The base model costs Rs 34,999 while the 128GB model is priced at Rs 39,999. However, unlike the OnePlus 6 which comes two variants in India, 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB, the Avengers edition model will only be offered with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

The phone also comes with an Iron Man mask-shaped case, which, as far as flashy cases go, is one of the coolest we've seen.

The OnePlus 6 event starts at 3 p.m. IST.

OnePlus has unveiled its new OnePlus 6 smartphone at an event in London, created to take on the top phones in the market with a more affordable price.

The device is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery and comes with the proprietary dash charger which promises a day's worth of usage in only 30 minutes of charging time. What's changed is the build of the phone that now boasts a carbon-textured back.

OnePlus 6 sports a dual camera setup at rear which includes 16-megapixels+20-megapixels sensors with dual LED flash, f/1.7 aperture, Portrait mode, HDR, and Pro mode. The device is capable of Slow Motion video recording at 480 fps. The front camera has a 16MP Sony IMX371 sensor with f/2.0 aperture and EIS, which takes care of your selfies as well as facial unlocking software. The company has also promised to roll out Android P beta update starting this week. OnePlus says that this will be available through the community.

On the UI front, the device comes with exclusive Avengers theme and five different Avengers wallpapers. If you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you'll get a first attempt at ordering a new OnePlus 6 for yourself, with access available to buy from 21 May itself.

SPECTACULAR: Over 1,500 fans and media attended the global launch of the OnePlus 6 at the Copper Box Arena in London. It also has copper coloured buttons inspired by Thanos's Infinity Gaunlet.

Notably, the OnePlus 6 is the company's first flagship phone with glass on the front and back, replacing last year's curved aluminum with various finishes of curved glass. There's Face ID for unlocking the handset (or you can use the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor).

The company's mantra has been to offer high-end specifications and top-notch performance at a much lower price compared to flagships from Samsung, LG, HTC, and Apple. The colour options include Mirror Black, Midnight Black and a limited-edition Silk White option. This is the highest storage that has ever been offered on a OnePlus phone and it looks like the company has reserved this for its special edition variant.
