Highlight: OnePlus 6 may be inspired by the leaked Oppo’s flagship R15, history of the OnePlus suggest that.
We all know that BBK Electronics is the parent company of OnePlus, Oppo and Vivo. They always launch smartphones with similar designs. If you can recall the history then you will understand why the design of the upcoming OnePlus 6 will be like this. Previously Oppo launched Oppo R11 which inspired the OnePlus 5 with the similar type of design. Both Oppo R11 and OnePlus 5 had the similar design. Both had the horizontal dual rear camera setup, antenna bands, and same fingerprint sensor placement. That design was kind of copy of the iPhone 7 Plus. Then Oppo launched R11s, the slightly upgraded version of R11, and OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T, the successor of the OnePlus 5. Again, they shared the similar type of design.
Now, Oppo’s upcoming flagship Oppo R15 leaked and will be launched very soon. So, we expect that the upcoming OnePlus 6 will sport the same design. Leaked images suggest that the back design will remain the same as the OnePlus 5T. The horizontal dual rear camera setup, antenna bands and fingerprint sensor on the back. But when it comes to the front, Oppo R15 will sport the iPhone X like ‘Notch’ and edge to edge display. So, this design expected to inspire the OnePlus 6.
Leaks and rumors suggest that upcoming OnePlus flagship will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC which is the best SoC from Qualcomm. This beast will have 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage. FaceID will come on this Oppo R15 but according to leaked images, there’s no on-screen fingerprint scanner on Oppo R15. The Notch will have the speaker grill and the front-facing camera. What do you think about this upcoming OnePlus 6? Let us know in the comments below.
