If you were holding out for a OnePlus 5T, perhaps you shouldn’t – the rumor mill thinks that it’s not happening. Instead, the launch of the OnePlus 6 has been pulled up to early 2018.
Last year, the company launched the 3T as a way to switch to the +1 version of the chipset (Snapdragon 820 to 821) and to raise the price a bit. Well, they did upgrade the selfie cam too.
This year, there will be no +1 for the Snapdragon 835 this year and OnePlus already played the dual camera card. Plus, it offers generous storage and RAM, so there’s not much for a T version to upgrade.
What will the OnePlus 6 be like? Tough to tell for now, but a move to a 6” screen – the first bump in screen size of the series – is not unlikely, especially if combined with an 18:9 screen and a bezel-less design. If that’s true, we’ll hear from Carl Pei and co. about it early on in the hype cycle.
