While the bulk of the excitement around the OnePlus 5T is buzzing around the Star Wars edition that was announced earlier this month right on time for the new Star Wars movie, a new special white variant of the phone has surfaced and provides a viable alternative for OnePlus fans looking for something other than the stately black version of the phone.
At this time, the OnePlus 5T is available in the usual Midnight Black and in the new Lava Red color that was launched earlier this month. A special Star Wars edition is also available in India, and while exclusive, it may eventually reach other parts of the world once copyright issues have been sorted out. The new white version was spotted in leaked pictures, and while not yet officially available, the leaks do tells us that it's coming.
It looks similar to the Star Wars edition, which has a white rear plate. Although it won't have the Star Wars branding on the back, it also has one big difference, a white faceplate (compared to the black one used on the Star Wars edition and the Midnight Black version). The all-white attire of this newest variant will be a welcome sight for fans of chic, bright white smartphones.
The phone will likely otherwise be identical to other OnePlus 5T variants, which means it'll have a 6-inch AMOLED display with 18:9 full HD+ 2160 x 1080 resolution, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The dual-camera setup on the rear has a 20-megapixel lens coupled with a 16-megapixel, both at f/1.7 aperture. The front-facing selfie camera is 16-megapixels. The battery is Dash Charge compliant and has a 3,300mAh capacity.
No word yet on when this particular flavor of the OnePlus 5T will be out, but given that a complete phone has been photographed in the wilds, it likely won't be long before this color is out on the market.
