OnePlus was an exception with the 6T, following the Henry Ford mantra of "any colour, as long as it's black".
But OnePlus is not completely averse to different color options, as we've seen in the past. There's no word on global availability, but it will cost 3,999 Yuan (£399) and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.More news: Andrew Lincoln to Lead Three The Walking Dead Movies on AMC
We hope it does, though, as this color scheme looks like the bee's knees. So far though, Thunder Purple was reportedly being listed on the OnePlus India official page. It is worth noting that the OnePlus 6T in China comes with HydrogenOS, not OxygenOS, though it is quite possible that this variant of the phone may become available outside of China in the near future as well, though OnePlus did not share any info regarding that as of yet. There's no excuse. If you want it, there are plenty of options for getting it. It's powered by a Snapdragon 845, it has a bigger screen and an under-display fingerprint scanner, it's got 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, and a bigger battery.

OnePlus has always touted its devices as "flagship killers", offering top-tier performance and specs at a much lower price than the competition.
Previous OnePlus devices have come in Lava Red, Sandstone White, Silk White and Amber Red but there's now no sign of the company releasing those colors for the newer 6T. Special edition OnePlus 6T models are also a possibility, though we'll see what will happen.More news: Drunk Japan Airlines pilot was 'almost 10 times over limit'
