The OnePlus 6 is expected to be the company's most expensive smartphone yet at around the £500 mark.

Note that the phone will go on sale in India from May 21.

Performance wise, this will be the fastest OnePlus yet, and one of the fastest phones in the industry, too.

The OnePlus 6 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the same chip that is also inside other high-end phones this year.

Additionally, the phone is rumored to come with new Dash Charge v2.0, wherein a 20-minute charge is enough to fuel the device for a full day talk-time capability. The rear side will feature a dual camera comprising 20MP and 16MP sensors. Apart from the main components, onePlus 6 also comprises a speaker cited at the bottom portion of the model, 3.3 mm headphone jack, and the USB port.

It has also partnered with Amazon in India to sell the flagship on the same date.

First let's discuss the launches - I say launches as they are launching it in three locations - their three biggest markets: Europe, China and India. According to reports, OnePlus has plans to integrate advanced face recognition technology on the OnePlus 6. Fans will be able to experience and purchase the powerful and stylish OnePlus 6 at these pop-up stores over two days, on a first-come-first-serve basis. The 128GB storage variant is said to cost Rs. 39,999, while the OnePlus 6 price in India for the 256GB variant has not been revealed yet.

There is no information on the pricing of the third variant yet, but expect it to be close to the Rs 45,000-mark. For instance, the company has recently confirmed that an Avenger Limited Edition of OnePlus 6 is also coming.

On the specs front, the smartphone will be offered in 3 variants depending on the RAM offered on it - 4GB, 6GB and 8GB. Much like the OnePlus 5T, which was introduced barely five months after the launch of its predecessor, the upgrade comes within a similar time frame.
