OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant launched in India: Pricing, Availability and Offer Details

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6T in India last month on October 30. The smartphone is offered in two colors – Mirror Black and Midnight Black. However, the company yesterday teased the launch of a new color variant of OnePlus 6T in India – Thunder Purple – without divulging any details about its availability. Well, soon after teasing it, OnePlus has finally launched the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple in India which was launched first in China last week.


Unlike the other two variants, the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant comes with a gradient color – with black up top that fades into purple as it goes down below. That said, apart from this color difference, everything across all three color variants of the OnePlus 6T remains the same. However, it’s worth noting that the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant is only available in 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage configuration.


Commenting on the launch of OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said, “The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple is a stunning combination of power and beauty – the black-to-purple fade is like a thunderstorm on a summer night. We experimented extensively to test how light interacts with the colours in order to give people what might just be our most beautiful design yet.
