Carl Pei, OnePlus CEO, confirmed the new OnePlus 6 will come with a notch two weeks ago. Later Pete Lau, co-fonder of the company, said you will be able to mask it out if that’s what you prefer. Now we get a better look at the front thanks to a rendered image of the front panel appeared during the weekend.
The notch houses a selfie camera, LED notification light and the earpiece, while the bottom and side bezels appear quite thin. The image of the OnePlus 6 features the DxOMark logo, suggesting a review of the smartphone is already in the works.
The positioning of the buttons is not a surprise – we have a power key on the right, volume rocker on the left, along with the alert slider that became something of a traditional feature for OnePlus devices.
The fingerprint scanner should be on the back, but OnePlus started implementing Face Unlock and the feature will most likely be available in the 6 as well.
OnePlus already confirmed Snapdragon 845 and 8 GB RAM for the new phone, while other sources claimed 16 MP + 20 MP dual camera setup and 3,450 mAh battery capacity.
