OnePlus 6 specs confirmed: will it still remain at $500

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed some of the rumored specs for the OnePIus 6. In a post on the website, lau mentioned that they were choosing the best hardware in the market. “To create this higher standard, we start with the best hardware:
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Choosing the best hardware is the easy part, the real challenge is in making the best hardware perform in ways that adds value to the experience of the user.”
