It is worthy to note that the new colour variant is only available for the 8GB/128GB variant of the OnePlus 5T. To recall, the OnePlus 5T smartphone was initially launched in the month of November.
As we mentioned, the OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition has been launched in India. OnePlus explains how it has used two anodic oxidation processes in order to offer the required texture and feel. Rest of the specifications of the new variant of the phone remains same which include a 6.01-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. OnePlus is only making it available in a 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM variant, so anyone hoping for a cheaper 64GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM version will be disappointed. On the front is another 16-megapixel sensor.
OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with company's OxygenOS on top; it will soon be getting Android 8.0 Oreo update. Not that the original OnePlus 5T has been around for a very long time, but, the company's strategy to launch a new colour variant - although it offers more options - out of the blue does tend to confuse buyers somewhat. The highlight of the handset is the integration of dash charging technology, which enables you to quickly charge the device without causing any abnormal heat. The phone sports a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor on the back, with f/1.7 aperture, while a 16-megapixel camera is there on the front. The OnePlus 5T will come with a dual-nano SIM slot too.
