If OnePlus has got anything, that’s class. The way they package their accessories is Apple-worthy, thanks to the attention to details and all sorts of little quirks. OnePlus 6 is no exception and that’s why we unboxed it carefully here.
Priced at around $529 in the starting version, the device was unveiled in May this year as the OnePlus main phone and flagship for 2018. The basic version offers 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, but there’s also a model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage at around $579 and one with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for $629.

The first thing I noticed about the phone is how light it feels, even at a 6.28 inch diagonal. Also, the back side looks more like metal than glass, but it actually is glass, a matte glass. Inside the box we find the Dash Charger with 5V/4A charging, the USB Type-C cable, manual, metal key and a case that’s flexible and transparent.
OnePlus 6 measures 7.8 mm in thickness and weighs 177 grams. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU and uses an Optic AMOLED screen panel with a notch and Full HD+ resolution. The phone is available in Red, Silk White, Mirror Black and Midnight Black. It also packs a 3300 mAh battery and no microSD card slot. There’s a fingerprint scanner at the back and we also have Face Unlock available.
Upfront there’s a 16 MP camera for selfies and at the back we find two camera sensors, with 16 MP and 20 MP resolution. There’s also OIS in the mix, 4K video capture at 60 FPS, plus Bokeh/Portrait and F/1.7 aperture. The phone is water resistant, but without IP rating, so that’s odd. We’re running on Android 8.1 Oreo here, with Oxygen OS on top, which feels clean and well organized.
There’s also RAW capture for the camera, a Bokeh mode and a slow motion mode, even though it’s not Super Slow Motion. We’ll be back with a full review pretty soon. In the meantime you can get the phone from here.
