If it has a proper IP rating and wireless charging then I'll jump on the bandwagon this time round...

Dash charging is just so good though. Even if wireless were implemented, I can't see myself using that as an alternative. IP rating would be welcome but the current models are water resistance to a degree, just not officially.

What I'm hoping for:
1.) Flagship quality camera
2.) QHD screen

Other than that...

Today, we have additional information to share on the upcoming OnePlus 6. According to our trusted source, the device will be the first from the company with Gigabit LTE connectivity (Cat. 16). Thus, not only will the device be a physical powerhouse with the latest Snapdragon, it will also be the fastest OnePlus device in terms of data throughput.

The OnePlus 6 will be officially announced on May 17 in China

If you head over to OnePlus’ Chinese site, you’ll see an invitation for the OnePlus 6 launch event. The occasion will take place in Beijing at 10AM, local time. The product launch is open to local press and fans like the OnePlus 5T's launch was. The site mentions that ticket sales will open starting on April 27 at 10AM for 99 Yuan (about $15 USD) per ticket.

The event’s tagline is “The Speed You Need” which headlines the phone’s Snapdragon 845 and 8GB of RAM that we’re expecting to see.

Other rumored specs for the OnePlus 6 include a 6.2-inch display with “the notch”, a 3,450 mAh battery, and a dual camera setup comprised of 16MP + 20MP sensors. There is still no word on pricing or actual release dates – which we will hear about during the event.

Just yesterday, OnePlus teased that the 6 will have an “honest design” and we were shown that it would feature a glass back – we are crossing our fingers for some kind of water resistance.

OnePlus 6 global debut set for May 16

OnePlus is hosting an event in London on May 16 on which it will reveal what's left to reveal of its OnePlus 6 flagship.

The London event comes a day earlier than the Chinese launch event - set to be held in Beijing and the Indian event that will be held in Mumbai on May 17.

The OnePlus 6 is mostly well-known by now. It will have a 6.28-inch 1080x2280 AMOLED screen, 16MP+20MP dual camera on the back and sport the current best of the best Snapdragon 845 and 8GB of RAM. It will be made using some new materials too.

You can buy tickets for the London event at OnePlus' website. Tickets bought before April 27 cost £16 and (if there are any left) £30 after.

OnePlus fans in India will be able to purchase entry vouchers for the event on oneplus.in from 10:00 IST on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. The event will take place at the Dome at NSCI, Mumbai. Those attending will receive a gift hamper that will also include exclusive Marvel Avengers merchandize, among other things. The phone will go on sale on Amazon India, where Amazon Prime members will get Prime Early Access and will be the first to purchase the phone starting 12:00 IST on May 21, 2018.

I'll definitely be getting the 6T. Will be a worthy upgrade from my 3T.

Don't care unless it's coming to SA
You mean with full local support? Pretty easy to get one here, but no local support at the mo, which is some what disappointing!

You rocking a 3T? Gees, good going man. 3T is a great device!

The silk white? So beautiful. Must resist.

$30 more than the 5T equivalent.

OnePlus 6 puts S845 power behind a notched screen, shoots 4K @ 60fps video

OnePlus 6 wants to prove that it’s greater than the competition with a number of firsts for the company. It’s not a revolutionary redesign, but OnePlus’ MO has always been to offer a flagship experience at a lower price than the competition.

The 6.28” Optic AMOLED display is the largest OnePlus has used yet. It has an 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch so it fits in just about the same footprint as the 5T (OnePlus says it covers 84% of the front, but that doesn't account for the notch). The resolution is 1,080 x 2,280 px and there's support for both sRGB and DCI-P3.

The camera department boasts 4K @ 60 fps video recording – a rarity even in 2018. And it can shoot 480 fps slow-mo videos at 720p resolution for 3.75s. resulting in a minute of actual footage. The video is recorded through the 16 MP main camera on the back, which has a sensor 19% larger than the one in the 5T.

The OnePlus 6 also gets OIS back - a feature the 5 duo lacked. The secondary camera of the dual cam setup uses a 20 MP sensor. Smart Capture automatically optimizes image quality based on what you are shooting and there's a new and improved HDR algorithm.

And since no phone is complete without AI, the 16 MP front camera uses an AI to create the Portrait mode’s bokeh. The front camera also does face unlocking in 0.4s. Or you could keep using the fingerprint reader on the back (it and the camera have a new look to boot).

With the 6, OnePlus embraced the metal and glass design. No sandstone and no metal, instead there are three distinct color options – a reflective Mirror Black, a matte Midnight Black and a Silk White (which will be a limited edition). Each gives depth to the Gorilla Glass 5 with decorative layers tucked underneath.

Also, the phone now features basic water resistance, but there’s no officially listed IP rating (going by the OnePlus description it should be IP54 equivalent).

Of course the OnePlus 6 is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset. It comes with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and you can have up to 256 GB of 2-lane UFS 2.1 storage. No, no microSD slot in this generation either (not that anyone expected different).

The battery is one of the few things that remain unchanged – it has 3,300 mAh capacity and is charged over the fast Dash Charge (5V at 4A). Surprisingly, there’s no wireless charging support despite the glass back.

The latest model sports gigabit LTE thanks to its 4x4 MIMO antennas. There will be two major variants – NA/EU (40 bands) and CN/IN (37 bands). Check out the pricing:
