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. Assuming you have not booked ticket to attend in person, you can still watch the unveiling as it unfolds, as OnePlus will be live streaming the event. 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...
There have been quite a few leaks surrounding the OnePlus 6 over the past month, which means that we must be getting really close to its official launch. We have previously seen leaked prototypes that suggest that the OnePlus 6 will have a notched display, and now we have official confirmation of that design decision. OnePlus sent a cropped image of the smartphone over to The Verge, which shows the notch in all its glory. Needless to say, most Android enthusiasts have not taken too kindly to the design trend, because it reminds them too much of the iPhone X. And if we recall, even Apple fans weren't... Read more...
Back at the beginning of the year, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau talked about the OnePlus 6, saying at the time that work had begun on the phone and that it will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip. That is the same mobile processor that powers Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ handsets in the US. Ahead of the phone's launch, however, some benchmarks emerged that show the OnePlus 6 outperforming Samsung's flagship handsets. Before we go any further, the standard disclaimer applies—leaked benchmarks are not a reliable to draw any conclusions about a device's final performance, for a variety... Read more...
When Apple released its iPhone X with a conspicuous notch on the otherwise full front display panel, there was lots of pointing and laughing (particularly by Samsung). Notch or no notch, the iPhone X became Apple's "top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November" and led to a record quarterly revenue, the company announced earlier this month. The laughter has started to subside, however, and now players in the Android camp are taking a page from the iPhone X's unique design. Leaked photos that purportedly show a OnePlus 6 handset suggest that OnePlus is among the copycats. ASUS is the... Read more...
OnePlus has built a name for itself by releasing Android phones that offer a high bang-for-buck, and in the process has attracted a modest following. Sacrifices sometimes have to be made to maintain a lower price than the competition, though one unexpected compromise was that the company's OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T phones debuted without the ability to stream HD video from a handful of services, including Netflix. OnePlus is rectifying the situation with an update, though it's not something owners can download on their own. The issue at hand is a digital rights management (DRM) one, and specifically...

OnePlus is currently in the midst of investigating a credit card payment processing breach on its website, and we're now learning the full scope of the vulnerability. As promised, and adhering to its commitment to providing full disclose, OnePlus says that anyone that entered their credit card details (card numbers, expiry dates and security codes) via oneplus.net between mid-November 2017 and January 11, 2018 may have been exposed. According to OnePlus, that means that as many as 40,000 customers are affected and could potentially begin seeing fraudulent charges on their credit cards (if they... Read more...
Yesterday, we reported that OnePlus had a potential serious security breach on its hands following reports from dozens of customers that they had experienced fraudulent activity on their credit cards after purchasing phones from the company's website. Security firm Fidus researched the issue and found that a small vulnerability in OnePlus’ credit payment processing platform on the website could be ripe for attack. "Card payments are handled by CyberSource, the processing form is still hosted on the OnePlus infrastructure," said Fidus. "If an attacker had write access to this page, JavaScript... Read more...
OnePlus doesn't exactly have a stellar record when it comes to security and user privacy; we learned this late last year when it was discovered that the company’s OxygenOS was collecting private user data without permission. Now, however, we're learning of a new issue that is plaguing the OnePlus website, and it is definitely a more serious concern. Security firm Fidus noticed a forum posting by one OnePlus owner that claimed that they purchased two OnePlus smartphones in November 2017 using two different credit cards. According to the person, these cards were only used to purchase the smartphones... Read more...
It is fair to say that OnePlus does not have the same brand recognition as Apple or Samsung, to name just two smartphone makers with much bigger footprints. What would help is if OnePlus was able to partner with US wireless carriers to sell its phones through AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile, though as we have seen, Chinese phone makers face an uphill battle. Be that as it may, OnePlus is willing to go that route, if the opportunity comes along. "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment," Pete Lau, chief executive of OnePlus, told CNET in an... Read more...
