The much-awaited OnePlus 6 Android Smartphone hits the Indian grounds and it has created a bash in the tech community fans.
After a lot of leaks and official announcements, the Indian tech community finally had its chance to get hands-on experience of the device in Mumbai. As expected, the device felt super premium in hands and it had a strong finish to it.
The specifications that we have previously discussed on the blog have been absolutely right. Now that we have the device specifications in front of us, listed below are the official specifications that were announced by OnePlus in a launch event in Mumbai this afternoon.
OnePlus 6 Android Smartphone Design
Starting from the overall design of the OnePlus 6, the phone is extremely elegant. The device is quick slim and has a very good hand-hold feeling.
The hardware buttons present around the OnePlus 6 Android Smartphone are extremely tactile and there is good click feedback when pressed.
OnePlus decides to keep the alert slider and the power button on the right edge of the device. Whereas the left edge is now only left with the volume rocker buttons.
The bottom of the device is similar to the OnePlus 5T. It has the USB Type-C port which would be used for Dash Charging and a headphone jack. There is also a mono speaker grill present down there.
The back of the device is what makes the device stand out and OnePlus has also engraved a ‘Designed by OnePlus Branding’ at the back of every variant of the OnePlus 6 Android Smartphone.
The back comes in two textures- one is a matte black and the other is more like a glass back. Both of the devices seem very premium to hold but the glass back is of course exploited to more scratches that the matte black OnePlus 6.
Taking a closer look at the back, we have the vertically standing dual camera setup and right below it is the egg-shaped fingerprint reader.
For some reason, OnePlus decided to not continue the round fingerprint reader like it did with the OnePlus 5T, hence, stuck with the oval egg-shape.
Also, OnePlus claims that the fingerprint reader takes just 0.2-seconds for the device to unlock- which is freaking fast.
As usual, right below the fingerprint reader is the OnePlus logo which is at a considerable distance from the designed by OnePlus branding that is close to the bottom edge of the device.
About Dual-Cameras Setup On OnePlus 6
Talking about the cameras present on the back, both the cameras are AI supported and are Sony lenses. The primary shooter is a 20-megapixel lens whereas its supporting other is 16-megapixels.
The primary camera is said to have Optical Image Stabilization and the secondary one settles with Electronic Image Stabilization. The rear camera can shoot 4k resolution video in 60FPS but is limited to one minute of recording.
The front camera is a sharp 16-megapixel shooter and is equipped with AI beauty mode. Another special feature that the front lens would offer is the capability to shoot portrait selfies.
OnePlus showcased a few camera samples and the pictures look perfectly vivid with the right tones all around.
