Possible OnePlus 6 Launched As The OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition
OnePlus is expected to launch its new flagship, the OnePlus 6 in June. Going by the company’s recent track record, the OnePlus 6T will be launched by the end of the year. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves and for now, concentrate on the OnePlus 6. The smartphone is expected to be one of the best affordable flagship devices of 2018.
The last two OnePlus devices have looked awfully similar to some OPPO smartphones. That is mainly because OnePlus’s parent company is OPPO Electronics. Since OnePlus is a very young company, it is possible that the R&D department is shared between the sister companies. Hence, the OnePlus had the exact design as the OPPO R11 and the OnePlus 5T looked like the OPPO R11S. With this in mind, it is possible that the new OPPO R15 could be the OnePlus 6.
It is worth noting that OnePlus only has the design similar to its OPPO counterparts. All OnePlus devices are launched with flagship specifications and it won’t be any different for the OnePlus 6 either. Also, a recently leaked image of the OnePlus 6 resembles the OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition. The device has a glass back with a very reflective finish albeit, a horizontally placed dual-camera setup. The leaked image of the OnePlus 6 revealed a vertically placed dual-camera setup, which looks similar to the Galaxy S9+.
Another big change expected in the OnePlus 6 is wireless charging. The OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition doesn’t support wireless charging despite having a glass build.
OnePlus 6 Specs
The device will have a 6.2 inch 2160 x 1080 px Optic AMOLED display with a higher screen to body ratio. The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB, similar to the OnePlus 5 and 5T.
There will be a tiny notch up front, which will house the front-facing camera and the earpiece with an LED flash unit. In fact, the smartphone is expected to have a Face ID like feature, which uses the front-facing camera. Hence, we could see some extra sensors in that notch to enable a much more secure facial recognition system. That will also sort of justify the notch, just like on the iPhone X.
The device will have a dual primary camera setup, similar to the OnePlus 5T, were, the secondary sensor will be used for low light photography.
