OnePlus 6 reportedly launching on May 21

OnePlus has been outing details of its upcoming smartphone – the OnePlus 6 – at regular intervals. The company has revealed several details of this smartphone like the presence of notch, Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood, repositioned alert slider with new functionality, and, more recently, a glass back. But, what OnePlus hasn’t yet revealed is its launch date. However, if the latest report is anything to go by, then we could see the company launching the OnePlus 6 in the later part of next month.


According to the information received by GSMArena from one of their readers, the OnePlus 6 is going to be launched on May 21. This reader enrolled in OnePlus’ recently announced ‘The Lab’ program, as a part of which, certain people get a chance to use the device before it’s launched.

Well, this reader, and other people who have been selected in ‘The Lab’, received an email from OnePlus with all the terms and conditions as well as the launch date of the OnePlus 6 which is slated for May 21. If this date turns out to be true, then it will be the first time that OnePlus launched its flagship smartphone this early.

Of course, there’s no word from OnePlus yet regarding the launch date of the OnePlus 6, so take this information with a pinch of salt.
