Unless you live under a rock, you are aware of the fact that people went bonkers when the OnePlus 6T was about to be announced, I mean it’s the first ever phone from OnePlus which would be having an in-display fingerprint sensor and also the first phone from OnePlus which won’t be having the headphone jack, so it’s a win-win in that situation for some . Well, the official launch was supposed to happen on 30th October but because of an Apple Event happening on the same day they had to pre-pone it.
Keeping all that aside, after a week or two after the launch, OnePlus has now announced a new color variant for the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 6T thunder purple edition will be available for sale from 16 November via Amazon.in and OnePlus’s official webstore, one plus.in. The sale starts at 2 PM IST. The smartphone will be available offline too in Croma Outlets, Reliance Digital Outlets and also, OnePlus pop-up stores.
Now, on the hardware and software front, there are no major changes. The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple edition comes with the same 8GB RAM and 128GB storage with a price tag of $576 (Rs. 41,999), which is similar to the launch day price of the device.
OnePlus claims that this special edition was inspired by what OnePlus calls ‘lightning strikes at dusk’. The Thunder Purple variant has a gradient finish at the rear and it fades from black to purple under the glassy finish of the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus said in a post that it has paid more attention to detail with how the light falls and reacts to the ” haze, the roughness, gloss, transparency and reflective quality’ of the black glass.
“The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple is a stunning combination of power and beauty – the black-to-purple fade is like a thunderstorm on a summer night,” Pete Lau, Founder, and CEO, OnePlus, said. “We experimented extensively to test how light interacts with the colors in order to give people what might just be our most beautiful design yet.”
If you wanna get hands on the latest offering from OnePlus, the sale begins on November 16 on Amazon and OnePlus Webstore so keep an eye out for that one. Stay tuned to OneTechStop for more updates like these.
