OnePlus 6 Red Edition Design
OnePlus has used a new film coating process to achieve the distinct amber-like depth and clarity on the OnePlus 6 Red Edition. As per the company, the process has never been attempted before in smartphone industry. They added an anti-reflective layer on the back to allow more light to reach the bottom layers before they reflect off the device.
This added transparent orange layer mixes with the base layer which is red and hence it achieves a radiant glossy red back panel. It also sports a metallic red shimmer coupled with the mirror-like fingerprint sensor and also contrasts with the silver camera lens accent.
“We believe power and attitude can be both elegant and humble, and we have strived to achieve this with the OnePlus 6 Red Edition. We worked to avoid an overly bright red color while still capturing a sense of self-confidence and positivity. Achieving the amber-like effect took several months to refine and perfect,” said Pete Lau, CEO, OnePlus while launching the OnePlus 6 Red edition.
