The OnePlus 6 has recently been released in some parts of the world, including North America, Europe, and India. It’s also coming to the Philippines at a later, unconfirmed date, per official local distributor Digital Walker.
The retailer has, in fact, opened registrations for the Android flagship. And although signing up won’t translate to having a unit reserved in your name when it becomes available in brick-and-mortar locations, it does put you on a mailing list that ensures you will be one of the first to hear about the phone’s availability in the Philippines.
Digital Walker’s OnePlus 6-related announcement
As for the OnePlus sequel itself, you’re looking at a notch phone with an OLED screen; top-shelf internals; and dual back-facing cameras that are engineered to take great shots in low light. It also ships with a near-stock version of Android 8.1 Oreo for a smooth and responsive experience. It’s even one of the smartphones that are eligible for the Android P Beta Program.
