If you thought the Star Wars OnePlus 5T was an ambitious crossover, you haven’t seen anything yet. The Chinese smartphone giant has announced it will drop its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 6, on May 22. The new release will be available in Mirror Black, Midnight Black, Silk White…oh, and Vibranium.
On May 29, OnePlus fans in China and India will have the chance to get their hands on an exclusive Avengers version of the brand new phone. The company teased the release of this limited edition smartphone a few weeks earlier and has now revealed pictures of the Infinity War-themed device. It looks like something that slipped out of Tony Stark’s pocket.
The “Karbon Black” phone comes fully coated in what looks like a mix of Kevlar and carbon fiber — though sadly, it’s not actually Vibranium. On the back, you’ll find the Avengers logo directly under the OnePlus symbol etched in with a gold finish. The Marvel edition of the OnePlus 6 will start at $660, that’s $131 more than the standard version of the phone. But don’t worry, you’ll be getting a lot more than just a shiny phone. Here’s a look at how the Avengers OnePlus 6 will look like and some of its most notable features:
Cases, Wallpaper, and More
What’s an Avengers-themed phone without its own suit of Ironman armor? The special edition OnePlus 6 will come in a branded box containing an Ironman protective case, Infinity War stickers, and a metal collectible.
Not only that, but once you boot up your new device, you’ll have multiple Avengers wallpapers to choose from. So you can show off who your favorite hero is.
Charging and Battery Life
Unlike like the iPhone X, OnePlus’s new release will not support wireless charging, but it will come with “Dash Charge” capabilities. This built-in battery feature is said to be able to give the handset a day’s worth of power in just half an hour. This way you’ll never be late to a function because you had to wait for your phone to charge.
This is a pretty crucial feature, seeing as the OnePlus 6 will have the same exact same battery as its predecessor. But now that you have the ability to charge it in a fraction of the time it would normally take, you should notice an improvement in battery life.
The OnePlus 6 comes retrofitted with a dual rear camera, just like the iPhone X. Both come with light sensors made by Sony that will improve light noise in bright areas and allow for brighter photos in darker places.
Portrait mode will also make a comeback, and it will be making its debut to the front-facing camera. The previous OnePlus phone only had the feature available on the rear cameras, so this addition will put the OnePlus on par with the iPhone X’s portrait mode.
The OnePlus 6 touts the biggest screen to ever grace a OnePlus model, and much like the iPhone X, it will also have a notch. The display will be in 6.28-inches with a 19:9 aspect ration. This will make it slightly bigger than the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch display.
