OnePlus 6 Might Come In A Special Avengers Edition
It Seems Only The Avengers Can Save OnePlus 6 And Its Notch!
Technology companies piggybacking off the popularity of celebrities and movie franchises to hype up their own products is nothing new. And the latest, seems to be OnePlus.
The Chinese company’s next ‘flagship killer’ smartphone, confirmed recently to be called OnePlus 6, is due to launch soon. And if the latest rumour is to be believed, OnePlus 6 might come in a special Avengers edition. Considering that Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, perhaps the most eagerly-anticipated Hollywood release of 2018, is due to hit theaters worldwide later this month, this could help OnePlus 6 get some more traction.
A short teaser video has popped up on Chinese social networking website Weibo. It shows the Avengers’ ‘A’ logo interspersing for a few seconds with the OnePlus logo, before showing the title card of Avengers: Infinity War, along with the movie’s release date. Whether there will indeed be a special Avengers edition OnePlus 6 or not, is something we’ll only know once the smartphone is officially launched.
It’s worth mentioning that last year, the company launched a special Star Wars edition of its current flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5T.
As has always been the case, OnePlus 6 will most certainly launch with top-tier hardware specifications. These include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB/8GB of RAM. Internal storage configurations could include 128GB and 256GB options. OnePlus 6 will support the latest iteration of the company’s proprietary fast-charging solution, called Dash Charge.
The soon-to-be-launched OnePlus 6 has been getting quite some attention lately, and not of the good kind. After the company’s co-founder Carl Pei confirmed a few days back that OnePlus 6 will come with a notched display, fans have taken to technology websites, social media networks and even the official forums of OnePlus, to vent their anger and frustration. In fact, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently had to write a lengthy post on the forums, justifying the company’s decision to include the controversial notch in the upcoming OnePlus 6. But it did didn’t really do much to appease the angered OnePlus fans.
Whether a special Avengers edition OnePlus 6 can make fans (and other prospective buyers) ignore the notch or not, we’ll know in a few months.
