Some smartphone manufacturers often release new color options for their flagship handsets a couple of months after they hit the market. It’s a good way to drum up sales for a handset that has been out for a few months. OnePlus isn’t waiting to do that for the OnePlus 6T. It’s now offering a new color option for the device in China merely weeks after the device was released.
Recently leaked promo images had suggested that the company may soon offer a new color option for the device. The new color option was reportedly going to be called Thunder Purple. That has been officially launched today. The Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T is now available for purchase in China.
Nothing other than the color is different about this variant. It’s the same OnePlus 6T that’s available elsewhere, the only difference being the color option that’s quite unique in its appearance.
This is the 8GB RAM variant with 128GB of storage. It comes with the same Snapdragon 845 processor. OnePlus is selling this for CNY3,599 which is around $520. The company is yet to confirm if and when this color option may be available in other markets. It will surely find a lot of takers for it outside China as well.
