OnePlus 6 reportedly coming with Snapdragon 845 SoC and a display with notch

Last year in June, Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5 – its first smartphone with dual rear cameras and 8 GB RAM. Then later in November, the company launched the OnePlus 5T, which came with similar hardware under the hood, but with a full-screen display having an aspect ratio of 18:9. Well now, the latest information that has surfaced online suggests that the OnePlus 6 would come with a display having aspect ratio of 19:9.

According to a report by Android Central, the OnePlus 6 will come with a display having aspect ratio of 19:9, and, a notch up top. That’s because the folks over at Android Central have obtained some snapshots taken on OnePlus 6 that show some empty space on status bar in the center, with the time shown on the left side of the screen instead of right alongside the battery level indicator.

Well, alleged live images of the OnePlus 6 (pictured above) had surfaced online some time ago which not only showed off the back of the phone that looks similar to the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S9+, but, also show off a notch on the front above the display.

That said, the snapshots obtained by Android Central also reveal the AnTuTu benchmark score of 276510 points of OnePlus 6 with model number OnePlus A6000. Well, this is the highest AnTuTu score from any Android device. In fact, higher than the Mi MIX 2S which is going to be launched later this month.

Well a score like this indicates that OnePlus 6 is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, it’s actually not surprising to see the OnePlus 6 coming with Snapdragon 845. After all, previous OnePlus flagships like OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 5/5T were also powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 820 and 835 chips respectively.

Well, we are still a couple of months away from the launch of OnePlus 6, hence, expect more information pertaining to this smartphone to pour over on the Internet in the coming weeks.
