OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition Launch Confirmed By OnePlus
The OnePlus 6 will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors in more than one way. There are rumours that just like the OnePlus 5 had a significant price hike from the OnePlus 3/3T, the OnePlus 6 will also be a bit pricier than the OnePlus 5. Now, the company has confirmed that it has tied up with Avengers: Infinity War for a special OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War edition, just like the OnePlus 5T was launched in a Star Wars Special Edition variant a few days after its official launch.
In a media note, OnePlus said:
The collaboration marks a step towards strengthening our association with Disney India. In December 2017, OnePlus and Disney partnered to launch OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, which was well received by fans across both communities.
It is worth noting that the release date for Avengers: Infinity War is 27th April. This means that the OnePlus 6 could launch before, or on the same day as the Marvel film. The company did not hint towards a launch date in the media note. However, considering the social media activity of OnePlus, the company could soon hint at a release date as well.
If the Star Wars Edition of the OnePlus 5T is anything to go by, we could see a very different Avengers Edition of the OnePlus 6 compared to the regular OnePlus 6. It is expected to have the movie branding on the smartphone along with a different colour variant as well. The specifications of the OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War Edition will be the same as the regular OnePlus 6. However, the Avengers Edition might only launch in the 256GB storage variant, since the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition was only launched in the 8GB RAM/128GB storage variant.
The OnePlus 6 is shaping up to be quite an upgrade over the OnePlus 5/5T with its new “notch” design and water resistance. The pricing, as usual, will be key to the success of the OnePlus 6 in countries like India.
