Design, specs, price, and everything we know so far

While OnePlus has outgrown its roots of aggressively-priced phones, it still offers an unbeatable value-for-money that easily surpasses the multiple security-related scandals which surround the company on a regular basis. With each and every year, OnePlus has become more and more capable and its products have recently really outdid themselves – save for a few issues and shortcomings in-between, OnePlus has been mostly killing it in the affordable super-flagship segment.


At this point, we haven’t heard anything  not so much is know about the OnePlus 6 but thanks to a recently leaked set of surprisingly-wholesome images, we can draw out a lot of conclusions and assumptions about that one. Then again, the device has a peculiar model number (P7819), which could mean it’s merely a prototype.

Glass is in

Judging from the leaked images, OnePlus could be preparing a paradigm shift and forego the predominantly-metal design it has been utilizing for the past 2 years. While the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, and 5T all had that all-metal body going on for them, OnePlus could be going the same way as many of its rivals and grace the OnePlus 6 with what seems to be a curved glass back with metal frame on the sides. 
That’s pretty much what Samsung, Apple, and many others have recently done in the ultimate quest of fleshing out the most premium phone out there. OnePlus going full glass is still a wild rumor at this point, but it makes a lot of sense: while its flagships have been sufficiently powerful and capable, they have generally lacked any pizazz. 

Don’t get us wrong, that’s not a bad thing, but seeing OnePlus strives tooth and nail to become mainstream, it would make a lot of sense for it to spice up the design of its phones with a brittle, yet snazzy glass exterior.

Death to the bezel

Just as one might expect from a flagship phone that is to launch in 2018, a bezelless design will likely be utilized. The OnePlus 5T was already a pretty efficient device when it came to screen-to-body size ratio, but the leaked images of the OnePlus 6 tells an even more impressive tale. We will be quite impressed with OnePlus if it really slims down the bezels of its next flagship phone to an extent similar to the one in the initially leaked image.

Notch you too!

Aside from the supposedly-glass back, the OnePlus 6 seems like it would sport another rather controversial design feature – an iPhone X-like notch at the front. It is housing the front camera and the earpiece as there’s simply not anywhere else to put these vital hardware elements due to the super-slim bezels. Hate it or love it, the notch is a fad that’s sticking around for now. Yet, if done correctly, for example by teaming it up with an OLED display, it is not that much of a nuisance. 

Further down the line, the leaked OnePlus device features a slightly-protruding dual camera that looks quite similar to the setups we’ve seen on the OnePlus 5 and the 5T. Just beneath them one could make out a concave fingerprint sensor that looks like it’s well-separated from the surrounding glass and would be easy to locate without much fumbling. 

While we can’t really make out the signature OnePlus mute switch on the side, it’s unlikely that it will get axed down. After all, it’s one of the most useful features of OnePlus’ phones and doesn’t really have an analogue on the Android market. 

It also seems that one of the devices that is expected to donate its general design to the OnePlus 6, the Oppo R15, has been recently teased sporting a notch. Normally, Oppo’s flagships share a ton of similarities with OnePlus’ phones as both companies are owned by the same conglomerate – BBK Electronics – and regularly collaborate on their devices.

Wireless charging

The glass back that could grace the OnePlus 6 hints that the phone could potentially come with wireless charging on deck. Now that Apple has embraced this technology, it’s cool once again and Android manufacturers are quite possibly way more open to employing it in comparison with previous years. Will the OnePlus 6 have this? Probably.


As we mentioned, the OnePlus 6 will most certainly come along with a bezelless 18:9 display similar to the one on the OnePlus 5T. We also mentioned the notch which should be considered a necessary evil that needs to be employed so that the front-facing camera, earpiece, and proximity sensors have somwhere to go.

No beating around the bush: display specifics are unknown at this point and will likely remain this way for quite some time. 

Display specifics

Yet, we can speculate that the company will continue to use those nifty Samsung-made Optic AMOLED displays it’s been employing on its devices for quite a while. For years on end, OnePlus hasn’t ventured past Full HD resolution for its displays and we don’t think the company will employ a sharper Quad HD panel as the cons likely slightly outweigh the pros. What we do hope is that OnePlus continues to improve its color calibration methods and still offer its users a choice between an accurate sRGB color mode and a more punchier and vivid one for all those who crave for more oomph.

In-screen fingerprint scanner

Oh, and talking about displays, a certain rumor exists that says OnePlus could be one of the first manufacturers to use a fingerprint scanner embedded into the display. Of course, this is contradicting with the leaked image which clearly shows a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner, and it’s clear as a day no one needs two of these on a phone. We’ve seen prototypes with other devices with fingerprint scanners on board, the freshest one being the conceptual Vivo X20 Plus that was showcased at MWC 2018. Given that OnePlus is using OLED displays, which are a prerequisite for certain in-display fingerprint scanning techs to work, this rumor is not at all unsubstantiated. Yet, we wouldn’t put our money on that.


No second opinion – once you go dual-cam, there’s no going back. The OnePlus 6 will certainly boast a dual camera, just like its predecessors. Dual cameras come in all shapes and sizes, but the difference between the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T was much more drastic than meets the eye. While the older device had a dual setup that paired a regular camera and another one with a longer focal length, the OnePlus 5T ditched the longer lens for a secondary one that had a wider aperture and aimed to fire up in in low-light scenarios.

Why are we telling you this? Just to illustrate the point that when it comes to cameras, OnePlus is very open to experimentation and there’s no telling if the OnePlus 6 will retain the wide-aperture secondary camera or bring back an optical zoom one again. We’d argue that the overall camera performance of the OnePlus 5 was a bit more fleshed-out than the OnePlus 5T the secondary camera of which only works as intended in specific scenarios and doesn’t improve things as much as expected.


We are happy to report that OnePlus rarely skimp it on the hardware side. You always get the latest top Qualcomm chipset in the company’s flagship phone, and paired with the lightweight interface, the device usually flies and feels snappier than its contemporary rivals. 

That’s why we are almost certain OnePlus would go with the latest Qualcomm chip on the block, the Snapdragon 845, which has already been slated to appear in a trove of existing and upcoming Android top dogs. The chip introduces a welcome performance boost over the Snapdragon 835 that powered both the OnePlus 5 and 5T.


With the OnePlus 5T scoring juicy 8GB of RAM in its top version, it’s normal to expect a similar variation of the OnePlus 6 to also have that amount of multitasking prowess available at user’s fingertips. Again, a 6GB RAM version of the device will likely be available in the base version of the device. While having 8GB of RAM will mostly serve a bragging service for many, it’s nice to see OnePlus leading many of its rivals with that much memory available. 

Storage-wise, OnePlus will likely continue to offer 64 and 128GB of storage versions of its next phone, though we wouldn’t be surprised if its decides to jump the gun and go for 256 gigs of the stuff, just like the most spec’d out version of the recently-released Galaxy S9/S9+.

As far as one of the most important aspects of a modern phone – its battery – we have no clue what OnePlus is prepping. A sub-3,500mAh unit is probably a safe bet, but we are super-open to surprises.

Release date and price

Now, if OnePlus’ latest releases tell us anything, it’s that the company has adopted a 6-month release cycle of its devices – a flagship in late May/early June followed by an improved version of the same device in late October/early November. There’s no reason to believe the OnePlus 6 won’t adhere to the same time windows. This means that we should expect more and more rumors and leaks surrounding OnePlus’ next phone in the coming months leading to its announcement in late Spring. 

In terms of pricing, OnePlus has slowly increased prices with each and every of its products over the years, starting with the super-affordable $299 OnePlus One (16GB version) and lately going as high as $599 for the 8GB/128GB OnePlus 5T. Generally, we can point out a gradual $30 to $50 price hike between the various OnePlus phone generations. Here’s a neat table to summarize this:

Judging from the trends showcased in the table above, we’d prophesize that the OnePlus 6 will start in the ~$560 price window for the base version and could go as high as ~$620 for the top-tier version, if such one exists. Of course, take this with a grain of salt, but OnePlus is surprisingly punctual and predictable with its pricings.

Nokia 7 Plus specs leaked out

Finnish company HMD Global is supposed to bring quite a few nice surprises at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade fair. Aside from the new Nokia-branded flagship, an incredibly powerful mid-range smartphone could be unveiled as well – the improved version of the Nokia 7.

Since Nokia 7 is exclusive to China, the new model that’s expected to go global soon after unveil is a nice addition to HMD’s portfolio of Android smartphones. We’ve been reporting before about the Nokia 7 Plus, but this is the first time we have almost complete details about its specs.

Apparently, the Nokia 7 Plus is likely to be a flagship killer thanks to its dual-lens (12MP+13MP) Zeiss rear camera and 4GB RAM/64GB ROM memory amount. The only downside is that it comes with a Snapdragon 660 processor, but that’s perfectly normal for a mid-range handset.

The list of leaked specs includes other details like 16-megapixel Zeiss front camera with Tetracell technology, a huge 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass coating, as well as Android 8.0 Oreo and USB Type C port (with quick charging).

There’s one thing to note though, the information comes from just one source in China, so it’s impossible to vouch for its accuracy. Hopefully, we’ll learn more about the Nokia 7 Plus and what’s supposed to offer in terms of hardware in the coming weeks.

New Galaxy S9 specs emerge

Some time early next year, Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy S9, its latest flagship. The follow-up to the impressive Galaxy S8 is expected to be more of an incremental upgrade than a revolutionary one, but it will still get some sweet new features. We’ve heard rumors about the phone’s specs, and the latest one continues to complete the picture of what exactly the Galaxy S9 will feature.

In a spec breakdown published by Tencent Digital News, we see some of the major upgrades the S9 will get. The text is in a different language, but two main specs can be made out: battery size and quick charging capacity. The Galaxy S9 will reportedly come with a 3,200mAh battery, a nice increase from the S8’s 3,000mAh battery. Samsung went ultra conservative with the S8 battery after the Note 7 fiasco, so it’s nice of to see a small bump.

By featuring Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0, the Galaxy S9 will be able to take advantage of 12W wireless charging. That will be the fastest wireless charging capacity. The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus max out at 7W wireless charging.

Aside from that, the Galaxy S9 is expected to retain a similar design as the S8, including the Infinity Display, single (vertical) camera set up, and metal and glass body.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S9 in February.

design, specs, price, and everything else we know so far

After releasing its P10 and P10 Plus flagships in the early months of this year, Chinese phone maker Huawei is preparing to end 2017 with a bang. In case you haven’t heard, this “bang” will come in the form of Huawei’s Mate 10 series.
So, what makes the Mate lineup special? Well, the “go big or go home” philosophy that the company adopts when designing and manufacturing these phones. The presently available Mate 9 can be seen as a perfect example of this approach – the large phablet packs a 5.9-inch screen, powerful hardware, a Leica-branded dual main camera, and a massive 4,000 mAh battery, all encompassed in a sleek metal frame. 

Will Huawei manage to outdo itself and produce its finest handsets to date? Currently, no one knows, but there’s a good amount of official info, teasers, and saucy rumors that suggest just that. As such, let’s summarize everything we know about the Mate 10 series and see if it has the potential to be the new jewel in Huawei’s mobile crown. 

Figuring out which is which

Before we kick things off, let’s clear something up to avoid any misconceptions. The Mate 10 lineup is a congregation of several different smartphones. So far, we can confirm the existence of at least four distinct variants – a budget-oriented Mate 10 Lite (also known as Maimang 6), a regular Mate 10, a flagship-level Mate 10 Pro, and even a deluxe Mate 10 Porsche Design.

In this rumor review, we will concentrate exclusively on the Mate 10 Pro, as the flagship will most likely end up as the most popular model of the bunch. With that out of the way, let’s proceed. 

Huawei will be jumping on the all-screen bandwagon with the Mate 10 Pro, similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2LG G6Samsung Galaxy S8, and the Essential Phone. This was initially confirmed by Huawei CEO Richard Yu, who said that the phone will employ a “full-screen” display. It’s also worth noting that the company filed for a trademark on “EntireView”, which could end up as the official name for the panel. 

When October came around, various images of the device leaked online, the most impressive of which was a supposed official render shared by Evan Blass. As you can see, the bezels of the Mate 10 Pro are indeed almost non-existent. Naturally, this means that the front home button is eliminated, with the only two physical keys (power button and volume rocker from the looks of it) being situated on the right side of the handset. 

Meanwhile, the pleasantly curved back side of the Pro hosts the Leica-branded main dual camera which is surrounded by a patterned strip, making the design a two-tone one. The fingerprint scanner is situated right below the main shooter. This specific render might give you the impression that the back plate is made out of metal, but this might not actually be the case. 

This set of in-hand shots which recently emerged on Chinese social media Weibo might actually reveal a glossier truth. Here, the back panels appear to be made out of glass. Last year’s Mate 9 series featured metal backs, so a change to glass could signalize the inclusion of a wireless charging feature.

The “full-screen” display on the Mate 10 is rumored to have a 5.99-inch diagonal. It is understood that JDI Display will be the manufacturer supplying the panels. 

The screen is said to boast a Quad HD (1440 x 2880 pixels) resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9, which could end up being its main differentiating characteristic from the regular Mate 10.


Okay, let’s get to the juicy part. The Mate 10 has been confirmed to be the first phone to feature Huawei’s in-house Kirin 970 chip that will be built on a 10nm process. For comparison, the Kirin 960 found on the Huawei P10 uses a 16nm manufacturing technology. 

The Snapdragon 835 which powers flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and OnePlus 5 is also produced on a 10nm process, although Qualcomm platforms have a tendency to outperform their Kirin counterparts. Still, the performance and energy efficiency of the 970 should be superior to anything we’ve seen on a Huawei phone to date.

As for the exact specs, here’s what you can expect:

  • 8-core (4x Cortex A73 and 4x Cortex A53) configuration
  • Clock speed of up to 2.8 GHz
  • 64-bit architecture
  • 12-core GPU
  • LPDDR4 RAM at 1866mHz
  • Dual SIM LTE

What’s more interesting is that the Kirin 970 will have a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit), which will be solely dedicated to handling AI tasks. This is why the manufacturer is advertising the device as an “intelligent machine” rather than just a smartphone. Huawei’s vision of the future involves the deep integration of AI in every smartphone, and not only on a software level.

The Mate 10 Pro is said to be launched in four configurations: 6GB RAM/64GB storage, 6GB RAM/128GB storage, 6GB RAM/256GB storage, and 8GB RAM/256GB storage.


Considering the estimated release date (that we’ve covered below), we are hopeful that the Mate 10 will ship with Android O out of the box. Aside from that, it will most definitely come with a newer version of Huawei’s own EMUI software. It’s a relatively feature-rich interface that will suit power users, though it can definitely be an overwhelming one for the majority of regular consumers.


The Mate 9’s Leica-branded dual-camera composition is adequate, but it didn’t exactly impress us as much as the one on the P10. Huawei has vowed that the Mate 10 will take great photos and will be able to compete with Samsung and Apple’s finest handsets, so we’re really excited to put it to the test. 

If this official teaser from Huawei Mobile Germany is anything to go by, the composition will include a 12 MP color sensor and a 20 MP monochrome sensor, much like the Mate 9. However, this time around, it is rumored that the shooter has been upgraded with a f/1.6 aperture for better low light performance.

As for the selfie cam, there were speculations that it would employ two sensors as well, but this was sort of disproved by the render images which popped up at a later point. We suspect that Huawei will stick to the 8 MP shooter found on the P10. 


As mentioned in the intro, the Huawei Mate 9 packs a sizeable 4,000 mAh battery that managed to clock in at the impressive 12 hours and 14 minutes in our custom battery benchmark. 

The company recently released a teaser which pretty much confirmed that the power cell on the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will be of the same capacity. There might not be an improvement here, but the Kirin 970 SoC will surely be more energy efficient, leading to an increase in overall performance.

Price and release date

In any case, we’re less than 2 weeks away from filling all the blanks, as Huawei confirmed that it will announce the Mate 10 on October 16 in Munich, Germany. This, in theory, should mean that it will be available for purchase before the holiday season kicks in.

As for the price, reliable tipster Roland Quandt claimed that the Huawei Mate 10 Pro has been spotted on Eastern European online stores with an alleged price tag of €930 ($1090). 

US MSRP’s are almost always lower than those in Europe, but if this information turns out to be correct, the Mate 10 Pro will face stiff competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone X.

A Sony Xperia XZ1 unit poses for the camera, shows off its specs

Sony’s 2017 pre-IFA show is fast approaching, so it’s about time we finally started seeing some more leaks of the devices the company will be showing off. And as luck would have it, less than a day after we saw schematics-based renders of the flagship Xperia XZ1, we’re getting a second look at the phone, this time in real-life photos.

And apart from the curious-looking antenna lines and the NFC logo placement, everything else seems to be pretty much in order. So, just like the previous leak showed, Sony has once again placed its bets on the classic OmniBalance design language, to the point where the device’s front looks nearly identical to the Xperia XZ, XZs, and XZ Premium.

Seeing as the entire display is obscured by a text-heavy sticker, it’s not made immediately clear whether the device in the picture is the real deal or just a dummy display unit. The good news, however, is that this sticker shows us a large amount of info about the device’s specs — and they sure seem to match with the ones we’ve heard so far.

So expect the XZ1 to come with a Snapdragon 835 chipset with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, a 5.2-inch, HDR-capable display (old rumors say it’ll be a Full HD panel), and a 19 MP MotionEye camera capable of 960 fps video recording. Alongside those, the XZ1 will also have a 13 MP front camera, front-facing stereo speakers, and either an IP68 or IP65 dust- and water-resistance rating.

The Xperia XZ1 will be announced later this month, at Sony’s August 31 event just a day before the official start of this year’s IFA expo. Alongside it, we’re expecting to see two other devices: a smaller variant of the XZ1 named Xperia XZ1 Compact, and a mid-ranger going by the name Xperia X1.

First Huawei Mate 10 renders leaked out along with some specs

The first renders of what appears to be Huawei’s next flagship, the Mate 10, have just arrived and they’re looking pretty darn good. Huawei Mate 10 will be a bezel-less phablet with a massive 6.1-inch display with Quad HD resolution.

The back side reveals a dual-camera setup featuring Leica lens, dual LED flash and OIS (optical image stabilization). The fingerprint sensor is positioned below the primary camera since the phone doesn’t come with a Home button on the front side, and Huawei hasn’t been able to put it under the display.

Unfortunately, the top side of the phone isn’t shown in these pictures, so it’s impossible to say whether or not the Mate 10 comes with a 3.5mm audio jack port, but there’s definitely a USB Type-C port on the bottom side, along with two speakers.

Under the hood, Huawei Mate 10 is said to pack a powerful Kirin 970 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. The phablet will be powered by a 4,000+ mAh battery and will run Android Nougat right out of the box.

Price-wise, Huawei’s upcoming top-tier smartphone is rumored to cost more than $1,000, which is a bit ridiculous, so we’re not sure if we should take the information seriously.
