While it was slightly disappointing to see the OnePlus 6T launch in just two colour schemes − Mirror (aka glossy) Black and Midnight (aka matte) Black − we’re familiar enough with the company to know it would be a matter of time before new options arrived.

That’s a shame, because it looks very pretty indeed, featuring a gradient finish rear panel that’s almost black at the top, and a pale purple at the bottom. The front of the handset, meanwhile, is black. You can take a closer look here.
That’s not to say that the Mirror Black and Midnight Black models are unattractive. They’re just… a little samey.
However, the company has previous, and we imagine it has more than just Thunder Purple up its sleeve for the 6T. Silk White and Amber Red variants of the OnePlus 6 came out months after the handset launched. And a similar thing happened with the OnePlus 5T, which came out in Sandstone White and Lava Red a little while after initially only launching in Midnight Black.
So there’s hope.
In China, the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T is available with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
