OnePlus Bullets Wireless earphones cut the chord between your phone and ears

OnePlus 6 camera samples surfaces on the wild

Priced at $69 (Rs 4,700 approx.) the new Bullets Wireless are expected to arrive in June.

The OnePlus 6 vs iPhone X screen is a little bit of a closer game, with both of them featuring an OLED display that offers some seriously attractive picture quality.

OnePlus' apparent ethos on the notch appears to echo my own, which is that I don't really care for the naysayers and accusations of Apple mimicry.

The OnePlus 6, the latest device from the Chinese manufacturer famed for its high-quality, low-price smartphones, is nearly upon us. Additionally, OnePlus has confirmed that their Fingerprint Scanner is now more secure and fast as it detects more than 100 points on the face. The device runs on Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 845 and comes in three storage/RAM configurations. OnePlus has finally broken the $500 barrier by pricing the base variant of the OnePlus 6 at $529 as opposed to the $499 for its predecessor. And this is something OnePlus has done consistently since the OnePlus One. Love it or hate it, OnePlus is making a statement with the 6: Why spend $1,000 on an iPhone X when you can get all the same features for almost half the price?

OnePlus seems to have settled comfortably into a six-month refresh cycle for its flagship (and sole) smartphone offering.

The changes don't stop there - OnePlus has gone with glass on the rear for the first time. The mid-range OnePlus X launched in 2015 is the first OnePlus smartphone to embrace the glass design.

The OnePlus 6's fast charge - a favorite feature amongst OnePlus users - offers one of the fastest charging solutions on the global market.

While the Mirror Black is shiny-shiny, the matte Midnight Black has actually been treated to perforated layers of glass which give it a slightly patterned sheen while still retaining an overall matte look (you can't see the perforations).

There's a pair of cameras at the back of this device that make it top-notch.

The earbuds snap together magnetically when they're not in your ears, pausing the music automatically and resuming when you pull them apart again, and each earpiece comes with silicone "fins" - rubber loops created to hold them in your ears when you're exercising.

The OnePlus 6 wants to replace your Apple or Samsung phone and save you money in the process. Notable, the 6 doesn't support wireless charging despite its glass back. Headphone users will be relieved that the USB-C connector sits right next to a headphone jack.

Take the OnePlus 6 out of its box and a few things hit you: bright display with notch on top, glossy glass back and a curved edged that is easier to hold.

The camera has always been OnePlus's weakest link, and it's given it another upgrade on the OnePlus 6. The primary camera is accompanied by a secondary camera that uses a 20-megapixel image sensor with F1.7 lens.

As far as video goes, the OnePlus 6 will record 4K video at 60fps, as well as super-slow motion mode at up to 480fps, though only in 720p.

OnePlus 6 gets a notch on the front display.

As for software, the OnePlus 6 ships with OxygenOS 5.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Using AI, the front camera is able to apply a depth of field effect to selfies. It does take away a bit from the look of the phone, but as I mentioned, this is a standard grouse on all Android smartphones today. Meanwhile, everything is crystal clear on the OnePlus 6's nice big display.

The first two are Mirror Black and Midnight Black. In the U.S you can directly buy from the OnePlus store since the device is sold directly without any carrier bundling.

The OnePlus 6 is also one of a small collection of smartphones eligible for the Android 9 P beta test, which was recently made available for Google's Pixel devices.
