OnePlus has finally announced it will soon launch its upcoming flagship phone the OnePlus 6 in India. The phone, which will go on sale exclusively on Amazon in India, has a dedicated page where users can register and use the ‘Notify Me’ option to get notified when the phone becomes available.
OnePlus 6 has been one of the most anticipated Android phones of the year not only because it will be the latest flagship phone from the OnePlus stable but also since it brings a whole new design concept to the highly sought-after OnePlus devices.
The phone will sport a ‘notch’ design on the display, a trend kick-started by Apple’s iPhone X and embraced by almost every Android device maker lately. However, users who do not want the notch will also be able to black them out in landscape mode. Apart from the display OnePlus has also teased several features of the phone through tweets.
The latest tweet by the company reads, ‘Same expert craftsmanship, new materials’ along with a shiny backcover which is a confirmation that the phone will have a glass back panel. The tease also partly confirms that the phone might feature wireless charging which has been a highly anticipated feature of the phone.

The company has confirmed the phone will feature the latest and the fastest Qualcomm processor, the octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC along with an 8 GB RAM configuration. It is also confirmed that the phone will come with a 256GB internal storage. However, it is still unsure the phone will have any other RAM + storage variant.
The company also confirmed the phone will be waterproof by tweeting, ‘Don’t you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains? So do we.’
