OnePlus 6 is all over the place since its release is getting near. Adding fuel to the fire OnePlus’s co-founder Pete Lau shares some of the images taken by OnePlus 6 in the Chinese microblogging website weibo.
The images look great especially the ones with the blue sky and the portrait shot of a tulip flower with accurate color reproduction under good lighting conditions. The alleged dual camera set up with 20MP+16MP sensors are doing a great job in capturing the color under good lighting, however, the low light performance of the new setup is yet to be seen.
OnePlus, Avengers: Infinity War alliance
Speculations being that OnePlus is in collaboration with Marvel for Avengers: Infinity War. At this point there no guarantee that this is going to involve OnePlus 6. OnePlus announced a COSPLAY contest and a multiplayer game. The winner will be given two tickets for Marvel’s 10th-anniversary festival in Shanghai. This is only for Chinese fans as the announcement was made via Weibo
OnePlus is also seen teasing about gesture support and the new alert slider in its previous tweets. These are not new at this point as gestures were already introduced in Oxygen OS 5.1.0, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. And we have been seeing with the alert slider on OnePlus’s devices front OnePlus 2.
