OnePlus has, over time, managed to remain competitive in the market with increasingly popular smartphones. To attack 2018, the Chinese brand prepared some surprises and launched the new OnePlus 6.
OnePlus was a brand that got all the attention right from the start. The first flagship of the brand, the OnePlus One has met great popularity, much for its price/quality ratio. Over the past few years, the brand has been struggling to maintain the popularity it has gained in the first model, having initially overcome some difficulties with OnePlus 2 and X but managed to grow with the following models.
Following the success of last year’s models, which hit record sales, the Chinese brand today presented its bid for 2018, OnePlus 6.
