Limited Edition Lava Red OnePlus 5T goes on sale tomorrow
The OnePlus 5T is getting a new color version: a stunning Lava Red, coming just in time for Valentine's Day.
The Lava Red OnePlus 5T will go on sale tomorrow, on February 6th, and will be sold until supplies last. It will only be sold in the 8GB RAM / 128GB storage version that costs slightly more than the base 6GB RAM / 64GB storage model. Apart from the color and the fact that it is only sold in one configuration, the Lava Red 5T will be just like the commonly available Midnight Black edition.
A matching red ceramic fingerprint scanner is the cherry on top
The color itself is the big feature here and OnePlus explains that the phone goes through two sandblasting techniques and then gets an anti-fingerprint layer to create this finish. On the back, you can find a matching red ceramic fingerprint sensor, another tiny but important detail.
And to show how great of a gift the Lava Red 5T will make for Valentine's Day, OnePlus has shot this funny commercial featuring the beautiful Emily Ratajkowski.
We should note that the Lava Red OnePlus 5T was made available at the end of 2017 to Asian markets, but it has never officially made it to North America and Europe.
And if you are quick with your order, you get the following bonuses from OnePlus:
- Order the OnePlus 5T Lava Red before February 8th to qualify for free priority shipping and receive your device within 2-3 days
- Take advantage of a 15% discount when purchasing two of the same accessories, including OnePlus Bullets (V2), a selection of OnePlus Bumper Cases, a selection of OnePlus Silicone Cases and the OnePlus backpacks
