As we expected Oneplus 6T with a new shade gone official in China on Monday called Thunder Purple variant which was already reported by us a few days before. The new variant could be only available in China and will go on sale on November 7. The smartphone has been priced starting at RMB 3,399 for the variant with 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. The smart also got more two storage variants with 8GB RAM with 128GB internal storage and the 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage have been priced at RMB 3,599, and RMB 3,999 respectively.
The new phone is different from the original only by its appearance while the internals and design remain same as the other colour variants. The smartphone powered by a Snapdragon 845. It has a bigger screen and an under-display fingerprint scanner, while the smartphone includes the waterdrop-like notch and also it dumped the 3.5mm audio socket from the bottom of the device which is why the phone comes bundled with a Type-C bullets earphones. The device comes packed with a much bigger battery of 3700mah battery.
On the software front, There is only change present device is that the smartphone doesn’t run the Android-powered Oxygen OS operating system, and instead run Android-powered Hydrogen OS. The between the two versions is that Hydrogen OS does not come with integrated Google services because these services are not available in China.
The launch of the new variant in India is yet to be confirmed but we expect that new variant could unveil in India soon.
To recollect, Last month the upcoming Thunder Purple colour was spotted on the company’s support page and was briefly listed on Amazon Germany. As seen in previous OnePlus handsets, the Chinese manufacturer can be expected to release several colour models of its smartphone, with past offerings including Lava Red, Sandstone White, and Silk White.
