Companies usually stick to particular naming schemes in order to allow customers to simply identify products. For instance, Samsung has their Galaxy S series along with their Note Series. Well, what about OnePlus? If you think about it, they did follow a naming scheme up until they decided to come out with a ‘T’ variant of the OnePlus 3 in the very same year in which the OnePlus 3 was launched. Sources which are supposedly reliable report that OnePlus will be skipping on a ‘T’ variant of the OnePlus 5 and going straight to the OnePlus 6.
This might bring back some parity as the company did skip on a once rumoured OnePlus 4 which was released as the OnePlus 3T. No reason has been given by the company as to why they are heading straight to the OnePlus 6. Rumour has it that the OnePlus 6 would be released in early 2018 with a larger display than its predecessors. A larger screen may also be accompanied by a higher screen resolution. In all likelihood, the OnePlus 6 could sport a 1440p display resolution.
The recent shift to bezel-less display might see OnePlus doing away with a physical home button and placing the fingerprint scanner at the back of its upcoming rumoured smartphone. The OnePlus 6 would most probably be powered by the Snapdragon 845. It’s possible that the device may be sold in two variants, one with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage and the other with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. A rumour surrounding the OnePlus 6 claims that the company will be doing away with storage expansion via microSD card which the OnePlus 5 has.
Apart from a few rumours and speculation, there is no concrete news surrounding the OnePlus 6. Do stay tuned as the upcoming months may reveal some juicy news about OnePlus’ 2018 flagship smartphone.
