Below you can see the first leaked press shots of the OnePlus 6T, and we'll be sure to let you know if and when the company announces the new color. What's more, it seems as if the device will go up for preorder in a few hours. While the same gradient can also be seen along this OnePlus 6T variant's edges, the pattern will not be exhibited by the phone's bezels. OnePlus 6T Product Manager Louis S in the same session highlighted that receiving an IP certification increases the cost the cost of the device by $30 (roughly Rs. 2,200) that isn't of company's aim at the present stage.

Further, the colour variant appears locked to the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage option, which starts at $769 CAD.

OnePlus has always touted its devices as "flagship killers", offering top-tier performance and specs at a much lower price than the competition. "You will use OnePlus" proprietary fast charging method in order to replenish that battery, though that method is no longer called "Dash Charge", as OnePlus got sued a while back because they used that name.

What if I already have an older OnePlus device? The OnePlus 6T also comes with a "teardrop' notch, which makes it better-looking than the OnePlus 6, though that's all a matter of taste".

[Update:] The phone is official, as it's just been launched in China. And it looks like folks in China who have had their sights set on the new OnePlus smartphone will have one more color to consider: Thunder Purple.
