OnePlus 5T is getting a new colour variant in India. OnePlus posted an image teaser of a new colour variant of the OnePlus 5T on Twitter that will be launched on Thursday, January 11. The image teaser gives an indication of the launch of the Lava Red colour variant of the smartphone. The OnePlus 5T Lava Red colour variant was initially launched in China last year in November as a limited edition model.
OnePlus on Twitter shared an image teaser showing the upper rear side of OnePlus 5T in a bright red colour, which hints at its Lava Red colour variant. The image goes with the caption that reads – “Powerful radiance is right around the corner. 2 days to go!” The price and availability details are not known yet but should be officially announced on the launch day of OnePlus 5T Lava Red colour variant. The OnePlus 5T costs Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant and Rs. 37,999 for the 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant. The OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition is only available in the 8GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage variant, priced at Rs. 38,999 in India.
The OnePlus 5T Lava Red colour model will sit next to already available limited editions of the smartphone in India, namely, Star Wars edition and the Midnight Black edition. It’s worth noting that OnePlus also launched the Sandstone White colour variant of OnePlus 5T in China and the US earlier this month.
