OnePlus has announced a new red variant of the OnePlus 6 smartphone, and it’s touted to be the company’s most luxurious color yet.
The said device initially has three color variants namely Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Silk White (limited edition) but today, the company’s CEO announced the red color variant for their latest flagship device. Due to the popularity of the Lava Red edition of the predecessor OnePlus 5T, the company decided to throw a red variant that’s said to have a clear quality similar to that of a red amber, but possess “an enduring appeal that will last for years to come.”
This new red finish is said to be achieved by using a new film coating process by applying an evaporated layer of brightening film, resulting in the clear, glossy look and feel this variant has.
Aside from that, most of the specifications remained the same. The OnePlus 6 Red retains the same 6.28-inch Full Optic AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 16MP + 20MP rear cameras, 16MP front camera, and 3,300mAh battery. The only difference is that this variant will only be available for the 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage setup.
