After releasing a video on its YouTube page, which teases the upcoming Sandstone Edition of its flagship smartphone OnePlus 5T, the China-based OnePlus has now again teased the device by releasing a new video on Twitter.
The video released on its Twitter account shows comments from various OnePlus phone owners praising sandstone back panel, which the company used to offer on the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2.
Some users claim that the sandstone finish is the reason they opted to buy the OnePlus phone, while others claim that it is the best experience for anyone with butterfingers. However, the teaser video has not revealed any details regarding the launch or announcement of this variant.
Recently, the company posted a photo on its official OnePlus Weibo account, announcing a launch event on Friday, 5th of January. The poster suggests that the company will release the Sandstone White version of the OnePlus 5T. The company has been promoting the launch with phrases like ‘three days left’, ‘the Classic returns’ mentioned on it.
The OnePlus 5T was originally launched in November last year. The phone features a 6.01-inch Full-HD+ Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 pixels screen resolution. It comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 6GB/ 8GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB of internal storage. The phone sports a dual rear camera setup at the back, packing a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. There is also a 16-megapixel front sensor for taking selfies and video calling.
We believe that the new Sandstone Edition of the OnePlus 5T will initially be available in China only. The Sandstone White Edition of the phone has already been listed on Chinese online retailer JD.com for 3,499 Yuan, which roughly converts to $539.
OnePlus has been offering a new variant of its flagship smartphone at regular intervals. Recently, OnePlus introduced a special Star Wars Limited Edition variant of the OnePlus 5T. Prior to that, it launched a Lava Red colour variant in its home country, which is now reported to get launched in India later this month.
