During its event for the OnePlus 6, OnePlus unveiled a new set of earbuds called the Bullets Wireless.

The real star of the show, of course, is the new OnePlus 6. Is it enough of a jump for you? Here's what completes the powerful OnePlus 6, all for just $529. They go on sale June 5 priced at $69. According to reports, OnePlus has plans to integrate advanced face recognition technology on the OnePlus 6. The bottom features the USB Type-C port, speakers, and a headphone jack. As with all things OnePlus, the device was launched amidst a considerable amount of fanfare.

The OnePlus 6 officially goes on sale worldwide on May 22 although you can scoop it up a day early at select pop-up stores. The phone is water-resistant too, and offers the custom OnePlus fast-charging technology as usual - you can get a day's power in half an hour of charging, OnePlus says. As disclosed by recent leaks the device for the first time will be made available in a Glass finish variant. That's usually one of the perks of a glass back.

The back of the phone is where most of the aesthetic differences are visible. The biggest change in the display is the inclusion of a notch. It does help in this regard.

The OnePlus6 will be one of the first Android flagship devices to support the just-announced codename Andoird P operating system, out of the box. In most regards it's an incremental update to the barely six-months-old OnePlus 5T, yet it's still recognisable as something new. We will know the exact price after the official launch. That's going to be a big perk from now until August.

Last year, despite the buildup for the OnePlus collaboration with world-renowned camera rating agency DxOMark, OnePlus 5T failed to live up to the hype.

OnePlus 6 will be powered by Android Oreo-based OxygenOS with Snapdragon 845 CPU, Qualcomm's latest and most powerful processor to date. That'll be important going forward, more so than it is now. However, if you want to jump up to 8GB of RAM, you will also get 256GB of storage. Both lenses sport an aperture of f/1.7 along with phase detection autofocus.

Video capture is similarly uncompromising, allowing users to capture at up to 480 frames per second at 720p resolution for a whole minute, retroactively choosing specific moments to edit into slow motion via its new video editor, alongside cropping, adding filters and even music. You can set it to 240fps at 1080p, but that kind of defeats the goal. As for the camera, the OnePlus 6 comes with dual rear cameras including 16MP (Sony IMX519) +20MP (Sony IM376K sensor) setup like before. OnePlus 6 runs on a 3300mAh battery with the support of Dash Charging. Unlike the OnePlus smartphones, however, the fast charging circuit is embedded into the earphones, so you don't need to use the proprietary OnePlus charging brick to take advantage of fast charging. That's also not possible on the metal OnePlus 5T. Wireless charging, however, isn't in the cards. Other variants might include 6GB RAM, 64GB storage or 128GB storage.

Or, you can get 128GB of storage and more RAM for only $579. However, from what we hear of the specs and features, the slightly increased price seems more than fair.

The company improved every aspect over the OnePlus 5T from 2017, aside from maybe the size of the battery. You'll be overjoyed by the technical data and targeted price.

Like other slow-motion options, this mode lets you bring time to a halt for a bit to bring out details you can't see with the naked eye.
