Should you buy the OnePlus 6T?

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple

Pictured on the Chinese OnePlus website alongside the Mirror Black and Midnight Black colours, the Thunder Purple is reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in Lilac Purple. The phone's frame is also purple-colored, and those are the only design differences compared to all the other OnePlus 6T models. Besides that, the phone still houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, between 6GB and 8GB RAM, and an internal storage capacity of either 128GB or 256GB. It's only available in China right now, but hopefully that availability expands at some point in the future. Huawei certainly takes the charm away with its Mate 20 Pro Twilight Blue, but OnePlus 6T in its new avatar challenges the likes of Huawei's flagship to the T. "You will use OnePlus" proprietary fast charging method in order to replenish that battery, though that method is no longer called "Dash Charge", as OnePlus got sued a while back because they used that name.

Well, it seems that all the rumors and leaks were more or less spot on when it comes to the existence of the device.

If, however, you're coming from a OnePlus 5 or older, this is a great time to upgrade, especially if you're already a T-Mobile customer or have been considering switching. And it looks like folks in China who have had their sights set on the new OnePlus smartphone will have one more color to consider: Thunder Purple. The posts from the tipster come with image renders of the newest OnePlus 6T colour variant.
