OnePlus launched its new flagship smartphone and a successor to last year’s OnePlus 5 smartphone with OnePlus 5T, a couple of months ago. The OnePlus 5T has set a number of benchmarks in the technology market as it’s company’s most advanced Android smartphone studded with all the latest high-end features. Today, the CEO of OnePlus has announced that the new OnePlus 6 smartphone to launch in the coming June month.

The headset is scheduled to launch in the second half of the June month in this current year, 2018.
Unfortunately, the CEO doesn’t reveal anything about the official name of this upcoming flagship smartphone, however we could expect it to be called OnePlus 6. In fact, all the tech enthusiasts and other resources also revealed that the phone is going to be a OnePlus 6. So for now, we can call it OnePlus 6. The CEO will confirm its name very soon.
Additionally, the CEO has also denied to speak about the second smartphone for this year which would be the OnePlus 6T. He doesn’t speak even a word about launching its second device for this year. However, we could expect from the giant to come up with its successor as well around the end of this year.

If we talk about the previous smartphones, OnePlus launched its first smartphone, OnePlus in the market. After that, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 and the latest, OnePlus 5T smartphone. With respect to the previous devices, we can assume that there will be a second variant of the phone also hitting the market some time this year.
Furthermore, the CEO seems to be happy to bond a partnership with the carriers of the United States. Yes, he has added that, “If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we’ll be very happy to experiment”. So there will be the OnePlus smartphones running on the popular carriers in the United States. There is still no any confirmation on this as the CEO has not spoken anything further on the availability of this phone in the US with carrier options.
If we talk about the US, it is world’s best technology market where most of the new smartphones launch first. Over 80% smartphones consumers like to go with contractual basis when it comes to purchase a new smartphone. So OnePlus is eyeing to merge with the US carriers, so that they can sell out more number of smartphones in the United States. The giant is losing millions of dollars as it doesn’t offer the phone to purchase through any carriers. With this partnership, they will be able sell more millions phones.
