OnePlus' Bullets Wireless headphones are here to take on Google's Pixel Buds

OnePlus' Bullets Wireless headphones are here to take on Google's Pixel Buds

The Bullets Wireless headphones will work with the OnePlus 6 as well as the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. It's also waterproof, although we don't have an exact IP rating just yet. Snap them together, and they're off; unsnap them, and they switch on, it's that simple. OnePlus opted for a 6.28-inch OLED panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD+ (2280×1080) resolution. You won't be able to order them straight away, however, as OnePlus has pushed availability back to the 6th of June.

OnePlus is launching its latest phone unlocked, as usual, so you can use it with any GSM carrier you prefer thanks to support for 40 bands across Europe and the Americas. The company touts it made Android more precise and better suited to handle the display cutout, while it also moved the clock to the left of the notch and notifications to the right.

True enough to the rumours, the flagship does come with either a 6GB or 8GB of RAM accompanying the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, making it one of the Android powerhouses of this year.

In other words, the price of OnePlus's flagship may have gone up, but the company's focus on offering premium features for midrange prices remains. Additionally, there's Bluetooth 5, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and NFC.

Battery and OS OnePlus 6 comes with the same battery capacity of 3,300mAh as seen on the 5T. Face Unlock is available as an alternative to using a lock-screen PIN or the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Thankfully for those who love their wired audio, OnePlus has chose to stick with a real audio-out jack on its OP6.

Though its a little early to form a final verdict about the OnePlus 6, going by all the information we have so far, the device will be a definite generational leap in comparison to the OnePlus 5 or even the OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus 6 camera samples surfaces on the wild

The OnePlus 6 comes with a 16MP main camera with an F1.7 aperture. As has been the case since the OnePlus 5, the cameras allow for portrait mode bokeh photography, lossless zoom like on the Galaxy S9 or iPhone X, natural black and white images, and 4K video at 30 frames per second. According to OnePlus, they've increased the size by 19 percent to 1.22 microns which allows for more light in lowly lit situations. The OnePlus 6 is the successor to the OnePlus 5 that was launched previous year in June.

Meanwhile, the selfie shooter weighs in at 16MP with an f/2.0 aperture. New in this version are navigation gestures similar to what we're seeing in Android P. There are also under-the-hood optimizations to make the overall experience faster.

You won't have to wait long to get one of these, as the OnePlus 6 release date is set for May 22 in the USA and Europe. OnePlus plans to sell the OP6 in two colours to start, "mirror black" and "midnight black".

At a starting price of $529, the OnePlus 6 is the most expensive OnePlus smartphone so far. The limited edition Silk White model will come in a 8GB+128GB configuration only.

As with any OnePlus device, the OnePlus 6 is handsome and functional in equal measure - now, with more screen than ever before.
