Taking the full screen display feature to the maximum, the new flagship from OnePlus 6, could sport an aspect ratio of 19:9. There is no clear indication of when the device will be launched. The company seems to have assigned the code A6000 to it now. However, some details have emerged through leaks from the benchmarks site AnTuTu and based on these, many predications are being issued.

The significant factor coming out of the benchmarks site is the score that the OnePlus phone has been able to earn a remarkable 276,510 points on the benchmark score. Observers point out that, firstly, this score is even higher that the best recorded so far, by Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S (slated for launch on March 27); and the other point is it leaves very little doubt that the OnePlus 6 would be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.

It is also being pointed out that OnePlus has followed the practice of fitting the top processor in the market in its previous flagships as well. Some analysts believe OnePlus smartphones have been known to be quite fast in terms of performance.

Before this leak through the benchmarks, there were some images of the phone seen where the display appears to have a space left after providing for the normal widgets. This seems to suggest there could be a cutout display within the screen. So, going by the way the icons have been placed on the display screen, the notch is bound to appear on it.

Some of the other predictions about the next flagship from OnePlus include a back panel made of glass, a physical fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and a dual camera setup. The speculations also suggest that the OnePlus 6, if that is the actual name the phone would be released in, could hit the market earlier this year than the June 2017 release of OnePlus 5.
