OnePlus 6 specs: Notch display, tons of storage, but still no IP rating

OnePlus phones traditionally have the most top-of-the-line specs on the market — last year’s OnePlus 5T came with the latest Snapdragon processor and up to 8GB of RAM. So, it should come as no surprise that the OnePlus 6 specs are some of the best that you can get in early 2018.

Let’s begin with the biggest change from last year’s phone — the screen. The screen itself isn’t anything new, though OnePlus has, somewhat controversially, adopted the iPhone X-like notch for the OnePlus 6. Some people won’t mind it, most won’t like it, and you can even hide it if it bugs you that much.

The AMOLED display itself measures 6.28 inches, comes with a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution, and has a tall aspect ratio of 19:9.

One thing that’s also changed this time around is the new glass design. Unfortunately OnePlus didn’t include wireless charging support with the switch to glass, nor did it include an IP rating. OnePlus said it focused on designing a phone that’s water resistant for “everyday occasions, rather than for extreme scenarios.” This was likely done to help keep the cost down, but that still won’t go over well with some Android Authority readers.

The OnePlus 6 is a beast under the hood. It comes with the powerful Snapdragon 845 SoC, along with 6 or 8GB of RAM. There’s no microSD card support, but OnePlus is offering the phone in 64, 128, and 256GB storage variants.

The OnePlus 6 camera setup has improved only slightly from the 5T. This year’s device has a dual 16 and 20MP camera setup around back. The secondary 20MP sensor is unchanged from the 5T, but the primary lens has been upgraded to a Sony IMX 519 sensor and has larger 1.22μm pixels, as opposed to the 5T’s 1.12μm pixels. It also has the same front-facing camera from before.
