The front-facing camera stays the same with 16MP. The company has used the same Sony IMX371 sensor along with f/2.0 aperture in the OnePlus 6.

New: OnePlus 6 sports glass back design

OnePlus 6 has a different build as compared to OnePlus 5. It now has a glass-back finish unlike pure metal, which gives it a sense of premium-ness.

New: OnePlus 6 is splash-proof unlike the previous-generation OnePlus 5T
OnePlus is finally bringing some level of water resistance with OnePlus 6. The device is splash proof so you won’t need to worry while carrying it in rain. Of course it is still not possible to dunk it underwater.

Old: No wireless charging, comes with Dash Charging tech as in OnePlus 5T

Despite sporting a glass back panel, OnePlus 6 still misses on wireless charging tech, something that is present in most of the flagship smartphones these days.

Old: Same 3300mAh battery capacity

The inbuilt storage options stay the same with OnePlus 6 -- 64GB and 128GB. And as before, there's is no microSD card support.

The processor of the OnePlus 6 is supported by the 8GB and 6GB RAM options, which is the same as that with the OnePlus 5T. While the 6GB RAM will come with 64GB storage model, the 8GB version will be available with the 128GB model.

Old: Both run on Android Oreo based OxygenOS out of the box

Both OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 5T run on the same Android operating system – 8.1 Oreo. While the former comes with Android Oreo-based OxygenOS out of the box, the latter model received it as an update recently. So both should be quite similar in usage.
