Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T back in November in Midnight Black color, and later on, the company launched Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T in China. The OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant was available exclusively in China, but last week, it was launched in India as well. And starting today, it is now available for purchase in the country alongside the regular Midnight Black variant.
The OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant, like the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition, will be available in limited quantities, hence, if you really dig this color, you will have to get one quickly before OnePlus runs out of stock.
The OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant has a design that’s exactly the same as the Midnight Black edition, however, needless to say, it does come with its back that’s painted red. Moreover, the power button, volume rocker and alert slider are also coated with red paint.
That said, the front of the Lava Red remains black in color. The underlying hardware also remains unchanged. However, while the Midnight Black variant is offered in two configurations – 6 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB internal storage – the Lava Red variant is only offered in the latter configuration.
“We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition. This phenomenal excitement reinforces the trust that our fans have instilled in us, making us determined to continue to bring fresh experiences. We are happy to kickstart 2018 with the much requested OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition, our first ever red smartphone, that will certainly appeal to those looking for the perfect balance of beautiful design and powerful features.” said Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India.
