If you're looking for a special edition smartphone, like the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, you should consider buying because this will be a limited edition smartphone. However, if you're looking for a flagship smartphone with Snapdragon 855, wait until early 2019 and you will have several options including Samsung Galaxy S10, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, and a OnePlus 5G-ready flagship.
