There’s a new colour variant of the OnePlus 6 – and it’s stunning

Right on cue, OnePlus has taken the wraps off a new colour variant of the OnePlus 6

It’s called Amber Red and it’s, well, drop-dead gorgeous, featuring a polished (you guessed it!) red frame and rear; silver accents around the OnePlus branding, dual-camera setup and fingerprint sensor; and a black bezel surrounding the screen.

That’s about all that’s changed, though, meaning the handset continues to sport the same 6.2-inch near-edge-to-edge screen, Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6/8GB of RAM and 3300mAh battery as the standard Midnight Black model.

The Amber Red model will launch in Europe and North America on July 10, where it will retail for £519/$579, before heading to India on July 16. The first market to receive it, however, was China, where sales commenced on July 2, as rumoured.

Those wanting to scoop up the stunning Amber Red OnePlus 6 should add the aforementioned dates to their diary as we can’t imagine stock being around for too long – the Sandstone White version of the OnePlus 5T sold out in just two hours.

The OnePlus 6 is shaping up to be one of the best smartphones on the market, with our Mobile and Tablets Editor Max Parker writing in his review: “At £469, it’s an absolute steal. It’s the best-value phone you can buy right now, without a doubt.”

Last week, OnePlus announced that it will continue to release Android software update smartphones up until their second birthday, and critical security updates until their third – matching Android titan Google’s policy with Pixel handsets.
