OnePlus is a small Chinese smartphone maker that for the last several years has offered high-end handsets as an alternative to Apple iPhones or Samsung’s Galaxy handsets. While the OnePlus phones haven’t grabbed much market share from the big players, they have impressed mobile industry watchers and buyers with their quality. Its latest model, the OnePlus 6, is expected to debut in the first half of 2018. The handset will reportedly run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 and will include a screen good enough rival some of its top competitors. This slide show will cover the features this smartphone is expected to delivery when it debuts in a few weeks.

Look for a 6.3-Inch Display

OnePlus could opt for a 6.3-inch screen in its next flagship smartphone, reports say. However, with a predicted resolution of 2,280-by-1,080 pixels, the smartphone might not offer the same visual quality that users would get in a Galaxy S9 or even iPhone X.

A High-End Phone Requires a Powerful Battery

There have been no concrete reports of yet on exactly how long the OnePlus 6 battery will last. However, OnePlus is expected to bundle a large battery pack in the device, which should allow for at least all-day battery life. Additionally, the back panel is expected to be made of glass, which could enable fast wireless charging.

OnePlus 6 Will Have a Fingerprint Sensor and Face Scanner

The OnePlus 6 will ship with two biometric functions, most reports say. The chief option, a fingerprint sensor, will be situated on the rear panel and allow users to unlock the handset and access safeguarded data. A face scanner on the front will also be available, but it will likely be a 2D version, which will make it less secure and less reliable than the 3D scanner in the iPhone X.

Expect to Find Android Oreo

OnePlus is reportedly planning to bundle Android Oreo 8.1.1. The company’s Oxygen OS will also be bundled with the smartphone and run on top of Oreo. Historically, Oxygen OS has been a lightweight Android skin that generally makes it easier to find critical functions. As long as OnePlus hasn’t made any major changes to Oxygen OS, OnePlus 6 should deliver one of the better custom Android user interfaces.

It Will Have Plenty of RAM, But Not So Much Storage

Reports say the OnePlus 6 will contain a whopping 6GB of RAM, which should support outstanding performance across all apps. However, OnePlus might try to save some cash by putting just 64GB of storage inside the smartphone.
