OnePlus 6 in Amber Red makes China debut

OnePlus has introduced a new a colour option for its latest OnePlus 6 phone – Amber Red, reported the Chinese social networking site Weibo. The particular shade applies to the entire handset which includes the rear glass casing as well as the metallic sides and makes for a scintillating contrast with the front black.

Apart from the almost all encompassing red, the only other colour that catches the eye is the golden shade that adorns the edges of the rear fingerprint sensor and the raised enclosure for the rear camera stack. Those apart, the company logo too is done up in gold, which against the red backdrop looks simply stunning.

As for its price, the new Amber Red version of the OnePlus 6 will set one back a cool 3,599 Yuan in China. That comes to roughly around $542 though the price is slightly higher than the 3,199 Yuan that the phone otherwise costs in China for the other colour options. You can choose from Mirror Black, Midnight Black, Silk White shades for the phone though there also is the Avengers themed version of the phone as well.

The rest of the specification is however the same, which includes the same Snapdragon 845 chipset though the Amber Red version will however be available with 128 GB of storage along with 8 gigs of RAM. Also, it is going to be the same 6.28-inch AMOLED display making up the front. The display has a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and has an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The highlight of the rear is of course the vertically aligned dual lens camera setup comprised of a 16 megapixel primary lens and a 20 megapixel secondary lens. Plus there also is the 16 megapixel camera housed within the front notch and should suffice for selfie shots perfectly well. The phone also comes powered by a 3,300 mAh battery which supports Dash Charging tech for quick recharges.

The Amber Red OnePlus 6 can be ordered via the official company store in China as well as from the Jingdong Mall. Sale begins from the midnight of July 9. No word yet as to when it is going to be available in other countries including India though unofficial sources claim that is going to happen soon enough.
