"The brief I got from OnePlus expressed the need for a more clean, yet artistic OnePlus approach", Olsson explains.
Except for the mid-range OnePlus X from 2014, all the predecessor OnePlus flagship phones came with full metallic chassis.
O2 director of product and category management Magnus McDonald said: "As the exclusive United Kingdom partner for OnePlus we are really excited to be part of another fantastic launch, this time, of the OnePlus 6". The OnePlus 6's AMOLED panel survives about 20 seconds of the flame before being permanently marred, which isn't unexpected.
Another key feature of the OnePlus 6 is the fast charge that OnePlus claim can last users an entire day off of just half an hour charge.
It goes on sale on May 22 at the OnePlus website. Customers wanting to spread the costs can grab the 64GB version for £50 per month over a two-year contract, with a initial payment of £9.99.
The OnePlus 6 will be available to buy from OnePlus' exclusive United Kingdom retail partner O2 with prices starting from £40 per month depending on data plan.
Just about everything, it seems. This happens to be the same score as the one that the OnePlus 5T achieved. The feature makes the camera's housing "a little thicker", but stabilised 4K video footage and improved low-light image quality will no doubt be a hit with consumers. They look awesome on iPhone X - any every other smartphone, for that matter.
What do the critics think?
OnePlus had a global launch event yesterday to announce the arrival of the OnePlus 6 smartphone.
More than 1,500 fans and media attended the global launch of the OnePlus 6 at the Copper Box Arena in London.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the OnePlus 6 also has 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM.
