OnePlus is a brand that’s unique in terms of its fast release cycle, and while the 5T is still pretty much relevant, its successor has already been unveiled. Meet the new OnePlus 6, boasting of more powerful hardware and features that take it a step further.

Starting with the display, the OnePlus 6 has a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio. Yes, that means you get the familiar notch that hides the front camera and other sensors. Under the hood is no less than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, along with up to 8GB of RAM, and up to a generous 256GB of built-in storage. Nope, it’s not expandable.

The device features improved optics as well – the 16MP main camera can record 4K videos at 60fps, and 480 fps slow motion videos in 720p resolution. It has a feature called Smart Capture, which works like scene detection in other devices. The front camera now uses AI for its portrait mode.

The OnePlus 6 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, with OxygenOS on top, and packs a 3,300mAh battery with Dash Charge. If you’re looking for wireless charging, nope, it doesn’t have that. It comes in Midnight Black, Mirror Black, and Silk White.

While the Philippines wasn’t initially listed as one of the countries where the device will be available, I won’t be surprised if it really does arrive here. International availability starts on May 22.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
