OnePlus 6 Accidental Leak before Launch


The infamous OnePlus 6 has been leaked yet again just 2 days before it’s launch worldwide. TechieScoops has covered OnePlus 6 leaks before, but this time the leaks are in full form.

Earlier today, the smartphone was accidentally listed on Amazon’s Germany website. This leak was the most legitimate and detailed yet and was reportedly spotted first by a German Website – WinFuture. The leaks feature a full view of the OnePlus 6 in different angles and brief specifications.


Leaked Design of the OnePlus 6

The flagship device will be released in two form-factors, a glass variant supposedly called “Mirror Black” and a metal variant that is “Midnight Black”, according to the leaks.

The leaked images give us a view of the new design changes in the smartphone. First off, the fan-favorite alert slider has been moved to the right and volume rockers to the left. The sides of the glass variant are made of aluminum, while the front and back of the phone are curved 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5. The glass, both upfront and in the back, should protect the phone from scratches and falling down.

The back of the phone seems a little curvier than the front. It has a Dual Camera setup of an expected 16MP+20MP camera system and a redesigned ergonomic fingerprint reader. It also features a “Designed by OnePlus” tagline instead of the OnePlus logo, which somehow feels a lot cleaner.

OnePlus is keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack, despite its thin frame, which actually is a really nice touch that I think will relieve users. Apart from that, there’s a USB Type C port and a speaker grill on the bottom. The front display is very edge-to-edge, leaving just a notch and a small but annoyingly noticeable chin on the bottom. The display is curved on all sides, giving it an iPhone X-esque look.

Due to the notch, the display resolution is bumped to an unusual 2280×1080 pixels and a 19:9 screen aspect ratio. The OnePlus 6 is also water and dust repellent according to the listing, although we don’t know the IP rating of the product yet.


Leaked Specs of The OnePlus 6

On the spec sheet, this beast kills in every department with top of the line specs like Snapdragon 845, 6/8GB of RAM with 128GB/256GB of storage, a battery of 3300mAh which is neat.

The smartphone is touted to run Android Oreo 8.1 according to previous benchmark leaks and has an advanced camera system that OnePlus says is the best with a Blind Test on its website. OnePlus has put the OnePlus 6 face to face with the best flagships like S9, Pixel 2 and iPhone X. In my opinion, the Pixel 2 has best camera on a smartphone. Ever. But we’ll have to wait and see how the OnePlus 6 performs out in the field.

Pricing starts at €519 for the 64GB and €569 for the 128GB model.

OnePlus is all set to be unveil their latest device in London on May 16th and then in India and China on May 17th.
