Last week, citing a video teaser, we reported how an Avengers Edition of the OnePlus 6 is on its way to India to celebrate the release of the movie, Avengers: Infinity War. And fresh on the heels, there is information signaling that the Avengers: Infinity War Limited Edition of the OnePlus 6 is also headed to the UK market.
For the unaware, OnePlus launching a Star Wars edition of their phone is not new. It has already made available the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition last year. And with the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 in the offing, we can assume that OnePlus' partnership with Marvel is thriving.
The OnePlus 6 is one of the most eagerly awaited flagships of recent times. The Chinese manufacturer packs its handsets with specs and features on par with the flagships from Apple and Samsung, and yet offers them at half the price compared to the prices of the flagships from these two biggies. This is the precise reason why we always witness a high level of excitement preceding the announcement of any of the OnePlus handsets.
If the reports are to be believed the OnePlus 6 is another flagship killer in the making as it will pack the latest octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC from Qualcomm, the same SoC which powers the Samsung Galaxy S9 series. Under the hood, there is up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
The OnePlus 6 is officially confirmed to be getting an iPhone X-like notch with 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, allowing for a wider screen real estate. On the rear, it will mount a dual-camera setup combining a 20MP sensor with another 16MP sensor. The camera module is touted for clicking excellent portrait mode images.
A leak out of China suggests that the OnePlus 6 might launch on May 5 in the country, but considering the fact that the current model, the OnePlus 5T is quickly going out of stock in various markets, we expect an international launch of the OnePlus 6 at the end of this month itself. Anyways, OnePlus always puts forth its devices in the international markets before making them available in China.
About the launch of the OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War Edition, it doesn't seem likely to coincide with the launch of the movie, which is on April 27; rather it will be scheduled along with the launch of the regular OnePlus 6 or even later. As usual with any customized version, the OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War Edition will be limited in numbers and available in select markets. Whether the Limited Edition of the OnePlus 6 will also be extended to the Philippines, we are yet to bump into such information.
