"Achieving the amber-like effect took several months to refine and ideal", OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said in a press statement.
The red OnePlus 6 will be available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and will cost as much as the Midnight Black and Silk White versions of the phone that came in the same configuration - $579 / Euro 569.
At the end of the day, we can probably all agree this is an extremely stylish piece of mobile equipment, and yet it's priced the same as 8GB RAM/128GB storage Midnight Black, Mirror Black and Silk White editions.
According to the company, the "amber-like" Red variant is the boldest, the most eye-catching and has the most distinct colour so far. The OnePlus 6 Red was carefully crafted to reflect who we are and what we do.

Ranbir Kapoor may be enjoying the blockbuster opening of his film 'Sanju' , but his father Rishi Kapoor now wants him get married. And the film met with all such expectations as the mesmeric screenplay did magic from First Day First Show itself.
Following the trend from a year ago, OnePlus has just announced the OnePlus 6 Red variant for its flagship smartphone.
As well as that, the engineers had to ensure that the red colour chosen wasn't dimmed or darkened, and so they added an evaporated layer of brightening film, costing roughly $5 (around £3.80) per device, just to get the final finish. As the color red represents courage and inner confidence, this red model also shows power. It will cost $579 or €569 from next Tuesday, while in India it will be available from July 16 for 39,999 rupees.
Deciding on this color was not without its challenges. "OnePlus 6 Red is a true representation of our values regarding product and industrial design".
From the photos and video below, you can see that the red OnePlus 6 is much more bright and vibrant than the current black and white models.
Lau also said that the handset required the use of a new film coating process that has never been used on a smartphone before.
