OnePlus 6T Will Come In A New Thunder Purple Colour Scheme

Unfortunately, OnePlus didn't announce the color variant at the launch event. If you haven't received the OTA yet, the update is also available through OnePlus' official download page.

The OnePlus 6T was announced barely over a week ago, yet it's already made its way to the hands of many consumers. You can head over to their website, regardless if you are from the United States or another place, and select the color options and storage of your choice. Aside from a few small features the two ran almost identical versions of Oxygen OS, all of which make upgrading from a OnePlus 6 a very hard sell.

As of yet, there's no indication the Thunder Purple variant will come to other countries, but I'm hoping it does because it looks excellent. The device comes with two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM), while you can not expand its storage using a microSD card, the company does not offer that option. 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. The OnePlus 6T also comes with a "teardrop' notch, which makes it better-looking than the OnePlus 6, though that's all a matter of taste". Up front, there's a 16-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and fixed focus. It is a bit narrower, a bit thicker, and a bit taller than the OnePlus 6, in case you're wondering. It's certainly more eye-catching than the other color options for the OnePlus 6T right now, offering a gradient color scheme with black at the top, which gradually blends into the purple shade.

Interestingly there's more night camera news as well, since the Pixel 3's Night Site Mode has been ported to the OnePlus 6 and 6T as an unofficial app (via Ubergizmo).
