Starting off with the design, OnePlus is ditching its traditional aluminum build and opting for an all-glass structure.

Combining new technology from Qualcomm® with OnePlus' engineering, the OnePlus 6 is the fastest handset the company has ever produced. It's also waterproof, although we don't have an exact IP rating just yet. On the inside, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were nearly the same device but to look at, they seemed to be from different generations. It's an AMOLED screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and 2280 x 1080 pixel resolution.

At the top of the display, unfortunately, there's a notch. Snap them together, and they're off; unsnap them, and they switch on, it's that simple. To provide users with as much screen real estate as possible, OnePlus designed the navigation bar so that it can be replaced with gesture control, freeing up even more viewing space for a cleaner look.

With up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the OnePlus 6 effortlessly switches between multiple apps running at the same time without a single second of lag, allowing users to multitask easily. "This is the fastest flagship experience OnePlus has ever created", OnePlus said.

The OnePlus 6 is powered by one of the most powerful processors on the market, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845, which improves performance by 30%, while being 10% more power efficient. Additionally, there's Bluetooth 5, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and NFC. On the bottom you'll find a 3.5mm jack, a sole loudspeaker, and a USB-C port, while OnePlus's trademark alert slider is on the right side, above the volume buttons. Face Unlock is available as an alternative to using a lock-screen PIN or the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

A pair of headphones is practically useless if they don't deliver a good audio output.

Except, by all accounts Jenner and boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed their first daughter together ― albeit in secret ― in February. It's not often that Cait shares photos of her kids or family on Instagram - this image was from Father's Day past year .

On the back of the OnePlus 6 are dual cameras.

The secondary camera is a 20MP F1.7 shooter, and while it doesn't have any optical zoom properties, it allows bokeh effects to be applied to the images.

The OnePlus 6 comes with a 16MP main camera with an F1.7 aperture. Along with ability to record 4K videos, OnePlus 6 is the first phone which can record slow motion videos at an incredible 480 frames-per-second (fps).

At the time of writing, it still remains to be seen if the OnePlus 6 will be officially launched in Malaysia. While they're launching alongside the OnePlus 6, the earbuds will work with the OnePlus 5 and 5T as well. The company's been known for timely updates and a fluid experience so expect nothing less from this generation. Fortunately, the OnePlus 6 price is more attractive in the United States, at $529 for 64 GB, $579 for 128 GB, and $629 for 256 GB.

Like it or not, the OnePlus 6 is adopting the glass-on-metal construction so popular among smartphones today. The phone will be available in Silk White, Midnight Black or Mirror Black. You can buy the "limited edition" Silk White with 128GB on June the 5th. However, the OnePlus 6 comes with a design that's different from last year's OnePlus smartphones and is more in line with the current trend.
