Latest OnePlus teaser hints at repositioned alert slider on OnePlus 6

Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 6 on May 5, and, as we move closer to this expected launch, more and more information pertaining to the OnePlus 6 surfaces online. OnePlus is also sharing teaser images and videos revealing some details of this smartphone, and, the latest teaser it has shared hints at a repositioned alert slider on the OnePlus 6.


OnePlus has shared an image (pictured above) on Twitter by tweetingMore immersion in a refined form factor. Are you ready for the #OnePlus6?“. This image shows the OnePlus 6 kept under the OnePlus 5T. While last year’s OnePlus 5 and 5T came with the alert slider on the left, the OnePlus 6 has it missing on its left side, which means it’s been relocated to the right side of the phone.

That said, the image also shows the volume rocker on the left side of the OnePlus 6, and, you can also see SIM card slot above it, which on last year’s OnePlus phones was located below. Moreover, also visible are the antenna lines, and, it appears that the OnePlus 6 will come with a glass back, which also means that we can expect this smartphone to support Wireless Charging.

Notice the Alert Slider on the right side of the phone

Well, coming back to the alert slider, a press render (pictured above) of the OnePlus 6 that was shared earlier by OnePlus also shows off the alert slider on the right side of the phone. Besides, while the alert slider on earlier OnePlus smartphones was only restricted to adjusting the sound, the alert slider on OnePlus 6 will let you adjust the camera focus as well. At least that’s what the teaser shared by OnePlus last week hints at.

There’s no word from OnePlus yet on when it’s going to launch the OnePlus 6. But, the company is expected to launch the smartphone in China in early May, with global launch expected in late April.
