Along with the much-rumored OnePlus 6, the company will also be launching a Marvel Avengers Edition of the flagship smartphone. The smartphones will first be unveiled at an event in London on May 16, followed by a launch in India on May 17. Ahead of the launch, a few key details of the Avengers Edition OnePlus 6 have surfaced online.
An alleged retail box of the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Edition has surfaced online, courtesy of IndiaToday. The publication claims that the retail box for the special edition device is bigger than the retail box of the standard variant. Secondly, the box also features a kevlar finish with a chequered pattern that was also seen in a promo video revealed by OnePlus a week ago. The report adds that the special retail box will also include “a few extra goodies”.
Apart from the special retail box, and a couple of cosmetic differences, the Marvel Avengers Edition will be the same as the OnePlus 6 standard variant. It was the same last year too, when OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition in collaboration with Disney.
