OnePlus finally launched the OnePlus 6T, bringing fans the upgraded flagship this year complete with new features. OnePlus 6T comes with noted upgrades over its predecessor, OnePlus 6, which include an in-display fingerprint scanner, bigger battery and display, new night mode in camera and more. But the company limited the colour options to just two, Midnight black and Mirror black.

Of the most recent releases, OnePlus 6's Silk White was a popular colour variant, but the company did not launch it in the 6T. But there's no reason to be disappointed as OnePlus has something exciting in store for us all.

OnePlus had reportedly listed OnePlus 6T in Thunder Purple hue online after the keynote event in New York. Even though the listing was quickly taken down, it did not escape the vigilant tipsters. OnePlus has a tradition to launch a limited edition model with every flagship and the Thunder Purple could be 6T's own special variant.

OnePlus 6T in a new shade certainly boosts excitement among fans and potential buyers who want something other than black. But for those who want the ever-green black, can go right ahead and pick either Midnight or Mirror black from online and offline channels.

Buyers can read our OnePlus 6T review to be sure of what you're spending your money on. The highlights of the OnePlus 6T include optimum performance, lasting battery, great, sturdy design, best mobile OS and such. The camera is pretty much same as the OnePlus 6 and the in-display fingerprint scanner is great when compared with phones with similar tech, but there's room for improvement.

As for the Thunder Purple colour, there's no exact word on how soon we can expect its release. But the company will surely make itself heard when there are plans to launch the new colour option.
