OnePlus has finally started selling the OnePlus 6 Midnight Black variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB inbuilt storage in India. The model is now available for sale on Amazon priced at Rs 43,999 and will start shipping from July 11. The variant will also be up for grabs on the official OnePlus website and offline channels starting July 14.
This won't be the first time we will see a OnePlus 6 with 8GB/256GB configuration in India. The OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition was earlier launched in India for Rs 44,999. But the device was a special edition and was only available in limited numbers.
The premium 8GB/256GB Midnight Black variant was announced along with the other variants (6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB) but has only been made available for purchase now.
To recall, the OnePlus 6 was launched in India back in May in Midnight and came in two variants — 6GB/64GB in Mirror Black colour and 8GB/128GB in both Mirror Black and Midnight Black colour options. The Marvel Avengers Limited Edition was launched in March and an 8GB/128GB Silk White variant followed in June. The company also announced an 8GB/128GB Red Edition special version recently, which will go on sale from July 16.
Coming back to the latest 256GB Midnight Black variant, it will have the same specs we have seen in other versions, barring the RAM and inbuilt storage capacity.
