Ever since the company was founded, back in 2013, OnePlus’ home has been oneplus.net domain, but that has just changed. OnePlus has announced this change on its official forums, as the company’s new home is oneplus.com. You can still head to oneplus.net, but you will immediately be redirected to oneplus.com. In its forum post, OnePlus says that this change was necessary, as the company continues to grow, and that it is a personal milestone for the company.
This change may have surprised some people, but it was expected at some point, as the .com domain is more mainstream than .net. In its forum post, OnePlus also invited users to share their own, personal milestones, and five of them will be randomly selected by OnePlus, and receive a OnePlus Backpack, and a limited-edition notebook. This domain change comes just in time for the arrival of the OnePlus 6, as the device is expected to arrive in the coming weeks. The OnePlus 6 was initially expected to launch in June, but it seems like OnePlus will pull the trigger sooner than that. The company had started promoting the OnePlus 6 a while back, and the OPPO R15 arrived ahead of schedule as well. The company has already confirmed that the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC, and that its most powerful variant will arrive with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage. The company also said that the phone will offer navigation gestures, quite probably identical to the ones available in an Open Beta software build for the OnePlus 5T. The company also teased new functionality for the alert slider, and a display notch will also are a part of the package, that is something the company’s CEO confirmed a while back.
Having said that, if you don’t like the notch, you will be able to hide it via software, though it seems like that functionality may not be available from a get-go, but the company will probably push out an update featuring that feature soon after the OnePlus 6 becomes available. The OnePlus 6 will sport a wood-like back cover, if Evan Blass’ leaked image is to be believed, and the company said that they’re putting great focus on the performance of the OnePlus 6, claiming that the phone will be extremely fast.
