OnePlus 6T unboxing and first look


Then again, OnePlus typically releases its smartphones in several colors after their launches, so a new color variant at some point should have been expected.

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple edition looks stunning in the gradient finish, first for the company.

OnrPlus 6T was launched globally a couple of weeks back and was later followed by the launch of Thunder Purple variant in China.

The new OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple Edition will go on sale in India starting November 16 via,, Reliance Digital, Croma, and all OnePlus exclusive offline stores.

The OnePlus 6T is also the first smartphone in the USA to feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor, and it's the first OnePlus phone ever to launch in the U.S. with a carrier partner.

The gradient fades from black to purple under the frosted glass-backed OnePlus 6T, with the evocative "S" curve racing across the back and highlighting the depth of color. The phone will be available from 11am on November 16. There was also an image with a velvet looking material in the new color option with the companies logo on it and also with the hashtag stating ThunderPurple is coming.

In case you missed it, OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 6T in India last month. The OnePlus 6T comes with a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display at the front with a resolution of 2340x1080. Instead, it is available in 128GB and 256GB storage variants. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and an octa-core processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Those that picked up the OnePlus 6T in Mirror Black or Midnight Black at launch might feel slightly disappointed by the news, though.

The OnePlus 6T is the latest phone in a series of "flagship killers" created by the ambitious OnePlus to disrupt the traditional phone market. It has a 3,700mAh battery under the hood, capable of up to 20W fast charging with the bundled adapter.
