OnePlus 6 Official Image Revealed, Confirmed to Have a Notch
OnePlus 6, the next flagship smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer has been surfacing on the internet from past few weeks. Now in an exclusive interview with the Verge, Company’s co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus 6 will bear a top-notch similar to Apple iPhone X.
Pei has revealed that the notch on the upcoming smartphone will be smaller than the Apple iPhone X but a bit bigger than the one present in Essential Phone. The top notch of OnePlus 6 will measure 19.616mm x 7.687mm and feature a front-facing camera along with earpiece, LED notification light and proximity sensor.
According to Pei, the presence of a notch on the OnePlus 6 will provide its users with more screen space. Compared to all the predecessor OnePlus phones, the OnePlus 6 will be offering the highest screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent.
Pei further says that OnePlus team has manually tested the top 1,000 apps from Play Store that would require compatibility mode with the notch. The company is shifting the clock on the left side to give more space to status icons, and it’s going to disguise the notch anytime a user is playing a video.
OnePlus is also working on gesture controls that will eliminate the need of navigation buttons, and you will get additional space at the bottom. Unlike the OnePlus 5T, the upcoming OnePlus 6 will be offering 19:9 aspect ratio. Also, a recent leak from Evan Blass had revealed that the handset would be arriving with a 3.5mm audio jack, USB-C port, and an external speaker grille. The back panel of the phone would be featuring a vertically stacked dual camera setup and a fingerprint reader.
Since the OnePlus 6 is expected to launch in the next couple of months, we might see more leaks in the coming weeks. Stay tuned with us for more details.
