OnePlus is still teasing its next flagship device, OnePlus 6 on their social media pages. This time, the company has confirmed the glass back panel of the upcoming smartphone. The smartphone will have five printed layers of the nanotech coating which is a first for a smartphone.
The company’s CEO Pete Lau said “OnePlus 6’s glass design is centered around creating a ‘sense of value’ and ‘premium hand-feel’. We have a lot of thought to how users should feel when they use the OnePlus 6.
The advantages of glass over metal are manifold: glass communicates a transparent, bright, and pure feeling. The way glass transforms under different lighting is a particularly important challenge—the OnePlus design team tested over 70 glass prototypes before selecting the best one.”
A recent tweet from the company has confirmed some more features like a teaser on Twitter hints that the smartphone might get IP67 or IP68 certification. Pete Lau also posted some of the camera samples from the smartphone officially but the metadata has been removed from the images so we didn’t get any details about the smartphone from those pictures.
Another leak has revealed that the OnePlus 6 is going to launch on May 17th which is listed on the official website with the time listed as 10 AM. The smartphone is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 8GB of RAM. There might be a notch on the display which was confirmed by some leaked pictures of the smartphone.
