OnePlus 5 and 5T Starts Receiving New OxygenOS Open Beta Update
We're going to sum up everything you need to know about the OnePlus 6 before the launch. So, is it a worthy upgrade or is OnePlus running out of ideas? This is because the phone brings a radically new design language for the company, which includes a very tall display with a notch and glass all around.
The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled, showing various improvements and changes to its predecessors, the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5. The primary sensor here is 16-megapixel, while the secondary is a 20-megapixel sensor, which is created to offer a 2x lossless zoom and Portrait mode. The cameras are supported with EIS and dual LED flash. That is, do so once you get the phone next week, as sales don't officially open up until May 22nd. Camera features include improved Portrait mode, Pro Mode, Panorama, HDR, HQ, Dynamic Denoise, Clear Image and RAW Image support. The cameras have also been criticised for producing an oil paint-like effect. Note that unlike the OnePlus 5T, the the secondary sensor is not a telephoto lens and is at the same focal length and aperture as the primary sensor. Up front, you get a 16-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling. The rear cameras support 4K resolution at 30/60 fps.
Slow motion recording also gets bumped up from 120fps to 480fps at 720p. App Actions will predict what you want to do next and for instance, you connect your headphones to the device, Android P OS will surface an action to resume the Spotify playlist you like. Your OnePlus 6 will now boot into recovery mode.
There have been a few other design tweaks too, with OnePlus shifting the Alert Slider to the right-hand side the phone, redesigning the fingerprint scanner and opting for a vertically-aligned camera on the rear of the phone. The new flagship will also let you customise the bokeh effect with circles, hearts and stars - a feature thats also seen on the Galaxy S9. Given that the device has been launched in India, the company has opened the Android P Beta update for download. However, the sensor used on the OnePlus 6 has a slightly larger pixel size, compared to the OnePlus 5T.
At a starting price of $529, the OnePlus 6 is the most expensive OnePlus smartphone so far.
