American e-commerce giant Amazon is all geared up to kick off the Amazon Prime Day sale later today in India.OnePlus in collaboration with its e-retail partner is releasing the flagship OnePlus 6 Red edition for the first time in India. It will come with 8GB RAM+ 128GB storage for Rs 39,999 from 12 pm onwards.

As part of the promotional launch offer, prospective consumers are entitled to get an additional discount up to Rs 14,000 via exchange deal. Additionally, buyers can claim Rs 1750 off on the device, if they pay through HDFC debit and credit cards. Reliance Jio is also offering Rs 500 worth 4G data internet, as well.

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.

Other stipulated specifications include 6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB/256GB storage, Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.1, a 3,300mAh battery with new Dash Charge technology and support Bluetooth v5.0, NFC (Near Field Communication) and other standard connectivity features.
