OnePlus has launched the Sandstone White version of OnePlus 5T. The smartphone is listed on the company’s official website for a price of $559 which is roughly Rs 35,400. The smartphone will be released starting January itself, however, the company has not shared any official information regarding it’s expected India arrival.
OnePlus brought its latest flagship in three different colour shades prior to the Sandstone White. Here’s the chronological listing of all OnePlus 5 variants so far.
OnePlus 5T Midnight Black
To recall, the Chinese handset maker introduced its premium mid-range flagship phone in Midnight Black colour option last November. The near-bezel-less OnePlus 5T arrived in India on 21st November. Just like its predecessor, the OnePlus 5T (Review) Midnight Black version came in two memory and storage variants – 6GB RAM/64GB storage for a price of Rs 32,999 and 8GB RAM/128GB storage for a price tag of Rs 37,999.
OnePlus 5T Lava Red
The new flagship received a fresh coat of paint in late November. OnePlus unveiled a Lava Red edition of the OnePlus 5T in China. The phone was launched in single storage variant- 8GB RAM/128GB storage for a price of Yuan 3499 (around Rs 34,150). OnePlus is widely anticipated to bring the Lava Red version in India in two storage option- 64GB and 128GB and carry a price similar to the midnight black version. The phone was rumoured to launch on January 26 but we strongly believe the bright Red edition to debut a few days earlier than that.
OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition
OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars-themed Limited edition model in India in December. The handset was released in conjunction with the latest episode of Star Wars movie franchise – Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The design language is similar to the standard edition, but few facets are influenced by the ‘planet Crait’ from the movie. The phone has a red alert slider and ‘Star Wars’ inscribed on the rear panel made out of white Sandstone. Other than the cosmetic changes, the phone shares similar innards as the higher storage OnePlus 5T model- 8GB RAM/128GB storage and commands a Rs 1,000 premium.
OnePlus 5T Sandstone White
May the 4th be with you! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. The Sandstone White is the fourth and newest shade the OnePlus 5T got today. The phone actually looks all the more same like the Star Wars Limited edition model except for the Star Wars branding at the back and the red button. The OnePlus 5T Sandstone White borrows similar finish like the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 with sandstone texture on the rear side prevalent in those devices. OnePlus (via TheVerge) says it takes 75 minutes to apply and complete the sandstone finish process to the device and that it involves painting, baking the phone’s shell numerous times. Like the Star Wars edition, the new White colour version pegs massive 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
