OnePlus, a globally recognized smartphone company, today revealed the new OnePlus 6 Red edition. The new Red edition features an amber-like effect created through expert craftsmanship and material design and comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. It will retail at INR 39,999 and goes on sale from 16 July 2018.
“We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition,” said Pete Lau, CEO and Founder, OnePlus. “We worked to avoid an overly bright red color while still capturing a sense of self-confidence and positivity. Achieving the amber-like effect took several months to refine and perfect.”
OnePlus pursues the ultimate in power, performance, and user experience while maintaining an elegant and ‘burdenless’ design. The OnePlus 6 Red Edition delivers a vivid sensory experience that will last for years and endure with the ages.
To capture the perfect red, OnePlus utilized a never-done-before technique utilizing optical coating, evaporative film, and six panels of glass. An added anti-reflective layer was used to allow more light to reach the bottom layers of glass before being reflected off the device, creating a sense of depth. A translucent orange layer intermixes with the red base layer to achieve a radiant glossy red, unique to OnePlus.
Attention to detail is paramount as seen in the metallic red shimmer coupled with the red, mirror-like fingerprint sensor that elegantly contrasts with the silver camera lens accent.
Within 22 days of launch, one million OnePlus 6 phones were sold – making it the fastest selling device in the company’s history. The new OnePlus 6 Red Edition will be another great choice for users around the world.

The OnePlus 6 is powered by one of the most powerful processors on the market, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845, which improves performance by 30%, while being 10% more power efficient. Coupled with the Adreno 630, which is 30% faster than the previous generation, the OnePlus 6 is a powerhouse for everything from streaming HD video to playing graphically intense games.
With up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the OnePlus 6 effortlessly switches between multiple apps running at the same time without a single second of lag, allowing users to multitask with ease. The OnePlus 6’s dual-lane storage, based on UFS 2.1, ensures faster app loading and read/write speeds.
What this means to you – the user is that the device does not show even a small sign of stutter or lag anywhere and is tearing fast whatever the load you subject it to. I have personally tried throwing multi-tasking with particularly heavy processes and even hardcore games at it and the phone just gobbles everything up and asks you for more. This makes the smartphone experience with the OnePlus 6 extremely smooth and very fast.
Like its approach to hardware, OnePlus’ approach to software is centered around an experience that is refined, efficient and minimalistic. New features are vetted by OnePlus users through channels like the OxygenOS Beta Program and only added once OnePlus is confident the features can improve the way users use their phone.
The OnePlus 6’s dual camera system features a 16MP main camera, supported by a 20MP secondary camera. With an f/1.7 aperture, the 16MP main camera has been bolstered by a 19 percent larger sensor and OIS for outstanding performance in a range of lighting conditions. With Advanced HDR, OnePlus’ improved High Dynamic Range algorithm, the OnePlus 6 brings out shadows and enhances lighting in photos. Portrait Mode will be available on the OnePlus 6’s front camera as well as its rear. Using AI, the front camera is able to apply a depth of field effect to selfies. Newly added bokeh effects, including circles, hearts and stars offer new ways for users to customize their portraits.
The OnePlus 6 marks the introduction of OnePlus’ Slow-Motion mode, which can capture high-definition video frame-by-frame with astonishing detail, ensuring users never miss the action.
The enhanced bokeh mode in the rear cameras is very visible and the edges of the subject are very clearly demarcated in pictures and the blurring of the background looks very thoroughly professional. With the increase in the pixel size, OnePlus has managed to make the low light pictures look a lot better. The photos are good and the colors are rendered very crisply. Pictures taken with the HDR mode are very vivid and I now have the mode on for all my pictures. The wonderful bonus is the fact that you can take bokeh shots with the front camera too.
