OnePlus 6 debuts with new design, familiar notch, and performance that’ll blow you away
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since OnePlus has been announcing bits and pieces of info about the OnePlus 6 for weeks now, but the company on Wednesday finally made its new flagship smartphone official. The OnePlus 6 was unveiled during a press conference in London today, and it is by far OnePlus’ most impressive smartphone to date. Featuring cutting-edge specs and a design that’s fresh and new for a OnePlus phone, though it’s somewhat controversial as well. Despite OnePlus’ efforts to explain it away, the OnePlus 6 obviously copied the notch from Apple’s iPhone X. It’s one of dozens of Android phones that have lifted this design from Apple, and it certainly won’t be the last. In fact, Google had no choice but to add native notch support to Android P because so many smartphone makers have adopted Apple’s design.
Of course, the OnePlus 6 is much more than a notch in a display. It’s one of the sleekest and most powerful Android smartphones in the world right now, and Android fans have finally been told when they can get their hands on it. I’ve already had my hands on the OnePlus 6 for a while now, and I’ll share my initial impressions in this post.
