Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6 back in May in India. However, late last month, OnePlus launched a new variant of the Midnight Black model that comes with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. This variant went on sale in the country earlier this week. But, it was only available for purchase through Amazon India. However, starting today, the 256 GB storage variant is now available for purchase through OnePlus.in as well as through offline stores across the country.
The Midnight Black variant with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage is priced at ₹43,999. At launch time, the OnePlus 6 was only available in 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage options. The 64 GB storage variant is only in Mirror Black color, whereas, the 128 GB storage variant is available in Mirror Black, Midnight Black as well as Silk White colors.
The only other variant of the OnePlus 6 that came with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage in India initially was the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition, however, it quickly went out of stock and we don’t think it will be available for purchase again. It was also priced higher at ₹44,999.
Having said that, there are a total of five different variants of the OnePlus 6 that you can buy in India right now. They are as follows:
- OnePlus 6 Mirror Black 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage (₹34,999)
- OnePlus 6 Mirror Black 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage (₹39,999)
- OnePlus 6 Silk White 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage (₹39,999)
- OnePlus 6 Midnight Black 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage (₹39,999)
- OnePlus 6 Midnight Black 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage (₹43,999)
All of these variants can be purchased online either through OnePlus India’s website or through Amazon India, or, can also be purchased through offline stores. There’s also an Amber Red variant of OnePlus 6 which comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, but it’s yet to go on sale in India.
