    I've never come across a company that has come out and confirmed leaks months before the official release of a device. Not just confirmed, but even explain the reasons behind their decisions. Don't know if its a good thing or not, but i am certainly impressed by their candor.

    Man, OnePlus just became so predictable. I bet they will also hike the price up to justify the "innovation". If you can't reduce the chin, don't bother introduce the notch.

    OP6 won't be having equal bezels at top and bottom. It is going to have a chin at bottom. And there will be that ugly notch at the top. So, bottom bezels are not reached by OnePlus. Only Apple has reached the bottom bezels completely. I won't mind if it takes time, like a year or two, but having a small top bezel like they had for OnePlus 5T looks much better, imho. Now, just imagine OnePlus 5T without a chin, and just having that top small strip of bezel which houses every sensor, earpiece, camera. Heck, you can even have dual cameras on the front if you want to implement them.

    Technology needs innovation. And here, almost every manufacturer is copying Apple like a sheep! That's what I hate about it. Apple had a reason to include the Notch, even though it looked ugly. They removed the chin. They had Face ID sensors on the top. At least, that notch had some reasons to exist. I don't need that extra 2-3% screen on the top with that notch. Rather than that, remove the chin and give me that extra 7-10% screen there! I'm fine with the small strip of bezel at the top. (The one like that on OnePlus 5T or Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+)

    The reason I didn't buy a iPhone X is because of that ugly notch now one plus is doing it looking for a new brand

    Bye Oneplus! My first was the 5t and am I glad I got it! Let Apple eradicate the notch, I will then contemplate on Op6T or Op7 because surely there will ne substantial logic then behind not having it from Carl Pei

    I have lost all interest in upgrading my 3t any time soon. The Samsung Galaxy S9+, including the retarded Bixby button is more tempting than a Oneplus 6. I just don't care for the notch. Maybe if it has a higher resolution display AND micro-sd or sim in the second slot... Then I will MAYBE want the iPhone copycat. The Oneplus 5t looked better. End Rant.

    And the headphone jack trend? They are between the last who keep it, so stop crying.

    Not sure why Carl is implying it's OP's idea to have a notch on the OP6, as surely all they've done is copy parent company's OPPO's latest smartphone design? Another nothing level the OP6 seems to offer little over the 5T, no waterproofing, no wireless charging, no front screen FP sensor etc, just an upgraded SoC and a damn notch!

    notch is serving a purpose.
    but the chin is still there.
    they could not figure out how to remove it.
