The OnePlus 5T that was launched last November comes with a feature called Face Unlock that relies on face recognition to unlock the smartphone. At the same time, they are also in talks with United States telcos to launch their phones under these telcos in hopes that it will bring more awareness to USA customers.
Lau didn't give too much information on the OnePlus 6, but he did confirm that it will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor. If OnePlus smartphones will be distributed through a carrier, the brand has the potential for massive sales because of its bang-for-the-buck products.
Additionally, Lau stated that "he wasn't 100 percent sure if OnePlus would sell a second phone in 2018".

It is possible that given OnePlus doesn't have access to the same amount of resources that companies like Apple or Samsung that they are being more selective of what they release, choosing to focus on one handset instead of multiple.
Apart from the upcoming launch, Lau also said OnePlus will start talking to US-based telecom carriers this year in order to strike a distribution deal.
Last year, OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 5 in the month of June. Hence, selling its phones through carriers will certain allow OnePlus to increase its market share in the U.S. "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment", Lau added. If they get succeed, then definitely OnePlus' sale will boost even higher in the US. Huawei was all set to announce the Mate 10 Pro at the CES 2018 in partnership with AT&T as its first carrier phone for the US, but the latter pulled out from the deal right before the event due to some US-China issues. But that may soon change as OnePlus plans to begin talks with carriers this year.
