Some specs and features of the device have also been officially announced by OnePlus and now a fresh report from Nashville Chatter hints at the possibility that alongside the phone, the company could also unveil the ‘OnePlus Bullets Wireless’ headphones with model number BT31B, which were were spotted on a Bluetooth certification website.

Coming to the OnePlus 6, the smartphone will feature a notch on the top of its display and this was confirmed by both, the company’s CEO Pete Lau and the Co-Founder Carl Pei. The revelation led to an outcry from their customers but the company has already decided upon implementing the trending design and says that it was a necessary step in order to give more usable screen area to their users. Lau also said that for those users who consider the notch an aberration in the smartphone’s design, there will be a compatibility mode, which will black out the sides of the notch while the phone is in portrait mode. The company says that the feature can be set for individual app and it has tested it for the top 1000 apps on the Play Store to find that it “works wonderfully."
Lau says that the phone aims at delivering “burdenless speed” for users as it’s equipped with 8GB RAM, 256GB internal storage. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor. Pete Lau broke the news on the official OnePlus forum saying, “Fast is about ensuring there is less than a 1/1000 percent likelihood of your phone freezing, even under constant heavy use. To us, it’s about setting a higher standard. To create this higher standard, we start with the best hardware: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Choosing the best hardware is the easy part, the real challenge is in making the best hardware perform in ways that adds value to the experience of the user. Within the OnePlus R&D team, we have a specialized team called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient). Their focus is solely on maximizing the power of our flagship devices.”
