Carl, Jan 3, 2018 : Hey everyone, Whenever we talk about materials and design, it never takes our fans long to bring up Sandstone. Since we first introduced Sandstone on the OnePlus One, it has become an iconic part of our identity. Whether it be through a Styleswap cover or a premium case, each of our devices has been graced by our most iconic material. The moment we made the leap to an all-aluminum chassis on the OnePlus 3, we started experimenting with blending Sandstone with metal. It’s been almost two years since then, but we’ve finally hit upon a device that matches our standards of design. We’re proud to introduce: The OnePlus 5T Sandstone White. A brilliant marriage of nostalgia and expert craftsmanship, the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White unites the iconic sensation of OnePlus Sandstone with a sleek all-aluminum shell. Slowly perfected using over 100 prototypes, this is the first time we managed to apply our classic Sandstone feel to a metal chassis. It takes 4 layers to create a body with a comfortable grip and a natural, minimalistic appearance. This limited-edition device undergoes four increasingly complex processes before it’s ready to hit the market, each of which was designed to ensure both a visually stunning sense of style and an incredible feel. 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. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. Over the years, we have created a lot of history together. Sandstone is an incredibly important part of that history. Over the years, we have received more than a few cries for a true Sandstone device. With the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White we are casting a bold new light on a beloved classic. We can’t wait to get it into your hands. Thank you for 4 years of support! You’ll be able to get your hands on the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White starting on January 9, at 10AM ET/ 10AM CET/ 10AM GMT. The OnePlus 5T Sandstone White is the most complex device we have ever built. Owing to its labor and time-intensive development, the OnePlus 5T will be available in extremely limited quantities. So, don’t miss out on this Limited Edition version of the latest OnePlus flagship. Never Settle.
