OnePlus confirms launch event for September 19, OnePlus 5 Special Edition incoming?

It looks like OnePlus is doing the same thing it did earlier this year when it launched a Special Edition OnePlus 3T developed in collaboration with Parisian retailer Colette. At the time (March 2017), only 250 units were available to purchase from the Colette store in Paris.

Next week, OnePlus will probably announce a similar device, but this time the Chinese company has teamed up with French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. The event is scheduled to take place in Paris on September 19, but no other details are available at the moment.

The invitation sent by OnePlus reads: “When the style meets its machine, one night in September in Paris,” a rather cryptic message that doesn't say too much about the product to be presented during the event.

If OnePlus will indeed announce another special edition of its flagship (OnePlus 5), the new device will most likely be available in limited quantities and possibly at a slightly higher price (but not by much).

Hopefully, we'll learn more about OnePlus' upcoming device in the coming days, although chances are the new phone will only be available to buy locally.

Same here, I have sent my Oneplus 5 back as the Jelly effect gave me motion sickness.

Is it really that bad in your device? I have the Oneplus 5 and it is really minimal and I only can see it when I try really hard to look for it. I forgot about its existence already.

You must not be using the phone other than flicking up and down the screen with your thumb for hours continuously. Or... Don't tell me you're riding the phone...since, you know, you said it gave you motion sickness.

If it is another refresh of the OnePlus 5, I don't have any words to say about that...

It'll probably have the iPhone X camera design in a horizontal layout, glass back and smaller bezels. Just hope they keep the headphone jack.
