- OnePlus 6 is expected to debut around April-end or early May
- OnePlus 6 will be replaced by OnePlus 6T in second half of 2018
In the first teaser, OnePlus has hinted that the OnePlus 5T successor, which is expected come with Android Oreo-based OxygeOS 5.1 OS will have new gesture features. Going by the video, we believe OnePlus 6 users will be able to invoke an app or a function just by drawing the alphabets on the home screen.
And also, swiping up and down will open up app drawer or notification center or bring up recently opened apps so that user can navigate through the list and select a task to resume, or the user can remove a task from the list by swiping it away.
In the second teaser, OnePlus claims to have added new physical camera feature, which allows the user to utilize alert slider on the left side of the phone and the adjust camera focus. Previously alert slider only performed three tasks helping the user to set phone's notification modes—ring, silent and do not disturb—but now, it will have an additional function of adjusting the focus of the camera.

As per recent reports, OnePlus 6 is said to flaunt metal-shell with a layer of glass on top, which means it is most likely to come with wireless charging capability, which was sorely missed in the OnePlus 5 series.
On the front, it is said to sport a 6.2-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen having 19:9 aspect ratio and is confirmed to boast Apple iPhone X[review]-like notch on top of the display, which will house 20MP front-camera with face unlock capability.

OnePlus 6 will be offered in three storage options—64GB, 128GB and 256GB—for ¥3,299 (approx. $525/€426/Rs 34,132), ¥3,799 (approx. $604/€491/Rs 39,305) and ¥4,399 (approx. $700/€569/Rs 45,510), respectively.
