OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took to the official OnePlus forum to talk a bit about the company's upcoming flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6. Titled 'Our Pursuit of Burdenless Speed', the CEO talked about user experience and how OnePlus is striving to give its users a flexible, light, and quick experience. In the process, he also confirmed some key specs of the OnePlus 6, which we've been hearing about for a while.

Lau feels that smartphones should focus more on providing a lag-free and intuitive user experience without the burden of bloatware. He opines that 'fast' is not just a metric to conform to but also about creating a lasting user experience that ensures a less than 1/1000 percent likelihood of the phone freezing, even under continuous heavy use. To that effect, Lau said OnePlus is incorporating the best hardware in the OnePlus 6 and that includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 coupled to 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. Leaked benchmarks of the OnePlus 6's Snapdragon 845 on AnTuTu showed it beating every other smartphone out there.

The CEO also said that OnePlus has a dedicated FSE team (stands for Fast, Stable, Efficient) and their job is to focus on how to maximize the performance of their flagships. He cites the smooth experience OnePlus devices offer while playing PUBG as an example of the FSE team's work.

He did not delve into other aspects of the phone although, we do know that the smartphone will feature a 20 MP front sensor and a 20 MP + 16 MP rear sensor with f/1.7 aperture. There will also be a 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage option. The OnePlus 6 also has Lau's stamp of approval on the inclusion of an iPhone X-esque notch. 

With the increasing costs of flash-based storage, it could be likely that the OnePlus 6 might start to get dearer this time. Converted prices known till date peg the highest-end variant to cost about US$700, a tad high for a company that lives by the affordable flagship motto. The official launch is still a few months away so the pricing and other technical aspects should be more clearer by then.
