OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant launched in India

Two days ago, we told you that OnePlus was likely to launch the OnePlus 5T Lava Red color variant in India today. And, as expected, this Chinese smartphone brand has launched the Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T today in India. The Lava Red variant until now was exclusive to the Chinese market, but it has now been launched in India as well.


The OnePlus 5T Lava Red color variant has design similar to that of other variants of the 5T, however, it comes with a black front white the back, power buttons, volume rocker and alert slider coated with red paint.


That said, the innards of the OnePlus 5T Lava Red are exactly the same as that of the regular variants. However, while the regular Midnight Black variant comes in 6 GB RAM and 8 GB RAM variants, the Lava Red variant, like the Star Wars Edition, only comes in 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage configuration.

That said, with the launch of Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T in India, customers now have three options to choose from – OnePlus 5T in Midnight Black, OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, and, the OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant.

Inspired by the dynamic nature of lava with colors that change under different types of light, the radiant Lava Red color shade is achieved through accurate combination of temperature, consistency and baking time with less than 0.01% variation. Additionally, it uses two anodic oxidation processes, using double blasting and an AF coating to ensure the texture and feel. A completely redesigned wallpaper unique to this edition further enhances the user experience.said OnePlus in a forum post.
