The new variant will be available in India starting July 16. It comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and will be priced at Rs 39,990 which is same as the other variants with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
OnePlus 6 Red colour variant in India will be available from Amazon and OnePlus online store. OnePlus currently sells the flagship in Mirror Black, Midnight Black and Silky White colour variants.
“We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition. We worked to avoid an overly bright red colour while still capturing a sense of self-confidence and positivity. Achieving the amber-like effect took several months to refine and perfect,” said Pete Lau, CEO and Founder, OnePlus while launching the OnePlus 6 Red edition.
The OnePlus 6 Red edition comes with an amber-like effect and the company has utilised a never-done-before technique of optical coating, evaporative film, and six panels of glass. An added anti-reflective layer was used to allow more light to reach the bottom layers of glass before being reflected off the device, creating a sense of depth.
OnePlus 6 recently launched Midnight Black loaded with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage in India for Rs 43,999.
As far as specs are concerned, except for the difference in RAM and storage, the new variant has the same set of specs as the existing variants. The major highlight of the device is the new glass design at the back with company’s horizon line along with an iPhone X-like notch on the front. The phone is equipped with 6.28-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The device is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 609 GPU.

For the front, there is a 16-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with company’s OxygenOS 5.1 running on top of it.
