Where everyone is waiting for OnePlus 6 launch, the company have some other plans too. OnePlus on Wednesday revealed that its next smartphone will have an iPhone X-like notch, it might have surprised many fans. But now, the company has launched a new teaser showcasing its own cryptocurrency. As we know Bitcoins was a hype for a while in 2018, many big companies have already jumped on the bandwagon. Also, OnePlus may unveil its own cryptocurrency initiative – perhaps a secure locker on the phone. However, there is a chance that the teaser could also be an early April Fool’s prank by the company.
But we also know that OnePlus is the company who likes to do April Fool’s pranks. In a 26-second video titled “Change is coming” has suggested a cryptocurrency related announcement is about to take place in coming days. “Reimagine one of the most fundamental elements of our everyday lives – currency.” Said company’s co-founder, Carl Pei. Also, a few seconds into the video, a text says “Blockchain Meets Never Settle.”
You can also see a video on their Twitter handle along with the caption “it’s not a coin toss. It’s a better way.” At the end of the video, you can see a spinning gold-colored coin with a OnePlus logo on one side and the face of Carl Pei, on other. Interestingly, the coin comes with the text “E PLURIBUS PEI-UM which is similar to the traditional motto “E Pluribus Unum” in the US.

But, we cant trust this very much as previous examples like a “Game Changer Drone”, and “Dash Energy Drink” are enough examples that suggest that the announcement has been done in jest in time for April Fool’s Day.
On the other hand, OnePlus is expected to launch its latest smartphone – OnePlus 6 in Q2 this year. While there have been several leaks and rumors surrounding the handset, the company has officially confirmed that it will join the industry trend of “notch” popularised by Apple and even provided an image of how the notch will look on its next flagship alongside exact dimensions
