The OnePlus 6 Red edition comes packing 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space, which is the same spec as the equally lush Silk White device, and this hardware partners the phone's powerful Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor.

With respect to color variants, the strategy of OnePlus has been to release a new phone with standard colors, followed by special color variants released at a later point in time.

"We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition", said Pete Lau, CEO and Founder, OnePlus, in the statement.

OnePlus just announced a new, flaming red version of its latest high-end champ, the OnePlus 6.

As usual, a new color finish revealed a new set of technical challenges that the company had to tackle.

It's called Amber Red and it's, well, drop-dead gorgeous, featuring a polished (you guessed it!) red frame and rear; silver accents around the OnePlus branding, dual-camera setup and fingerprint sensor; and a black bezel surrounding the screen. We see individual colors as a way to express certain feelings or ideas. That obviously never happened, with Silk White turning up instead, and the availability of a range of red cases on the OnePlus store. With the OnePlus 6, OnePlus states that it didn't want the shade of red to be overly bright. The new phone has an additional "evaporated layer of brightening film" to bring out that bright (but not too bright) red luster. Here are some of the official renders of the Amber Red OnePlus 6 that has been introduced in China. Are you going to try to snag one later this month?

That's some Samsung-grade bullshit right there, and we do know that Samsung can concoct deep design stories for its flagship phones and color choices. It's unclear if the OnePlus 6 will come in any other colors.
