Meanwhile, OnePlus is said to begin talks with the United States carriers this year to sell its smartphones.

Like previous iterations, OnePlus 6 is also expected to come with a cost-effective price tag, nearly half of what top branded phones cost. OnePlus 5T was one of the favourite smartphones of 2017, thanks to its killer combination of top-notch features and specifications in a reasonably priced package. Since this is still a speculation, we'll have to wait for any kind of official confirmation. Turns out, the so-called OnePlus 6 will be coming out sometime in June.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the company will announce its next flagship smartphone in the second quarter of 2018, and it will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau made the statement at the Bellagio on Wednesday, saying that talks with major US carriers could begin this year, CNET reports.

OnePlus has traditionally focused a lot on selling its devices through various online websites, including its own.

Lastly, Lau expressed interest in partnering with USA carrier networks to bring the OnePlus flagships to consumers in the States via network contracts.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has seen much success with its latest flagships, and this has raised the bars for the upcoming OnePlus 6.

When the company had newly entered the USA market, it saved money by selling smartphones through invitation system meaning that it manufactured smartphones according to the number of invitations that buyers received. The timeframe for the launch is Q2 which will presumably be June according to the company's launch schedule. The latter also got the Star Wars Edition, Sandstone White and Lava Red variants.

Support from US carriers has been an issue for Chinese smartphone brands. If manages to partner with carriers, it will be a huge boost for the Chinese company, especially considering what happened to the recent Huawei and AT&T deal. The OnePlus 5T is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor clocked up to 2.45GHz.
