Another OnePlus 6 feature has leaked online -Super Slo-Mo- which refers to the phone’s ability to shoot super slow motion videos without sacrificing on quality. Interestingly, the revelation comes right from the official page of the Indian subsidiary of the Chinese firm.
However, while the page has since been updated to remove the teaser, the same confirms the OnePlus 6 will be able to shoot videos at slow speeds. No other specifications have been revealed though for the phone to match the industry best – read Samsung Galaxy S9 or Sony Xperia XZ2 – the OnePlus 6 will have to record videos at 960fps at the least.
The S9 does the 960fps recording at 720p resolution while the XZ2 tops that with 1080p resolution recording at 960fps. It remains to be seen how the OnePlus 6 fares with respect to the competition, whether it does the industry best 960fps at 720p or at 1080p resolution; or if it has something else to offer. For comparison’s sake, the current gen OnePlus is capable of Slo-Mo videos at 240fps at 720p resolution.
Meanwhile, in another related development, the Chinese company also revealed it has again partnered with Disney to launch Marvel’s Avengers themed special edition version of the phone. The company had also launched a similar special edition version of the OnePlus 5T as well carrying the Star Wars theme.
The rest of the specification of the OnePlus 6 known so far include a Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled to an 8 GB RAM on the top end version. The same will also be offering a class-leading 256 GB storage as well. Also, the phone is confirmed to have a notch as well.
However, not sure how buyers might react to the same, the company also revealed there will be a special setting as well to black out the notch if users so wanted. The notch apart, the OnePlus 6 is also expected to come with gesture support of the likes of the iPhone X.
The OnePlus 6 is confirmed for a global launch on May 16.
