Today, a photo of the OnePlus 6 was posted on Twitter in two color options with the companys founder and CEO, Pete Lau. Indian actor, Amitabh Bachchan posted the photo of himself holding a black one and Lau is holding a white model, which looks great, by the way.

The tweet is still up and were not sure if it was intentional or if Bachchan didnt realize he was leaking the phone. But now that we have this image, lets take a closer look at those two handsets in the photo.
The black model is clearly made of glass on the back as we can tell by the reflections in it. However, the white one remains a mystery: will OnePlus offer a Sandstone white model like the OnePlus 5T? Were not sure. We secretly hope that OnePlus doesnt go all in with the glass sandwich design and offers a Sandstone White model with a more durable material on the back.
Colors aside, this is the same model that weve been seeing in leaks – the dual camera and fingerprint scanner placement are spot-on. It also looks like the rear cover will taper over the edges like the Galaxy S9 and many other smartphones with glass on the back.
The hype is real with the OnePlus 6 right now, even though the event isnt for more than another week. On a related note, the above tweet also contains a link for where those of you in India can grab invitations to attend the OnePlus 6 launch event on May 17.
