OnePlus 5T lands in China, but with an extra Lava Red color option

In addition to Midnight Black, the OnePlus 5T will also be available in a new Lava Red color option in China. The Lava Red color model of the OnePlus 5T has been spotted on OnePlus's Chinese website with a CNY 2,999 (around INR 29,300) price tag, same as that of the Midnight Black color variant. The new color variant is still to be listed on the purchasing page, however.

The OnePlus 5T, the mid-cycle upgrade over the OnePlus 5, broke cover on November 21 and a couple of days later it went on sale in India. And now the device has seen the light in China as well. However, it seems it has been treated with an extra Lava Red color option.

It is important to note that the OnePlus 5T was launched in India and elsewhere only in Midnight Black color option. Along with the regular Midnight Black, the OnePlus 5T in Lava Red in China will now spice up the lineup.

Nevertheless, the Lave Red color variant is still to be listed on the purchasing page. So far, the device is on OnePlus' Chinese website with a price tag of CNY 2,999 (around INR 29,300), same as the price of the Midnight Black variant.

The new color variant carries over the same specs of the Midnight Black version of the OnePlus 5T. It features a 6.01-inch full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, making it the first bezel-less smartphone from OnePlus. Pumping power from under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC mated to 6 GB/8 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB internal storage.

It mounts a 16 MP+20 MP camera combo on the back and a 16 MP single camera on the front for selfie buffs. Android 7.1.1 Nougat based on OxygenOS handles the software department while a 3,300 mAh battery supplies fuel to the device.

With resplendent Lava Red color variant, the OnePlus 5T might be more tempting for the buyers to ignore. In the past, OnePlus has already tried a Red color option with its OnePlus 3. Time and again, other manufacturers have also been seen warming up to the Red color variant. Apple, earlier this year, had notably launched the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus in popular Red color options to revitalize the sales.

So far, it is not known if the Lava Red color option will also be carried forward to India and other international markets. In case anything comes up in this regard, we will update you at the earliest.
