In an attempt to let OnePlus enthusiasts and prospective buyers have the opportunity to be among the first ones to experience and purchase its newly-launched OnePlus 6, the smartphone maker on Monday launched a pop-up sale in eight cities across the country. It went to sale yesterday but was only available to Amazon Prime members. Like previous flagships, the new 6 will run on the best hardware available right now and it is likely to have a performance that can rival a mainstream flagship device.

Now, considering the fact that only a handful of users, probably around 5 percent, will consider buying the top variant of the OnePlus 6 that comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for a price tag of Rs 39,999. It will be available in Midnight Black, Mirror Black, and Silk White (Limited Edition) color variants. Then there's Midnight Black, which has a matte finish that feels a lot like metal, and Silk White, which has a softer matte texture but also a rose gold frame.

OnePlus 6 units worth Rs 100 crores were sold in ten minutes during the first preview in India, the company said in a press statement.

Here is what Android central quotes about the phone, "The OnePlus 6, despite sharing almost identical dimensions with its all-metal predecessor, has gained a bit of thickness and a sizeable amount of weight, and that's owing to its Gorilla Glass 5 housing, a first for the OnePlus series". Well, the OnePlus 6 already has its special limited edition, and it is based on the current rage in Hollywood, Marvel's The Avengers: Infinity War.

With the OnePlus 6, the company has also introduced Portrait Mode on the front camera as well as its rear and has newly added bokeh effects, including circles, hearts and stars offer new ways for users to customize their portraits.

In terms of performance, the OnePlus 6 is powered by a an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU.

This phone has fingerprint sensor on the back and also incorporates face unlock feature. Its secondary 20MP camera has Sony IMX376K sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The OnePlus 6 doesn't come with a selfie flash, which means that you can bid goodbye to low-light selfies. The much anticipated OnePlus 6 was up for grabs in India for the first time on May 21.

The dual camera setup of 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel is far better than 5T.

The handset also features Dash Charge, giving the OnePlus 6 'a day's power in half an hour.' The battery size remains the same as the OnePlus 5 and 5T though, at 3,300mAh.

"The company has upped its game with the OnePlus 6 while hitting pretty much all the checkmarks: the latest specs, better cameras and slick performance, all packaged within a lovely new glass body".

Software: OxygenOS 5.1 on Android 8.1 Oreo.
