The OnePlus 5T official price around the world is $499/£449/€499 for the 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage version, but in China it is a bit cheaper at CNY2,999 or around $454.
The catch is that it arrives without Google services. OnePlus optimized the OS for the Chinese market (which doesn't play well with Google services) and instead of OxygenOS 4.7, it will ship with HydrogenOS, still based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The 8 GB + 128 GB option is also cheaper - CNY3,499 or $530, as opposed to the global version, which costs $560.
The phone is available in the original Black in addition to the China-exclusive Lava Red color.

The Huawei Honor v10 is temptingly awesome with top of the line specifications just like the Mate 10, between it and the Oneplus 5T, which one should I go for?
Glad I'm in China, I'll gladly buy the lava red variant. Red is the new trend now.
Yes, you can buy it because Oneplus can remotely change the OS from hydrogen OS to Oxygen OS for you. But bear in mind that both the lava red and the black versions come stock with hydrogen OS as Google and its related services aren't allowed in Chin...
