The OnePlus 6 is official, with the company focusing on speed

If this indeed ends up being the price, the bump in rates would take OnePlus 6 closer to the pricing of devices in the premium segment. Similarly, the company will also be launching the same on in India on the 17th of May. You can simply get this attractive phone in a few different colors, storage sizes, and variants starting the 22nd. And that is a wrap.

What's even better than the OnePlus 6? The smartphone will start at $529 (roughly Rs 35,900), Euro 469 and GBP 519. Now, the company has announced several launch offers as well.

There are three different colours of OnePlus 6 to choose from: matte "midnight" black, reflective "mirror" black - which you can see from my hands-on images - and a special "silk" white model, with pearl powder underneath the rear glass panel that shimmers when the phone catches the light. If you look at just these two criteria, there is nothing comparable from Sony, LG, HTC and co. It has 16MP front-facing camera with Sony IMX 371 sensor, f/2.0 aperture and EIS for stable selfies.

While OnePlus isn't a household name, over the past few years they've carved out a nice spot for themselves in the mobile market. OnePlus has showcased the capabilities of the cameras on the OnePlus 6.

There's also a new Portrait Mode, which will be supported by the front camera as well with an upcoming software update. With Advanced HDR, OnePlus' improved High Dynamic Range algorithm, the OnePlus 6 brings out shadows and enhances lighting in photos.

Overall, I'd say well done OnePlus! Speed, though, isn't just measured in megacycles or the ability to simultaneously read and write data - though those factors are important. Pei is now talking about how his company wants to create phones that should not slow down with use. Other variants might include 6GB RAM, 64GB storage or 128GB storage.

PM Modi offers prayer at Muktinath temple in Nepal
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to Nepal, where he is at Janakpur today, the birthplace of Goddess Sita. I will be holding extensive talks with PM Oli on ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation", Modi tweeted on Thursday.

But only the OnePlus 6 has the ability to download and install the Android P beta well ahead of the official launch. There is the new mirror black which mimics the jet black on the iPhone 7 but the difference is there is glass on the back. There is Silk White and the Midnight Black too.

OnePlus 6 will get its grand unveiling today as the Chinese smartphone start-up lifts the lid on its latest Android device. That's usually one of the perks of a glass back. If the performance of the OnePlus 5T is anything to go by, then OnePlus 6 will no-doubt be faster. So let's wait for the final launch of onePlus 6. OnePlus says this is going to make the phone stronger, and better able to connect to cellular networks. Taking things to next level, OnePlus 6 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 CPU paired with 6/8 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB of internal storage. OnePlus has also said the 6 is water resistant, but made it clear that the phone doesn't have an IP rating so it's not a good idea to deliberately expose it to water and test that feature out.

It's also worth noting that the 6 keeps the headphone jack in place, giving users the option of plugging in a range of personal audio accessories. Loud cheers at the event venue.

09;43 pm: The Bullets Wireless will retail for $69, 69 euros and 69 pounds and will be available from June 5. For now no details of the India price.

Finally, like Apple and Google before it, OnePlus has chose to launch its own set of wireless earphones to go with its phones.
