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.

The OnePlus 6 Red is hardly unique or, indeed, a surprise.

If you want to get your hands on the new red color yourself, it will be available across all global markets OnePlus phones are sold, exclusively in the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage configuration. The OnePlus 5T Lava Red was inspired by the color of cooling lava. It'll be available in Europe and North America for $579 starting July 10th, and OnePlus says that it'll restock its Bullets Wireless headphones on that date too. The OnePlus 6 is already available in three colour options- Midnight Black, Mirror Black and Silk White. The company claims the effect cost an extra $5 per phone. We're not sure how many red shades are there on the color wheel but we welcome any red gadget.

As usual, a new color finish revealed a new set of technical challenges that the company had to tackle. It also represents an inner confidence and courage.

As for creating the new color, Lau said OnePlus used "a new film coating process that's never been attempted before in the smartphone industry". Although costing an additional US$5 per limited edition model to produce, the company will retail the limited edition OnePlus 6 Red at the same price as the regular models. There is a kind of power in red, which the OnePlus logo has always tried to articulate.

The OnePlus 6 Red will be featuring the same specs as other models. "OnePlus 6 Red is a true representation of our values regarding product and industrial design". Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the OnePlus 6 Red Edition smartphone.
