OnePlus Launches Lava Red OnePlus 5T; Mumbai Store Opening Today!
The Lava Red edition is the latest in the series of special editions of the OnePlus 5T.
OnePlus is on a launching spree! After launching the OnePlus 5T a mere four months after the OnePlus 5. Then they followed it up with a Star Wars Limited Edition. It was followed by the Sandstone White Limited Edition. The best part of these limited editions was their price. It was the same as the regular edition.
Now, OnePlus is ready to launch the latest iteration of the 5T, the Lava Red edition. OnePlus describes it as a radiant red colour which is inspired by the dynamic nature of lava with colours that change under different types of light. Internally the smartphone carries the same specifications as the rest of its brethren. Like the previous special editions, this one is only available in one variant, 8GB RAM + 128GB Storage.
OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition – Powerfully Radiant
OnePlus claims to achieve the radiant Lava Red colour through an extremely accurate combination of temperature, consistency and baking time which has less than 0.01% variation. It uses two anodic oxidation processes along with double blasting and an AF coating which ensures its signature texture and feel. The final finish is smudge-proof and feels very premium in hand.
Speaking at the launch, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India, said,
“We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition. This phenomenal excitement reinforces the trust that our fans have instilled in us, making us determined to continue to bring fresh experiences.
