Vivo and Oppo have been the biggest players in the mid-range smartphone market, while OnePlus has been pushed forward as the “flagship killer” brand. One of the most awaited smartphones of the year 2018, which will reportedly also be embracing the iPhone X notch is going to be the OnePlus 6, and it seems that we’re not too far away from an official release.
Based on the latest documentation of the Wi-Fi Alliance, OnePlus 6 deemed with model number A6003 has been certified for interoperability testing. The device seems to have been certified all the way back in November, so OnePlus may not have launched the flagship at the end of March as previously rumored, but the unveiling could be closer than you think.
Another interesting piece of information revealed from the Wi-Fi certification is the fact that the tested OnePlus 6 device was running OxygenOS OS 5.1, that is based on the latest Android version at the moment, the 8.1 Oreo. Refreshingly enough, this would be the first OnePlus device in a while to come out packing the latest version of Android right out of the box.
OnePlus 6 is rumored to be powered by the current-gen-best processor in Snapdragon 845 — this one also powers the Galaxy S9 sets — coupled with 6/8GB of RAm and 128/256GB of storage. We’re expecting OnePlus to give us super slow-motion recording ability too with the device, as well as a feature that’s surprisingly been missing so far, water and dust resistance.
