OnePlus is ready to introduce its latest flagship.

Following several weeks of teasers put out on social media, the OnePlus 6 has finally been scheduled for a global debut on Wednesday, May 16. OnePlus will host the launch event in London and stream its announcement around the world. Soon after, the OnePlus 6 should go up for pre-order and ship within days.

Check out the teaser video revealing the launch date:

Like in the past, OnePlus will offer a live-stream for those who can’t attend the launch event. So you won’t miss out on every detail regarding the OnePlus 6 getting explained. OnePlus will, of course, talk at length about its self-perceived underdog status before diving into specifications.

The teaser doesn’t show us any noteworthy part of the phone, but we do get some words. OnePlus flashes “developed,” “refined,” and “together with you” in its video. Then the brand proclaims the OnePlus 6 is faster than fast. Who knows what that really means, but it’s already been confirmed that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will run the show. The OnePlus 6 should be incredibly snappy with that component inside.

Other confirmed or rumored specs include a notch at the top of the display, a dual-camera setup on the back, and an all-glass design. With the OnePlus 6, the brand is ready to go further into the high-end segment and possibly raise the price to an eye-popping level.

If you’re in London when the launch event is set to go down, you can purchase a ticket to be in attendance. OnePlus is selling tickets for £16 until Friday before raising the price to £30. Beyond getting to use the OnePlus 6 before anyone else, OnePlus is also giving all attendees a gift bag.

The launch event kicks off at 12:00PM ET, and we’ll have coverage on the OnePlus 6 immediately following its announcement.
