OnePlus 6, the much-awaited flagship from OnePlus, so far, is set to launch in India on the 17th of May. With ten days to go for the launch, the device has already seen unprecedented interest on Amazon.in with 'Notify Me' registrations already bypassing the 1 million customer interest mark.
OnePlus 6 has witnessed huge interest from fans since the 'Notify Me' subscription went live on April 22nd, 2018. This is the fastest ever that registrations have hit the 1 million mark for a OnePlus device. This is indicative of the high level of anticipation that has followed the OnePlus 6 launch since the announcement of the new flagship making it OnePlus' most awaited smartphone yet.
This customer interest will continue to soar, as the launch inches closer before the product goes on early access sale for Amazon Prime members on May 21, 2018. Amazon.in has had a long-standing exclusive partnership with OnePlus since its inception in Dec 2014 in India.
As for the specs, the smartphone will flaunt a 6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 2,280×1,080 pixel resolution. On the photography front, the smartphone will boast the same vertically housed dual camera setup comprising of a 20MP and 16MP sensor, but there's no word on the front camera of the phone. A 3450mAh battery will fuel the device and will support company's Dash fast charging functionality.
The device is also going to sport the controversial iPhone X-like notch. OnePlus CEO, Carl Pei posted a picture of the notch with its exact dimensions. He also stated that the notch falls somewhere between iPhone X's and Essential Phone's notch. The OnePlus 6 notch will house a selfie camera alongside the ambient light sensor, earpiece, and a notification LED. The only thing missing here is the FaceID tech that makes the iPhone X notch a tad bigger.
The company has also collaborated with Marvel Studios to unveil a special edition of the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone for consumers. The collaboration marks a step towards strengthening OnePlus' association with Disney India.
OnePlus confirmed the news by releasing a teaser video hinting towards the launch of the special edition of the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone. OnePlus 6 x Marvels Avengers Limited Edition smartphone will be launched on May 17, 2018, in the Indian market. OnePlus has also made it clear that the special edition product will be Amazon exclusive product.
