OnePlus finally unveiled the OnePlus 6 at an event in London yesterday. The OnePlus 6 has been launched in India and the device is Amazon.in exclusive. The prices for the OnePlus 6 in India starts from Rs 34,999 and the device will be available starting from May 21.
OnePlus 6 comes equipped with a bigger 6.28-inch display as opposed to the 6-01-inch on its predecessor. Thankfully the overall footprint of the device has not increased with the increase in the size of the display. This time around OnePlus has decided to opt for a glass back. The glass back will be available in two variations, the usual glossy glass and the other a glass treated with a matte finish. However, all the variants will come with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back and OnePlus has added gestures for those who wish to disable the navigation keys.
OnePlus 6 offers a dual Rear camera setup, 20MP+16MP Sony IMX519/376, OIS+EIS. Sadly enough not much has changed on the camera front. OnePlus has made minor changes, for instance, the 16-Megapixel camera is mated to a larger sensor and offers Optical Image Stabilisation along with EIS. That apart OnePlus 6 has borrowed the 20-Megapixel f/1.7 primary sensor at the back and the 16-Megapixel lens on the front from its predecessor. Yet another mention worthy feature is the portrait mode for the front-facing camera. The gaming mode now allows users to set LTE priority, a feature that will come in handy during multiplayer online gaming.
OnePlus has also introduced Student Ambassador program in India and has expanded the OnePlus Experience stores to five new cities. The company has also announced that it will be opening 10 new service centers across India. The OnePlus Bullet headphone is priced at Rs 3,999 in India.
