OnePlus 5T Lava Red Limited Edition hits China
Although the OnePlus 5T arrived as a minor update to the OnePlus 5, this new flagship managed to smash the launch day sales record in the OnePlus smartphone family in just six hours. Now, a brand-new limited edition of this smartphone comes to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the OnePlus brand. Sadly, it is not quite the limited edition phone that some fans of the Star Wars franchise were waiting for.
Insiders apparently familiar with OnePlus recently revealed that a Star Wars-themed limited edition OnePlus 5T was on its way. Since it has not arrived yet, we can only assume that it is still hanging around the company's launch pad and might hit the market some day after all. However, most of those waiting to get their hands on a special OnePlus smartphone should be happy with the OnePlus 5T Lava Red Limited Edition.
As it usually happens with such special handsets, if we leave the (quite attractive, to be honest) design aside, there is nothing special about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered OnePlus 5T Lava Red. This limited edition flagship has been released to celebrate the four years that OnePlus has spent in the crowded smartphone market and suits its purpose well.
Sadly, there is no information about its availability outside China, where it should go on sale soon starting at CN¥2,999 (roughly US$455). The price mentioned above can get you the 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage version, while the one with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage retails for CN¥3,499 or about US$530.
