The global launch of OnePlus 6 is scheduled for 16th May, while in India the launch event is on 17th May. Since OnePlus 6 users will be able to install Android P Beta on their devices, this would also imply that OnePlus will be adding Project Treble support to its upcoming flagship smartphone. Meanwhile, OnePlus 6 buyers interested in trying the latest Android release can visit the company's dedicated webpage. Earlier, Google had published a timeline showcasing the release track for Android P. The next Developer Preview 3 with final APIs is expected to be announced in June and the final release may happen Q3 this year. The Developer Preview of Android P is likely to contain bugs and issues, which is why it's advisable to go for the beta update only if you are ready to compromise the system stability.
In addition to OnePlus 6, Google has announced that the Android P beta will be made available on other phones. Thanks to Project Treble, Android P beta will be available to few other devices other than Pixell.
The company did not confirm if it was referring to Android P Beta program or the official Android P update for OnePlus 5 and 5T users.
Commenting further on the announcement, Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, stated, "By empowering and trusting in our community we learned users want a fast, smooth, and clean user experience - something we call 'burden-less.' Beyond building the best possible Android phone, we work to provide more value to users by ensuring the smartphone experience is not dominated by bloatware and intrusive notifications". In early 2015, OnePlus launched Oxygen OS, its refined version of stock Android that retains a pure but fine-tuned experience.
OnePlus 6 was spotted on Geekbench with model number A6003. While OnePlus has confirmed a lot of specifications and features of the OnePlus 6, the latest developments come courtesy Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood actor and brand ambassador of OnePlus.
OnePlus is known for its ability to roll out consistent software updates. It's built a name for itself ever since it launched the OnePlus One back in 2014 and has grown significantly in recent years.
The OnePlus 6 is rumoured to sport a 6.28-inch full-HD+ display with an 18:9 or 19:9 aspect ratio.
