OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition

We all know that Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is all set to launch its flagship for 2018- the OnePlus 6. The phone is expected to be announced by end of April or by May 2018. The device is leaked online several times and recently OnePlus released its first teaser that confirmed the name. Then, the company also rolled out a new teaser video on its Indian Facebook page that hinted towards an Avengers-themed special edition of OnePlus 6. Although the same was taken down after a few hours, many users were able to capture the video beforehand.

And now the company has posted some new info on its Weibo (Chinese micro-blogging site) account. OnePlus did not mention anything in particular about the special edition but it did mention an upcoming Avengers movie, the Avengers: Infinity War and has asked the fans to pay close attention to its account over the next couple of days. Here’s the translated version of the post,

OnePlus 6 Avengers-Infinity War Special EditionThe company is running a promotion in which it is asking the fans to share the name of their favorite Marvel superhero along with their favorite OnePlus handset. In addition, the fans need to upload some cosplay images. Those who upload the most creative cosplay images will stand a chance to win tickets for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie. OnePlus and Marvel Studios are teaming up to organise special events in China where they might reveal some exclusive details about the upcoming special edition device.

This shouldn’t come as a complete surprise as OnePlus has done something similar in the past. The company had earlier collaborated with Disney to launch OnePlus 5T Star Wars Special Edition.

What to expect in OnePlus 6 Avengers-Infinity War Edition?

The special edition of OnePlus 6 will feature some custom design/colour elements of Avengers-Infinity War like logo on the back panel to differentiate itself from the regular variant. There may also be the Avengers theme inside like wallpaper etc.

There won’t be any difference in terms of specifications though. For those who are unaware here’s a quick recap of speculated specs:

The OnePlus 6 is expected to sport a 6.3-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and aspect ratio of 19:9. The company has confirmed the iPhone X like display notch. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB ROM. The phone will be running OxygenOS based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The dual-SIM smartphone will be backed by a 3,300 mAh with a support for Dash Charge v2.0 which can charge the battery up to 60% in less than 20 minutes.

For the camera buffs, there will be a dual rear camera (12MP + 20MP) setup. This will be vertically stacked at the center unlike OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T where it is placed at the top left corner. The fingerprint sensor will be placed just below the rear camera setup.

The special edition device will most probably be launched only in India as the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition was for India only and the teaser video was also posted on OnePlus’ Indian Facebook page only.

There are no details available regarding the launch date of the special edition. But as the movie is just a week away from its premier launch in US, one can expect to hear soon from OnePlus.
