China-based smartphone manufacturer OnePlus on Monday unveiled the “red edition” of its latest flagship OnePlus 6 with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage for Rs 39,999.

The new variant of OnePlus 6 would be available for purchase from July 16, the company said in a statement.

The smartphone was launched earlier in May for Rs 34,999 for the 6GB RAM+64GB internal storage and Rs 39,999 for the 8GB RAM+128GB internal storage variant.
