The OnePlus 5T is now shipping out to early adopters. The phone had only minor changes over its predecessor, but so far it’s been a hit. In fact, OnePlus says it is the fastest selling smartphone it has ever produced.
The company only released the 5T in a Midnight Black color at launch, but today we’re getting an all-new color: Lava Red.
Unfortunately there’s a catch. The new color option is only available in China on the $559 variant which has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. At this time there’s no word at this time if the device will be sold outside of China, but we’re hoping OnePlus changes its mind. Perhaps you could reach out to OnePlus on Twitter if you want to make your voice heard.
The OnePlus 5T comes with a 6-inch 2160 x 1080 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. In the US, you can purchase it with either 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The battery capacity clocks in at 3,300 mAh and utilizes OnePlus’ proprietary Dash Charging for fast replenishment.
The dual-camera system has been reconfigured from the OnePlus 5. It drops the telephoto lens in favor of a second 20 MP sensor that uses groups of four pixels to perform better in low light.

We’ll keep our eye on this new red variant and let you know if OnePlus decides to launch it in any other markets.
