The 'Thunder Purple' OnePlus 6T is Coming to the UK After All

The variant was recently launched in China where it got a limited time exclusive release. Today, OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 6T in Thunder Purple will be available in the USA on November 15 - 3 days from now. But, in a odd turn of events, that's not the case. You'll be able to purchase one starting 9AM ET on Thursday, November 15.

The only difference with the Thunder Purple 6T is its colour. Describing the refreshing new colour variant, OnePlus said it is inspired from "lightning strikes at dusk", which is something worth sharing a thought over.

That colour looks a lot like the bright purple phones we've been seeing from the likes of Samsung, though OnePlus has added an "evocative "S" curve" on the back of the phone to "highlight the depth of colour".

As mentioned above, the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple edition will be available from November 16 on, at 2 PM, and in Croma outlets, Reliance Digital outlets and all OnePlus exclusive offline stores starting 11 AM.

In case you missed it, OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 6T in India last month.

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 6 is one of my favorite Android phones ever. It's worth noting that the special variant comes only in 8GB+128GB configuration. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 6GB/ 8GB of RAM and 128GB/ 256GB of onboard storage. In the photography department, it comes with dual cameras at the back - a combination of 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. Now, the carrier partner in question is launching a new promotion that is another first for OnePlus: For the first time ever, people in the USA can get a new OnePlus flagship phone for free.
