The release of the much anticipated OnePlus 6 is almost coming up and with each day that passes fans are more and more excited to get their hands on what some call “one of the best smartphones of the year”. And they are not wrong when they say that.
The phone does come with specs that would get anyone excited to see how they perform and with features that leave us bewildered. Since the launch date is set on the 16th of May at an event in London, with other launch events happening the next day in China and in India, we think that this is the right time that we talk about this phone and what it can offer.
Of course, we cannot leave out the teaser that OnePlus gave us for the limited edition phone for which they have partnered up with Marvel for their latest movie. Read more if you want to hear what we know and recount the mind-blowing features that this smartphone will have.
Infinity War teaser
It looks like OnePlus is not afraid to showcase their limited edition phones and such is the case with the one for OnePlus 6. A picture has emerged online recently, coming from the OnePlus Weibo account, showing us what the retail box is going to look like.
From what we have seen, the box is dark grey and features the Avengers logo on the front in a lossy format (the logo that we have seen on a number of posters that market the recent release of Marvel’s latest movie, Avengers: Infinity War) with marvel and OnePlus’s logos on the sides. From what we have seen in the picture the logo does look like it has a Kevlar-like design. Could this be a hint for what the case of the phone is going to be like for this limited edition? Maybe.
Now, OnePlus is not partnering up for the first time with another company in order to bring out a limited edition phone. They have done the same thing for OnePlus 5T when they partnered up with Star Wars in order to bring out a limited edition phone that was inspired by the latest Star Wars movie at the time. The same thing could be said about Marvel as well.
If this was not enough, they have also offered 6 thousand tickets to Avengers: Infinity War which were all snatched up within the first 30 minutes of them being up, showing that OnePlus fans will not shy away from enjoying the finer things in life, even if we are now only talking about tickets to a much-awaited movie.
What’s in the box?
Now, the size of the box is a bit too big to contain just the smartphone so we are guessing that there are other goodies inside, maybe exclusive merchandise with the Avengers design. We think that the rear end of the phone could possibly have the same Kevlar design that the same Kevlar like design that we have seen on the box.
We are not ruling out there being phone cases in the box that are inspired by Marvel’s recent blockbuster. Perhaps they are inspired by some of the biggest characters that take part in the movie, our guesses being either Captain America, Ironman or even the Guardians of the Galaxy. Who knows what else is hidden behind those cardboard walls? We will have to wait and see.
This limited edition will only be available via Amazon India so if you are not from India then it may be more difficult for you to get your hands on the limited version. Also, remember that it will always be first come first served.
Since we now have your attention, we would also like to talk about the specs that this phone has. For starters, we are going to see a beautifully designed screen, with a 19:9 display and the top-notch design as well.
OnePlus decided to lay all his cards on the table when it came to the work that they have put into their cameras. And they were not afraid to show us how good they are either. How did they do that? Well, in a never before seen turn of events, Vogue India’s May edition’s cover was shot with this smartphone. A picture speaks a thousand words and such is the case with this cover shot as well since we can see the clarity and the precision of the camera.
Processor, RAM, and storage
This smartphone is going to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, the best one that can be found at this moment on the market. It will also have an astounding 8GB of RAM, more than even some laptops have and up to 256GB of internal storage. By now we are starting to believe those people that said that this smartphone will be one the best ones of this year because they were not lying, OnePlus put a lot of work into OnePlus 6.
It is not often that we see a smartphone come out with a strong and durable glass back but OnePlus decided to use that. Fans were teased in the past with up to 70 different versions that were designed for OnePlus 6, out of which only one was chosen. The company’s CEO has stated that the one that they will be using is a perfect blend of premium design, durability, and class.
