As it did last year, many would have expected OnePlus to launch a slightly updated version of its OnePlus 5 flagship in the coming months. It launched the OnePlus 3T last year several months after the OnePlus 3 was released. If the latest reports are believed, that might not happen this time around. OnePlus is expected to jump straight to the OnePlus 6, bypassing the OnePlus 5T entirely.
Keep in mind that this hasn’t been confirmed officially at this point in time. These are only speculations and only OnePlus knows what its release roadmap for next year looks like.
Rumor has it that OnePlus is going to release the OnePlus 6 early next year. The company’s new “flagship killer” is reportedly going to feature a bezel-less design. That has been the trend this year for flagship devices so it won’t be surprising if OnePlus jumps on the bandwagon as well.
If the OnePlus 6 ends up being bezel-less, it would likely have a repositioned fingerprint sensor as well. There’s a good chance that the fingerprint sensor might end up at the back of the device.
The specs are expected to include a 6 inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It may even have a dual camera system.
As previously mentioned, none of this has been officially confirmed so take this information with a grain of salt. Nothing is set in stone for now.
