OnePlus 6 Leak

The case for the OnePlus 6 having a notched display has gotten even stronger as a new report delves into the company’s OxygenOS Open Beta 4 software to dig out the truth. This comes after a set of photos revealed a cutout at the top and a leaked AnTuTu benchmark screenshot further confirmed this design choice.

OnePlus recently rolled out OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 5T which includes an update to Android 8.1 Oreo. XDA Developers took a look inside the firmware and found evidence of the OnePlus 6’s codename being “enchilada.”

OnePlus has been giving its upcoming smartphones fast-food related codenames for years now, stretching back to the OnePlus One’s “bacon” and the OnePlus 5T’s “dumpling” internal names. The Settings APK of the beta contains references to enchilada, dumpling, and cheeseburger (the OnePlus 5).

It’s within reason to conclude that enchilada is the OnePlus 6. The company’s probably working on the smartphone right now, so it would make sense for the handset to be popping up in its software. As for the notch, the publication found an image called “screendecor_up_img_enchilada_1″ which features a cutout at the top besides 2 ears.

It’s likely this is an overlay being used by OnePlus to test apps. Of course, this can’t be taken as definitive proof. The hands-on photo seen up top does match it though, so the plot is certainly thickening. We’ll keep an eye out for more proof of the OnePlus 6’s iPhone X-inspired design till the phone gets an official announcement in June.
