OnePlus is yet to officially announce the OnePlus 6 but the company has been gradually teasing the specifications and features of its new flagship smartphone. OnePlus has a habit of teasing potential new features gradually so as to maximize the news exposure for its upcoming device. A new teaser that the company put out in China suggests that the OnePlus 6 might come with a heart rate sensor.
The teaser certainly doesn’t make it obvious that the OnePlus 6 will have a heart rate sensor but it does show an electrocardiogram with a “6” in the middle. It’s as good a hint as any to suggest that the OnePlus 6 could be capable of sensing users’ heart rates.
It won’t exactly be a groundbreaking feature given that heart rate sensors have long been used in smartphones, smartwatches, and wearable fitness trackers. OnePlus fans certainly wouldn’t mind having this feature on the new flagship, though, as it would bring up the handset’s profile in comparison to rivals on the market.
The company is going to officially unveil the OnePlus 6 in China on May 16th. What we know so far about the handset is that it’s going to tout a 6.28 inch notched display with 1080p resolution. OnePlus itself confirmed that the handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It will also feature up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage as well as a dual camera system at the back.
