OnePlus 5T's Lava Red variant is going on sale for the first time in India on Saturday. The colour variant will go on sale on Amazon.in starting at 12pm IST, as well as on the OnePlus Store. It will also be made available the same day via select Croma stores, as well as the OnePlus experience zones in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Delhi NCR.
The phone is priced at Rs. 37,999 - the same price as the regular 8GB RAM variant of the smartphone. The smartphone was originally launched in China in November last year. The Lava Red variant comes in only an 8GB RAM, 128GB storage configuration. It will sit alongside two other OnePlus 5T variants, Midnight Black and Star Wars edition.
Apart from a new colour scheme, the new edition retains the same features and specifications as the original Midnight Black variant launched in November 2017. For the Lava Red variant, OnePlus has used two anodic oxidation processes, double blasting and AF coating, to maintain the texture. It also gets a redesigned wallpaper, unique to this variant.
"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. We are happy to kickstart 2018 with the much requested OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition, our first ever red smartphone, that will certainly appeal to those looking for the perfect balance of beautiful design and powerful features." said Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India.
