Talking to fans via a recent forum post, Pete Lau, CEO and Founder of OnePlus, confirms that the newly christened OnePlus 6 will be available with a 256 GB storage option, a first for the brand, and will come fully equipped with 8GB of RAM. The new flagship which is all set to debut in the coming quarter will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest chipset – the Snapdragon 845 SOC.
In the forum post, Pete Lau, CEO and Founder of OnePlus said, “Understanding the relationship between people and smartphones, we brainstormed with our community of OnePlus users to learn what the users want most – a flexible, light and quick experience. Keeping these parameters at heart, we have conceptualized the OnePlus 6. To make this experience a reality we have established within our ranks a special R&D unit, called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient). The one goal of this unit is to ensure that we can transcend the current norm with providing our users with what we believe to be a truly ‘burdenless’ user experience.”

The 256GB variant specs represents a significant upgrade in OnePlus’ offerings as it will be the first time this storage size is being offered. Previous models originally topped out at 128GB. Earlier today, OnePlus unveiled a teaser video for the OnePlus 6. This four second long video confirmed the name of the next flagship as “OnePlus 6”. This video also gave fans a hint that this phone will pack ‘the speed you need’. You can watch the video here – https://twitter.com/oneplus/status/980822167255441408
Given this and the fact that OnePlus has also confirmed that there will be a notch in the upcoming OnePlus 6, we are very certain that the release date of the device is just around the corner. A little birdie also told us that there will be a special Avengers edition of the OnePlus 6. Looking at what they did with the StarWars Edition of the OnePlus 5T, this looks very interesting. All in all, the buzz mills are churning and it looks like we are in for a brilliant device that is nippy and fast, just like other OnePlus devices till now
