OnePlus 6T Thunder PurpleEarlier last week, Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched it new flagship dubbed as OnePlus 6T. At the time of launch, OnePlus introduced only two colour variants- Midnight Black and Mirror Black. But now the company has added another Thunder Purple colour variant of OnePlus 6T. The new colour variant will go on sale in China from tomorrow i.e. November 7. There is no official word yet on the launch of the phone for other markets outside of China. However, considering that India is one of the key markets for the company, we expect the Thunder Purple colour variant to go on sale in India soon.

In terms of pricing, the new Thunder Purple comes in single variant i.e. 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and is priced in China at CNY 3,599 (approx. Rs. 38,000).

Some of you might be wondering that why the company didn’t unveil this colour variant at the time of official launch. Well, it seems to be more of a marketing strategy as it puts OnePlus 6T back in headlines of all leading news publications and tech blogs.

Here’s a quick recap of OnePlus 6T features and specifications for those who are unaware…
