The OnePlus 5T went out of stock in North America fanning flames of a OnePlus 6 launch last this week. Now, a new render of a live OnePlus 6 has emerged from the well-known Evan Blass. Coming from Blass, we can vouch for the authenticity of the leak and draw some conclusions from the image.
The OnePlus 6 captured in the snap is seen lying face-down with only the rear in view. Sadly, if you’re looking for info on the notch, you’ll have to wait some more. For now, the interesting thing is the back texture. OnePlus phones come with plain coloured metal backs but it seems that will change with the OnePlus 6. There is clearly a wooden-finish back on the device with a Gray shade on the handset. Also, this isn’t a snap on cover that OnePlus has been selling all these years. Instead, this seems to be the actual back of the phone itself.
Apart from that, OnePlus fans can heave a sigh of relief at the sight of the 3.5mm headphone jack. Unsurprisingly, there’s also a USB Type-C and a speaker grill at the bottom of the device. Another juicy detail visible is the square-ish fingerprint reader which sits well with the square OnePlus logo beneath it. OnePlus also returns to its roots with the camera placement now vertically aligned in the centre.
As for the front, OnePlus is widely rumoured to go along with the likes of Oppo and Vivo boarding the notch train although it has been disliked by fans. Apart from build, the OnePlus 6 will feature top draw specs as usual. A recently leaked spec sheet shed light on some specifics like the battery and the selfie shooter.
