Here’s a clear look at the OnePlus 6

Before a flagship smartphone is launched, there are a couple of instances where the full design is revealed by a case maker. Looks like the OnePlus 6 isn’t spared and we now get a clearer view of the device.

While the OnePlus 6 official launch date isn’t announced yet, case maker Olixar has started selling the cases for it online. As expected, the front gets a notch on the top display but what’s surprising is that the screen stretches edge to edge for the entire front. Of course, the render might not be 100% accurate but the position of the buttons and cut out holes for camera and sensors should be at the right spot.

Over at the back, it gets a vertically mounted dual-camera bump, while the LED flash and fingerprint sensor is placed right underneath it. Overall, it looks somewhat similar to a Galaxy S9+. The design matches the earlier leaked hands-on photo of the OnePlus 6.

From the case renders, the OnePlus 6’s volume rockers are placed on the left side of the phone, while the right side houses the notification slider and power/wake button. In terms of specs, the OnePlus 6 will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The display is expected to be a 6.28-incher like the OPPO R15.

When OnePlus recently posted a teaser image of the OnePlus 6 stacked below its current OnePlus 5T, it looks like they have removed its notification slider. Now it’s certain that the slider is still retained but they have moved it to a different spot.
