OnePlus 5T Lava Red now available in Europe and the US

A Lava Red OnePlus 5T special edition smartphone was introduced by OnePlus this morning in celebration of Valentine's Day.

If your significant other has been itching for a new smartphone, OnePlus may have just the thing for you. Sure enough, we now have two brands that just announced this very fact: the OnePlus 5T and the much more affordable Honor 7X. The metal casing and metal buttons are all one of two shades of red. The difference is the color combo on the outside - on the sides and the back.

Lava Red 5T stocks to the same finish as the original 5T and doesn't re-create the Sandstone White's finish. The whole device is a deep warm hue, save the logo at the back, which remains black.

The phone ships out with the higher-end configuration that includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It's now chance for Europeans and Americans to get their hands on the Lava Red version of the OnePlus's flagship.

Speaking about the OnePlus 5T Lava Red variant, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei said, "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". There is, however, a Sandstone White edition version that may provide better handling and ergonomics. This case will not match the red of the phone.

Order the OnePlus 5T Lava Red before February 8th to qualify for free priority shipping and receive your device within 2-3 days.

The color, which first launched in other regions at the close of 2017, has been hotly anticipated and we now have a limited number coming to North America and Europe while supplies last. OnePlus is also throwing out a 15-per cent discount when you buy two of the same accessories.
