Waterdrop notch

Oppo R17 Pro waterdrop notch

Frankly speaking, Many Android phone manufacturers shamelessly copied the iPhone X notch dimensions. iPhone X has a lot sensors in that notch, unless you don’t have any, don’t copy the notch design just to make it look like Apple’s iDevice.

OnePlus may go beyond and sport a beautiful waterdrop notch like the Oppo R17 Pro.

A 120hz display (Maybe next time)

Whenever I think that mobile phone technology has saturated, something new comes year after year. Let’s talk about the displays, just a few years ago, the race was to sport a display with higher PPI (Full HD, QHD, 4K). Now it has shifted to the refresh rate. Instead of the standard 60hz, A few phone companies (like Razer and even Apple) started featuring 120hz displays.

Triple Camera setup

LG V40 ThinQ is coming with three camera setup. Maybe Oneplus 6T will also have it. Just watch the above video and you’ll get an idea what a triple camera can do for you.

BTW, If it has a feature to change the image depth the iPhone XS, it’ll be a killer flagship. And that’s what Oneplus is known for.

No Headphone Jack

In late 2016, Carl Pei ran a poll on twitter asking if they want the headphone jack or not. But recently, it’s coming from Oneplus forums that the next Oneplus phone shall now have a headphone jack. The reason is that, that 80+% users have shrunken down to 50%. People are switching to wireless headphones. But don’t worry, Oneplus is also coming up with a USB-C bullets headphone (since everything is going USB-C, a good move?)

Remember Oneplus making fun of iPhone 7 after Apple ditched the jack?

In-Display Fingerprint Sensor and Face Unlock

The company confirmed to CNet that the next big thing 6T is going to feature is Face Unlock.
