OnePlus 6 flagship to release in Q2 2018 with Snapdragon 845 SoC

OnePlus Will Start Talking to US Carriers, Confirms that Next OnePlus Phone will Launch in Q2

It's less than two months since OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T, and they are already on track to launch their next flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6 in June 2018. CEO, Pete Lau, said that the company may stop selling exclusively through its website in favour of using local networks to distribute the handsets as other manufacturers do. Lau said the company may not follow tradition and may not launch a second phone in 2018. The device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, which is the latest flagship SoC from Qualcomm. However Lau did say "A lot of our users don't know about the time and resources spent on a phone". OnePlus 5T was one of the favourite smartphones of 2017, thanks to its killer combination of top-notch features and specifications in a reasonably priced package.

With a USA carrier deal being a major possibility for OnePlus in the near future, Lau teased that they will be releasing a brand new phone in a few months. Since this is still a speculation, we'll have to wait for any kind of official confirmation. However, if OnePlus plans to let go of the mid-year update cycle, the company will have to build OnePlus 6 in a way that it stays relevant throughout the year. The company has not yet confirmed the name of the upcoming smartphone, but going by the trend we expect it to be called as OnePlus 6.

Support from US carriers has been an issue for Chinese smartphone brands.

OnePlus already sells its devices on wireless carriers in other countries (such as O2 in the United Kingdom), but following the recent Huawei situation, OnePlus could be faced with a similar uphill battle.

After months of being rumored, Huawei hot deal with USA carriers, Verizon and AT&T eventually fell through.

In addition, Lau said the handset would be based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset saying "there's no other choice" than Qualcomm hardware.
