After teasing the new OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition smartphone couple of weeks ago, OnePlus today launched it for a Chinese market alongside the regular models in Metallic Black and Midnight Black variants. The term Special Edition has been popular on previous OnePlus flagships, so it looks like the company wants to once again capitalize on that with this new option.
OnePlus flagships have been generating a lot of buzz for a few years from now. Last year, something similar had happened with the OnePlus 5T. A few weeks after the launch of the phone in Midnight Black and Lava Red, OnePlus launched the 5T with Star Wars limited edition in Sandstone White. However, if you’re one of those customers who find the OnePlus 6’s Mirror Black and Midnight Black are boring, the Marvel Avengers Limited Edition could be good.
It comes with a custom 3D Kevlar-textured glass back, 6 layers of optical coating and Avengers logo in gold colour, in addition to the OnePlus logo. There’s also included Golden colour alert slider on the side compared to the Red colour in the Star Wars and Lava Red limited editions of the 5T.
Apart from the change in colour and construction materials, everything else is similar to the standard OnePlus 6 models. OnePlus has also announced that the Marvel Avengers Limited Edition will only be available in 8 + 256GB configuration. It is worth noting that OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers version will be a limited edition for now. We are not sure yet if this is limited by quantities or time.
Available in three different variants in China – Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Marvel Avengers Limited Edition, the 6 + 64 GB variant of the OnePlus 6 is priced at 3199 Yuan ($500), the 8 + 128GB variant is priced at 3599 Yuan ($565). Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line 8 + 256GB variant in either Mirror Black or Midnight Black is priced at 3999 Yuan ($625), and Marvel Avengers Limited Edition is priced at 4199 Yuan ($660). The Special Edition phone also comes with a bundled Iron Man styled case and Captain America medal inside the box.
