  • The shots include renders and photographs, giving us a peek at the unannounced smartphone variant.
  • The variant is tipped to be available at the end of November.


The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant may have leaked in some new press materials. The images, which arrive via MrGizmo, show off several images of the new phone, including renders and live photos.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6T only a week ago in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colors. However, the company typically releases its smartphones in several colors; more OnePlus 6T variations were anticipated somewhere down the line.

The handset takes on a pinker or more rose gold hue in the renders, while it seems to be a darker, two-tone purple in the photographs (it has a similar aesthetic to the Huawei P20 Pro Twilight Purple model). We can’t say for sure which of the colors it will look most like in real life, but we presume it will be the darker shade.

We first saw evidence for the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T’s existence last week. Amazon.de reportedly listed the unit at 579 euros (~$660) with a November 30 shipping date. The OnePlus 6T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage also costs 579 euros in Germany.
