It was increasingly getting clear that OnePlus is due to launch its next flagship in the next few weeks as the OnePlus 5T went out of stock in North America and OnePlus co-founder, Carl Pei, started asking the users to “learn to love the notch” after confirming that the next flagship will come with an iPhone X-like notch. Pete Lau too wrote a blog post about the reasoning behind opting for the notch. But all the while, the company had kept the name of the next flagship a secret.
But not anymore. The next flagship will be called the OnePlus 6.
This was revealed in the WiFi certification listing where it clearly mentions the name as OnePlus 6 and model number as ONEPLUS A6003. The date of certification is today. i.e April 2, 2018. In addition to the name, the WiFi certification listing mentions that the OnePlus 6 will be running on Android Oreo 8.1.0 out of the box with Oxygen OS 5.1.0 skin on top. It also mentions the support for Miracast Display which has been a constant for the last few OnePlus devices.
There were some rumors about OnePlus opting the OnePlus 7 name while skipping the OnePlus 6 altogether, just like how the Chinese company did with the OnePlus 4. But then, the possibility of that was minimal as it was an open secret that the real reason for skipping OnePlus 4 was because the number Four is considered inauspicious for the Chinese.
The OnePlus 6 is expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6/8GB RAM and 64/128GB of storage. It’s expected to come with a 6.28-inch Full HD+ optic AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. The back of the phone is expected to come with different textures and materials. With these leaks, we can assume that the OnePlus 6 launch isn’t too far off.
