The Lava Red edition of the OnePlus 5T breaks up the monotony of black/silver/gold phones out there, but the company is doing a teasingly slow rollout. Well, Europeans and Americans will finally be able to get in on the action tomorrow.
This is a limited edition, so it will be available only while supplies last. Sales start 10am GMT tomorrow (February 6) and the price is $560 / €560 / £500. If you order by February 8, shipping is free.
This is for the OnePlus 5T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Yes, the limited edition sells for the same price as the regular Midnight Black model. The bold red color was not easy to achieve, the aluminum was anodized between two rounds of sandblasting (plus a coat of anti-fingerprint coating) to get the look that OnePlus was after. You can see how it looks in our hands-on here.
OnePlus alum Emily Ratajkowski is back to promote the new color:
PS. OnePlus is offering a 15% discount if you buy two of the same accessory, e.g. Bullet headphones, bumper cases and even the OnePlus backpack, so you and a buddy can save some cash.
Apple isn't the first one to have red, so does Samsung, Xiaomi, etc. It's way back in 1999 with Nokia. Ez facts
It's just a colour. Who cares who copies who.
