OnePlus recently launched the 5T Sandstone White Limited Edition for global markets as well. The Lava Red variant comes with similar features and specifications as the original model in Midnight Black that was launched in November previous year. Who's looking to pick up the Lava Red OnePlus 5T in India? The company has used two anodic oxidation processes such as double blasting and AF coating to get the texture. The OnePlus 5T Star Wars was exclusive to select markets like India, and the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White is essentially the same phone - sans the Star Wars branding - for all the other markets like U.S. and Europe. It runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) with Oxygen OS and Oreo update is also on the way.

It features a 6.01-inch full HD (2160x1080) AMOLED display with an 18:9 ratio, 2.5D curved glass and Corning Glass 5 for protection. This phenomenal excitement reinforces the trust that our fans have instilled in us, making us determined to continue to bring fresh experiences.

Currently, the Lava Red is available only as the higher-end OnePlus 5T model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage.

The OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant features the dual-camera system of 16MP+20MP rear shooter with f/1.7 aperture on both lenses. On the front is another 16-megapixel sensor. Under the hood is a 3300mAh non-removable battery. The smartphone is also the first from the company to feature face unlock feature.

It comes with a full-metal body with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port for charging and data-syncing purposes, a bottom-facing speaker out, a 3.5mm audio jack and dual-SIM (nano-SIM) support.
