But, today in China the company announced Thunder Purple variant of the OnePlus 6T that comes with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. This variant should be coming to India sometime during this month end or early next month going by the company’s previous history.

OnePlus 6T houses an in-display fingerprint scanner that uses the light to identify the fingerprint and unlock the smartphone on 0.34seconds and also supports face unlock. There is no presence of the 3.5mm headphone jack, the company is packing in a Type-C adapter for those who want to use the wired earphones. Moving on to the camera department, at the rear it features a 16MP(Sony IMX 519)+20MP(376K) vertical dual camera setup with LED flash, f/1.7 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization(OIS)+Eelectronic Image Stabilization(EIS) support and 16MP Front Camera, f/1.7 aperture along with screen flash.
