Valentine's Day is just around the corner and to help you celebrate it properly, OnePlus has announced the Lava Red OnePlus 5T, which made a debut in China and India late a year ago, is making its way to the West. For now, we've got a few that were made well in advance and a single OnePlus that'll MAYBE come in time for the holiday itself, if you're super lucky. The red color goes around the phone's edges and across its back and their buttons are also red as well.
OnePlus is excited to bring the OnePlus 5T Lava Red, a color variant powerfully radiant and synonymous with the OnePlus brand. The difference is the color combo on the outside - on the sides and the back.
Or, at least that's what OnePlus would like you to do this Valentine's Day. I've been using the Midnight Black model in a red silicone case for the past couple of months and, if I could switch, I wouldn't think twice about it. It will only be sold in the 8GB RAM / 128GB storage version that costs slightly more than the base 6GB RAM / 64GB storage model.
The color, which first launched in other regions at the close of 2017, has been hotly anticipated and we now have a limited number coming to North America and Europe while supplies last. This device will be available immediately if not soon through OnePlus dot net.
Unlike the Sandstone White version of the OnePlus 5T that was released last month, this new Lava Red OnePlus 5T features a smooth aluminum finish just like the original OnePlus 5T in black.
Speaking about the OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei said, "An AF layer is applied to the body of Lava Red to enhance the luster of the color, while limiting the noticeability of fingerprints on the metal".
