What will the OnePlus 6 be like? Tough to tell for now, but a move to a 6” screen – the first bump in screen size of the series – is not unlikely, especially if combined with an 18:9 screen and a bezel-less design. If that’s true, we’ll hear from Carl Pei and co. about it early on in the hype cycle.
