OnePlus 6 first impression: Gives flagships a run for their money

The most notable of these is that the OnePlus 6 is OnePlus' first all-glass smartphone. Is it enough of a jump for you? If you're not a fan of the notch, you will be able to hide it through the software in a later update.

Audiophiles will be happy to learn that the OnePlus 6 retains the 3.5mm audio jack.

OnePlus has established a cycle of releasing a new phone every six or so months, but it always only sells one phone at a given time.

The OnePlus 6 - the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design - is the company's most sophisticated handset to date. Reports are also there that the phone will have a repositioned alert slider and will sport a blue colour.

Such is the oomph that's been packed into the OnePlus 6, you could actually argue it's overpowered.

You get plenty of storage for apps, music, movies and the like as well. As disclosed by recent leaks the device for the first time will be made available in a Glass finish variant. That's usually one of the perks of a glass back.

The event, which was attended by around 1,000 fans, saw company co-founder Carl Pei take to the stage to show off the follow-up to the OnePlus 5T, boasting of the device's design and construction, saying: "the OnePlus 6 is lovely and functional in equal measure". Altogether the device delivers a 90% Screen to body ratio which is great. It does help in this regard. It is for this very reason that we have curated a list of places from where you can buy/order the OnePlus 6. Again, testing is required to say whether or not this is a marked improvement on the OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus is going with the Snapdragon 845 CPU paired with either 6 or 8GB of RAM, depending on which storage configuration you go with. The smartphone is also expected to get upgraded to Android P by the end of this year.

Perhaps the biggest difference when comparing the OnePlus 6 vs iPhone X is the fact that the X features FaceID technology while it's absent on the OnePlus 6. There are more changes between the two on the inside, though. It also comes with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and lens that has an aperture of F1.7. It still builds powerful flagship contenders, but with a lot more class and a more premium look and feel while still undercutting its big-name rivals.

OnePlus 6 also includes screen gestures, similar to the iPhone X, which helps increase screen real estate by removing the on-screen buttons.

The back features a vertically arranged dual camera setup, with a dual LED flash, pill shaped fingerprint sensor, and the OnePlus logo just below it. Stores where you can walk in and buy the OnePlus 6, get a pair of free bullet wireless headphones, and other swag on release day.

Battery: It is said to be backed by a 3300mAh Dash Charge-compatible battery. That's also not possible on the metal OnePlus 5T. Wireless charging, however, isn't in the cards.

While OnePlus isn't a household name, over the past few years they've carved out a nice spot for themselves in the mobile market.

The 64GB model will cost Rs 36999, while the 128GB storage variant will cost Rs 39999.

Talking about the variants, it is believed that the company will introduce the flagship device in 3 variants as per the RAM storage.
