If you were asked to guess which smartphone maker now has plans to launch its own television, you'd say OnePlus, because read the headline. Had you not, however, you might have guessed Apple. it would have been a logical guess, based on past rumors, but also wrong. OnePlus is on track to beat Apple to the punch with what it's calling the OnePlus TV. OnePlus is best known for its smartphone lineup, of course, as that is primarily what it builds and sells (along with a spattering of related accessories). And it all began "with a simple, bold idea: make a better phone." The company has released several... Read more...
Just a few months ago in April, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei championed the 3.5mm headphone jack in an interview, stating, "Every year I do a Twitter poll and the number of people taking part increases each time, this year there were over 19k votes, and 88% said they like physical headphone jacks." And when the OnePlus 6 (read the HotHardware review here) was officially unveiled in May, Pei mocked companies like Apple that abandoned the headphone jack. OnePlus 6T Now, OnePlus will do the exact same thing with the upcoming OnePlus 6T. Just as the OnePlus 6 embraced the notch, the OnePlus... Read more...
It was just a few short months ago when OnePlus launched its current flagship Android smartphone: the OnePlus 6. As one might expect with a high-end Android device in 2018, it came equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage and a notched display. The company is back it again, this time with the looming release of the OnePlus 6T. We've heard plenty of rumors about the OnePlus 6T over the past month, culminating with a leaked shot of the retail box for the smartphone. Now, however, OnePlus has actually confirmed one of the rumored... Read more...
Shenzhen China-based smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has been on the rise as of late, cultivating a strong following of mobile users that subscribe to the company's "Never Settle" moniker. Its Never Settle mantra refers to an effort the company has made to bring lower cost, unlocked phones to market that do not compromise on quality or performance. If there's one device that perhaps underscores that mantra best, it may be the OnePlus 6.  Codenamed "Enchilada", the OnePlus 6 really has it all (almost, more later). On board is a gorgeous 6.28-inch OLED display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 Mobile... Read more...
It's a good thing that phone makers don't also build submarines, because we have yet to see a high profile launch occur without a bunch of leaks beforehand. That is certainly the situation surrounding OnePlus and its upcoming OnePlus 6T handset. The latest leak involves yet another photo of the OnePlus 6T, presumably an official press render. One of the most widely covered aspect of the OnePlus 6T is the all-front display, and specifically the notch at the top. Unlike the majority of notched phones, OnePlus does not appear to be dedicating a swooping chunk of real estate at the top. Instead, early... Read more...
OnePlus is getting to release a new smartphone, the OnePlus 6T, and word on the street is that it will arrive in October, perhaps as an exclusive to T-Mobile (unless you buy the unlocked model direct from OnePlus). So what will the OnePlus 6T bring to the table besides a faster processor? If the latest leak is any indication, the OnePlus 6T will have an in-display fingerprint reader. A few pictures purporting to show the OnePlus 6T's retail packaging have found their way to Weibo, China's social media site. We can't say if the pictures are real, of course. If they are, however, they confirm that... Read more...
If there's one bit of messaging we keyed on, with respect to Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Note 9 flagship and its high-level feature set, it was the promise of a robust thermal solution that would maintain performance over time and under pressure. Samsung claims the new Galaxy Note 9 employs a "water-carbon cooling" system, with a heat spreader for its Snapdragon 845 SoC and associated circuitry, that's three times larger than the previous generation Galaxy Note. So we figured we'd like to put that to the test. Meanwhile, we've also been spending quality time in the test lab with none other... Read more...
If the only thing that has been holding you back from picking up a OnePlus 6 handset is the lack of a red color option, you are in luck. Following the success of the OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition, OnePlus has decided to now offer a red version of its OnePlus 6, which it apparently put a lot of time and energy into narrowing down the exact shade of red. According to OnePlus, it evaluated hundreds of colors before settling on red. Whether or not Apple's penchant for releasing red iPhone devices played a role is anyone's guess, but as far as OnePlus is concerned, this is about empowering users and tapping... Read more...
After numerous leaks, a whole bunch of rumors, and plenty of speculation OnePlus is (at the time of this writing) just hours away from launching its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 6. The event kicks off in London today at 12:00 PM Eastern (9:00 AM Pacific) during a scheduled press event at the Copper Box Arena.

All you have to do is check back here once things get going and mash play on the embedded live stream below, or hit the source link and... Read more...
The official unveil of the OnePlus 6 is just two days away, but as is the case with many of today's tech gadgets, the leaks just keep coming. The latest leak comes from Amazon Germany, which posted a product listing for the upcoming OnePlus 6 with a Mirror Black finish.  We should note that the product page didn't stay up long after it was first spotted and reported on, but that didn't stop the best images that we've seen of the device to date from being captured. As its naming implies, the Mirror Black version of the OnePlus 6 has a highly reflective glass back. Joining the Mirror... Read more...
Do you think you have a strong eye for photography? OnePlus aims to put that to the test as part of a clever (and fun) marketing strategy to promote the upcoming launch of its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 6. The company has assembled a collection of photographs taken with the OnePlus 6, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Pixel 2, and is asking users to vote on the best one in each category. What makes the challenge so interesting is that the photos are not labeled—there is no indication of which photo was taken with which phone. There is no identifying information in the metadata either,... Read more...
When it comes to unannounced smartphones, China's TENAA regulatory agency is comparable to the FCC in the United States and is prone to leaking device specs ahead of launch. Such is the case with the upcoming OnePlus 6 flagship Android smartphone. A listing on TENAA confirms many of the specs of the smartphone, including the fact that it has a 6.28-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2280x1080. For those keeping score, the OnePlus 5T features a 6-inch display with a 2160x1080 resolution. Another change compared to its predecessor is that the OnePlus 6 will have a notch in its display, which... Read more...
We have been hearing about the OnePlus 6 for several months now, dating back to at least the beginning of the year when it was reported that OnePlus had initiated talks with US carriers to potentially carry its next flagship phone. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but we will find out soon enough—OnePlus is planning to launch the OnePlus 6 on May 16 at the Copper Box Arena in London, and on May 17 in Mumbai. If that is the sort of thing you're interested in attending, you can purchase tickets to the event right now for $21, which represents a $20 early bird discount. OnePlus... Read more...
OnePlus isn't really leaving much to the imagination when it comes to its upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone. Although we've seen plenty of leaked specs for the smartphone hit the internet over the past few weeks, OnePlus is using its own platform to confirm the specs of the new smartphone instead of saving everything for the official reveal. This week, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau penned a long, meandering post entitled "Our Pursuit of Burdenless Speed". In it, Lau confirms what most of us already have already assumed: the OnePlus 6 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that can be paired... Read more...
