This is the newly released OnePlus 6 red edition, and take my word for it, it’s the sexiest OnePlus device to date!
The back of the phone uses the uncompromising, in-your-face kind of red paint. You can put it against pretty much any red surface, it’d still stand out from the background. OnePlus went an extra mile this time to adopt a special kind of paint that’s extra glossy. The paint also yields different colors in different lighting environments.
I’m not a color expert, so excuse my uneducated vocabulary. I’d say under strong direct sunlight, it turns into this shimmering goldish orange, and in a dimmer environment, it becomes this sexy and mysterious dark red.
Now, in reality, it gets way more complicated than that. When you introduce factors such as artificial light and the different angles of where the lights are coming from, you get a whole dynamic range of different red colors with this paint.
The metallic rings on the back too walk on the fine line between silver and gold, it’s actually quite hard to tell what color it really is, which adds to the phone’s whimsical personality.
To me personally, buying a OnePlus phone had never been about going for its design. It’s about value and performance. This right here is a game changer. The regular midnight black edition looks simply dull if put the two side by side. The red edition comes with a much stronger personality. It feels almost like a fashion item.
If you have been thinking about getting a OnePlus 6 but never did, I would for sure recommend this red edition. Why not? The price of this phone remains unchanged from the regular edition with the same tech specs.
In India, the red edition is set at Rs. 39,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration. In the US, it’ll cost $579.If you are interested in knowing the performance of the phone, we did a series of test and reviews, including the legendary coca cola test!
