OnePlus to launch flagship phone in 5 months; will feature Snapdragon 845

At the same time, they are also in talks with United States telcos to launch their phones under these telcos in hopes that it will bring more awareness to USA customers.

Speaking at CES 2018 with CNET, OnePlus' CEO Pete Lau said that if the right opportunity and timing were to come along, the company would be very happy to experiment in this direction.

OnePlus recently launched their new OnePlus 5T smartphone and now we have details about their next handset, the OnePlus 6.

Lau didn't give too much information on the OnePlus 6, but he did confirm that it will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor. It stated that OnePlus would be debuting the OnePlus 6 smartphone in June this year.

Protests against a set of austerity measures including price and tax hikes swept across Tunisia leaving one person dead. Prime Minister Youssef Chahed called for calm, while at the same time affirming the right to demonstrate in the streets.

Support from US carriers has been an issue for Chinese smartphone brands.

The OnePlus 5T was one of the best smartphones of 2017, and it appears that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer will bank on that success to expand its reach across the world.

The OnePlus 6 could represent a watershed moment for the Chinese firm, as Lau said that the company would begin talks with U.S. carriers this year. The OnePlus 5 was launched in June past year, and it seems the company wants to maintain the launch cycle. While it is true that Lau or OnePlus have yet to name their next flagship offering, based on past experience with the company's nomenclature, we believe that it will be the OnePlus 6. Huawei CEO Richard Yu even went off script at CES 2018 to slam US carriers for refusing to distribute the company's smartphones.

Analysts estimate that 85% to 90% of USA consumers purchase their phones through their carrier, which means that OnePlus is now missing out on this huge segment of the market. Well, we have the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau himself, who has been quoted as saying that the OnePlus 6 is en route even as we read this. As already reported, this deal fell through and the Chinese firm's CEO blasted US carriers for the failed arrangement.
