OnePlus has just put out a teaser for the OnePlus 6, confirming earlier rumours of an early launch. It kind of makes sense since OnePlus is trying to implement some of the latest hardware and technologies and they don't always come cheap, so it's mostly about the trade-offs the company is willing to make to offer consumers a true "flagship killer". Now the smartphone has also received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA). In addition to the name, the WiFi certification listing mentions that the OnePlus 6 will be running on Android Oreo 8.1.0 out of the box with Oxygen OS 5.1.0 skin on top. The listing carries the certification ID WFA74031 and the date of certification being 2nd March 2018.

The OnePlus 6 purportedly scored an overall score of 276,510 - a significant step-up from the previous flagship from the company, OnePlus 5T, which scored 212,558. So, the OnePlus 6 128GB variant will retail at 3799 Yuan ($602) while the 256GB variant will be costlier at 4399 Yuan ($697).

Recently, OnePlus confirmed that it will bring the top-notch similar to Apple iPhone X in its next flagship device. However, we already know that OnePlus will be announcing the OnePlus 6 as early as June and will feature the infamous notch as found on the iPhone X. So until we get an official confirmation, we are a little skeptical about the latest leak. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, with an option for either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB internal storage.

- A leaked image posted by tipster Evan Blass confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will retain the headphone jack. The other lens was tipped as 20-megapixels large with f/1.7 and phase detection autofocus for the whole shebang.

OnePlus 6 is expected to pack the most high-end specs for a smartphone yet. The phone will be backed by a 3,450mAh battery which is expected to boast Dash Charge technology.

This device was rumored to cost around $750 - but that's one of the thinnest rumors we've got in the mix today.
