After launching the color variant in China, OnePlus has announced it’s bringing the thunder Purple OnePlus 6T to North America. The device in all its dark purple glory is set to launch on November 15th. It’ll come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and cost $579 when it launches at OnePlus.com. No word yet on whether it’ll launch on T-Mobile (the obvious retail outlet for this specific color) but we’ll let you know if we hear anything.
Usually, OnePlus will release new colors of its smartphones after launch to drum up more press and get added attention. But as it turns out, the company might not even need it. According to the company, the OnePlus 6T is already doing astonishingly better than the standard OnePlus 6, with launch day sales being 86 percent higher than before. This is likely due to the fact customers can now buy the phone through T-mobile and, therefore, giving the device a better presence in the minds of consumers. But it’s still cool to see the phone meet such high demand so early on.
