A recent tweet from the company has confirmed some more features like a teaser on Twitter hints that the smartphone might get IP67 or IP68 certification.

There was some speculation recently about the material that OnePlus would use for the back of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6. Unsurprisingly, it's going to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Separately, OnePlus is set to unveil the OnePlus 6 at an event in London on May 16, a day ahead of its launch in China and India.

This is not the first time when OnePlus has used glass on the phone, although the model OnePlus X, which was released in 2015, was available in two versions - glass and ceramics.

As for availability, India will be one of the first markets where the phone will go up for sale, with Amazon Prime customers in the country able to pick up the device in an early access sale on May 21.

LAB program members will supposedly get to trial the OnePlus 6 before it launches, and they've been notified via email that the OnePlus 6 launch will take place on May 21st.

We are expecting OnePlus to launch this device somewhere in the middle of May. This phone will be some what same like OnePlus 5T which was launched past year with "Star wars" theme. It is expected that the price of this phone will start at Rs. 33,999 and could go upto 39,999 depending upon the storage options. Unfortunately, Lau didn't even mention wireless charging and just focused on talking about the overall look of the OnePlus 6 and how the company believes in having an "honest design".

The OnePlus 5T officially came into the world in November 2017, which means we're nearly due for a replacement from OnePlus - the Chinese startup that likes to offer premium flagship phone specs for mid-range prices.

Tickets for "The Speed You Need" event can be purchased here. Besides keeping the company's signature 'horizon line and characteristic curve, the glass panel will also boast a 5-layer Nanotech Coating that will "give the back of the device a stronger impression of depth".
