Some leaked press materials from MrGizmo (via Android Authority) show several images of the OnePlus 6T in a dark purple, which the materials refer to as "Thunder Purple." The back of the phone seems to feature a light and a dark shade of purple mixed together, creating a very pretty effect.

The 6T arrived on retail shelves Nov. 1, though it's currently available in two variants — Mirror Black and Midnight Black. OnePlus has a track record of rolling out new colors for its phones long after launches. The OnePlus 5T appeared in a Sandstone White version a couple months after its debut, and a red edition of the OnePlus 6 arrived not long after that phone's launch earlier this year. A purple phone will certainly be a welcome addition for 6T buyers looking for a more exciting design.

(Image credit: MrGizmo/Android Authority) listed the purple version of the phone at €579 ($660) with a Nov. 30 shipping date last week.

Whatever the color, the OnePlus 6T comes with a super-fast in-display fingerprint sensor, a gorgeous display, an improved camera, and Android Pie out of the box. It's also the first OnePlus phone to be offered through a carrier, with T-Mobile selling the 6T. You can buy the phone unlocked from OnePlus's website with the base Mirror Black version (6GB of RAM and 128GB) starting at $549.
