More recently, the company launched the OnePlus 5T, but, it’s only offered in Midnight Black color. However, OnePlus also launched two more variants of the 5T later on – the Lava Red color variant and the Star Wars Limited Edition. Well, the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition is already sold in India, however, according to a latest report, the company is also going to launch the Lava Red color variant in the country later this month.

Unlike the Midnight Black color variant of the 5T, the Lava Red color variant only comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. It’s priced at ¥3499 (around ₹34,220) in China, however, chances are it would be priced similarly to the Midnight Black variant at ₹37,999 in India.

Well, as of now, there’s no word from OnePlus regarding the launch of the Lava Red color variant of 5T in India, however, we expect the company to start teasing its launch through social media soon if it really plans to launch it in India later this month.
