OnePlus has another red smartphone in its disposal today by announcing the red variant for the OnePlus 6 via the official OnePlus forums.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau says that due to the success of their OnePlus 5T Lava Red, they’ve decided to produce a red edition of the OnePlus 6, which they officially called the OnePlus 6 Red. This color variant will be offered alongside other OnePlus 6 color variants, namely Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Silk White (limited edition).

Other than the color, the only difference this variant has would be the memory configuration. The OnePlus 6 Red is going to be available only with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, compared to 6GB and either 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage with other color variants.

Most of the specifications remained the same, such as the same 6.28-inch Full Optic 19:9 AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 16MP + 20MP dual rear cameras, 16MP front camera, and 3,300mAh battery.
