OnePlus is gearing up to launch a new Sandstone finish variant of its flagship OnePlus 5T smartphone on January 5. The company took to Chinese social networking site Weibo to post a teaser image for the upcoming launch event, which will be held in China. The company’s previous smartphones – OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 – were also launched in a sandstone version. Now it looks like OnePlus 5T will be the next smartphone from OnePlus to feature this finish, though colour variant is unclear at this moment.
OnePlus 5T Sandstone variant was previously leaked in a teaser video on YouTube. The video titled ‘What’s in the Box’ showcased people feeling a mysterious product inside a box. While, the video doesn’t reveal what they’re touching but some make reference to a stone. The video closes with with caption: “Unbox the mystery. January 2018.”
OnePlus 5T is currently available in Midnight Black colour variant and a Star Wars Limited Edition version. OnePlus 5T Sandstone variant follows the launch OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, which was uneveiled in India in December. The limited edition phone features the same specifications as that of OnePlus 5T, except for a few cosmetic changes.
