After announcing its “flagship killer” OnePlus 6 smartphone in London yesterday, OnePlus launched its OnePlus 6 smartphone in India today. Along with that, the company also launched a special variant of the phone — OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition.
Before announcing this limited edition device in the Indian market, the phone was first announced in China today. It comes with a custom 3D Kevlar-textured glass back with Corning Gorilla 5 protection, features 6 layers of optical coating.
On the back panel, there’s an Avengers logo in gold color, in addition to OnePlus branding which is also in gold color. The alert slider on the side of the phone also comes covered in a golden hue. Further, the smartphone comes with 5 custom Avengers wallpapers.
Along with this specially designed smartphone, the company is also bundling Iron Man protective case in the box as well as one of the six Avenger superhero medals in each box (Hulk, Black Widow, Black Panther, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor).
However, the specifications of the phone remain same as the regular model. It comes with a 6.28-inch notched AMOLED display with screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor.
The regular model of OnePlus 6 comes in different memory configuration — 6GB and 8GB RAM along with 64GB, 128GB and 256GB internal storage option. However, this Avengers Limited Edition smartphone comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

As for the software, the smartphone is running the company’s own OxygenOS, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box. However, the OnePlus is already a part of Android P Beta program and thus, users can also try out the upcoming Android P.
