OnePlus 6 featuring 6.28 AMOLED, Snapdragon 845, 6 GB RAM launched for Rs 34,999 in India

OnePlus today announced its latest premium flagship device, the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6 – the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design – is the company's most sophisticated handset to date.With a 6.28-inch Full Optic AMOLED 19:9 display – OnePlus' largest-ever screen – the OnePlus 6 offers an immersive viewing experience, while keeping a similar form factor to that of the OnePlus 5T.

Fast and Smooth Experience
Addressing a common pain point among smartphone users, The OnePlus 6 is powered by one of the most powerful processors on the market, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which improves performance by 30%, while being 10% more power efficient. Coupled with the Adreno 630, which is 30% faster than the previous generation, the OnePlus 6 is a powerhouse for everything from streaming HD video to playing graphically intense games.  
With up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the OnePlus 6 effortlessly switches between multiple apps running at the same time without a single second of lag, allowing users to multitask with ease. The OnePlus 6's dual-lane storage, based on UFS 2.1, ensures faster app loading and read/write speeds.  

Bolder Design 
OnePlus 6 is beautiful and functional in equal measure – now, with more screen than ever before. To provide users with as much screen real estate as possible, OnePlus designed the navigation bar so that it can be replaced with gesture control, freeing up even more viewing space for a cleaner look.

OnePlus has experimented and innovated with glass to deliver its boldest design to date. Donning an all-glass design, the OnePlus 6 facilitates better transmission of radio waves, providing users with up to 1 gigabit of download speed. Due to its strength and malleability, OnePlus used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back of the device, shaping it with slight curves to create an uninterrupted look and feel.

OnePlus' meticulous attention to detail is reflected in each of the OnePlus6's color variants: Mirror Black, Midnight Black and a limited-edition Silk White. For the Mirror Black and Midnight Black variants, OnePlus embedded a thin layer of film underneath the glass to create a sense of depth as light and shadow move on the device. A jagged texture was etched onto the film of the Midnight Black to produce a subtle S-shaped line when the phone is reflected in light. The limited-edition Silk White uses pearl powder to create a subtle shimmering effect. 

High-speed Dual Camera with Optical Image Stabilization  
The OnePlus 6's dual camera system features a 16MP main camera, supported by a 20MP secondary camera. With an f/1.7 aperture, the 16MP main camera has been bolstered by a 19 percent larger sensor and OIS for outstanding performance in a range of lighting conditions. With Advanced HDR, OnePlus' improved High Dynamic Range algorithm, the OnePlus 6brings out shadows and enhances lighting in photos. 

Portrait Mode will be available on the OnePlus 6's front camera as well as its rear. Using AI, the front camera is able to apply a depth of field effect to selfies. Newly added bokeh effects, including circles, hearts and stars offer new ways for users to customize their portraits. 
The OnePlus 6 marks the introduction of OnePlus' Slow Motion mode, which can capture high-definition video frame-by-frame with astonishing detail, ensuring users never miss the action. 

Android Refined – OxygenOS based on Oreo
OnePlus' operating system, OxygenOS, offers a refined Android experience that is faster, cleaner and more customizable than other Android experiences. 
Like its approach to hardware, OnePlus' approach to software is centered around an experience that is refined, efficient and minimalistic. New features are vetted by OnePlus users through channels like the OxygenOS Beta Program and only added once OnePlus is confident the features can improve the way users use their phone.  

A Day's Power in Half an Hour 
The OnePlus 6's fast charge – a favorite feature amongst OnePlus users – offers one of the fastest charging solutions on the global market. A half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 6 enough power for the entire day.
