Eight pop-up stores are starting their operations throughout India as of today, being set to open in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad, and Ahmedabad. Ordered units will start shipping no later than tomorrow, though the pop-up stores in question will already be offering the OnePlus 6 as of today, both in India and many other parts of the world.
Originally announced last week, the OnePlus 6 is the most powerful smartphone ever released by the Shenzhen, China-based mobile company, boasting Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chip said to offer an unprecedented level of performance and energy efficiency. The device features a 6.28-inch display panel with an FHD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio which comes down to an 18:9 (2:1) image format when not accounting for the screen cutout at the top. A dual-camera setup is also part of the package, sporting a 20-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel one, with the display notch of the OnePlus 6 housing another 16-megapixel module. The OnePlus 6 runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based OxygenOS and is powered by a 3,300mAh battery.
