OnePlus 6 Display
There is not much change in the new onePlus device compared to OnePlus 5T. OnePlus 6 is very attractive in comparison to the OnePlus 5T in both the front and rear view. Oneplus has increased the screen size this time and the company has used the glass back for the first time. Speaking of the display, OnePlus has used the trading “Noch” display in the smartphone world. Although the “notch” used in it is much less than the other smartphone.
On notch you get earpiece, proximity sensor, notification and front camera. So giving all this in a small “notch” makes Winplus 6 different from the rest of the smartphone. Even the small earpiece does not affect call audio.
Due to “notch”, the display comes on both sides of the top. Because of this, its screen size is 6.28 inches and ratio is 19: 9. It has an AMOLED screen whose resolution is slightly higher than full-HD i.e. 2280 × 1080.

This time the company has used hard glass in OnePlus 6 to remove its traditional hard metal. Glass backs point to being quite sensitive, but the company says that they have used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection in its back glass as its front. Phones come in four types of colors – Mirror Black, Midnight Black, Silk White and Degonzer Editions. Two of these color variants will always be available in the cell while two variants are limited edition. Compared to OnePlus 5T, Dual camera setup of OnePlus 6 has been replaced and replaced with fingerprint sensor. Dual camera is placed on vertical position and fingerprint sensor has been given a pill shape. However, this change does not affect its performance. Because of the glass back of both the variants of the mirror black and the dexterity editions, they are very easily spots. However its mat finish variant attaches to the same scars. However, due to the dull color, the spots are less glowing.
Apart from this, OnePlus has made some changes in the side of the phone. Alert slider and SIM tray have been replaced together. The alert slider is on the right side and the SIM tray is on the left side, while the USB Type-C port and 3.5mm jack are given below. The most noteworthy thing is that the company has made Water Register for OnePlus 6, but it has not been officially rated for immersing in water.

Speaking of the OS, OnePlus has brought this device with the latest OxygenOS 5.0 based on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo.

There is nothing in this smartphone that is new to anything else. The focus of the company was to create a smartphone that people could actually use in a good way and they did not face any problem.
