OnePlus Confirms 16th May OnePlus 6 Launch Date, and You Could be There

By Tom Pritchard on at

After much rumour and speculation regarding the launch of the OnePlus 6, the company has just announced that it the big launch event will be happening on 16th May. What's more OnePlus is giving people the chance to attend a special launch event in London, but only if they pay first.

'The Speed You Need' event kicks off at 5pm on May 16th, giving people the chance to try out the OnePlus 6 for themselves, party, and come out with a bag of 'swag' which I can only imagine involves a large bag with dollar signs printed on the front. Likewise OnePlus is offering a "mystery gift" to anyone in attendance who actually buys the phone for themselves.

As I mentioned before, however, the event isn't free. While that means you don't have to enter some sort of competition, sweepstakes, or get invited along by someone already in attendance, it does mean you have to buy a ticket. 1,000 tickets are available, with £16 early bird tickets available until 8pm BST on Friday. After that any remaining tickets will cost £30, though you save £10 on any additional tickets you buy.

If you don't want to go or simply can't go for whatever reason, OnePlus is also streaming the launch live - which is pretty standard practice for any phone company. Obviously we'll be tuning in to see what OnePlus has to offer, and everything you need to know will be up on site.
