“Here’s how gorgeous the new Silk White Edition of the OnePlus 6 is”

OnePlus has just created waves in the smartphone world (again), with its latest flagship the OnePlus 6 (review). The new device brings a lot to the table and offers immense value for your hard-earned cash. As far as the colour options on offer are concerned, the brand’s philosophy with the smartphone so far has been something on the lines of “you can have any colour as long as it’s black”. Don’t get us wrong – the Mirror Black, Midnight Black and the Avengers Edition (first impressions) variants of the OnePlus 6 all look great and have a unique character of their own when it comes to looks. But, they’re all black. That changes today with the availability of the Silk White Edition. If you ask us, we’d say that the Silk White variant is really the best looking among the lot.

The Silk White Edition features the same specs and the same glass body as the other variants, but the colourway is completely different. In fact, we haven’t seen anything else quite like it. The matte-finished device stays smudge-free and doesn’t gather any fingerprints, and more importantly, exudes class. OnePlus says it has used pearl powder in its construction, and after getting a close look at the smartphone, we think they aren’t kidding. The Silk White Edition of the OnePlus 6 features a pearl finish on its body, complete with a warm white tone and a sheen that’s hard to describe in words. The frame, plus the accents around the rear camera module and the fingerprint scanner are coloured in a shade that’s somewhere between champagne and rose gold, adding to the elegant look. In terms of specs, you get the same 6.28-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED display with a notch up top, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 16MP + 20MP dual rear cameras, a 16MP selfie shooter and a 3,300mAh battery with Dash Charge support. Worth noting that the Silk White variant is only available in the 8GB + 128GB configuration, and is priced at Rs 39,999.

So without further ado, here’s a look at the OnePlus 6 Silk White from all angles, though we’re duty-bound to tell you that pictures don’t really do it justice.
