OnePlus 6 Will Have Galaxy S9-Like Heart Rate Sensor
The OnePlus 6 is turning out to be a sizeable upgrade over the OnePlus 5. The smartphone is scheduled for a global launch in London on the 16th of May, followed by its India launch on May 17th. OnePlus has been teasing a few features of the device on its social media platforms and the latest image posted on the company’s Weibo account yet again reveals a new feature of the OnePlus 6.
According to a new image, the OnePlus 6 could have a heart rate sensor. As is visible in the image, the number ‘6’ is made of a cardiogram which hints at the presence of a heart rate sensor. Samsung devices like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9 already have a heart rate sensor on the back next to the camera module. In the leaked images so far, we have not seen a cutout or heart rate sensor but, this image was posted on the company’s official account.
According to the listing on TENNA, the OnePlus 6 will have a 6.28 inch Super AMOLED display with a 2280 x 1080 px resolution. This translates into a 19:9 aspect ratio and the phone will shift to a conventional 18:9 aspect ratio if a user decides to hide the notch.
Under the hood, the device will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The listing is of the base model with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. The other two variants will be 8GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB non-user expandable storage. This will be the first time that ttheOnePlus smartphone will have 256GB of onboard storage.
