It's Coming! OnePlus 6 With Snapdragon 845 Launching In June 2018

He also confirmed that the next OnePlus device will be launching at the end of Q2 like previous year. At the same time, they are also in talks with U.S. telcos to launch their phones under these telcos in hopes that it will bring more awareness to United States customers.

In an interview with CNET at CES, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the firm's next flagship - no doubt set to arrive as the OnePlus 6 - will be unveiled in "late Q2 2018", which means a June launch is likely on the cards. Making a deal with one or more USA carriers will give OnePlus access to millions of potential new customers.

Although Lau refused to divulge any further information, he confirmed that the device would run on the latest processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845. However, if OnePlus plans to let go of the mid-year update cycle, the company will have to build OnePlus 6 in a way that it stays relevant throughout the 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.

OnePlus for the past couple of years has been releasing two phones a year, like the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 5T, and if you were hoping for the OnePlus 6T, you might be disappointed. If the company plans on sticking to its release schedule from previous year, the OnePlus 6 could arrive in June. The smartphone is also the first from the company to feature face unlock feature.

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. Lau claims if the right opportunity and timing came along, it would be happy to experiment. We've reached to OnePlus to see if the company is in talks with Canadian carriers and OnePlus has declined to comment. Selling its Android phones through carriers in the US now seems like a logical step forward to further cement itself as a major competitor in the smartphone market. If they get succeed, then definitely OnePlus' sale will boost even higher in the US. While such a partnership can pose risks like slow updates, it would allow OnePlus to become known among the mainstream US smartphone market.
