New flagship OnePlus phone will be most expensive yet

In the near future the OnePlus 6 is set to launch, with a teaser trailer emerging last week to get potential buyers excited about what is in store. The only bit of bad news is that it will be costlier than its predecessors, according to Tech Radar.

There are a host of rumours about the hardware features of the OnePlus 6, including claims that it will pack in up to 8GB of RAM alongside the cutting edge Snapdragon 845 chipset designed by Qualcomm.

One known factor is that the phone’s screen will cover the majority of its front surface, following in the footsteps of the iPhone X.

It will also retain a 3.5mm headphone socket, outdoing rival devices from Apple and Samsung by holding onto this much loved port.

The price is still up in the air, but the suggestion is that the most affordable version will cost the best part of £400. The higher capacity models will push beyond £500, so while it will be half the price of the iPhone X it will still cost more than earlier OnePlus devices that have aimed to be as competitive as possible in this arena.
