OnePlus 6 will feature a glass back, according to CEO

OnePlus 6 Here’s everything we know about new One Plus smartphone so far

The hype train continues to roll for OnePlus, which is in full teaser mode for its upcoming flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6. OnePlus has used ceramic and glass before for the back panel so we don't know what will be the new one.

Follow the Source link to read Laus thoughts on industrial design and how he and his team applied it to the OnePlus 6.

With a glass rear panel, it's likely that the OnePlus 6 will feature the type of gradient finish seen on Huawei's P20 and P20 Pro handsets, and the upcoming Honor 10.

"In addition to retaining the horizon design, we've also tried to incorporate glass materials on OnePlus 6".


Talking about the reason behind the use of glass back, Pete Lau, CEO and Founder of OnePlus said, "OnePlus 6's glass design is centred around creating a "sense of value" and "premium hand-feel". The OnePlus 6's glass back will feature five layers of water-resistant Nanotech Coating, which is apparently an industry first. Instead, Lau highlighted less tangible, more subjective benefits-like that "glass communicates a transparent, bright, and pure feeling". However, the additional layers give the back of the device a stronger impression of depth that our most demanding users will surely appreciate.

OnePlus 6 will be launched next month.

As Android Central notes, the OnePlus 6 won't be the first time OnePlus has opted for a glass back; the company incorporated glass into the design of the OnePlus X. This could hint that the company is taking a similar approach to Apple in its design-led focus, however it doesn't offer much beyond this tidbit of information.
