    Carl , Feb 1, 2018 :


    What we do at OnePlus is fueled by a passion to change and improve the world of tech. This passion lies at the heart of the OnePlus 5T. As a reflection of the fundamentals of what we do, the OnePlus 5T was a true return to form for our brand and our community. With our Limited Sandstone White Edition, we brought a OnePlus classic back in a big way. For our latest Limited Edition version of the OnePlus 5T, we’re turning towards the color that has become synonymous with OnePlus: Red.

    This is the OnePlus 5T Lava Red, a radiant new variant of our latest flagship. Defined by its striking shade of red, our latest design effort is at once restrained and audacious. Months of fine-tuning and experimentation led to a device that seamlessly blends our distinct shade of red with the robust all-metal body of the OnePlus 5T.

    An AF layer is applied to the body of Lava Red to enhance the luster of the color, while limiting the noticeability of fingerprints on the metal. Twice anodized, and double sandblasted, the Lava Red color feels like a natural part of the metal and highlights rather than obscures the OnePlus 5T’s design ID. Our overall vision was one of restraint and radiance, resulting in a truly stunning device.

    This lovingly crafted device arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day. So, if you’re looking to for a hot gift this year, share this limited edition with your partner, or treat yourself. There's no time like the present to show yourself a little lovin'. Order your OnePlus 5T Lava Red starting at $559 on February 6 at10:00AM ET/ CET/ GMT/ HKT/ EET. If you order your OnePlus 5T before February 9, we will ship your device with priority shipping in available regions for free.


    We look forward to seeing your reactions to our latest variant of the OnePlus 5T. Be sure to share your thoughts, photos, and impressions with us in the comments below.

    Never Settle.

    Glad to finally see the red option for an Oneplus device. After all its your color, so that should have existed since start. :p Now I hope that for the op6 we will have a special red sandstone version right from the start. ;)

    @dsmonteiro @Hige Now you can finally have your Oneplus Benfica* edition. :p

    Here is also the Valentine ad about it. I must say that it was better than the last two. :sweatsmile: At least this one has Emily. :p

    *Ok, not quite the exact same color, but close enough. :sweatsmile:

    Hey @Carl Here it is. :)

    I like the color and I think it’s a good option, even if it isn’t for me - I’m a Midnight Black guy. However, it’s nice to see OnePlus providing options to the customers who don’t like black or know anyone who doesn’t - wink, wink, Valentine’s Day.

    If it is anything like the White Sandstone, it will probably be sold out in a matter of days - I believe it is sold out in India at the moment. Hopefully, anyone who wants one, gets the chance to order it.

    As I mentioned before, this is how you do a red version - always go for black on the front, much more beautiful than white and red ;)

    And for the users who are going to complain about OnePlus giving only one color option at launch and then providing options, I can understand your frustration, however, have in mind that “announcing” the Lava Red, the White Sandstone, keeps the product “fresh”, meaning that it keeps the 5T in the press, etc.

    Now, for the next OnePlus, there’s only one variant to go: make it a special edition transparent with the a red battery. You know you want it. :p

    Hmmm, what?

    Also, here are a few unboxings, if people want to see a little bit more.

    Is it? or just getting more market share repainting the same phone over and over again?

    aka "Star Wars Last Jedi Limited Edition, minus Star Wars branding"

    aka "Chinese 4th Anniversary Edition"

    Yep, called it months ago, it was a given, no surprises here. What's next Year of The Dog Luna Limited Edition.

    Within a short time frame we have seen
    • OP5T Midnight Black
    • OP5T Star Wars White Sandstone Limited Edition
    • OP5T White Sandstone Limited Edition
    • OP5T Lava Red Limited Edition
    What's next? before the OP6 is due? Soft Gold perhaps?
