OnePlus recently launched a new color option for its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 6T. The striking color option is called Thunder Purple. It’s only available in the company’s home market of China right now. It was believed that perhaps OnePlus may offer this color option in other markets later but that may not be the case.
The 8GB/128GB variant of the OnePlus 6T is only available in China for about $520. OnePlus didn’t say when it was announced if it would be selling the device in this colorway in any other markets across the globe.
There has certainly been a lot of interest from customers in this color option. Why wouldn’t there be, it does look really good. However, there’s bad news for those who have been holding out for this option as the company has confirmed that the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T will remain exclusive to China.
The company’s fans would certainly be hoping that it reconsiders this decision. It would net the company more sales if it decided to release this color option in other markets across the globe such as the United States. Whether or not the company decides to do that at some point down the road remains to be seen.
