Snapdragon 845, up to 8 GB, and possibly up to 256 GB of storage. It's expected to come with a base price tag in the region of US$550.
