OnePlus 6 Red release TODAY - Meet the most stunning OnePlus to date

Now, Amazon users can buy OnePlus 6's 'midnight black' variant with 256GB storage

With the introduction of the new colour variant, the company has extended the variant range of its latest flagship device.

The red OnePlus 6 comes in the 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage configuration, which means it's not the cheapest option (6GB + 64GB), nor the one with the most storage (8GB + 256GB). The phone can be picked up from Amazon India only at the moment, but starting July 14, it can also be purchased from oneplus.in and OnePlus exclusive offline stores.

Called as OnePlus 6 Red Edition, the Chinese smartphone manufacturing company previously introduced OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition which took its colour inspiration from cooling lava.

The new configuration is available only on the midnight black color option, while the other color options now top out at 128GB. The handset also has a red, mirror-like fingerprint sensor that sits at the back.

In terms of specifications, the dual-SIM (Nano) OnePlus 6 runs Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS 5.1 on top and is upgradable to Android P. The handset features a 6.28-inch full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) Full Optic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. For photography, the handset comes fitted with a dual camera module at the rear featuring a 16MP primary Sony IMX519 sensor and a 20MP secondary Sony IM376K sensor with dedicated dual-LED flash. However, OnePlus is now adding a 256GB storage variant for its midnight black color option, which will go on sale on Amazon India today. For selfies, the smartphone has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.

There's also facial recognition for fast unlocking, a 3,300 mAh fast charging battery and there's even a headphone port.
