Reports and speculations are all we have to go on, as far as specifications are concerned. OnePlus 6 may feature a 6.28-inch QHD+ display, and will possibly be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor. This seems quite plausible, considering OnePlus' track record of power-packed smartphones.

On the software front, the smartphone could run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. It will possibly come in two variants, with the base model having 6GB RAM plus 64GB storage. The more high-end variant will pack 8GB RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

The OnePlus 6's expected price tag was recently leaked as well. The base variant of the smartphone is said to be priced at CNY 3,299 (around 34,200) and the high-end one at CNY 4,399 (around 46,000).
