The Thunder Purple variant of the OnePlus 6T joins the Mirror Black and Midnight Black colours to offer more choice to the buyer. While the other two black variants have different textures, the Thunder Purple variant introduces gradient colours to a OnePlus phone for the first time. It simply looks stunning with the purple slowly turning into black as you go up. The gradient colours are under a frosted glass panel that’s also much less smudge prone as compared to the Mirror Black variant that we had tested for the review.

“The black-to-purple fade is like a thunderstorm on a summer night,” Pete Lau, Founder and CEO, OnePlus, said. “We experimented extensively to test how light interacts with the colours in order to give people what might just be our most beautiful design yet.” Earlier, at the launch event, OnePlus had claimed the two black variants have been the most selling. With the OnePlus 6T

The OnePlus 6T Thunder Variant not only looks good, but is also a beast when it comes to performance. It’s only available in the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage though and not in the 8GB + 256GB variant. OnePlus’ reasoning for that is that the mid-variant has been the most popular. Further, there’s the Snapdragon 845 SoC with LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 storage, all of them contributing to the blazing fast speeds the phone offer.

The OnePlus 6T also created headlines for doing away with the physical rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for an in-display one. It’s placed at the bottom part of the screen and uses Synaptics’ 4th generation optical in-display fingerprint sensor to do it, and OnePlus claims the phone can be unlocked in less than a second. That’s a tall claim which mostly stands except it only worked 8 out of 10 times when we tested. Also, in a bid to stay modern (and to offer a bigger battery), the OnePlus 6T sacrificed the 3.5mm headphone jack. You do get a Type-C to 3.5mm dongle out of the box though, and if that’s not enough, you can buy the Type-C Bullets IEMs or the Bullets Wireless.

The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple touts a dual-camera unit at the back. It’s the same hardware as the OnePlus 6 — A 16+20MP unit where the secondary sensor is used only for depth sensing. However, even with keeping the hardware intact, the company introduced some nifty software features. One to enhance low-light photos called Nightscape and the other to improve portrait mode shots name Face Lighting. Both the modes work as advertised, but they’re not without their caveats. To know what those are, read our full review here. 
Up front there’s a 16MP camera with the same hardware as the OnePlus 6 and it’s one that works just as well as the OnePlus 6.
