OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition comes to North America and Europe (Update: video)

by Abhishek BaxiFebruary 5, 2018
Update, February 5: The lava red OnePlus 5T, previously only available in India and China, is now available in Europe and North America for the same price as the regular black OnePlus 5T with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage: $559, €559 or £499. You can pick one up starting tomorrow at 10AM local time.

After the launch of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition last month to commemorate the release of the next chapter in the epic Star Wars space opera – Star Wars: The Last Jedi – OnePlus kicked off 2018 with the launch of OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition in India.

According to the company, the special edition smartphone is inspired by the dynamic nature of lava with colors that change under different types of light. The radiant Lava Red color shade is achieved through an accurate combination of temperature, consistency, and baking time with less than 0.01% variation. Additionally, it uses two anodic oxidation processes to ensure the texture and feel.

Apart from the cosmetic changes in the design, the Lava Red Edition is a OnePlus 5T at heart. It’s got the same internals as the higher spec’d OnePlus 5T (8 GB + 128 GB), and that isn’t a bad thing. The OnePlus 5T is a solid smartphone and has a well-rounded appeal for a broad audience.

Again, like the 5T, the OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with OxygenOS on top. Android Oreo out of the box would’ve been a nice highlight of the smartphone launching in 2018, but alas!
