After months of teasers, the OnePlus 6 has finally been unveiled both globally and in India. The new phone not only comes with a bunch of improvements under the hood, but it also comes with a whole new design. With the OnePlus 6, the company has introduced a glass build for the second time in its history, with the first being the OnePlus X. The company also introduced a new OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Special Edition variant of the smartphone, which features an Avengers there. Let’s take a closer look at the new smartphones.
First off, let’s take a look at the prices of the different variants of the OnePlus 6 smartphone in India.
The OnePlus 6 is available in a total of 3 different colour variants, excluding the Marvel Avengers Special Edition. These are Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and the limited edition Silk White colour variants. The OnePlus 6 Marvel Special Edition features a special carbon fibre pattern on the rear panel, with a prominent Avengers logo on the bottom.
As mentioned before, the OnePlus 6 features a glass rear panel. The glass used here is Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which is also used to protect the display. This should help protect it incase it falls. The glass on the back is also slightly curved.
For the Silk White edition of the OnePlus 6, the company says that it used a “dash of crushed pearl” in order to create the unique effect. The phone also comes with soft gold highlights around the frame, camera module and the OnePlus logo.
With the OnePlus 6, the company has stuck with the dual-real camera setup. This time around, the entire module is centrally placed, just above the fingerprint sensor. The phone offers a combination of 16MP + 20MP cameras.
Turn the phone around, and you’ll notice the new 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone offers a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, and supports sRGB, DCI-P3 colour spaces.
Of course, the most prominent new addition of the OnePlus 6 is the notch, which is fast becoming a trend among smartphone manufacturers. The notch on top of the display houses the earpiece, sensors as well as the 16MP front camera.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is the newest flagship-grade chipset from Qualcomm. The OnePlus 6 is also the first device to bring this chipset to India.
Like all previous Oneplus devices, the OnePlus 6 comes with USB Type-C port. The new device also comes with support for the company’s Dash Charge technology, that claims to offer a day’s power with half an hour of charging.
The OnePlus 6 runs OxygenOS 5.1, which is based on Android Oreo. The phone comes with gesture controls that allow users to return home, open recent apps, browse through your app drawer and more.
The OnePlus 6 Marvel Special Edition comes in a very cool looking box that prominently features the Avengers logo. This should definitely appeal to any Marvel fan.
Besides the phone itself, you get a the Dash Charger, USB type-C cable, a golden Avengers medal and an Iron Man case for the OnePlus 6.
The golden medal is one of a total of six that Oneplus is giving away with the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Special Edition. Each of the medals represents one of the Marvel superheroes. The company has also issued an Infinity Medal Challenge, which asks users to combine all six of the medals. However, the company has not yet announced what the final prize would be.
The Iron Man case for the phone features superhero’s helmet design at the back, with cutouts for the camera and fingerprint sensor. It is reminiscent of the case that came with the Star Wars Edition of phone that features Kylo Ren’s helmet design.
As for the phone self, it comes with a number of Avenger’s themed wallpapers that are exclusive to the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Special Edition. Again, this is similar to what we got with the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition.
The OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Special Edition still comes with a Gorilla Glass 5 rear, but under that is a carbon fiber pattern that sets it apart from the rest of the devices in the OnePlus lineup.
The OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Edition also comes with gold accents on the Alert Slider as well as the OnePlus and Avengers logo.
The OnePlus 6 will be available from May 21 via Amazon, OnePlus Experience Store, and various pop-up events that the company has arranged for. The OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers will be available from May 29 via an open sale.
