Reports were coming from all corners suggesting that a new Thunder Purple variant of OnePlus 6T is in the works. Just earlier today press renders were leaked showcasing the new gradient finish. Now since it has debuted in China, other countries are also expected to get it in the coming months. OnePlus 6T is powered by an octa-core 2.8 GHz Snapdragon 845 accompanied by an Adreno 630 GPU. On the front has a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Protecting the display is Corning’s new Gorilla Glass 6 which was launched earlier this year. The smartphone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box and is fitted with the same 16MP+20MP primary camera module and a 16MP selfie camera.
Other main features of OnePlus 6T include the in-display fingerprint scanner, a tear-drop notch, a 3,750 mAh battery and improved low light capabilities.
