The new Crimson-hued OnePlus 6 looks stunning and visually appealing. It boasts amber-like effect created through expert craftsmanship and material design, the company claims.
To attain the perfect red colour, OnePlus said it used a never-done-before technique, which utilizes optical coating, evaporative film, and six panels of glass. An added anti-reflective layer was incorporated to allow more light to reach the bottom layers of glass before being reflected off the device, creating a sense of depth. A translucent orange layer intermix with the red base layer to achieve a radiant glossy red, unique to OnePlus.
The company has also given quite a good attention to detail in terms of other aspects of the devices including the metallic red shimmer coupled with the red, mirror-like fingerprint sensor that elegantly contrasts with the silver camera lens accent.
OnePlus 6 flaunts a 6.2-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen with 19:9 aspect ratio. It features Apple iPhone X-like notch on top of the display, which houses a 20MP sensor with face unlock capability.
On the rear side, OnePlus 6 sports a glass cover on top of the metallic shell with a special coating on top to sustain accidental water splashes and also the mild rains.
It features rear dual-camera 16MP+20MP with an F1.7 aperture in the centre and a fingerprint sensor below it for easy access to the finger to unlock screen and also act as a shutter button to take a selfie.
