OnePlus 6 officially confirmed for release this summer

OnePlus 6 flagship to release in Q2 2018 with Snapdragon 845 SoC

Similar to the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 6 is expected to arrive around June which is a couple of months after the Galaxy S9 is launched at MWC 2018. At the same time, they are also in talks with United States telcos to launch their phones under these telcos in hopes that it will bring more awareness to USA customers. Today, through an interview with CNET, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the company's next flagship smartphone would be powered by Snapdragon 845 and it will be debuting late in the second quarter of this year. More themes and overall tone-changes on the OnePlus 6 is something that we are expecting. It stated that OnePlus would be debuting the OnePlus 6 smartphone in June this year.

Peter Lau did not confirm whether OnePlus will release a second device by the end of the year, if they do it will probably be the OnePlus 6T following on from the same pattern as the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. He also reaffirmed that the company has yet to decide whether or not it will release more than one smartphone this year, as it has the past two. Lau claims if the right opportunity and timing came along, it would be happy to experiment.

Another revelation made during the interview was the possibility of OnePlus speaking with USA carriers. As already reported, this deal fell through and the Chinese firm's CEO blasted USA carriers for the failed arrangement. The OnePlus 5T users can unlock the smartphone using their face with the help of the front camera. In an interview with CNET, during the ongoing CES 2018 Pete Lau disclosed this information about the next generation of flagships.

It remains to be seen whether the company will face hurdles in doing so, though, as fellow Chinese firm Huawei this week saw AT&T back out of a planned partnership following pressure from the U.S. government.

OnePlus could unveil its next device sometime in June, which is when OnePlus 5 was launched previous year.
