It goes without saying that those who consider themselves hardcore fans of Android mobile devices will always be excited whenever a new OnePlus smartphone arrives. And that is exactly what happened earlier this week, with the formal unveiling of the eagerly awaited OnePlus 6 flagship. But for Android aficionados who also see themselves as serious Marvel fans, they just might go ballistic with the knowledge that the OnePlus 6 has a special version that is inspired by what many already consider as the biggest movie event of the year -- Avengers: Infinity War.
Nope -- the Avengers edition of the OnePlus 6 will never be as cool as Thanos’ highly coveted Infinity Gems, but there is plenty to get excited about. The regular OnePlus 6 is already a pretty impressive smartphone, but the Infinity War inspired variant tries to take things a little further by adding gold colored OnePlus and Avengers logos, set on a rear cover that rocks a Kevlar pattern.
It should be noted that the Avengers edition of the OnePlus 6 is only made available for the model’s highest specifications -- that would be the one with 8 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 256 gigabytes of built in memory. As of this writing, OnePlus has made it known that this particular variant will be released in the Chinese mobile market. Interestingly, nearly a month ago, there were reports that the phone maker was planning to launch an Avengers themed OnePlus 6 intended for Indian mobile users some time this year. Nobody knows just yet if this will also happen, but it is very likely.
The Avengers edition of the OnePlus 6 is priced at around $660, which is about thirty bucks more expensive than the regular OnePlus 6 model (with similar RAM and onboard storage specs). Those who are looking to get this special edition (by hook or by crook) do get to have the Avengers Alliance package, which might feature an ultra cool phone case in the shape of Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet. On top of that, the box also features a gold colored Avengers medallion embossed with the iconic letter A logo representing the world’s greatest assembly of superheroes (in the Marvel universe at least).
OnePlus is actually quite fond of releasing special editions of its flagships. More than five months ago, it had introduced a limited edition of its best sellingOnePlus 5T, just in time for the screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
