While it’s hard not to think of Huawei’s gradient designs when looking at these promotional images of this unreleased OnePlus 6T option, it wouldn’t be fair to call the phone a copycat. Those are some pretty unique shades the 6T is rocking, ranging from a darker violet to something more closely resembling lavender.
Besides, we can probably all agree more smartphone manufacturers need to “rip off” the gradient effect to help high-end mobile devices shine (both figuratively and literally speaking).
It remains to be seen if this is the only additional color option planned for the OnePlus 6T or if perhaps there’s also a red or white version in the pipeline. By the way, there are no words on a Thunder Purple release date yet, but an official announcement could drop any day now.
