After launching the OnePlus 6 to much fanfare in Mumbai on May 17, OnePlus has officially kicked off the open sale for their newest flagship on Amazon India’s website. The OnePlus 6 had gone on sale on Amazon yesterday, but it was exclusive to Prime members. Today, the open sale for the phone has begun, meaning anyone can buy the phone. The phone as of now is available in two colours; midnight black and mirror black. Both the colour variants are available in 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 8GB RAM/128GB storage variants. The Silk White and Marvel Avenger’s editions of the OnePlus 6 are yet to be made available in the country.
The OnePlus 6 once again sees a minor price hike in comparison to its predecessor which sold at a starting price of Rs 32,990. The OnePlus 6 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at Rs 34,999 while the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs 39,999. For those purchasing the phone on Amazon India, there are a number of offers available. Anyone using an SBI debit or credit card to purchase the OnePlus 6 will get a cashback of Rs. 2000. This offer is valid only for the first week of sale, that is, it expires on May 29 2018. Additionally, OnePlus giving all OnePlus 6 buyers 12-month accidental damage insurance by Servify, an Amazon Prime Video gift card worth Rs. 250, and discounts up to Rs. 500 for purchasing ebooks via Amazon Kindle free of cost. Those who have Idea connections can pick up the OnePlus 6 and get Rs.2000 cashback and dedicated device insurance. OnePlus also announced benefits up to Rs. 25,000 will be available on flight and hotel bookings from ClearTrip to those who buy the OnePlus 6 from Amazon.
While the OnePlus 6 continues to be an Amazon India exclusive, the phone will also be available across select Croma retail outlets around the country. This is the first time a OnePlus smartphone will be sold offline outside of OnePlus’s own stores or pop-up events. The OnePlus 6 is a radical design change from its predecessor, so it makes sense for the company to expand the offline availability so that consumers can themselves experience the new design. In a bid to make the offline purchases equally lucrative, OnePlus is offering deals for those buying the phone from Croma as well. Once again, SBI customers will get a Rs. 2000 cashback and there are cashback offers available through Paytm, Standard Chartered, Axis, ICICI and HDFC Bank.
The OnePlus 6 is powered by the most powerful processor from Qualcomm to date, the Snapdragon 845 paired with a ludicrous 6GB/8GB of RAM. There is also ample storage available too so that users don’t feel the need for a microSD card slot. The phone continues to use an Optic AMOLED panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio and an FHD+ resolution (1080x2280). The primary cameras use Sony’s IMX 519 and IMX 376K sensors with resolutions of 16 and 20 megapixels respectively. Both the lenses have an aperture of f/1.7 while only the primary camera (16MP) has OIS. On the front, there is a 16-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.7, EIS and fixed focus.
