THE ONEPLUS 6, a tasty flagship killer with high-end specs that arrived last month, has been saving a stunning new look for this week. As promised at launch, a new Silk White model joins the existing Mirror Black and Midnight Black variants tomorrow (June 5), and it's the most eye-catching of the lot. OnePlus claims the new design packs "pearl powder" to create a shimmering effect – which makes it sound like a fabric softener rather than a smartphone. But we've seen the device in the flesh, and it's a stunner. If you haven't already snapped up the OnePlus 6, now may be the time to seriously consider it. Because although the existing black models were shiny enough, they weren't going to draw eyeballs like the Silk White supremo. And attention is what you want when you buy a new phone right? Okay, so it's what's on the inside that counts (kind of).

Oneplus 6 smartphone
OnePlus is back with its best-ever device: the OnePlus 6, a £469 underdog with specs to match its pricey foes. The emphasis is squarely on performance this time round, with design flourishes pinched from Samsung and Apple. The end result is a zippy device that’s ideal for everyday app use and hardcore gaming, but a mixed bag elsewhere. It looks like an iPhone X, thanks to the notch at the top, which is quickly becoming the rage on Android phones cheap and pricey. The premium feel extends to its all-glass design – a first for the Chinese startup – with Galaxy S9-style curved edges to top it off. And if you decide to toggle off the notch, it ends up looking even more like Samsung's flagship. OnePlus 6 specsThe tech specs in detail...

IF YOU'RE on the hunt for a new smartphone, you'll soon have another tantalising candidate to consider: the OnePlus 6. The flagship killer lands in the UK on Tuesday, May 22 with the Samsung Galaxy S9 squarely in its sights. Both are Android handsets with matching looks, but that's where the similarities end. So which one deserves your hard-earned dosh? Here's a quick guide to the two handsets. OnePlus 6 – what you really need to know The OnePlus 6 is the first OnePlus to pack an all-glass back and its 6.28-inch fullHD AMOLED display is also the biggest ever for the brand. That makes it about the same size as the Galaxy S9+. What's more, it comes with the lower price tag we've come to expect from OnePlus. At £469 for the 64GB storage model, the smartphone is significantly cheaper than its flagship rivals. As is fast becoming the norm, the new blower trims down the borders (although it still doesn't manage to pull off the same all-screen front as the iPhone X).
