The renowned tipster of upcoming smartphone launches, Evan Blass, yesterday took to his Twitter account to post an image showing off what could be the next flagship from OnePlus.
This tweet was in response to a poll where Blass asked his followers if they wanted him to show the image of the next device from OnePlus. 80 percent of the total 5,145 voters responded ‘Yes’ at the time of writing prompting him to post the image in response. It is likely that the upcoming device from the company will be OnePlus 6 considering the scheme that the company has followed so far.
According to the image that Blass posted, the bottom of the device packs a 3.5-mm headphone jack, reversible Type-C USB port and a hint of the antenna bad on the bottom right side of the device. The back of the device comes with a ‘Designed by OnePlus’ branding. The image also shows what appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device below the camera and the LED Flash unit. The back also comes with what appears to be a ‘woodgrain’ texture.

This design matches the design that we saw last month in terms of the shape and the placement of the fingerprint reader on the back of the device. However, the device did not have a texture back then. It may be possible that OnePlus will offer different textured backs, something that can easily be done by d-brand or what Motorola does with its Style Mod.
OnePlus has not announced any details, so it is possible that this is the device or that this may be one of the possible variants of the device. As previously reported, OnePlus 6 may feature a 6.28-inch Full HD AMOLED display with 2280x1080 pixel resolution. It is also likely to come with Snapdragon 845 SoC with CPU clocked at 2.7 GHz.
It will also support Cat.16 LTE for Gigabit speeds as compared to the Cat.12 which was seen on the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. The OnePlus 6 is also touted to have Qualcomm X50 modem with Gigabit LTE support,
