Another change in look will be a glass back on the OnePlus 6 which is also a first for the company. OnePlus says that the smartphone’s glass back panel will feature five printed layers of nanotech coating.
OnePlus will also shift the antenna lines to the sides as opposed to the previous placement on the rear panel. The alert slider will also have a new position although that hasn’t been revealed as yet. Speaking about the alert slider on OnePlus 6, it is expected to come with new shortcuts for the camera according to teasers.
Another Apple inspiration for OnePlus would be iPhone X-like gestures on OnePlus 6. These gestures suited for full display smartphones are tailored for functions like pulling up recent apps, killing an app, and more. Google also introduced similar gestures for its upcoming OS, Android P.
In terms of specifications, OnePlus 6 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. It will come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone is expected to be offered in more variants of 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage.
