OnePlus 6 Mod Allows for Stereo Speaker Sound

A lot of people were disappointed with the lack of Stereo Speaker on the OnePlus 6. Now, XDA Senior Member acervenky has created a Mod that uses the earpiece speaker as a secondary external stereo speaker. Sounds Great?

This Mod requires Magisk [ROOT]. Once enabled your OnePlus 6 will use both bottom firing speaker and earpiece speaker to play audio. As per developer, it works flawlessly on NoLimits ROM and partially on stock OxygenOS.

Note: Use this mod at your own risk. Playing excessively loud audio could result in damage to the earpiece. (/XDA)




OnePlus 6 Owners Reporting Rear Glass Cracks

OnePlus 6 Owners Reporting Rear Glass Cracks
OnePlus 6 is one of the strongest smartphones currently on the market, but its elegant design may be vulnerable to spontaneous cracking. According to reports from various OnePlus 6 owners, the rear glass near the phone's volume buttons can shatter easily, even with little to no provocation.

Images of OnePlus 6 with cracked rear glass first popped up on the OnePlus subreddit. User Southernboyj claimed that the rear glass broke by itself. Other OnePlus 6 owner Kannahayabusa12 responded with an image of his OnePlus 6 shattered from the same spot.

Hey guys, just an interesting post. I think the OnePlus 6 back Glass must be exceptionally weak. I've had my phone since launch day, and it's been in a OnePlus Sandstone case since Day 1.

I take it out of the case pretty frequently to clean it. Somehow in the last 24 hours the back Glass cracked without it even being dropped or subject to anything rigerous. It was Sunday so I was just at my house most of the day.

I found another poster on here who's Glass cracked in the same spot (from the volume rocker outward). Wonder if there's some kind of design flaw there?

Hey all, I received my phone Friday along with the nylon case and I've been loving it ever since. I put the phone in the case the second I opened everything and haven't taken it out until today.

I was about to show off the glass back when I pulled the phone out to find that the back had cracked, alot:

It has only been dropped about 3 times because my daughter was watching YouTube videos, but it's only been from the height of the bed or below.

I thought the nylon case would be enough to prevent this but I guess not.

Does anyone know what I can do? I know the warranty only covers defects, so that's not an option. would a repair shop be able to get a replacement back for this?

I have the EXACT same crack in the EXACT same place. Never dropped it, always used the wooden case I bought with the device. Failed batch, perhaps?

The OnePlus 6's possible design flaw affects what is otherwise our favorite Android phone on the market. Thoughts?

Oh, hi there, OnePlus 6!
In 2017, OnePlus skipping the 4 announced OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5. Both the Smartphones received praise from critics and consumers alike for its build quality, software, and camera performance.

This year's OnePlus 6 will be one of the most anticipated phone of 2018, which is rumored to release on 5th May.

Today, a weibo user shared another look at the OnePlus 6' rear and it looks great. From the above and below images, the headphone jack, dual rear cameras are confirmed. The fingerprint sensor is placed just below the flash, looks like a great placement.

Recently OnePlus revealed that the OnePlus 6 would feature a top notch with 19.616mm x 7.687mm size. The Company said that their notch will be bigger than the Essential Phone, smaller than the iPhone X.
Oh, hi there, OnePlus 6!

OnePlus 6: Avengers Edition!!!

OnePlus 6: Avengers Edition!!!
It seems that OnePlus is gearing up to launch the Limited OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition to commemorate the the release of the Avengers: Infinity War. According to OnePlus India's Facebook Video, the company is teaming up with Marvel Studios for the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theaters on April 27 and most likely we'll see the OnePlus 6 make its debut at around the same time.

OnePlus 6 would feature 19:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU, Adreno 630 GPU, 6/8GB of RAM, 128/256GB of internal memory, and Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS.

There's no information whether the device will be limited to the Indian markets, or whether we'll see a global launch. Thoughts?

OnePlus: Let's talk about OnePlus 6 Screen!!!

OnePlus on their Official OnePlus forum explained "Why the OnePlus 6 would feature a notch" and they also answered some of the most frequently asked questions about the OnePlus 6 top notch.
By now, most of you are aware that our next device will feature a cut-out near the top of the display, popularly known as a “notch”. A fiery debate has sparked online, so we wanted to give you guys some insight into our rationale behind this product decision.
According to OnePlus, notch is company’s way of providing more screen real estate to buyers. Through the notch, the company can free up a considerable amount of space near the top of the display, absorbing the notification and status icons.

OnePlus 6's notch measures 19.616mm by 7.687mm and it occupies a minimal amount of space in the top-center part of the display.

At last OnePlus said that their focus is to deliver the biggest and best screen, without compromising on the technology you love. Here are the FAQs that OnePlus answered:

Will the notch cut off my notifications if the status bar reaches a certain width?
OxygenOS will be optimized to work alongside the notch, ensuring you will always be able to view and access all of your notifications.

The notch cuts into the display, so the actual display size is smaller!
You actually get more screen. Thanks to the notch, we have managed to significantly increase our screen-to-body ratio. It’s like booking an airplane seat with extra leg room, which is used to absorb the clock and status bar.

If you’re integrating the front-facing camera, receiver, and LED light in the notch, why do you still need a chin?
A ribbon found at the bottom of each display connects the display to the internal hardware. This connection in itself demands the use of a bottom bezel. Our goal is to maximize the amount of real estate available to the user. So, we decided to reduce the size of the top bezel. The result is the largest viewable area we have ever produced.

The notch ruins my ability to enjoy movies and games. Can’t you block out the notch through software?
We understand the need to tailor your experience to your personal preferences. That’s why we have a compatibility mode on our next device. By setting this mode to individual apps, you are able to black out the sides of the notch when in landscape mode. We have tested compatibility mode with the 1000 most popular apps in the Play Store, and it works wonderfully.



Oh Dear! This is the OnePlus 6 Top Notch!

Oh Dear! This is the OnePlus 6 Top Notch!
In 2017, OnePlus skipping the 4 announced OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5. Both the Smartphones received praise from critics and consumers alike for its build quality, software, and camera performance.

This year's OnePlus 6 will be one of the most anticipated phone of 2018, which is rumored to release in July. OnePlus today exclusively reached out The Verge to let the whole world know that the OnePlus 6 would feature a top notch and yeah we all have to deal with it.

OnePlus also provided the precise measurements for its upcoming notch 19.616mm x 7.687mm. The Company said that their notch will be bigger than the Essential Phone, smaller than the iPhone X.
We saw the implementation [of gestures] on the iPhone. Maybe it would have taken longer if Apple hadn’t done it. Maybe not as fast. But we have access to the roadmaps of all the screen manufacturers, and when they gave us the opportunity to make cutouts at the top of the screen, it just made sense.
At last Pei says that this is company’s way of providing more screen real estate to buyers. So, learn to love the notch.

Yesterday, Evan Blass shared our first rear look at the OnePlus 6 and it looks gorgeous. The device is expected feature 19:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU, Adreno 630 GPU, 6/8GB of RAM, 128/256GB of internal memory, and Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS.


OnePlus 6 Concept Gives a Glimpse of the Future

After seeing last month's OnePlus 6 leak that potentially revealed the design of OnePlus's new flagship for 2018, the concept makers have been busy getting their takes ready. Youtuber Concept Creator and TechnoBuffalo has come up with an exciting new concept of the OnePlus 6.

The phone’s fingerprint scanner is placed on the back, more like the Samsung Galaxy S9. It has a dual camera setup at the rear. If you take a closer look at the phone’s front, you’ll also notice that it has tiny notch, which stores the front-facing camera and some sensors.

The phone they detail features a 19:9 6.3-inch Full HD+ (2280×1080) AMOLED display, 6/8GB of RAM, a 16+20MP shooter, Snapdragon 845, and other miscellaneous top tier specs.

Recently the OnePlus 5T ran out of stock in the Notch American market. The fans of the Chinese smartphone maker who have not bought the OnePlus 5T will have to wait until the launch of OnePlus 6 to get their hands on a OnePlus device.


What about you? Let’s hear your wish list for this year’s OnePlus 6 – does it look like this?

OnePlus 5T cancelled in favour of OnePlus 6

There's no denying the fact that OnePlus is working on next generation Smartphone. Already there are couple of leaks speculating the release of the next OnePlus device.

Back in June, during AMA (Ask Me Anything) event on Reddit, OnePlus revealed that they're considering moving the fingerprint scanner on the back for its next-gen Smartphone. This means that the OnePlus 6 may feature a fingerprint sensor on the back, and technically this will also allow OnePlus to implement the bezel-less display or something like LG G6 to the front.


Additionally, OnePlus also said that their next-gen Smartphone might cost more than $800. OnePlus could have implemented a bezel-less display to the OnePlus 5, but due to lack of resources, the OnePlus 5 uses the same screen as the OnePlus 3T. However, the OnePlus 5 is one of the best Mid-range Smartphone you can get with top-notch specs.

Now, According to the latest rumors OnePlus might skip the OnePlus 5T in favor of OnePlus 6 which is scheduled to release in early 2018 because according to OnePlus there's nothing much for a T version to upgrade.

We already know that Qualcomm isn’t working on any new chipset scheduled to release this year, and this could be a major reason why OnePlus is skipping the OnePlus 5T this year.

It's been just a few days since OnePlus launched its OnePlus 5 flagship smartphone. And now, we have some information regarding the OnePlus 6.

In a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) event on Reddit, OnePlus revealed that they're considering moving the fingerprint scanner on the back for its next-gen Smartphone. This means that the OnePlus 6 may feature a fingerprint sensor on the back, and technically this will also allow OnePlus to implement the bezel-less display or something like LG G6 to the front.


Additionally, OnePlus also said that their next-gen Smartphone might cost more than $800. That said, OnePlus could have implemented a bezel-less display to the OnePlus 5, but due to lack of resources, the OnePlus 5 uses the same screen as the OnePlus 3T.


OnePlus is probably considering moving the fingerprint scanner on the back for its OnePlus 6 or maybe OnePlus 5T and that means we might see some upgrade over the next-gen OnePlus' display. Thoughts?
