ONEPLUS 6 ANNOUNCED WITH A GLASS BACK AND A NOTCHED 6.3-INCH DISPLAY

A little earlier than its usual June refresh window, OnePlus has revealed its new flagship Android device today, the OnePlus 6. The most controversial aspect of the new design, the notch at the top of the 6.3-inch 19:9 OLED display, has already been the subject of a preemptive rationalization from the company, and fan demands have been answered with the added option to conceal the notch by putting a black bar on the screen around it.

Though beloved by few, the notched design does have a significant upside in helping OnePlus fit a lot more screen into basically the same dimensions as its previous OnePlus 5T and 5 models. The OnePlus 6 is a little smaller than my 6-inch Google Pixel 2 XL, but it offers more vertical screen space and makes the Pixel’s bezels feel crude and chunky by comparison. It’s not that the 6 lacks bezels; they just happen to be minimal and nicely designed. OnePlus’ interface is well-tailored to the notch, and the company has tested the top 1,000 Play Store apps to ensure they play nicely with it. Whether or not the notch is to your liking, you can’t accuse OnePlus of moving to it without sufficient forethought.

The other big change with the OnePlus 6 is the introduction of a new glass back, replacing the unibody aluminum case that’s been the norm for OnePlus for a number of years. The company’s press release says that this is “the first in OnePlus’ line of flagships to feature an all-glass design,” suggesting that the metal backs of the past are going to stay in the past. With this alteration, OnePlus joins the vast majority of smartphone manufacturers — companies like Apple, Samsung, Sony, Nokia, LG, and Huawei — in having glass on both the front and the back of its flagship device. I’ve been told by a number of these companies that the general trend has been driven by the requirements of faster and more advanced LTE, making it increasingly difficult to produce a phone with a metal back.

Although the OnePlus 6, replete with a notch and a glass back, now blends into the mass of Android phones out there, it does stand out with a number of its own unique strengths.

Firstly, the software is clean, thoughtfully designed, and unfailingly fast. The OnePlus 6 was among the first Android phones to support the Android P beta, even before it was officially announced. OnePlus says that it’s committed to heeding and responding to its fans’ wishes, and its eagerness to deliver updates as soon as possible is a testament to that.

Feast your eyes on the OnePlus 6 Avengers edition

You can be a pretend Avenger with this special edition OnePlus 6.

It looks like OnePlus went all out designing the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6. Unlike its Star Wars-branded older sibling, it got a lot more than a wallpaper and a barely visible logo on the back — it features a Kevlar pattern under its back cover and a color scheme that works well with the golden Avengers emblem, OnePlus logo and mute button. The “Avengers Alliance” package also comes with a phone case in the shape of Iron Man’s helmet, and a gold Avengers medallion in a box embossed with the team’s recognizable “A” insignia.
The Rs. 44,999 limited edition package will set you back around Rs. 7,000 more than the basic OnePlus 6, according to the phonemaker’s announcement at an event in Beijing. Take note that the phone itself doesn’t have any extra features, so you might be better off with an ordinary OnePlus if you’re not a Marvel fan. Besides, it might be tough to get your hands on one anyway: the limited edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T was only released in India. Since the company’s Indian division was responsible for leaking a poster of the Marvel collab, the package will most likely be released in the region, as well. However, the company has yet to reveal where and when the phone will be available.

OnePlus’ Bullets Wireless headphones don’t tangle and can fast-charge

Not ‘truly’ wireless earbuds, but they look great & it costs around – Rs. 4,599 (approx)

oneplus-bullets-wireless-2.jpg

OnePlus is accompanying its new phone launch today by also releasing its first pair of wireless headphones, called the Bullets Wireless. Yes, they support USB-C fast charging, are Google Assistant-integrated, weather-resistant, and use the AptX codec for better Bluetooth audio quality, but they’re not the “truly wireless” in-ear wireless buds you might’ve been expecting.

Regardless, they have specs that might make them great wireless headphones. On paper, OnePlus claims you can get five hours of usage from ten minutes of charging, or top it off for eight hours of battery.

The buds themselves are milled from aluminum, but more importantly, OnePlus ensured you can magnetically snap them to each other to avoid tangles.

Also, if you have a OnePlus 5 / 5T or 6, clipping the Bullets Wireless together will pause music, while unclipping will resume; an update is in the works to add phone call support.

OnePlus’ marketing jargon for Bullets Wireless includes the term “energy tubes”. Essentially, they reduce reverberations within the wires, better isolating and stabilizing sounds. Their intended outcome is to produce clearer, richer audio
