Likely to appear in June 2018, the OnePlus 6 could be the most expensive smartphone the brand has ever presented. Even so, if it costs $ 600 or the equivalent of $ 749 in its top version, it will still be a good investment. In fact, it will have one of the best price / quality ratios in the entire mobile device market.
Then I will give you a handful of reasons to defend my thesis. In the end I also ask you to leave your opinion in the comments because it is with the debate that we all learned. I will also take this piece to gather some of the characteristics pointed and expectations for this OnePlus 6 that is already coming.

Let's take a little look back and price analysis of the latest OnePlus smartphones. Looking at 2017, last November we had the OnePlus 5T. The smartphone is the current high-end and costs € 499 in the base version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Already the top version, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage costs 559 € in the official store.
This was the first smartphone of the company founded by Pete Lau (CEO) and Carl Pei (VP and co-founder) introducing an 18: 9 screen. The new, taller, narrower screen ratio that gives us a look quite different from mobile devices. Now rumors abound that OnePlus will be the subject of a serious investment by the brand and will force consumers to make an investment of € 600.
OnePlus 6 may require an investment of 600 €
For this the Chinese manufacturer will have to justify well this investment of 600 €. It will do so with a screen that will take up to 90% of the entire front panel area. At least, so say the rumors. I recall that we saw here the first real images of a possible prototype, and here we would practically confirm the “single mirror” or notch on top of your screen. To accommodate this "single mirror" OnePlus 6 would have to display a 19: 9 screen. It would be something similar to Apple's iPhone X in its overall appearance. Tall, narrow and elegant.
Can OnePlus justify the € 600 investment?
Before 5T we would have OnePlus 5 to be presented in June 2017. Its launch price would also be € 499 in base version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Requiring a maximum investment of € 559 on the top version, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage without memory expansion.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 will be your "heart"
Now, by 2018, the introduction of Qualcomm's state-of-the-art processor, the Snapdragon 845 could push the price up. It is a SoC (system on chip) with 8 processing cores, so one octa-core. Here we have 4 high performance 2.7 GHz Kryo 385 Gold cores and 4 1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver cores for energy saving. It will also feature the Adreno 630 printer.
We will certainly have 8GB of RAM and, according to the latest rumors, a total of 256GB of non-expandable internal storage. This will be the top configuration with the base version with 6GB of RAM. It will also have a total of 128GB of internal storage. Here the investment of 600 € would already have another justification, the increase of internal memory, both in the base version and the top version.
€ 600 will continue to be a good investment compared to the other "Tops"
In the image above we can see the OnePlus 6, last and in red, compared to the current tops of the market. Here we have the Huawei P20 Pro, the Apple iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S9 +. We also have the key features of each, from price to internal memory and fast charging technology. We also have reference to the mega pixels of cameras, RAM and screen size. We still have the processor of each of them.
8GB RAM and 256GB storage on OnePlus 6
Thus we can see that OnePlus 6 will deserve the investment of € 600 in the face of much more expensive competition. We will have here, in OnePlus 6, a total of 8GB of RAM in the top version. The fast charging technology known as Dash Charge. Not to mention the rear camera, dual with a 16MP sensor and another 20MP sensor. Not to mention its 6.2-inch screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
It is also important to emphasize that until your presentation everything can change. These data, although plausible given the current status quo of the mobile market may be just a scam. We are unable to confirm the authenticity of the information at this time.
However, based on all that has been suggested by the rumors. Taking into account industry trends. Given their state of development, I believe these may be the characteristics of the next flagship killer.
And would you be willing to make an investment of 600 € to have a OnePlus 6?
