- OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant will be available November 15 in Europe and North America.
- OnePlus previously announced the Thunder Purple color for China.
- The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant features 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Even though OnePlus already announced the OnePlus 6T in Thunder Purple for China, it was only a matter of time until other regions got a taste of the new color. Right on cue, OnePlus announced that the Thunder Purple color will make its way to Europe and North America.
What’s nice about Thunder Purple is the way it goes from this pinkish hue at the bottom to a darker hue at the top. The images also give the impression that the Thunder Purple color takes on a dramatic purple color at certain angles, though we will have to see the effect for ourselves. Regardless, the Thunder Purple color chic and isn’t overly garish.
Those that picked up the OnePlus 6T in Mirror Black or Midnight Black at launch might feel slightly disappointed by the news, though. In less than a week, a new variant is here that they didn’t have an opportunity to buy and that OnePlus hadn’t officially discussed.
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.
Apart from the new color, everything about the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T is the same as the other color variants. That means a 6.4-inch display with 2,340 x 1,080 resolution, teardrop notch, dual 16- and 20-megapixel cameras, Snapdragon 845 processor, 3,700mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie out of the box.
You can pick up the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage starting this Thursday, November 15 for $579. European pricing is unknown at the time of this writing, though we should expect it to sell for 529 pounds in the U.K. and 569 euros for the rest of Europe.
This looks to be a limited edition color, so you might want to scoop one up soon if you want the best affordable Android flagship on the market.
