Alleged in-hand photos show off the upcoming red OnePlus 6

Other than the new Red colour, rest of the specifications remain the same for this variant of OnePlus 6.

So in all likelihood, a red OnePlus 6 is coming, and it's coming very soon - you'll see "July 2" towards the end of the video, so it's reasonable to assume the launch is set for next week (coming Monday).

We haven't heard any official word from OnePlus yet, but popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee has tweeted a picture of the rear of a black OnePlus 6 with a red color phone just peeking out from the rear.

Some confirmation that a red OnePlus 6 is on the way comes from OnePlus itself. The last of the variants is no longer available to buy.

The teaser follows the launch of the sassy Silk White version of the phone, which hit the OnePlus store earlier this month and has been available in limited quantities since. Two images of the latest OnePlus handset in red have surfaced today. OnePlus 6 Red's design also incorporates a translucent orange layer with the red base layer to give the phone its glossy red finish.

OnePlus 6 Red has an amber-like effect at the back with an anti-reflective layer as well.

Nonetheless, if we do see the OnePlus 6 launch in a new color variant, it could be limited to India and China for now. We can expect the variant to pack 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage and arrive for the same £519 price tag. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Oxygen OS 5.1 on top.
