Earlier in the week, OnePlus released top-end OnePlus 6 Midnight Black variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage exclusively on Amazon and now, the flagship device can now be purchased off-the-shelf at authorised stores in India.

The company confirmed that OnePlus 6 (8GB RAM+256GB storage) black model will be on OnePlus.in (e-store), official OnePlus Experience Store in select regions and partner retain chains including Tata-owned Croma stores across the country for Rs 43,999.

During the launch time, only the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers limited edition was available in the aforementioned configuration, but it is no longer available for purchase. Now, the customers who have a craving for massive storage, can go for the new Midnight Black model and that too for Rs 2,000 less than the former.

Absolutely yes! OnePlus over the years has been producing cost-effective phones, but it mostly focusing on beefing up internal hardware in terms of RAM, storage, processor and to an extent for the camera also, but lacked premium design. This time OnePlus 6 gets all that and more. Yet, it costs almost half of what rival brands retail their products for.

Midnight Black model comes in glass cover on the back with matte finish saving you time from constant swiping and cleaning to keep the shell from sweaty finger smudges on the rear side. Also, it also comes with the solid metallic rim around the edge offering stability to the structure and also sustains accidental fall and protect internal hardware from damage.

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

It boasts rear dual-camera 16MP+20MP with 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 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.

When is OnePlus 6 Amber Red arriving?

As advertised, OnePlus is releasing OnePlus 6 Amber Red on 16 July in India via Amazon. If you are not interested to buy the black or the white-hued models, the refreshing crimson shade might impress you.
