OnePlus is back with a Limited Edition phone just about every geek in the world should want. This is the OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition. Very recently, OnePlus announced the newest phone in the OnePlus lineup, the OnePlus 6. You can catch our full writeup here. If you don’t want to read the whole article, here are the specs without going into too much detail:
- Snapdragon 845
- 6.28″ AMOLED Screen
- Dual Rear Cameras 16 & 20MP
- 6 or 8GB RAM
- 64, 128, 256GB Storage
- 3300mAh Battery
That’s not really why you’re here though, is it? You may remember OnePlus did something like this for Star Wars. They released the 5T Star Wars limited edition, but the catch was it was only available in India. You can technically get it here in the States, but it was never made available here officially.
Just a quick glance at this phone and you wouldn’t be able to tell it from a standard OnePlus 6. If you take a closer look though, you’ll begin to be able to take in the beauty that is this phone.
The inscribed Avengers insignia rests below a curved glass panel which allows light to reflect off the logo and mirror the intensity of hues surrounding it.
The gold that makes up the Avengers and OnePlus logos is actually under the back glass. That means that it will never show wear, outside of any scuffs and scratches to the glass surface. You will also notice the back has a carbon fiber look to it. The alert slider on the side of the phone is also done in gold. The more I look at it, the more gorgeous this phone looks.
What’s in the OnePlus Box?
‘Looks like OnePlus isn’t going to half-ass this. In the box, you get the phone, sim eject tool, charger, some Avengers insignia, and a pretty dope looking Iron Man case. Not only that, but the front of the box features a big Avengers logo. If they could have timed this a bit better with the release of Infinity War, I think they could have made a lot of money off this phone. I have to say it again. That Iron Man case looks friggin cool. True, it does look like it would add a decent amount of bulk to the phone, but, c’mon look at this thing!
There’s no official word yet, but from the website, it looks like this may be an India only thing like the Star Wars phone. I really hope this will be released in the US because it doesn’t look like there will be much of a premium added to this phone. The site lists it at ₹44,999, which translates to just over $660 USD.
The standard OnePlus 6 is a great phone at a great price. If the price holds true, it would only cost $130 more to get the Avengers phone. To me, that’s a no-brainer. If it’s available to you, would you forgo the standard version to pick up the Avengers phone? Or would you save the $130 and buy the lower spec’d version of the phone? Let us know in the comments!
