Hopefully, OnePlus would reconsider its decision because it won't be too far-fetched to say that in its current state, the OnePlus 6T is rather bland color-wise.

Just yesterday, the rumored Thunder Purple version of the OnePlus 6T quietly popped up on OnePlus' Chinese website, revealing both the storage loadout and the pricing of the device, which would sell for the equivalent of ~$519 in China. The posts from the tipster come with image renders of the newest OnePlus 6T colour variant. While other phones like the Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone X climb past the $1,000 mark, the OnePlus 6T stays below $600, even for the upgraded model, and boasts a Snapdragon 845 chipset and up to 8GB of RAM.

But OnePlus is not completely averse to different color options, as we've seen in the past.

Here in the U.S., we have two variants of OnePlus 6T, Mirror and Midnight, but both are a Black color. OnePlus launched the "Thunder Purple" colour variant of its flagship smartphone in China.

The OnePlus 6T boasts an in-display fingerprint scanner, a 3,700mAh battery and runs Android Pie out of the box. The OnePlus 6T also comes with a "teardrop' notch, which makes it better-looking than the OnePlus 6, though that's all a matter of taste". It is a bit narrower, a bit thicker, and a bit taller than the OnePlus 6, in case you're wondering.

The device features 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel cameras on the back, the former features an f/1.7 aperture lens, 1.22um pixel size, and OIS, while the second one comes with the same aperture lens size, and sports 1.0um pixel size.
