It only took a few minutes for the first limited batch of OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition units to sell out in India, while "standard" models with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage are nowhere to be found in the US, UK and Canada.
The oft-rumored Samsung Galaxy J6 is officially out in India at a starting price of around $205, with a higher-end J8 available for the rough equivalent of $280, and the A6 and A6+ priced slightly higher.
Amazon Prime members in India will get early access to OnePlus 6 sales on May 21, followed by the rest of the country the next day. The Marvel Avengers Limited Edition will be released a week or so after that.
Speed is the game, OnePlus is the name. Will its latest Android smartphone keep up? It has 480fps video capture, a new Snapdragon 845 chip and a new storage option. All for a little more money than the OnePlus 5T.
Xiaomi might be the champion of overall smartphone shipments in India, but Samsung still has the regional premium crown. Then again, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been eclipsed by the OnePlus 5T during Q1 2018.
This is far from officially confirmed information, but it's definitely not unreasonable to expect a 64GB OnePlus 6 configuration to fetch Rs. 36,999 in India, up from the 5T's Rs. 32,999 starting price.
Samsung continues to expand the popular budget-friendly Galaxy J smartphone family, with the J2 2018 officially unveiled in India, and a J2 Core likely in the pipeline running Android Oreo (Go Edition) software.
