OnePlus has garnered praise for its phones due to higher-end specifications that come at a price point much lower than other flagship Android devices. The OnePlus 6 isn't the latest smartphone from the company having launched in May of this year, but the company is offering up a very nice discount on the entire OnePlus 6 range that may make this the most appealing smartphone deal on Black Friday. OnePlus is selling the entire line of unlocked OnePlus 6 smartphones that will operate on AT&T, T-Mobile, or U.S. Cellular. The discount on all models of the smartphone is $100, and that is an instant discount; not something where you pay full price and wait months for a pre-paid... Read more...
The OnePlus 6T is likely one of the most highly anticipated flagship smartphones for 2018, not only due to the features that it will bring to the table, but also because of the company's reputation for value pricing. While the smartphone isn't expected to make its global debut until October 17th, new renders have shown off the device from nearly every angle. We've previously seen shots of the smartphone from the front, which show its drastically reduced display notch. The notch is better integrated this time around and deftly contours around the single front-facing selfie camera. There are minimal bezels along the side of the display, while there's a small "chin" at the bottom. Out... Read more...
If you're a OnePlus 6 owners, there's a fresh, hot delivery coming your way today. After a lengthy beta period where testers were able to give the Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS 9.0 a try, OnePlus has announced that the production release of the operating system is available to download. Now before you all start rushing to the Settings app to initiate the OS update, we have to warn you that this rollout is being staged. OnePlus doesn't want everyone crowding its servers at once, and this will give the company a chance to catch any initial installation issues with a smaller sample size.  "The OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days...

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 Platform, up to 8GB of RAM, dual rear cameras, up to 256GB of storage, USB-C, and a dedicated headphone... Read more...
OnePlus already has a cult following within the United States thanks to its popular flagship smartphones. OnePlus' claim to fame comes from its beefy hardware specs, excellent build quality, close-to-pure Android experience, and attractive pricing.  OnePlus 6 However, OnePlus is looking to go after more of the mainstream market and has reached out to T-Mobile for help in this arena. CNET is reporting that third-place U.S. wireless carrier T-Mobile has been tapped by OnePlus to carry the upcoming OnePlus 6T smartphone. T-Mobile will reportedly be the exclusive carrier for the OnePlus 6T if you don't want to pay buy the device unlocked direct from OnePlus at full price. The... 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 than the OnePlus 6 -- an Android superphone in its own right, with 8GB of RAM and a near bone-stock... 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 into their "inner confidence and courage," or something like that. "Deciding on this color was... Read more...
The OnePlus 6 has been officially announced, and if you've been following the leaks over the past few weeks (and months), then you know exactly what to expect. First of all, let’s get the specs out of the way. OnePlus says that it wanted to give customers the fastest mobile experience possible, which means that the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The base configuration pairs that processor with 6GB of RAM, while the top configuration come with 8GB. Likewise, the base phone has 64GB of internal storage, while the range-topping model ups the ante with 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. An 8GB/128GB configuration fits neatly in between. All other features... 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. 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 do the same. We are not expecting a bunch of surprises from the event, as many of the details have... 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 Black finish is a more “mundane” Midnight Black finish. The images also reveal the vertically-stacked... 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, and every shot is the exact same size. You can enlarge each image for a closer look at the details,... 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 can be hidden if you absolutely loathe the idea. The processor is listed as an octa-core unit clocked... 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 is also tossing in a free gift, along with a "goodie bag that's worth a lot more than the price of... 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 with up to a staggering 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. The storage figure matches the... 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 exactly enthralled with the iPhone X's notched display at the time of its release (or its starting... 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 of reasons. That said, we often see benchmarks on Geekbench for products that have not yet been... Read more...
Given the design similarities between previous Oppo smartphone designs compared to their OnePlus counterparts, we just got big glimpse at what to expect when the OnePlus 6 is unveiled later this year. The Oppo R15 was officially unveiled this week in China, and for better or worse, it comes with a rather prominent display notch (a la the iPhone X). The Oppo R15 has a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2280x1080 that is covered in Gorilla Glass 5. While the overall look of the device (at least from the front) will likely mirror that of the upcoming OnePlus 6, there will be big differences with the internal components. The Oppo R15 features an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC paired with... Read more...
To notch or not to notch, that is the question. When the Essential Phone was released during the summer of 2017, many people took notice of the tiny notch that was carved from the top of the display to accommodate the selfie camera. The design allowed for a rather expansive display area while maintaining relatively small bezels. Apple took that "notched" display design trend to the extreme with the iPhone X with a rather large area reserved for the front-facing camera, earpiece, ambient light sensor and hardware necessary for Face ID authentication. Although the iPhone X was revealed just a few months ago, the copying machines have already started firing up, as a number of manufacturers have... 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 other company that is taking inspiration from the iPhone X, to put it nicely. The company's recently... 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 interview at CES. Lau did not say when something like this might happen or if the company is anywhere... Read more...
