by July 2, 2018


China based smartphone maker OnePlus launched its latest flagship OnePlus 6 in May. At the time of launch the company announced three color variants- Mirror Black, Midnight Black and Limited Edition Silk White. Now, the company has unveiled fourth color option i.e. OnePlus 6 Red Edition. The new variant will sport an amber-like finish that has been created through expert craftsmanship and material design as claimed by the company.

While commenting on the addition of new color variant, Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus said,”Selecting the right color is part of an ongoing attempt to find the right balance between the visual and the tactile. This goal requires a “best match” technology to support.” He further added, “In order to achieve an “amber-like” depth and clarity, we used a new film coating process that’s never been attempted before in the smartphone industry. The result is a red that’s more elegant, one that leaves a strong impression of quality and value.”
