The new OnePlus 6 and OnePlus Bullet Wireless headphones will be made available on the OnePlus website. The India price of the device will be revealed tomorrow as the launch is slated to happen at an event in Mumbai.

For the first time, a OnePlus handset is glass on both the front and back of the device - placing it in step with the other premium flagship handsets out there. "The OnePlus 6 has an all-glass design with a 6.28" full optic AMOLED display and an impressive 84 per cent screen-to-body ratio - a relatively recent metric for this fearless new, bezel-averse generation and a scoreboard that OnePlus, but for a fraction of a smidge of a per cent, now nearly sits atop. OnePlus plans to sell the OP6 in two colours to start, "mirror black" and "midnight black".

Like all OnePlus phones, the 6 features a top-of-the-line processor and graphics, but like the iPhone X, it's the screen that is the star of the show here.

Well, if you are wondering that how you all will able to see the Live OnePLus Launch Live Stream then don't worry. The White Silk variant will be arriving on June 5. The Chinese smartphone maker in the lead-up to the event positioned the device as a speed demon, going so far as to confirm more than a month ago that it would be powered by Qualcomm's speedy Snapdragon 845 SoC mated to a generous 8GB of RAM.

Lethal Weapon Finds A New Co-Lead With Seann William Scott
He is to play a new character opposite series regular Damon Wayans in the series based on the film franchise of the same name. One we've been keen to hear news about is whether Lethal Weapon was going to get a season 3 or not.

The dual camera system on the rear of the OnePlus 6 combines a 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel lens that offer high-end photo quality and light, bright images. The dual-camera is improved by OIS (optical image stabilisation) and has been repositioned vertically along the back of the device.

The new design also incorporates a considerable change to the screen, with a 6.3-inch screen in a much taller 19:9 aspect ratio. Despite adding a glass back to the mix, OnePlus did not also add inductive charging. OnePlus is touting a Slow Motion video recording, capable of capturing 480 frames per second. New in this version are navigation gestures similar to what we're seeing in Android P. There are also under-the-hood optimizations to make the overall experience faster. The company says it believes its Dash Charge fast charging solution is still the best overall solution for topping up one of its devices. OnePlus added a bunch of new effects to Portrait Mode on the OnePlus 6, as well as Advanced HDR for more vibrant colors. There is also an inbuilt video editor.

And since no phone is complete without AI, the 16 MP front camera uses an AI to create the Portrait modes bokeh. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, and proximity sensor - it bears a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel, said to unlock the smartphone in as little as 0.2 seconds. The biggest differentiation is the design - moving from metal to glass transforms the look and feel of the phone, and I'd say the OnePlus 6 is more modern in both respects.

Dimensions of this device are 155.7 x 75.4 x 7.8 mm and it weighs 177 grams. It's also waterproof, although we don't have an exact IP rating just yet. These Bluetooth earbuds offer some nifty new tech, and OnePlus says just 10 minutes of charging will give Bullets Wireless enough juice for 5 hours of continuous playback.
