OnePlus to soon launch a new color variant of OnePlus 6T in India

Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus announced the OnePlus 6T last month on October 29, and then a day later – on October 30 – OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6T in India. The OnePlus 6T is offered in two colors – Mirror Black and Midnight Black. However, OnePlus will soon be launching a third color variant of 6T in India – Thunder Purple.

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant

Last week, OnePlus launched the Thunder Purple color variant of the OnePlus 6T in China, and now, the company is all set to launch this new color variant in India as well as for global markets. OnePlus hinted at the India launch of Thunder Purple variant by tweeting “Elegance infused with the brilliance of thunderstorms. #ThunderPurple is coming”.

OnePlus didn’t say when exactly is the Thunder Purple variant of 6T coming to India, but, going by the tweet, we are expecting OnePlus to bring this new variant to India by the end of this month. Needless to say, apart from the differences in color, there are no differences between the Thunder Purple variant, and the Mirror Black and Midnight Black variants of OnePlus 6T.
