4/5/18: Yet more images of the OnePlus 6 have surfaced online showing off what looks like a glass design, adding more weight to the rumours that the handset could support wireless charging. The hands-on pictures, via don’t reveal much else we don’t already know – there’s a display notch, dual cameras on the rear and a redesigned fingerprint sensor underneath. However, a second image shows the handset’s specs – albeit in Chinese – and confirming that the OnePlus 6 will be made available with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage and Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo OS.
When OnePlus 6 launches on May 16 in India, it is expected that the phone will also be unveiled in a special variant called OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition. Now India Today Tech can confirm that the OnePlus 6 special edition is real and that it will come in special retail box that is going to be different compared to the regular OnePlus 6 box. The contents inside the box too are expected to be different compared to what consumers will get in a regular OnePlus 6 retail box.
Interestingly, the box features the same sort of Kevlar finish (see it on the Avengers insignia) with chequered pattern that is also part of the promo that OnePlus revealed a week ago for the Avengers Infinity War Edition. Earlier, the company sold a case in Kevlar finish with OnePlus phones but it looks like the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition may have it as part of design.
Unlike the plain retail box that is expected for the OnePlus 6 regular variant, the phones Infinity War Edition comes with the insignia that Marvel is using for the superhero movie. It is also expected that OnePlus 6 Infinity War will come with a few extra goodies in the box. The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition came with a special case, and you can expect something similar in the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition. The case will draw inspiration from one of the heroes in the Marvel movie, or may be its villain mad Titan Thanos.
Just like the special OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition, launched by OnePlus in collaboration with Disney last year, the OnePlus 6 Infinity War Edition to pays a homage to a movie that is popular among tech-savvy and young OnePlus customers. However, unlike the Star wars phone, which launched weeks after the launch of the regular 5T, this time the special edition OnePlus phone will be launched along with the regular variants.
In terms of features and hardware the OnePlus 6 regular variants and the Avengers Edition are going to be more or less same. But in design there will be differences. While the OnePlus 6 is going to come with glass back, chances are that the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition will come with more exotic finish. The 5T Star Wars Edition had the back finish inspired by that white planet that featured in the final fight in the movie. In the Avengers Infinity War there are several planets on which the Marvel heroes and villains fight and chances are that one of these planets has inspired the finish on the OnePlus 6 special edition. In fact, we probably saw a glimpse of this finish the material seems like Kevlar with chequered pattern in the promo that OnePlus released for this phone around a week ago.
It is also expected that the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition will come with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, is likely to come with a 6.28-inch screen, rear dual-camera system, waterproof design and 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone is likely to be priced somewhere north of Rs 45,000.
To increase the buzz around the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition, the company recently gave away free 6000 tickets to its fans for the Marvel movie. It is expected that as it moves to launch the new phone, OnePlus may bring in more promotional offers related to the special edition of the OnePlus 6.
