With just over a week left for the much-anticipated OnePlus 6 launch in India, rumours and leaks have started coming thick and fast. And the latest one came from none other than Amitabh Bachchan.
Bachchan, who is the OnePlus brand ambassador in India, posted a tweet with two pictures of him and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau along with OnePlus 6 smartphones in their hands.
While the device in Bachchan's hands was a Midnight Black variant of the OnePlus 6, Lau was pictured holding a white version of the smartphone.

This is the first time we have seen any reference of a white version of the device anywhere.

But it seems like Big B's big revelation was an unwarranted one and the tweet was soon pulled down only to be replaced by another one with the same text but a different image — one which revealed much fewer details about the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus 6 Specifications:
The OnePlus 6 is expected to house a 6.28-inch bezel-less display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, which is taller than regular flagships. The device will come with a top notch and will have a screen-to-body ratio of more than 90 per cent.
The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The 6GB Ram variant will come with 64GB and 128GB storage options, while the 8GB version will have 256GB of internal storage.
The device may come with a 12MP + 20MP vertically-positioned dual camera setup on the back. Leaked images also show a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which may rule out the possibility of an under-the-screen fingerprint sensor. The phone will also come with Dash Charging and Qi Wireless charging possibilities. The smartphone will run Android 8.1 Oreo and may pack a 3,450mAh battery.
Tipster Evan Blass also recently revealed that the OnePlus 6 may have a black woodgrain finish version. OnePlus has also tied up with Avengers: Infinity War to launch a limited Avengers-themed edition of the device
OnePlus 6 India Launch and price:
OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be officially unveiled for India at a launch event in Mumbai on May 17.
While we can only expect any clarifications on the pricings post-launch, a recent leak claimed.
OnePlus 6 pricing:
According to latest leaks, the OnePlus 6 64GB and 128GB variants may be priced at Rs 36,999 and Rs 39,999 respectively in India. The premium 8GB/256GB version is expected to retail for around Rs 48,000.
