OnePlus has teased two new features of the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone. The company’s latest teaser reveal that the upcoming smartphone might come with gesture controls.
The teasers also hints that the smartphone will feature an alert slider, which is already present in OnePlus devices, but this time it might boast some different functions as well. Coming back to the gesture controls, the teaser hints that users could swipe up and down on the device for different functions, which could be similar to what we have seen in the iPhone X. However, it would be interesting to see how well does the company implement the gesture on its upcoming smartphone.
The company has already confirmed that the upcoming smartphone will feature an Apple iPhone X-like notch. So, it is obvious that the brand will introduce gesture controls so that users will be able to fully utilise the full-screen experience. The brand has stressed that the notch present in its upcoming smartphone is different, ‘implemented with more thought and care’. OnePlus provided the precise measurements for its upcoming OnePlus 6 as 19.616mm x 7.687mm. Pei further added that OnePlus team has manually tested the top 1,000 apps from Play Store that would require compatibility mode with the notch.
Earlier, OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau, in a forum post, confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus 6 will feature a massive 256GB of internal storage, making it company’s first phone to bear such large storage. Lau also confirmed that the phone will be backed by an 8GB of RAM. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
