OnePlus provides some details on 6's key specs

Then there were several rumours speculating the design and specification of the upcoming smartphone. Just weeks before the official unveiling, the company has revealed OnePlus 6 specs. In the video description the company "6et ready", playing with the format of the number that looks like the letter G. Thus, the phrase would be "Get Ready" in Portuguese translation. The punch line of the video is - The Speed You Need.

OnePlus will also increase the price of the phone and OnePlus 6 is expected to cross the mark of Rs. 40000 in India. During development OnePlus wanted to use the notch and stick with it, but after hearing a bunch of feedback they've made a decision to implement an option that will allow you to turn the notch on and off via software settings.

The official easer doesn't have a mention of pricing and availability.

Also according to that leak, the OnePlus 6's battery will be a decently large 3,450 mAh, and the screen will be 6.28 inches and will have a 1080p resolution.

As expected with every OnePlus flagship, performance has always been a top priority. Considering OnePlus's previous devices, the OnePlus 6 will have Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection on both the sides.

What to expect in OnePlus 6? It sounds like there could be two different models with varying amounts of RAM and price points, much like the OnePlus 5T.

Judging by Lau's description, the blackout feature will work similarly to the notch toggle Huawei implemented for the P20 series.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has taken to the company's forums to offer fans some reassurance about the upcoming OnePlus 6 and its controversial notched display.

Lau said that the company has already tested the so-called compatibility mode with the 1000 most popular apps in the Play Store and it seemed to have worked "wonderfully". There will be three storage variants- 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Unlike the OnePlus 5T, the upcoming OnePlus 6 will be offering 19:9 aspect ratio. The back panel of the phone would be featuring a vertically stacked dual camera setup and a fingerprint reader. Certainly, many iPhone X owners who were initially wary about the smartphone's screen shape discovered that they acclimatized to it in relatively short order.
