These days it feels like phone launches are little more than a formality, seeing as how we get to see everything leaked months ahead of time. But they have to happen, and OnePlus is now teasing the official unveiling of its next handset, notch and all.

Aside from the eye roll-worthy attempt at using six in place of the letter G, the emphasis is clearly on speed. Which is hardly a surprise seeing as how the OnePlus 5 had the choice of 8GB or 6GB of RAM back when phone companies thought 4GB was good enough. Plus the rumours that suggest the update will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chip and that ridiculous 8GB of memory.
It's already been confirmed that the phone itself will have an bezel-free display and the 3.5mm headphone jack, and rumours have been circulating about the price. Spoiler: it's probably going to be expensive, which is hardly a surprise given the state of the premium phone market right now.
The 64GB model is supposedly 3,299 Yuan (£374), with the 128GB and 256GB models following in at 3,799 Yuan (£431) and 4,399 Yuan (£498). They're not the most absurd prices when you directly convert them, especially considering the amount you'd have to pay for a maxed-out iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9. Plus that's assuming we'll get direct conversions, which as we all know has literally never happened.
Currently the new phone is expected to be properly unveiled at the end of the month, and we'll make sure to keep you in the loop. [TechRadar]
