“We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition. We worked to avoid an overly bright red colour while still capturing a sense of self-confidence and positivity. Achieving the amber-like effect took several months to refine and perfect,” said Pete Lau, CEO and Founder, OnePlus on the occasion of the launch.

As for the rest of the specifications, they remain the same. This would include a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a dual camera (16 MP + 20 MP) setup at the back.
