OnePlus just launched the limited edition Marvel Avengers Edition in the Indian market. The company has priced the limited edition smartphone for Rs 44,999 and comes with some changes to the elements of the design when compared to the regular OnePlus 6. Regular OnePlus 6 is available in three color variants, the ‘Mirror Black’, ‘ Midnight Black’ and the ‘Silk White’. ‘Mirror Black’ and ‘Midnight Black’ will go on sale starting May 21, 2018, while the ‘Silk White’ will launch in coming weeks. Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan was present for the launch event.
Bikram Duggal, the head of Studio Business for Disney India took to the stage after the launch of regular variants of the OnePlus 6 to announce this limited edition. OnePlus pointed out that it always teams up with the most powerful team of the year as it launched the device. Previously, the company had teamed with Star Wars franchise to launch the Star Wars edition of the OnePlus 5T.
The company also launched a new challenge, the ‘Infinity Medal Challenge’ for the people who are looking to buy this limited edition device. This gaming element will allow buyers in taking part in assembling back the Avengers team, as done by Marvel Studio over last ten years. The company sent us the Marvel Avengers Edition.
Kevlar Back: One word would be enough to describe the limited Marvel Avengers Edition and that is classy. The device does come with a glass finish on the back but it also comes with a Kevlar finish behind the glass giving it a premium look. The device looks stunning when light makes the Kevlar underneath the curve glass shine. OnePlus has added a gold color company logo and an Avengers logo on the back of the device.
Themes: OnePlus has made some subtle changes to the software of this limited edition smartphone with changing to the dark theme with Golden accent color to match the dark of the space and Gold of the gauntlet. It also comes with five custom Avengers Infinity War wallpapers.
Box: The company has opted for Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage on the Avengers Infinity War Edition. The device is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.1.1. The remaining specifications of the device remain unchanged when compared to the regular version that the company launched in the Indian market.
Alert Slider: Similar to the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition, this limited edition also comes with a colored alert slider with the color changing from Red to Golden here. There are not many changes when it comes to the exterior of the device. The company has also changed the position of the Alert Slider to move it to the right while making some tweaks in the software to better indicate how it functions.
Iron Man Case: OnePlus has packed in a good, hefty looking case with the limited Marvel Avengers edition of OnePlus 6. The face of Iron Man is carved out on the back of the case to protect the device and does it look good. It is similar to the Kylo Ren Case that the company packed with the limited Star Wars edition of the OnePlus 5T.
Box contents: You will get the Avengers Infinity War edition flagship smartphone, the Dash charger adapter and trademark Red charging wire inside the box. The company has also packed a small box with the instruction manual, a sweet OnePlus Marvel sticker, a card with the Avengers logo printed on one side and ‘Infinity’ poem on one end. I will not spoil it because this is a spoiler-free first impressions. The box also comes with one of the six pieces of the ‘OnePlus Infinity Medal’ as part of the ‘OnePlus Infinity Medal Challenge’.
