One of the devices that we are most looking forward to seeing is the new OnePlus range top, he OnePlus 6 . The Chinese firm is a specialist in waking hype in the Android community, something that has been doing from the very OnePlus 1, and for its new flagship was not going to be less. The firm has already given us an aperitif with the first video-teaser of the terminal , in addition to confirming one way or another that this would take notch . It is precisely the design of what we are going to talk about today, and that is Pete Lau, co-founder of the company , has given us new details in a post published in the forums of the firm.

In the publication , which Lau has titled “Our approach to honest design” , we talk about the philosophy that the company continues in the field of industrial design . Thus, the brand affirms that “Honest design will perfectly serve the function of the product and even incorporate the product itself, so that from the moment you hold it, the device” will speak for itself. ”

Pete Lau sheds some light on this matter a few paragraphs later, when he says that “A good design, really good, does not deliberately pursue the exaggeration of the external form. In fact, it can even be extended to a prioritization of the internal form: the material, crafts and small details . After this, Pete Lau tells us about how the OnePlus 6 will be, confirming in some way the materials in which it will be built and some “small details”.

On the one hand, from OnePlus confirm that the OnePlus 6 will keep the slight curvature of its edges (which they call “Horizon Line”) and that It will be built in glass , something normal in the high-end Android. Why crystal? According to Lau, to provide the user “A” sense of value “and a” premium feeling at hand ” . An interesting detail is that This crystal will have five layers of Nanotech Coating instead of three, something quite new in the smartphone industry.

Finally, and this is pure speculation, if we look at the photos that accompany the text body we see that the OnePlus 6 would not have, in principle, 3.5mm jack and that the USB connection, as it comes to be normal in the company, will be USB type C . Another point is the color, a purple / dark pink which, at least at first glance, seems quite interesting. We will be attentive to new leaks and details.
