OnePlus 6T 'Thunder Purple' color variant could launch soon
OnePlus could launch a new 'Thunder Purple' color option of its latest OnePlus 6T flagship. This new variant was listed on OnePlus's India support website but was soon pulled down after getting spotted. Interestingly, this variant was earlier spotted on Amazon Germany, suggesting a global launch. Notably, OnePlus 6T is currently offered in Midnight Black and Mirror Black colors. Here's all about OnePlus 6T.
OnePlus 6T features a downsized waterdrop-like notched display with a marginally slimmer bottom bezel as seen on the OnePlus 6, to boast an increased screen-to-body ratio of 86%. With the new notch, the notification LED light has been killed. On the rear, there's a dual-camera setup housed in a glass panel but no dedicated scanner - thanks to the all-new in-display fingerprint sensor.
OnePlus 6T comes with an optical in-display fingerprint scanner - something we've seen on a few smartphones now. The display lights up a section where you position your finger; the optical sensor reads and authenticates your fingerprint from beneath the screen. And while OnePlus claims this feature will unlock the device in 0.35 seconds, you may have a few hits and misses.
OnePlus 6T, thanks to the new notch, sports a bigger 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340pixels) AMOLED display, a taller aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with support for sRGB and DCI-P3 color gamuts. Notably, the display is protected by Corning's toughest-ever Gorilla Glass 6.
OnePlus 6T sports a dual rear-camera setup comprising a 16-megapixel (f/1.7) main sensor, paired with a 20-megapixel (f/1.7) secondary sensor and LED flash - same as OnePlus 6. However, the company has offered an improved Portrait mode and an all-new Nightscene which offers better images in low-light. Up front, the 6T retains its predecessor's 16MP (f/2.0) RGB camera that assists Face unlock feature.
Internally, the OnePlus 6T is same as the OnePlus, except for a bigger battery and new OS. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of non-expandable storage. The phone packs 3,700mAh battery with support for 20W Dash Charge and runs Android Pie-based Oxygen OS 9.0.3 that offers revamped gesture-based navigation.
The OnePlus 6T supports dual-SIM cards (Nano), 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802a/c (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS/A-GPS, and a USB Type-C (v2.0) port. Notably, there's no headphone jack - blame the bigger battery and in-display fingerprint sensor. The waterdrop notch houses a three-in-one ambient light, proximity, and RGB sensor Further, the phone also supports DiracHD Sound and DiracPower Sound.
OnePlus 6T costs Rs. 37,999 for 6GB RAM/128GB storage model, Rs. 41,999 for the 8GB/128GB variant and Rs. 45,999 for the 8GB/256GB option.

Notably, the phone will go on open sale starting today i.e. November 3 via OnePlus brand stores, Reliance Digital and Croma retail stores across India.
