OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already confirmed that his company’s next handset will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, and that’s where that speed will come from. He also said the launch would happen in June, but we’re starting to seriously doubt that given how many leaks we’ve recently seen regarding the OnePlus 6 – and today’s teaser.

Additionally, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has admitted that the OnePlus 6 will have a screen with a notch, angering cutout haters everywhere. The notch will measure exactly 19.62 x 7.69 mm. That makes it larger than the Essential Phone’s but smaller than the iPhone X’s. The OnePlus 6 is likely to have at least one version with a woodgrain finish on the back, which is a pretty unique look.
