A few hours after it held the global launch event in London, OnePlus has now announced the arrival of its most recent flagship device – the OnePlus 6 in its homeland, China. Alongside the regular OnePlus 6, the company also announced the OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War Limited Edition in the country.
Price in China
OnePlus 6 fans in China are in luck, as all the OnePlus 6 variants in that country cost less than what was announced yesterday for other countries. The 6GB RAM + 64 GB storage variant will sell for 3,199 Yuan (~$503), the 6GB RAM + 128 GB storage model for 3,599 Yuan (~$566), the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage model for 3,599 Yuan (~$566), the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for 3,999 Yuan (~$628), while the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage model in silk white will go for 3,599 Yuan (~$566).
The OnePlus 6 Avengers: Infinity War Limited Edition with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB carries the heftiest price tag, retailing at 4,199 Yuan which translates to about $660.
In China, you will be able to get the OnePlus 6 with 6 GB + 64 GB in Mirror Black, 8 GB + 256 GB in Midnight Black and 8 GB + 128 GB in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colors from the OnePlus official online store and Jingdong Mall starting from May 22, while the Avengers Limited Edition OnePlus 6 and Silk White 8 GB + 128 GB will both go on sale from June 5 via same channels.
We have already detailed the specs and features of the flagship OnePlus 6 here, but here is a quick run through them once again.
With the headphone jack intact, the OnePlus 6, unlike previous models, is now more water resistant. The OnePlus 6 flaunts the biggest screen ever found on any OnePlus device, featuring a notched 6.28 inches display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with the trendy 19:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by the same chipset found in most other flagships so far released in 2018 including the Galaxy S9 duo and the LG G7 ThinQ – the Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM and as much as 256GB of storage, but still lacks the microSD card slot for memory expansion.
