OnePlus’ next flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6, will be launching in Q2 2018. There is little information that we know about the device at this time. For starters, we’ve learned that it will feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip. It’ll very likely launch with Android Oreo on board (meaning it supports Project Treble). Finally, there is evidence that the OnePlus flagship will adopt a 19:9 notched display according to a leaked benchmark and the latest OnePlus 5T firmware.
Based on the leaks, the device will be coming with a display notch and dual rear cameras. It will be offering 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Just like Oneplus 5 devices, the upcoming OnePlus 6 might come in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. Now, the new rumors suggest the OnePlus 6 to include Snapdragon X16 Gigabit LTE modem.
The Snapdragon X16 modem will be offering download speeds up to 1 Gbps and upload speeds up to 150 Mbps. The recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones also came with Gigabit LTE modems. In comparison, the Oneplus 5 and OnePlus 5T smartphones only support up to 600 Mbps download speeds.
What exactly will this mean for potential owners of the new device? It means that in countries which offer better 4G availability and average speeds, your device will be better suited to utilize the peak download/upload speeds.
