    OnePlus on Monday announced the launch of Red Edition of its latest flagship phone, OnePlus 6. Featuring 8GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage, OnePlus 6 Red Edition will be available in India from July 16. The new variant is priced at 39,999.

    "To capture the perfect red, OnePlus utilised a never-done-before technique utilising optical coating, evaporative film, and six panels of glass. An added anti-reflective layer was used to allow more light to reach the bottom layers of glass before being reflected off the device, creating a sense of depth. A translucent orange layer intermixes with the red base layer to achieve a radiant glossy red, unique to OnePlus," said the company in a note.

    "Attention to detail is paramount as seen in the metallic red shimmer coupled with the red, mirror-like fingerprint sensor that elegantly contrasts with the silver camera lens accent," it added.

    CEO Pete Lau in a blog post disclosed that the company used new coating to achieve an "amber-like" depth and clarity in the new edition of OnePlus 6.

    "Another challenge we faced was adequately increasing the brightness of the red coating. In order to maintain a bright coating, the design team included an evaporated layer of brightening film that cost around $5 to make crystal clear. The result is a sizeable glossy, transparent layer over the red coating," he wrote.

    Apart from the new design and RAM and storage combination, OnePlus 6 Red Edition has same set of specifications as the main variant. The smartphone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel dual-camera on the back. ALSO READ: OnePlus 6 Review
