The OnePlus 6 has a larger 6.28-inch 19:9 display with notch compare to OnePlus 5T, but the company opted for the just FullHD+ resolution (2280 x 1080) despite being the Flagship device. The new OnePlus 6 introduces a new design with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at both front & back which attracts smudges easily. The device comes in 3 colours, Mirror Black, Midnight Black and Silk White (goes on sale after 15 days). The Avengers Edition also comes with same Mirror Glass glossy finish with Carbon Fiber pattern underneath. On the left side, there are volume control buttons & dual sim tray. The power button sits on the right along with the alert slider. At the bottom, there’s the 3.5mm headphone jack, a Type-C USB 2.0 port, and a loudspeaker. There’s no word about IP certification (water & dust resistant), but the company claims the OnePlus 6 has been designed to be water-resistant for “everyday occasions, such as rain or an accidental drop in a puddle, rather than for extreme scenarios”.
