The folks at OnePlus have been busy and by the looks of the recently leaked images of the OnePlus 6, it seems the phone is almost an identical looking handset to the iPhone X design with notch included. The invitation to the event on May 16th, 2018 for the unveil mentions “Live Life in Super Slow Mo” which we believe will be a 960fps slow-motion mode akin to that in the Galaxy S9 & S9+ or the Sony Xperia ZX2.
OnePlus has been one of the best performing handsets for Android users due to their use of the best components out there along with a streamlined ROM that does away with most bloatware on the main install. Users of these phones also routinely claim huge battery life due to the optimized nature of the background tasks. For Slow Motion, they have only been competitive on the mid-range but that will probably change if Slow Motion is a big feature on this new phone.

These leaks seem to imply that the OnePlus 6 will be the best performing phone for the price in the high-end smartphone market. It will be a matter of testing the camera capabilities to see just how good and capable it will be and if the slow-motion mode will be able to compete or exceed the Sony and Samsung implementations in side by side testing. We remain cautious with some reservations due to the past releases doing less than competitive slow motion. The Huawei P20 disappointed us by interpolating their 960fps mode from a lower source we believe it to be 480fps or possibly lower. If OnePlus with their new 6 handset is able to deliver real frame rates it will be the phone to beat at high speed this year. Somehow we remain unconvinced but hopeful. We will know more by May 16th when we have a direct spec sheet and possibly a plethora of samples to look at. Stay tuned – HSC!
