Unfortunately, OnePlus didn't announce the color variant at the launch event. This smartphone looks basically the same as the OnePlus 6T Midnight Black model, in every way except one, the color of its back and sides. The posts from the tipster come with image renders of the newest OnePlus 6T colour variant.

Moving on to the storage options, it seems like the device will be only available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage.

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple variant could be launched soon, according to tipster Ishan Agarwal.

The launch of OnePlus 6T marked several firsts for the Chinese smartphone maker - first phone to get carrier support in the USA, first with an in-display fingerprint scanner, first without 3.5mm headphone jack and indeed the first phone with the highest price tag. Hopefully, the device will appear elsewhere in the world, but if it does, it will likely keep the $579/€579 tag like the Mirror Black and Midnight Black 8/128 GB variants. There is also another 16MP sensor housed inside the notch. A 3.5mm headphone jack is not included in the package, while the device features an in-display fingerprint scanner instead of a rear-facing capacitive fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus has always touted its devices as "flagship killers", offering top-tier performance and specs at a much lower price than the competition. The Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T does pop next to those two, quite a bit, and that's the whole point of it. In China, OnePlus released a new color for the OnePlus 6T this week, Thunder Purple, and we're officially jealous. That's a new color we haven't seen on any previous OnePlus handsets.
