OnePlus 6 Red Edition with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage goes on sale in India

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6 on May 16, followed by India launch on May 17. At the time of launch, the OnePlus 6 came in three color variants – Mirror Black, Midnight Black and Silk White. OnePlus also launched a fourth variant called OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition which is out of stock and we don’t think the stock will be replenished by OnePlus. That said, after more than a month from the launch, OnePlus earlier this month announced the OnePlus 6 Red Edition which finally goes on sale in India starting today.


The OnePlus 6 Red Edition isn’t the first OnePlus smartphone in red color that’s launched by OnePlus. Back in February this year, OnePlus had launched a red color variant of the OnePlus 5T called OnePlus 5T Lava Red.


Apart from the difference in color, there isn’t anything new and different between the OnePlus 6 Red Edition and the other variants. It is powered by the same Snapdragon 845 SoC which is paired with 8 GB RAM and has 128 GB of storage on-board. Having said that, the OnePlus 6 Red Edition doesn’t come in 64 GB or 256 GB storage options. If you want 64 GB storage, you will have to buy the Mirror Black variant, and, if you want 256 GB storage, you will have to go for the Midnight Black variant which went on sale through offline stores and in India last week.

The OnePlus 6 Red Edition is priced the same as other variants of the OnePlus 6 that come with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage – ₹39,999. It will be available for purchase through Amazon India as well as today starting 12 pm.
