The OnePlus 6 launch is around the corner and while the company has started teasing the flagship, it has also started to play ads in India to create the buzz around the launch. The ad features the tagline "The speed you need" which is basically a focus on the high-speed performance but one important thing to notice is the Amazon exclusive logo. The ad was actually spotted at a local cinema prior to the start of the movie.
It basically means that OnePlus 6 will be an Amazon exclusive offering in India. This is not surprising considering that all of the OnePlus devices starting from OnePlus One have been sold exclusively via Amazon India (especially during the initial period). It means buyers will be able to get their hands on the next flagship only via Amazon apart from the OnePlus online store.
The OnePlus 6 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB/8GB of RAM. It is expected to feature 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options with no support for microSD cards. It is further speculated to feature dual rear cameras but with a vertical alignment instead of the horizontal alignment.
OnePlus has already confirmed that there will be a notch at the top which is something not everyone is a fan of. Other expected features include the edge-to-edge display, fingerprint scanner, Dash Charge fast charging. It is also expected to cost higher than any of the previous generation OnePlus devices. It is speculated to cost 3299 Yuan, 3799 Yuan, and 4399 Yuan for 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB variants.
There will also be a OnePlus 6 Avengers special edition for which it partnered with Marvel Studios. It will be unveiled on April 27th. 2018 worldwide. This suggests we should hear about the standard OnePlus 6 around the same time.
