OnePlus 6 is on the verge of release. However, the best part of the news is the recent announcement by the Chinese company which has recently announced its partnership with Marvel Studios. This new tie-up is primarily for Avengers: Infinity War that is hitting the theatres in India and the US on April 27 and also further extends the association between OnePlus and Walt Disney. It majorly hints at the launch of an Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 that could debut around the release date of Avengers: Infinity War later this month. However, the official OnePlus 6 launch date has not been announced as of now. Last year, OnePlus tied up with Walt Disney Studios to launch the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition model exclusively in India.
The news about the partnership between OnePlus and Marvel Studios first emerged through a video teaser that showed OnePlus and Avengers logos and featured an Avengers: Infinity War poster for a brief 10 seconds. It was initially posted on OnePlus India’s Facebook page for a short while before being deleted.
Also, in its recent Press Note, OnePlus added that, “OnePlus’ association with Marvel Studios is a manifestation of the enduring love and support they have garnered from its respective community over the years with a purpose to go beyond the ordinary and achieve groundbreaking innovations in mobile technology only to create the best user experiences”.
However, OnePlus hasn’t revealed any formal details about the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 right now. Nevertheless, it is expected to come with Avengers branding and may have some preloaded content specifically for Infinity War fans. But, all this is similar to what OnePlus offered with the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition that was launched in India for ₹38,999.
To know more, specifications-wise the original OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition didn’t have any distinct changes. Therefore, it is safe to say that the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 model would be also identical to its original model that is so far set to have a notch design and Snapdragon 845 SoC. Other leaked specifications include a dual rear camera setup and up to 256GB of onboard storage. The handset is also speculated to come with a water-resistant build and an Alert Slider to enable ‘Slide to Focus’ option.
