guys this isn't legit, don't worry, its all clickbait. Look at the edge of the notch, it looks nothing like the photo they displayed on their OnePlus twitter page.
There is a typo, they should have written "Designed by Apple-Samsung-Oppo".
Ugly, as expected.
It cant get more uglier than this, whats with those thick side bezels....hideous wallpaper doesnt help either. I just hope this is a bad render image and real deal is more refined and immersive.
kerfax, 25 Apr 2018 The notches don't bother me. Glass backs however, suck. They all say premium. Well everyone I... moreThat's what I'm about to do too. Or at least take a Note 4 (an all-rounder with removable battery) with a Tab S2 (Thin and metal!!!) and I'll use that for years to come. Glass phones scream ''Break me''.

I find it funny people dislike the glass back for its poor durability. Perhaps you should dislike your poor ability to take care of your things instead.
will OP have realized that they need to add new features to compete
instead of remaking OPPO R15 with a flagship SoC and a fancy logo };$)
BUT serusly there plan was to redesign (SPOILER ALERT copy from SG S9+;$) the back penal so people won't call it an upgraded R15 the truth is that almost (if not All) of the phones hardware is the same from R15 including the HATED notch
when OPs CEO (I forgot his name it is something like carl pele?) "learn to love the notch" either that he meant that they can't re design the phone and it was TOTALLY the wrongEST reply
or he was SOOO confident that ALL of the haters have changed there mind after the reply he decided to continue with there S9+ IPHONE X hybrid copycat design
then when they realize that there REDESIGNED (tweaked) R15 couldn't trick as they switched to an EVEN $HITIER trick calling there "designing" process as "Honest" ;$)
if it had IP67/68 (NO WEAK A$$ IP54 BULL$HIT "SPLASH" protection XP) and slow mo recording and hide notch option and MOST IMPORTANTLY textured back option instead of the SHINY A$$ DUAL GLASS sandwich >:(
and for carl pele (or what ever your name is) keep you mouth SHUT we are NOT RETARDED
we NEVER BELIVED YOUR BULL$HIT the ONLY ONE how believed it was YOU >:(
This is a tablet, curved screen on top frame is something I never seen in my life. The whole design is ugly imo.
Who will be first to copy Sony's AUBE and 10-bit screen?
Sparkxster, 25 Apr 2018Minimal and beautiful design! Super slow mo feature is a plus. Be nice of they go the Samsung route, and have a trigger box. Makes slow mo so much easier.
kerfax, 25 Apr 2018 The notches don't bother me. Glass backs however, suck. They all say premium. Well everyone I... moreI wholeheartedly agree on the glass back comments. However, it is not always used to include wireless charging. It really is always, in reviews, referred to as a "premium" substance, hence the inclusion. Wireless charging functions fine with other, more robust substances. Look at the Ikimobile devices, most distinctive phones since the Nokia Lumia devices. The cork looks beautiful, and it is possibly my favourite. However, manufacturers can also use polycarbonate. Which happens to be super tough, look at the Lumia 920 or 1020. My 920 is around six years old, still going. Never cracked the screen, and the back is as tough as nails, really. The modern glass slabs are pants, truly rubbish. There is also ceramic, which can be used. Now that is a premium feeling substance

I'm usually a fan of less curves in a phone but seeing as their focus has been to what's under the hood, I'm interested.
When comparing this with previous leaks, it is consistent so for me it must be accurate.
Unfortunately this thing doesn't look too good. Too bad OnePlus, see you next year!
The notches don't bother me. Glass backs however, suck. They all say premium. Well everyone I know that has some type of phone with a glass back, have cracked them. That's not premium to me. Glass back is cheap ass shit. They do it for buzzwords of wireless charging. Fuck wireless charging. Let go back to slow charging from 2013 with wireless, Yeah! Until wireless charging is as fast as fast charging, you can keep your glass backs. No thanks. Glass backs are cheap and cheap for the manufactures. That's why they have pushed glass as premium. Give me a metal or even plastic phone any day. I am so tired of overpriced smart phones. I'm getting a tablet and a dumb phone. Also I hate the weird oblong fingerprint button. The OnePlus 5t and 3t were great. Now they have gone back to making craptastrical phones. Friggin' Chinese design just copies. No innovation.
From the original flagship slayer to now, this phone has a lot of price creep. Interested if this trend will continue or will OnePlus return to its roots/
The front of the device reminds me of Droid Razr M...
