More hype: OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple launched in India

The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant will be available in 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant and it will sell at a price of Rs 41,999. Thankfully, the company is now going to release a new color variant, which would be a welcome respite from the monochromatic color scheme. Initially, the handset was launched in Mirror Black and Midnight Black color variants for Rs. 37,999 and the new variant is also expected to be priced the same.

OnePlus 6T has got another color edition in India. The phone will be made available only in the 8GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage starting 11am on November 16 online across Amazon.in and OnePlus Store, and offline at Croma retail outlets, Reliance Digital outlets, and OnePlus exclusive stores. The only difference is in the colour of the phone. The color features a subtle gradient that fades from black to purple. "We experimented extensively to test how light interacts with the colours in order to give people what might just be our most attractive design yet".

Wall Street savaged by tech sell-off
The S&P 500 has now declined for five straight sessions and had finished higher on only four of the 17 trading days this month. Brent crude, the benchmark for worldwide oil prices , dropped 0.5 per cent to $76.52 a barrel in London.


Talking about launch offers, HDFC credit and debit card users will be able to get an instant discount of Rs 1,500, which will bring down the cost to Rs 40,499. The OnePlus 6 was a great phone but diehard Android fans complained that it looked like an iPhone X clone. It's sad because OnePlus itself polled its users and multiple times defended the headphone jack as something important, something that makes it stand out, and now, it has just suddenly decided that it will no longer include one in its latest phone, despite the overwhelming majority of its users voting in favor of keeping the good old jack. Unlike the earlier OnePlus phones, the OnePlus 6T doesn't come in 64GB variant. It's worth noting that the special variant comes only in 8GB+128GB configuration. Unlike the Midnight Black and Mirror Black editions, the Thunder Purple Edition comes with a gradient back that fades from black to purple.
