Avengers Infinity War is by far the biggest movie from Marvel Studios till date. With the movie on course to gross over $2 Billion globally, it seems like there is OnePlus that has taken fancy to the Avengers franchise. After globally launching the OnePlus 6 in London, the company has announced a day later that there is the Avengers Infinity War edition as well that might fancy you if you are a Marvel Universe fan. The OnePlus 6 Infinity War edition will be launching only in India and China markets for now and it is one phone that can be a collectors edition in the future. So what’s different on the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War War edition than a regular OnePlus 6? Let’s find out.(Image: Siddhartha Sharma/ News18.com)
What’s in the Box?
The first thing that you will notice with the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War edition is the box. It’s like a gift box for a Marvel Universe fan, with a big Avengers logo on top and on the side a copy that reads, ‘ Infinite Power. In your Hands.” This is to highlight that not only do you possess a special edition smartphone, but also a powerful one, probably referring to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC that the OnePlus 6 comes with that’s backed by 8GB RAM. Once you open the box you are greeted with the device itself that’s slightly different than the regular OnePlus 6. We’ll get to that in a bit. Once you dive into the box you also get a very chunky Avengers Infinity War phone case as well, the one that we got on our review unit was the one that had the IronMan on it. There is also a DASH charger and a USB Type-C cable as well, but what’s intruding here is a medallion inside the box that’s made of metal and has a similar colour to the Thanos Gauntlet that was seen in the Movie. Now OnePlus says that there are six of these medallions and you can get any of the superhero medallions inside the box, we got the Thor Medallion in our box.(Image: Siddhartha Sharma/ News18.com)

On the optics front the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War version just like the regular OnePlus 6 sports a dual-camera module as its primary camera with one sensor of 16-megapixel with f/1.7 aperture and a supported camera module of 20-megapixel. The 16-megapixel camera now comes with Optical Image Stabilisation and EIS. The camera is also now capable of shooting 4K videos at 60 FPS.

The OnePlus 6 runs on OxygenOS based Android 8.1. There is also OnePlus’ signature Alert Slider on the device but the position of this alert slider that switches the phone between silent, vibrate and ring mode has moved from the left edge of the device to the right on the OnePlus 6. Upfront you get a display that has a notch on the top and measures at 6.28-inches. This is also a Full Optic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio.
