A new OnePlus 5T (sandstone version?) might be released next month

Yesterday, OnePlus posted a teaser video featuring people reacting to a mysterious product hidden inside a box. As you can see in the video - embedded above - most people seem to like the texture of the product, and some say it's reminiscent of the sandstone variants of the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2.


In case you didn't know, unlike OnePlus' newer smartphones, the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 did not have metal backs. On the sandstone versions of these two handsets, the back had the texture of real sandstone, with a grippy, distinct feel. So we're thinking that OnePlus may have been working on a sandstone variant of the 5T. We'll find out if that's true in January 2018 (next month), when OnePlus plans to "unbox the mystery."


If you're thinking that the mysterious product could be a new OnePlus 5T protective case, we're pretty sure it isn't. That's because OnePlus is already offering a sandstone case for its current flagship phone.


At this moment, the OnePlus 5T is sold only in Midnight Black in the US and most other markets. While the phone also has red and Star Wars editions, these aren't (and won't be) widely available around the world. But maybe the sandstone OnePlus 5T - assuming this is indeed what the mystery box is hiding - will be released in North America and Europe at some point. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
