It’s Gorilla Glass 5 front and back, with the toughened insurance ideally meaning it won’t effortlessly crush – yet there’s no making tracks in an opposite direction from the way that metal doesn’t crush. For the individuals who are more clumsy fortunately OnePlus gives a straightforward silicon cover in the container on the off chance that you feel the handset needs some additional insurance and grasp.
This isn’t the first run through OnePlus has used a glass body on a gadget, with the OnePlus X likewise having the excellent complete, yet this is the company’s first ‘lead’ handset to get the treatment.
OnePlus cases that it’s enhanced the water protection on the OnePlus 6 over its forerunners, however the telephone doesn’t convey an IP rating to ensure its survival when completely submerged in water.
Or maybe, OnePlus says its gave ordinary, true insurance for more probable situations, for example, being gotten in a rain shower or accidently dropping your telephone into water and rapidly hauling it out. Submerge this telephone at your own hazard.

At 177g it’s additionally heavier than the 5T, which tipped the scales at 163g. Holding the two telephones in either hand the OnePlus 6 feels marginally weightier, however there’s very little in it.
The power/bolt key sits on the privilege of the handset, or more you’ll locate OnePlus’ mainstream ready slider, enabling you to effectively switch between noiseless, vibrate and noisy modes.
This has customarily been on the left of the handset, however OnePlus has chosen to switch it with the SIM plate on the 6 after criticism from its locale about the slider being hard to get to when utilizing flip-style covers.
The SIM plate has space for two nanoSIMs, and the two openings take into account a 4G association, which implies you can profit by greatest information speeds on two seperate systems.
On the back you’ll discover the unique finger impression scanner beneath the distending double camera stack; in any case you’ll see this has been decreased in measure.
Instead of a circle, OnePlus has decided on a littler, oval-formed scanner here. We’re told there are a couple of purposes behind this, however the one OnePlus was eager to let us know was that somebody on the group commented that having a hover underneath the camera knock resembled a shout stamp.
It’s as yet conceivable that we could see more hues land for the OnePlus 6 later on, however from the beginning it’ll be accessible in Mirror Black and Midnight Black, with the restricted version Silk White arriving not long after.

The Midnight Black OnePlus 6 has a more matte complete, because of the layer underneath the glass being punctured with a great many gaps to make a profound sheen. This is the main shading choice for the best end 8GB/256GB arrangement.

- OnePlus’ greatest ever display at 6.28 inches
- Full HD, Full Optic AMOLED board with 19:9 angle proportion
- 84% screen-to-body proportion thanks to a limited extent to score
- The OnePlus 6 display is one of the huge new highlights on the telephone. Actually, it’s the greatest display the firm has ever crushed into a telephone, with the 6.28-inch Full Optic AMOLED board obscuring the 6.1-inch offering found on the 5T.
OnePlus has kept on supporting the now-prevalent 19:9 angle proportion as well, giving you a taller display that presents more on screen when you’re looking over records, for example, your Twitter channel.
While the display might be greater, the determination remains the same at ‘simply’ Full HD. That is 2280 x 1080 to be correct, which guarantees it keeps the 402 pixels-per-inch thickness of past OnePlus leaders.
In any case, in this present reality where QHD is quick turning into the standard at the best end of the versatile market, the screen determination on the OnePlus 6 is a key region where the firm has hoped to compromise trying to minimize expenses.
With the lessening in bezel above and underneath the screen the OnePlus 6 additionally gloats a 84% screen-to-body proportion that will probably please aficionados of through and through display land. However this has included some major disadvantages: the consideration of a troublesome ‘score’ at the highest point of the screen.
It’s littler than the score on the iPhone X, however bigger than the camera-sized cut-out of the Essential Phone, fixing up pretty intimately with the execution on the Huawei P20.
OnePlus discloses to us that the indent wasn’t just included as a ‘me as well’ element however. A representative for the firm told TechRadar “[OnePlus] completely acknowledges the pattern for decreasing bezels and expanding screen-to-body proportion. [We] contemplated over the choice [to incorporate the notch].
“We need to convey the innovation that right now works the best and we must make sure of the innovation we put into our gadgets, as we just make one [device] at once.
“[The notch] works the best right now. Eventually it’s not about the score, it’s about the screen.”
Regardless of whether you’re for or against the indent it fills a helpful need on the OnePlus 6, lodging the forward looking camera, earpiece, LED warning light and surrounding light sensor.
For the individuals who truly don’t care for the score slant, you can viably ‘shroud’ it on the OnePlus 6 by turning the screen either side of it dark to make one nonstop bar, in spite of the fact that the component empowering you to do as such will arrive by means of a product refresh after dispatch.
The decision is yours at that point, however there is something fairly fulfilling about observing your backdrop wrap around either the side of the score. Or on the other hand perhaps that is simply us.
Slide the OnePlus 6 out of its bundling and you’ll see that it accompanies an industrial facility fitted screen defender, which is constantly pleasant, in spite of the fact that it detracts marginally from the general look of the telephone, and additionally being somewhat of a clean and unique mark magnet.
It’s sufficiently simple to evacuate, and doing as such in a flash influences the OnePlus 6 to look more premium, yet you’re at that point presenting the display to potential scratches and scrapes, so don’t quickly whip it off when you get it out the crate.
