The OnePlus 6 is finally upon us. After months of waiting and a host of rumours, speculations and leaks, OnePlus's first flagship of 2018 is all set for its official unveiling in London later today.

The event is scheduled at 5pm BST or 9:30pm IST on Wednesday. The official launch events for China and India will be held on Thursday.

If you are looking to follow the much-anticipated launch in real-time, you can catch the live stream of the event on the official OnePlus website, Facebook page or the YouTube channel. The broadcast will start at 9:30pm tonight.

The OnePlus 6 launch has been one of the most anticipated smartphone releases of the first half of 2018 and here's everything we know about the upcoming smartphone so far.

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
