The screen is 6.28 inches in size, with a 19:9 aspect ratio, and it’s covered in protective Gorilla Glass 5.
OnePlus has kept the headphone jack for the OnePlus 6, and it’s also made the handset more water resistant over (vs its previous handsets).
Both the front and the back of the OnePlus 6 is covered in Gorilla Glass 5 – a first for the firm’s flagship line of smartphones.
The alert slider has moved to the right of the phone, above the power/lock key, with the SIM tray moving to the right, above the volume rocker.
The OnePlus 6 will be available in the reflective Mirror Black, matte Midnight Black and striking Silk White. OnePlus says it’s worked the glass to feel like ceramic.

The OnePlus 6 comes with dual rear cameras, one is 20MP and the other is 16MP. Both sensors are made by Sony and feature both OIS and EIS.
The handset also feature’s Dash Charge, giving the OnePlus 6 ‘a day’s power in half an hour.’ The battery size remains the same as the OnePlus 5 and 5T though, at 3,300mAh.
OnePlus 6 power and storage
The OnePlus 6 packs in a Snapdragon 845 chipset, the flagship power unit from chip maker Qualcomm, ensuring there’s plenty of power under the hood.
