OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition model with custom design from the hit Avengers franchise goes on sale in India today. For fans of the hit Marvel series, the new OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition handset has the Avengers’ insignia on the back, a carbon fibre texture below the rear glass casing, and the Alert Slider in gold colour; not just this, even the OnePlus logo on the back is in gold colour in this variant. The smartphone comes with five preloaded Avengers wallpapers too. Even the box has been custom designed to reflect the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition model’s superhero heritage with the bundled Iron Man-themed back cover. The box has the Avengers logo too, and inside is one of the six pieces of Infinity Medal.
The new OnePlus 6 (Review) variant has more than just the design on its side though — it is the only variant in India with 256GB of internal storage.
