Written by Gina Stephens


Android smartphone makers OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be arriving on 16 May 2018 and along with the launch announcement, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has shared some of the form elements and influences behind the new camera phone. 

In a blog post, published in the OnePlus forum, Pete said the new OnePlus 6 will own a glass design and still feature the signature horizon line and curve shape seen in other OnePlus smartphones as they are an distinguished element of the company's design ethic. 

The OnePlus design team tested over 70 glass prototypes sooner than selecting the best one for the OnePlus 6 smartphone which the Chinese company want to have a 'premium feel'.



In the blog post, Pete has reinforced that the glass back on the OnePlus 6 contains five printed layers of Nanotech Coating, a first in the smartphone industry, as most smartphones with binoculars backs use just 3 Nanotech Coatings. 

"We applied 5 layers of Nanotech Coating instead of 3, even though the grade of separation between each layer is extremely subtle and tough to discern. However, the additional layers give the back of the device a stronger imitation of depth that our most demanding users will surely appreciate," says Pete. 

There is a photo of the new OnePlus is a Shenzhen based Chinese smartphone manufacturer founded by Pete Lau (CEO) and Carl Pei in December 2013 6 on the blog put but it only shows a corner of the device so there's not much to go on. However, it does show a device with a purple tone to it so perhaps this resolve be one of the colour options available. The other image, shown above, is a sketch of phone designs.
