Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6T last month on October 30 in India. It was initially offered in two colors – Mirror Black and Midnight Black. However, earlier this week, OnePlus launched the Thunder Purple variant of the OnePlus 6T in India, which goes on sale in the country today.
The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant will be available for purchase on Amazon India and OnePlus India’s official website at 2 pm today. However, it will be available in limited stocks, so if you really want to buy this Thunder Purple variant, you will have to be quick.
This OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant comes with a gradient color with black up top that fades into purple as it goes down below. The smartphone still has a glass back and the same design as the Mirror Black and Midnight Black variants. Besides, it’s needless to say that the hardware on the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant is also the same as other variants. But, do note that Thunder Purple variant is only offered in one configuration – 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage.
Just like the other variants of OnePlus 6T, the Thunder Purple variant is also powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC and boots up to Android 9.0 Pie which is the latest version of Android. The smartphone comes with a notched display, but the notch is smaller than the one on the OnePlus 6. The 6T also comes with in-display fingerprint scanner instead of a conventional one that’s found on the OnePlus 6. Furthermore, the OnePlus 6T also comes with a larger battery, but ditches the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Commenting on the launch of OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had 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.“
