OnePlus 6 will be launched in London today. So, there are no surprises in this article. From sandstone finish to the metallic body and now a glass body, OnePlus has adopted the latest and the best. The multi-layered Gorilla Glass 5 surface on the back is dark, reflective and combines well with the polished black metal edges along the sides and the ends.

But if your eyes are set to the future (and toward a bigger screen and faster chipset), the OnePlus 6 seems like the best choice right now. I've already had my hands on the OnePlus 6 for a while now, and I'll share my initial impressions in this post. The company has never been shy about how much inspiration it draws from Apple, so the added tagline feels like the natural evolution of OnePlus' design language.

Face unlock returns after its debut on the OnePlus 5T, unlocking the phone in just 0.4 seconds.

The 6 still has the OnePlus mute slider, which has always been great, as well as a regular headphone jack.

OnePlus has also confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be its first flagship since the OnePlus X to feature a glass back. So love it or hate it, but the notch is here to stay. It is said to flaunt 6.2-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch, which is said to house a front camera with facial recognition feature.

People can't tell if this audio clip says 'Yanny' or 'Laurel'
Another user tried to enlighten the masses: "If you pick up on the higher pitch it's Yanny and the lower pitch is Laurel ". It's the internet's biggest debate since The Dress . people are split over what word this clip is saying.

The OnePlus 6 price in India is being rumoured to be Rs. 36,999 for the 6GB RAM variant, while the price of the 8GB RAM variant could be Rs. 39,999. In classic OnePlus fashion, the phone won't have a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Now promising up to one day of use with 30 mins charging even though battery size remains 3300mAh. At the front there is a 16MP sensor (Sony IMX371) with unique portrait mode features.

Following the 2016 release of its well-received Bullets V2 wired earphones, OnePlus has returned to the audio market with a set of affordable Bluetooth earphones - the Bullets Wireless. There's a 20MP secondary camera for depth information. Slo-mo videos can be shot at 480 fps @ 720p for up to a minute. However, it doesn't rise to the level of an IP-rating, so you shouldn't get either phone wet. This omission of inductive charging is a bit of a head-scratcher since OnePlus switched to a glass design with the OP6. Finally, the OnePlus6 will ship with Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS, OnePlus's clean and bloatware free front-end. This might not sound like a drastic difference, but when you factor in the phone's increased thickness and weight you're looking at a smartphone that isn't as pocketable as last year's model. That means the opportunity to try notification muting, smarter volume controls and all new gestures months ahead of their official launch.

At first sight this is a typical OnePlus smartphone. OnePlus says a future update will allow you to answer calls by uncoupling the earbuds.

So the pricing starts from $529 and goes up to $629. Regular buyers will be able to buy the smartphone from May 22. While the Limited Silk White starts June 5th. They had to think of something original with the matte black version.
