The company’s founder Pete Lau has gone on to confirm that the invention will be home to a first notch. He also explained as to why the first groove will appear on the model. A teaser from OnePlus went on to reveal that the upcoming smartphone will sport an Alert Slider as well. The slider moves from the left edge to the right corner for the purpose. The Alert Slider will further go on to add a never-seen-before feature to the flagship offering.

We can end up expecting the Android P upgrade much later this year. The smartphone will further be home to a 3,300mAh battery capacity – the same as what had appeared in the OnePlus 5T smartphone. Further reports suggest that the smartphone will go on to support downlink speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and uplink speeds of up to 150Mbps, thus bringing Cat. 16 Gigabit LTE to users.

The smartphone will further be compared to its alternatives such as OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5. The device will feature support for Dash Charging technology. It will also be one of OnePlus’ USPs and selling point.
