OnePlus 6 gets a new 8GB/256GB variant in India

OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 6 got unveiled in India last month in 6GB/64GB, 8GB/128GB, and special Marvel Avengers Limited Edition variants. The last was the only one carrying 8GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM.

That’s not the case anymore as OnePlus has decided to release a Midnight Black version of the OnePlus 6 carrying 8GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM. The arrival comes as a bit of a surprise since the company had previously said it had no set plans for bringing the option to India.

OnePlus 6 8GB/256GB Variant Price

It looks like OnePlus had a change of heart at some point along the way. The Marvel Avengers model isn’t available anymore since it got sold out pretty quickly, so that might be one factor in play. Thankfully, the new 8GB/256GB OnePlus 6 is a bit cheaper than its limited edition counterpart.

OnePlus has slapped a Rs 43999 price tag on it, making it Rs 1000 less expensive than the Rs 44999 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition. As usual, Amazon India and the brand’s site are the only 2 places where the new variant will be sold online.
