After the Marvel Avengers edition, popular smartphone maker OnePlus released the much-awaited OnePlus 6 Silk white edition in India.

The new OnePlus 6 offers several unique features compared to the generic black models. It comes with a smooth white texture on top of the shell and to attain such glossy feel, the company claims to have incorporated six different layers of glass into the device. The device has also been polished to create a restrained elegance in both looks and feels and also the subtle shimmering effect is achieved using a sprinkling of pearl powder, OnePlus claims.

On the sides, the company has used gold-plated rims for the fingerprint sensor, camera rings and textured alert slider on the right side.

Under-the-hood, the premium OnePlus device comes packed with the Snapdragon 845 octa-core, Qualcomm's latest and the most powerful processor to date. It is backed by sumptuous 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. Rest of the internal specifications such as camera, battery, battery and display are the same as the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6 sports 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.

It boasts rear dual-camera 16MP+20MP with an F1.7 aperture in the centre and a fingerprint sensor below it for easy access to unlock the screen and also acts as a shutter button to take a selfie.
