Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T is now official

Following the images that surfaced earlier today, OnePlus has just announced a new variant of the OnePlus 6T, the so-called OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple model.

OnePlus 6T features a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED notched display with 19:5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 6. You won't get water resistance or wireless charging, nor are the cameras quite up to par with more expensive phones like the Note 9 and Pixel 3. If you haven't received the OTA yet, the update is also available through OnePlus' official download page.

The Chinese firm does have a habit of releasing extra colours soon after launch with the OnePlus 6 getting a limited edition red design in the months that followed the initial launch. Besides that, the phone still houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, between 6GB and 8GB RAM, and an internal storage capacity of either 128GB or 256GB. Sorry the break bad news to you, but the company revealed the Thunder Purple paintjob will remain exclusive for China and now has no plans of bringing it to any other Western market, the United States included.

Details of the device were unveiled in NY a week ago with headlines focusing on OnePlus being the second manufacturer to bring a under-glass fingerprint reader to the mass market. There's no excuse. If you want it, there are plenty of options for getting it. However, you can also buy the OnePlus 6T from T-Mobile.

If you're already rocking a OnePlus 6 or even a 5T, then don't worry. It's certainly more eye-catching than the other color options for the OnePlus 6T right now, offering a gradient color scheme with black at the top, which gradually blends into the purple shade. OnePlus launched the "Thunder Purple" colour variant of its flagship smartphone in China. If the company opts to release this phone internationally, it will become available in both Europe and the United States, in addition to a number of other markets out there, quite possibly in India as well, but we'll see.
