The OnePlus 6T will soon be available in a Thunder Purple variant as spotted by a leakster on the OnePlus India support page. The new variant was briefly listed on Amazon Germany as well before it was taken down. The Thunder Purple variant will have a gradient color with various shades and will likely sport a glass back. It is not known when this variant would be made official but the current leaks seem to suggest a possible launch by the end of this month.

Now that the OnePlus 6T is official, the time has come for some news on upcoming color variants. We reported about a new possible purple variant just a few days before the official launch and now, we have some press renders for what OnePlus calls the Thunder Purple variant. These press renders were revealed by tipster Ishan Agarwal.

From these images, we see that the Thunder Purple variant has a gradient color with different shades. This variant in all likelihood will be a glass back model implying that it is more close to the current Mirror Black option than Midnight Black. According to the Amazon Germany listing last week that has since been taken down, the Thunder Purple variant will sport 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage and is expected to go on sale in Germany on November 30 for 579 Euro. 

For those who have been living under a rock, the 6T borrows a lot from its predecessor, the OnePlus 6. It uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and comes in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants. The storage in the base variant has been bumped up to 128 GB and tops out at 256 GB. The camera hardware is the same as well — you get a 16 MP f/2.0 Sony IMX 371 selfie shooter with EIS along with dual rear cameras (16 MP f/1.7 Sony IMX 519 with EIS and OIS + 20 MP f/1.7 Sony IMX 376K). OnePlus said they have taken the feedback from the community seriously and have improved the low light performance of the cameras thanks to a new Nightscape mode (fancy speak for an HDR mode variant) that allows for better dynamic range and low noise in low light. Nightscape mode will also be coming to the OnePlus 6 via an OTA update soon. The 6.41-inch screen is slightly larger than the OnePlus 6 and now sports a teardrop-shaped notch and an in-display fingerprint sensor. 

It is not known when the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant will hit shelves. Speculation points to the end of this month and knowing OnePlus, the variant will launch in India as well around that time. We aren't aware of other color variants as of date but will keep you posted as soon as we hear about them.
