The OnePlus 6 is expected to hit the market in a few months, especially in June. Rumors and alleged leaks have already surfaced online. Interestingly, a new leaked image has apparently confirmed some of the design elements of the OnePlus 6.
The OnePlus 6 image was shared by VentureBeat reporter and notorious Leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter . The photo shows only the back of the device, but it gives everyone a general idea of what the OnePlus 6 will look like and possibly feel in the palm of your hand.
The most obvious thing highlighted by Android Authority for the first time is the The back of the OnePlus 6 looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. The OnePlus 6 has vertically aligned dual cameras and directly below is the back-mounted fingerprint scanner. The layout is almost identical to the Galaxy S9 Plus, but the Flash module on the OnePlus 6 sits between the cameras and the fingerprint scanner.
The layout of these components may be similar to the Galaxy S9, but everything else about the OnePlus 6 seems a bit more unique. The back of the device seems to have a textured surface that looks like a wooden pattern. It could also be some kind of soft material, but it's really impossible to say based on the leaked image alone.
The brand "Designed by OnePlus" is also emblazoned on the lower part of the back, reflecting the alleged leaked image of the OnePlus 6 from last month . The antenna lines remain discreet and the overall picture of the handset is pleasing, to say the least.
The textured back of the new OnePlus mobile phone could help make it stand out in a sea of competition. Glass back panels for flagship smartphones have seen a return thanks to the revived interest in wireless charging, which is partly due to Apple's iPhone X. The leaked image of the OnePlus 6 from last month showed that the device has a glass back. Perhaps the handset in this leak was an early prototype and may not be an indication of the end product.
Finally, the last leaked image of the OnePlus 6 clearly shows that it has a USB Type-C connector, a speaker grill and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The inclusion of the headphone jack will certainly be something that many consumers will appreciate as we see more and more manufacturers ditching it. The OnePlus 6 is also expected to have a display notch.
If the company plans to stick to its typical release plan, the OnePlus 6 can arrive this June. So far, the only thing the company has confirmed is that the upcoming phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
