Yesterday, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau (Pete Lau) shared an interesting post at the forum. In it, he told that their next flagship smartphone will receive a glass case.
What is known
The glass cases are now in a trend, as are the cutouts on the screen. Therefore, the company decided to follow them. According to Lau, before stopping at the final design of the device, the manufacturer tested more than 70 types of glass. OnePlus wanted to achieve premium sensations of the smartphone in his hand. In addition, the back of the device is covered with a special layer - Nanotech, to create the effect of "depth". Naturally, the glass case will make the smartphone more fragile, but this also has its advantage - wireless charging.
According to the latest rumors and leaks, the device will receive a 6.28-inch screen with a cut and a ratio of 19: 9. For the device will be responsible for the top-end chip this year - Snapdragon 845, as well as 6/8 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB ROM. The novelty will be equipped with a dual main camera module for 16 Mp + 20 Mp, a battery for 3450 mAh with support for fast charging Dash Charge V2.
Price and when to wait
The announcement of the smartphone can be held on May 18. For the top configuration on 8/256 GB will have to pay about $ 700. With such a price tag, the smartphone will be more difficult to compete, for example, with the same Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s or Honor 10 . Therefore, the manufacturer will rely on the features of the new device to attract customers.
