If you’re a OnePlus admirer and are interested in getting the latest OnePlus 6T, then you might want to check out the Thunder Purple edition they launched this past week. The new variant only sees a change in looks but still comes at the same price.

In addition to the new color, OnePlus also brought an update which improves the fingerprint scanner and adds November’s security patch, at least for the handsets on T-Mobile.


Quiet for Xiaomi this one, which is not very common for the Chinese tech giant. They did launch a new device though, the 4GB/128GB variant of the Mi 8 Lite; click here to learn more about that.

As far as gadgets are concerned, Xiaomi released a smart toilet, a smart electric heater and a chair massage cushion.
