OnePlus could unveil its next device sometime in June which is when One Plus 5 was launched last year

As Android Headlines points out, however, a successful partnership with USA carriers could also pose potential problems for OnePlus.

Until now, only Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor is the only confirmed specification of the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus CEO did not give out a name for the upcoming phone.

As far as OnePlus 6T is concerned, Lau said he is not 100 percent sure whether the company will be releasing a second smartphone in this year. While such a partnership can pose risks like slow updates, it would allow OnePlus to become known among the mainstream US smartphone market.

Speaking at CES 2018 with CNET, OnePlus' CEO Pete Lau said that if the right opportunity and timing were to come along, the company would be very happy to experiment in this direction.

Oprah vs. The Donald, and The Winner Is…
We can infer from the various things that she's done over the past couple of decades that she's very much a conventional liberal. Media powerhouse Oprah Winfrey may have had the biggest impact out of anyone who spoke at the 2018 Golden Globes .


To no one's surprise, Lau's confirming the Snapdragon 845 SoC for the OnePlus 6 as well, stating that there was no other choice. If OnePlus wants to reach the lucrative market in a powerful way, it has nearly no choice but to partner with a carrier.

The OnePlus 5T that was launched last November comes with a feature called Face Unlock that relies on face recognition to unlock the smartphone. Earlier, the company introduced the Star Wars edition and the Sandstone edition. Striking a deal with a carrier could potentially increase deamand for the Chinese brand, given close to 90 per cent people in the U.S. purchase their smartphones via carriers.

The OnePlus 5T launched in June so the next phone's release following in late Q2 makes a lot of sense.

OnePlus will face challenges in forging a partnership with a USA carrier, though. The Snapdragon 845 CPU was only announced in December 2017 and Samsung is expected to be the first to use the new processor for its Galaxy S9. 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.
