OnePlus 6 rumours suggest it will come in two colours – black and white

Monday, May 14th 2018 by Oprah Flash

The latest flagship phone is about to burst into the mobile arena with the launch of the OnePlus 6, later this week (16 May).

Just like with the release of the Huawei P20 range, Android enthusiasts have lit up the internet with rumours, leaks and hype in the run up to the launch of the OnePlus 6.

It’s a fair assessment to say that there is a lot of excitement for the new phone. A preluding marketing event for the OnePlus 6 sold out within nine hours of tickets going on sale.

We’ve heard/read that it’s going to be available in two colours, have an iPhone X-style notch and now the latest rumour is that rear casing will be made of glass.

Droidlife spotted a picture posted on Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter page, showing the actor holding the black version of the phone with OnePlus CEO Pete Lau holding the contrasting colour. The picture has since been deleted so we can’t guarantee that these are OnePlus’ chosen colours for the new phone but it’s a pretty safe bet.

A picture of the black and white versions of the OnePlus 6 appeared on Twitter

Confirmed: Latest Android P software

Pictures submitted in Slashleaks give us a pretty accurate idea of what the phone will look like. The images show a 6.3-inch screen, a notch, rear fingerprint scanner and a matte black finish.

Whisperings on the web suggest it will have a whopping 256GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. The glass exterior suggests the OnePlus 6 may follow in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X with enabled wireless charging. There is also talk of a dual 16MP camera.

OnePlus has confirmed its latest edition will be one of the first handsets to run on the Android P operating system. The manufacturer is building up quite a reputation for having some of the industry’s fastest software updates – the OnePlus 5 and 5T were some of the first to receive the Android Oreo update.

With the updated operating system we’re expecting the phone to have a faster, smoother and cleaner user experience that its predecessors.

Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, said: "Beyond building the best possible Android phone, we work to provide more value to users by ensuring the smartphone experience is not dominated bloatware and intrusive notifications.”

We’ve only got two days to wait till OnePlus puts all the rumours to bed at its launch event in London on Wednesday 16 May.
