Update, November 5, 2018 (11:31AM EST): The article below gives some leaked imagery of the OnePlus 6T in an unreleased color variant: Thunder Purple. However, it looks like some areas of the world already have access to this variant, with the Chinese OnePlus website already showing the item for sale.
Here’s a screenshot of the site’s home page in case OnePlus changes its mind:
You can also visit the specific page for the OnePlus 6T where you can order the Thunder Purple variant. It comes in one configuration (8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage) and costs the same as the other color variants in that configuration, which is 3,599 Chinese yuan (~$520).
Looks like it’s only a matter of time before OnePlus officially reveals the variant for other parts of the world.
Original Article, November 5, 2018 (07:23AM EST): The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant may have leaked in some new press materials. The images, which arrive via MrGizmo, show off several images of the new phone, including renders and live photos.
OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6T only a week ago in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colors. However, the company typically releases its smartphones in several colors; more OnePlus 6T variations were anticipated somewhere down the line.
The handset takes on a pinker or more rose gold hue in the renders, while it seems to be a darker, two-tone purple in the photographs (it has a similar aesthetic to the Huawei P20 Pro Twilight Purple model). We can’t say for sure which of the colors it will look most like in real life, but we presume it will be the darker shade.
We first saw evidence for the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T’s existence last week. Amazon.de reportedly listed the unit at 579 euros (~$660) with a November 30 shipping date. The OnePlus 6T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage also costs 579 euros in Germany.
