The OnePlus 6 has leaked in full with the first clear renders of the device, front and back. While some are undoubtedly going to be unhappy about its iPhone X-style notch, it is otherwise a beautiful design.

The OnePlus 6 has leaked in official press renders ahead of its launch in London this week. The device is notable for following the current trend of Android smartphones with iPhone X-style notches, but is also arguably the most fully realized designs from OnePlus. The Mirror Black finish shown in the renders is a stunning, seamless blend of Gorilla Glass 5 and metal unibody.

The OnePlus 6 is fitted with a 6.28-inch AMOLED display, as with its stablemate (and similarly notched), Oppo R15. It will be fitted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 paired with 6GB of RAM and come in either 64GB or 128GB variants on launch. It is thought an 8GB plus 256GB storage high-end model is also in the works to take on the new Galaxy S9 variants from Samsung, and devices like the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS. The rear of the device has a centrally located, vertically aligned, dual-rear camera arrangement fitted with 20MP and 16MP sensors.

The Amazon Germany listing for the device (which has since been pulled), had the OnePlus 6 priced at the equivalent of US$620 for the 64GB model and US$680 for the 128GB variant. The device is also expected to ship with a custom variant of Android Oreo 8.1.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
