Smartphones have been beefing up the internal storage capacity on their smartphones with the provision for a microSD slot. But now, OnePlus is breaking this practice by fitting its latest flagship OnePlus 6 with in-built storage of 256GB.
This could be an industry first at least as far as the smartphones are concerned with 128GB being the highest one has heard so far. This has been confirmed by the CEO and Founder of OnePlus, Pete Lau, in an online post.
The company has also released a teaser video of the device ahead of its official launch. Coming to the specs, the OnePlus 6 smartphone is likely to sport a 6.28-inch Full HD+ display and a host of other features, positioning the device directly against the top ones from leaders like Samsung and Apple. The OnePlus 6 will come with 8GB RAM and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845SoC. And to fight the perception battle, it was also reported that the company plans to keep the price of this new phone at around $750.
Lau has gone on to speak a little about the work being carried out by the technical team at OnePlus to improve the user experience with their phones. He has claimed that the company had engaged their customers on what they expected from the phones and based on that a special R & D unit christened ‘Team FSE’ has been developing devices and components and features in them. FSE here stands for Fast, Stable and Efficient.
The theme of OnePlus 6 seems to be speed.
“Fast is not just about shorter loading times or top download speeds, any OEM can achieve high numbers in one or two metrics. Fast is about creating a lasting impression of speed and smoothness, throughout all-day use, whether you’re recording 4K video or browsing Facebook. Fast is about ensuring there is less than a 1/1000 percent likelihood of your phone freezing, even under constant heavy use. To us, it’s about setting a higher standard,” Lau said in the post.
There is no mention on the pricing and other details in the blog post by the CEO.
