Yes, there was a red OnePlus 5T a year ago.

"We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition". As yet there is no word on any future availability in Australia and with OnePlus making such stunning-looking - and performing - phones we can only hope that they decide to sell it directly to us sooner rather than later.

The OnePlus 6 Red edition comes packing 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space, which is the same spec as the equally lush Silk White device, and this hardware partners the phone's powerful Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor.

A few days ago, OnePlus teased us with a odd commercial that seemed to suggest a new color of the OnePlus 6 was coming.

To achieve the distinct amber-like depth and clarity on the OnePlus 6 Red edition, OnePlus has used a new film coating process that has reportedly never been attempted before in smartphone industry. To maintain a bright coating, the design team made a decision to include an evaporated layer of brightening film that cost around $5 to make crystal clear.

Other than the new color option, nothing is changed. It also represents an inner confidence and courage.

The OnePlus 6 Red is described by company CEO Pete Lau as a "true representation of our values regarding product and industrial design", with a shade of red that's "passionate but with a level of visual restraint", as well as not too bright and therefore "visually burdensome".

Deciding on this color was not without its challenges. "We worked to avoid an overly bright red colour while still capturing a sense of self-confidence and positivity". The scarlet announcement of the cherry-cheeked phone has just landed, and next week you'll be able to order a vermilion-tinted version of the OnePlus 6 yourself.
