OnePlus' Silk White 6 Goes On Sale Today for $579
OnePlus kicks off sales of the Silk White color variant of the OnePlus 6 at 10am (ET) today. The Silk White color is being sold as a limited edition. It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The phone costs $579 and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. The OnePlus 6, revealed last month, is made from metal and two slabs of Gorilla Glass 5. OnePlus says it mixed pearl powder into the coating of the Silk White, which is layered six times to create the frosted texture. The phone runs the same Snapdragon 845 processor as the glossy and matte black colors, and has the same cameras, and same OxygenOS features. OnePlus is also selling its OnePlus Bullets Wireless earphones today from 10am for $69.
The OnePlus 6 is here to convince you that no one needs a $700, $800, $900, or $1,000 smartphone. Heck, you don't even need a $600 smartphone.
The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt to convince you that ultra-pricey flagships are unnecessary; why spend $800 to $1000 on a phone when you can get one that's nearly as good for just over $500? The 6 is an attractive metal-and-glass device that has the latest design from OnePlus, the latest specs from Qualcomm and others, and the latest Android software from Google.
