OnePlus announced the OnePlus 5T in early October, the newest in its wallet-friendly line of smartphones, and it’s since gone on to break the company’s sales records. But OnePlus isn’t resting on its laurels. On Tuesday, it announced a red-colored limited edition OnePlus 5T “Lava Red” that’ll be exclusive to China.
OnePlus said the OnePlus 5T Lava Red will start at 2,999 RMB (about $450), which we’re assuming is for the base 6GB RAM/64GB configuration. If there’s a 8GB RAM/128GB — and that’s a big if, because OnePlus hasn’t released the Lava Red’s spec sheet yet — it’ll presumably cost 3,499 RMB (about $500).
For the uninitiated, the OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio display with a Full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip paired with up to 8GB RAM, and it’s got up to 128GB of non-expandable storage. The battery is 3000mAh, and the camera — a dual module with one 16MP sensor and one 20MP sensor — can produce the sort of out-of-focus bokeh effect seen on DSLRs.
The OnePlus 5T Lava Red is exclusive to China right now, but there’s a chance it’ll come to other regions eventually. We’ll have to wait and see.
