Bangalore, 12 November 2018: Taking design inspiration from ‘lightning strikes at dusk’, the limited edition OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple will be coming to India starting November 16, 2018.

The special edition of the much-lauded OnePlus 6T comes with a gradient back that fades from black to purple under the frosted glass-backed OnePlus 6T, with the evocative ‘S’ curve racing across the back and highlighting the depth of colour. OnePlus has paid meticulous attention to detail to craft the perfect look, with a focus on how light reacts to the glass’ haze, roughness, gloss, transparency and reflective qualities.

“The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple is a stunning combination of power and beauty – the black-to-purple fade is like a thunderstorm on a summer night,”Pete Lau, Founder and CEO, OnePlus, said. “We experimented extensively to test how light interacts with the colours in order to give people what might just be our most beautiful design yet.”

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience.

If you don’t already know it, Now you do! The Asus Zenfone 5Z will be available for just 25k. Have a OnePlus device? Even better! Well read on and we will tell you how.

So every year, Our E-Commerce giants, Flipkart and Amazon do a massive sale with great deals for consumers. This time Flipkart in collaboration with Asus will be providing the Asus Zenfone 5Z for a super price of 25,000INR.

Even if you don’t want to exchange your phone, The 5Z at 25k is still a great deal. The Zenfone 5Z has a Snapdragon 845 with storage option up to 256GB and 8GB of RAM. The 5Z also gets a microSD card slot as well as dual speakers which OnePlus 6 misses out on.

Asus is also offering an awesome deal on its mid-segment device, The Zenfone Max pro M1. Well now, the M1 will start from just 9,999. A phone with Snapdragon 636 for under 10k, however, I will suggest you go with the one with 6GB RAM and 64Gb storage as it has a much better camera compared to the other ones. The same will be available for 12,999. Compared to phones like Nokia 6.1 pro or the Moto M Power, The M1 makes much more sense.

So overall, This time Asus has killed the Competition. The 5Z for 25k is a really good deal and with all that extra offers, you can grab the phone for as low as 8k.

So what do you think about this deal? Let us know in the comment section below!
