Leaked Image of OnePlus 6's Front Panel Shows Off the Display Notch
All eyes are now set on OnePlus, which is expected to unveil its upcoming flagship phone, the OnePlus 6, towards the end of this month. As we are nearing its purported launch, we stumbled upon a newly-leaked image of its front fascia that shows off its display notch.
Towards the end of March, the OnePlus CEO Carl Pei shared the first official photograph of the upcoming OnePlus 6 flagship smartphone which reveals the presence of the mainstream screen notch. Another OnePlus executive, the co-founder Pete Lau, also states that the user can mask the notch out, if he or she chooses to do so, using a system update that will roll out sometime after the launch. Since then, rumors are rife regarding OnePlus 6's alleged resemblance with the OPPO R15 design-wise. Apparently, the newly-leaked image of its front panel, which initially appeared on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, will put our minds to rest.
As per the leaked image render, the OnePlus 6 sports a full-screen display with the expected notch on top, which houses the selfie snapper, LED notification light, earpiece, as well as other necessary sensors. The side bezels are almost non-existent while the chin is somewhat visible, but is still minimal in size. Regarding the positioning of the buttons, the device has the power key on the right whereas the volume rocker is on the opposite side alongside the iconic OnePlus alert slider. The fingerprint scanner will sit on the back panel.
Meanwhile, it is worth noting that the promo poster bears the DxOMark logo, suggesting that the camera benchmarking site is already testing the handset. We can also spot the words "See you soon", which hint the smartphone's imminent release to the markets. In fact, it might be outed as early as by the end of this month. It should arrive with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, 16MP+2MP dual-camera setup, and 3,450mAh battery. For sure, all of us are excited to see the OnePlus 6 get unveiled in the coming weeks.
