As suggested by reports a few days back, OnePlus has launched a new colour variant of its flagship OnePlus 6T. And it’s none other than Thunder Purple colour that was reported about earlier.
However, as of now, the new colour variant of OnePlus 6T is only available in China. If you can’t wait to but the newly launched OnePlus 6T device, then you must settle for Midnight Black and Mirror Black colour options that the smartphone was initially launched in.
It is worth noticing that the gradient Thunder Purple colour variant of OnePlus 6T would only be available in 8GB RAM/128GB storage option. If one goes by Google Translate, the option listed on OnePlus’ China website is ‘Electro-optic Violet’. It will be made available for sale in China on November 6 and is priced at CNY 3,599. As of now, there is no word on the new colour variant’s India availability or pricing.
Last month, OnePlus 6T’s Thunder Purple colour variant was spotted on the company’s support page and also got listed briefly on Amazon’s Germany website. Like its predecessor, OnePlus may also launch a Lava Red or a Silk White variant of the OnePlus 6T. However, as of now, there is no word about it.
To recall the specifications of the recently launched smartphone, OnePlus 6T comes with a 6.41-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display that has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and sport a waterdrop-shaped notch on top.
