“Tickets for “The Speed You Need”, the OnePlus 6 launch event, ended in less than 10 hours. More than 1,000 tickets were sold in record time for the London event after sales had opened in the morning.”
As for specifications, the OnePlus 6 is confirmed to arrive with the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of inbuilt storage.
