The OnePlus 6 is set to be unveiled later this month, just six months after the 5T went on sale. There’s strong evidence to suggest the new phone will have a glass back — possibly for fast charging. Under the hood, expect 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

Samsung Galaxy Phones

Our favorite phonemaker from South Korea is also preparing something new. While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and S10 will be incremental upgrades, expect to see a folding display on the high-end Galaxy X sometimes between August and next March.
