The OnePlus 6 is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, which is comprised of an octa-core Kryo 385 CPU and the Adreno 630 GPU. The handset sports a 6.28-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2280 by 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The device has a dual rear camera setup, which is equipped with a 16-megapixel RGB sensor and a 20-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens. The front-facing selfie shooter, on the other hand, sports a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture size of f/2.0. To keep its lights on, the OnePlus 6 includes a 3,300mAh capacity battery and the device supports a proprietary fast charging technology, dubbed Dash Charge.
The OnePlus 6 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo pre-installed, although the device maker's proprietary skin, OxygenOS 5.1, runs on top of Google's operating system. The software skin adds a number of useful features including the Face Unlock functionality, which is capable of recognizing the user's face and unlocking the device in 0.4 seconds. However, users have the option to unlock the smartphone using the fingerprint scanner located on the rear panel of the handset. The OnePlus 6 also supports connectivity features like Bluetooth 5.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and the handset can accept two SIM cards at the same time.
