The OnePlus 5T flagship in white sandstone finish is finally official and will hit the market on January 9. Just as expected, it is similar to its white Start Wars edition that only launched in India.

Not so long ago, the Indian market received the OnePlus 5T Star Wars limited edition. Available in both white and black, this special flagship was covered using an attractive sandstone texture. Now, those who dreamed of buying such a handset can finally celebrate - the Sandstone White OnePlus 5T is official and will hit the market next week.

The new OnePlus 5T variant will hit the market with more memory and storage than the original Midnight Black version, which had 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Other than the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage, the Sandstone White OnePlus 5T has no surprises inside, since it sports the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor as its sibling. The dual rear camera setup remains unchanged, combining a 16 MP and a 20 MP sensor.

The manufacturing process of the sandstone texture is quite complex, reveals OnePlus: "First, we sandblast the aluminum alloy and apply a primer for added protection. A color temperature layer ensures the white tones are balanced and natural. Next, we apply a blend of natural minerals and white oil paint, lending the device its stunning blend of white and gray tones and signature Sandstone feel. Finally, UV light is used to refine the texture of the phone and ensure hardness and durability."

Fortunately, the price does not change, so the Sandstone White OnePlus 5T will hit the market on January 9 for US$599, the same as the 8 GB/128 GB black variant.
