You might already be aware of the fact that OnePlus is owned by a major Chinese manufacturer named BBK Electronics which makes Oppo and Vivo smartphones as well. All these smartphones are exclusively available in China and India and only one OnePlus has managed to enter the global arena. Though the design style of all these companies is almost identical.
As we all know that Oppo launched its flagship device R11 last year and later on the design of that device was found to be the inspiration for a flagship device from OnePlus i.e. the OnePlus 5.
After that, Oppo launched another smartphone named the Oppo R11s which also became the inspiration for OnePlus’ current flagship device the OnePlus 5T.
And now the leaks about Oppo’s new flagship smartphone, Oppo R15 have started to surface on the Internet. So, the question arises in the mind that, is this the new flagship OnePlus 6? As the OnePlus is yet to announce anything about it.
Coming to the fresh leaks about the R13, it suggests a design which is very identical to the recently launched Apple iPhone X. As per the leaks, the smartphone comes with a bezel-less display along with that ‘notch’, which is holding a front camera and the earpiece grill. The bezels are very thin, just like on the iPhone X.
On the other hand, the rear of the device hints that the company is likely to prefer its old design style, so the horizontally stacked dual-camera setup at the back may stay there.
The Apple has ditched the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone X but the leaks show that this phone will feature a fingerprint reader at the back. Though it also means that the Oppo R15 will not be coming with an on-screen fingerprint reader.
As for other specifications, the smartphone may have Oppo’s VOOC technology for charging. And as per the previous leaks, the device is supposed to run the latest Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColourOS 4.0 out of the box. We can expect that the handset will be equipped with the Snapdragon 670 processor.
The Oppo R15 smartphone will be coming with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded further using an SD card. The smartphone in the leak is shown in three colours like Black, Purple and Pink.
Apart from the mentioned specs, no other details about the specifications of the smartphone are available at present.
Although currently, any information about the other specifications, pricing and availability of the smartphone is not available we can expect that the more details will be revealed when the official launch of the handset comes closer.
Coming back to the highly-anticipated flagship OnePlus 6, as we inspect the leaks about R15, the question arises again, will the OnePlus 6, which is yet to be announced, come with an identical design style?
We can get some idea if we look at the past, which has shown us that the flagship devices from OnePlus had been inspired by the R-series of Oppo smartphones to a great extent.

Though we are discussing the similarities, there could also be one possible difference. Keeping the history of OnePlus in mind, we believe that they will make few changes to their flagship device.
So, the One plus 6 might come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It may feature 8GB or 10GB of RAM along with 256GB of inbuilt storage.
