OnePlus 5T Lava Red Edition launched in India: Specs, price and more

OnePlus has launched the Lava Red Edition of its flagship device, the OnePlus 5T in India. OnePlus had launched this variant in China back in November. The Lava Red Special Edition has the same black finish on the front just like the Midnight Black edition. The back panel and the sides of the smartphone have the special edition Lava Red finish.

OnePlus said during the launch of the new Lava Red edition of OnePlus 5T, “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 accurate combination of temperature, consistency and baking time with less than 0.01% variation.”
