In a mere four years OnePlus has gone from an unknown Chinese startup to one of the best phone makers around, and that’s even more obvious with the OnePlus 6. Its pairing of high-end features and specs with a lower-than-average price initially caught the eye of the tech obsessed, but it’s no longer just for those who lurk on the seriously active OnePlus forums.

Pricing for the OnePlus 6 will start at £469 in the UK, €519 in Europe and $529 in the US, Rs 34999 in India

Much of what makes the OnePlus 6 feel extra special is the completely new build and design. It’s now made almost completely of glass, which curves around the rear and feels fantastic in the hand.

There’s a highly polished black version that’s gorgeous but quite the fingerprint magnet, a more conservative Midnight Black matte model and a stunning White and pinky gold variation that sadly won’t arrive until after launch. OnePlus told me the latter hue was made with powdered pearl dust, and while that sounds like the beginnings of a mythical witch’s brew, it does give the phone an jewel-like finish.

There’s been a switch-up in other classic OnePlus design aspects to. The alert slide is still present, but it sits on the opposite side; and the fingerprint sensor is now an oblong shape, perched beneath the centrally positioned dual cameras.
