It subjected the phone to "two sandblasting techniques before adding an anti-fingerprint layer to create a pristine finish", OnePlus said, adding that its "attention to detail is reflected clearly in the OnePlus 5T Lava Red's matching red ceramic fingerprint sensor". Even the fingerprint scanner is covered with red color to make the phone look more appealing.

The Lava Red OnePlus 5T will sell for €559 in Europe, £499 in the United Kingdom, and $559 in the US. However, the company later launched the Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T in China later same month, and last month, the OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant was launched in India as well.

However, the front of the phone is black in color and is covered with Gorilla Glass for protection against scratches. This device is the larger of two RAM and internal storage capacities with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.


This particular variant of the OnePlus 5T will be available to order starting on February 6th. The metal casing and metal buttons are all one of two shades of red.

It is easy to see that OnePlus has planned the global release in time for Valentine's Day. "Our overall vision was one of restraint and radiance, resulting in a truly stunning device". The 5T remains a favorite among many hardcore Android fans despite various privacy issues for which OnePlus has come under fire over the past years. The only one with a different color is the OnePlus logo at the back which is still black. In a press release, OnePlus flaunted its design skills, saying the Lava Red edition underwent an "extensive process" that included being anodised.

Availability: Available through OnePlus.net from February 6 at 10 am ET/CET/GMT/HKT/EET onwards.
