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

With two highly successful phones launched in 2017, OnePlus is looking to broaden its reach in 2018.

Recently, in an interview with CNET, Pete Lau - the CEO of OnePlus said that they are going to start talking with United States carriers to launch their next device in partnership. Making a deal with one or more USA carriers will give OnePlus access to millions of potential new customers.

Talking about the Snapdragon 845 for the rumored OnePlus 6, Lau claimed that the company chose it since there was no other choice. It stated that OnePlus would be debuting the OnePlus 6 smartphone in June this year. This was expected news as OnePlus users Qualcomm's flagship chip every year on their smartphones, and that's not going to change for a while. Well, owing to popular demand, the Face Unlock feature has been rolled out to the OnePlus 5 through OxygenOS Open Beta 3 update, and now, it has been confirmed for OnePlus 3 and 3T as well.

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. It has also been frequenting headlines as the company has launched different variants of the device including one special Star Wars Edition and a recent Lava Red edition. He said the phone would launch late in Q2, which would place the release date in June. He says, "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment".

Distinguishable from its lesser-powered brethren, you'll spot a wider grille, deeper side skirts and dual exhausts. SYNC with AppLinkTM, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard.

Striking a deal with US carriers would be a big step for OnePlus, which has only sold its devices directly to customers.

In the four years since the launch of the OnePlus One, OnePlus's first smartphone, the startup's managed to amass a following.

Lastly, Lau expressed interest in partnering with U.S. carrier networks to bring the OnePlus flagships to consumers in the States via network contracts. If they can strike a deal with a major partner, that could propel the OnePlus brand beyond tech enthusiasts.
