More hype: OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple launched in India

More hype: OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple launched in India

Thunder Purple debuted in China last week, but at the time, it wasn't clear if the variant would be a regional launch or if it would be expanded elsewhere.

Then again, OnePlus typically releases its smartphones in several colors after their launches, so a new color variant at some point should have been expected. Initially, the handset was launched in Mirror Black and Midnight Black color variants for Rs. 37,999 and the new variant is also expected to be priced the same.

The new OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple Edition will go on sale in India starting November 16 via Amazon.in, oneplus.in, Reliance Digital, Croma, and all OnePlus exclusive offline stores. The third colour option in the smartphone's lineup offers a gradient effect with various shades that change with the way light reflects on the phone. The phone uses OxygenOS based on the latest Android 9 Pie, and it is available in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants.

Talking about launch offers, HDFC credit and debit card users will be able to get an instant discount of Rs 1,500, which will bring down the cost to Rs 40,499.

Scott to step down from elections board responsible for certifying results
Unofficial election results show Nelson trailing Republican Scott by 0.14 percentage points, which amounts to around 12,500 votes. The machine recount was triggered in Gillum's gubernatorial race against his GOP opponent, Ron DeSantis , as well as in the U.S.

Other than that, the OnePlus 6T is sold in the matte Midnight Black and the glossy Mirror Black options for the same configuration.

Just like the OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 6T also comes with Snapdragon 845 processor inside it. In the photography department, it comes with dual cameras at the back - a combination of 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. In less than a week, a new variant is here that they didn't have an opportunity to buy and that OnePlus hadn't officially discussed. There is a 3,700mAh battery on the back with 20W fast charging feature and has a 16MP selfie camera on the front.

The OnePlus 6T skips on the headphone jack-so you're left with either Type-C or Bluetooth sound accessories.
