OnePlus announced the 5T in Lava Red color exclusively for the Chinese market. It got sold out instantly in the first flash sale on December 17 and the same thing happened today at the second one. The company is expected to push another bunch of sexy red OnePlus 5T devices on January 9 at 10:00.
The OnePlus 5T in Lava Red does not differ a lot from the original Midnight Black version. It has Snapdragon 835 with octa-core CPU and a dual camera on the back with a 16 MP + 20 MP setup.
Since this color of the 5T is currently only offered in China, it comes with Hydrogen OS, instead of the global Oxygen OS with Google services.
For now, just the 8GB/128 GB variant is listed in the Chinese OnePlus store for the price of CNY3,499 ($530/€450).

Well the OnePlus 5T already looks like the iPhone 7 plus. With it now being in red makes it look even more like the RED Apple product. I don't think the person was only referring to the color.

And I still have my Maroon red S3 which was released way before Apple does . I also don't get why people always associate red with iPhones lmao.
