The latest OnePlus smartphone with the in-display fingerprint scanner and other top-end features will now also sell in Thunder Purple color option.

The report was attested when OnePlus launched the new color option in China, and then despite contradictory reports, brought the interesting color option to India within just a week after its launch in China. Now that the OnePlus 6T will start selling in the Thunder Purple Color, let’s review some of the finer aspects of the flagship Android smartphone that succeeds the barely six months old OnePlus 6.
