OnePlus 6T AMA Session Answers Lack of IP Rating, Notification LED Light; Reveals New Features in Work for Previous Models

OnePlus 6T was unveiled last week only in two variants of Black, but today the device is introduced in a new shade at the China launch party. If you come to think of it, for $549 or $579, you're getting a phone that equals, and, in some cases, outperforms other smartphones that cost much more. Sorry the break bad news to you, but the company revealed the Thunder Purple paintjob will remain exclusive for China and now has no plans of bringing it to any other Western market, the U.S. included. In the United Kingdom the new device will be out to buy from today (November 6) from OnePlus online as well as O2, EE, Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse, John Lewis and Amazon. You pay $30 more for 2GB of RAM.

"We think not", the executive said. OnePlus 6T features an in-display fingerprint sensor called "Screen Unlock". It's pretty hot, but according to OnePlus, the color will stay a China exclusive for the time being. OnePlus did release the OnePlus 6 in Mirror Black, Midnight Black, Silk White, and Red color variants, though the red-colored OnePlus 6 arrived later on, so it's possible that OnePlus is aiming to release either a red-colored OnePlus 6T down the line, or some other color. They have a great global presence. Special edition OnePlus 6T models are also a possibility, though we'll see what will happen. In exchange, you get one of the cleanest forms of Android - arguably better than even Google's own software experience - along with a sleek, futuristic design and blazing fast performance.
