Popular Chinese phone-maker OnePlus just dropped a new teaser on social media hinting at the upcoming launch of a new smartphone next week.

As per the official OnePlus teaser on the official YouTube channel, the company is slated to announce a new OnePlus 6 colour variant on July 2 and going by the crimson theme of the short video teaser, it is most likely to be the red.

It can be noted that the company had offered the predecessor OnePlus 5T in Lava Red during Valentine's Day weekend earlier this year. According to the company, OnePlus 5T Lava Red was unique compared to other colour variants, as it underwent additional procedures to get its bright crimson colour.

Manufacturing the phone in the signature red hue needs a specific combination of temperature, consistency and baking time with less than 0.01 percent variation. Additionally, it requires two anodic oxidation processes, using double blasting and an AF coating, to ensure the texture and feel.

We believe the new OnePlus 6 might also come in Lava Red colour undergoing similar treatment and like the previous time, it is likely to cost the same as the generic models. Considering different RAM+Storage configuration available in the market, it will cost anywhere between Rs 34,999 and Rs 43,999.  

With the announcement, OnePlus 6 will be offered in five colours—Mirror black, Midnight black, Silk white, Marvel Avengers edition with smoothly textured shell, and now the new Red.

However, the design language and the internal hardware will remain the same as other OnePlus 6 variants.

OnePlus 6 flaunts a 6.2-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen with 19:9 aspect ratio. It features an Apple iPhone X-like notch on top of the display, which houses a 20MP sensor with facial recognition unlock capability.

On the rear, 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.

The phone features rear dual-camera 16MP+20MP with an F1.7 aperture in the centre and a fingerprint sensor below for easy access 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.
