OnePlus will be launching a new colour variant of the OnePlus 5T in China tomorrow. The Chinese company already confirmed that the new variant would feature Sandstone back, like the OnePlus One and OnePlus Two smartphones. Chinese retailer JD.com accidentally listed the upcoming Sandstone OnePlus 5T, and guess what, OnePlus is launching the Sandstone White variant of the OnePlus 5T in its homeland, and not the Sandstone Black variant as it was rumoured earlier.
For the unaware, OnePlus recently launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition in India and other few countries with Sandstone White back. The retailer also posted an image of the upcoming Sandstone OnePlus 5T, and it’ similar to the Star Edition, sans the Star Wars logo at the bottom. Also, the standard Sandstone White variant doesn’t have a Red colour alert slider. So, the Sandstone White variant in China comes with just a white coloured back.
The retailer also listed the specifications for the upcoming variant of OnePlus 5T. Like the Star Wars Edition, the Sandstone White variant will also be launched in a single 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. Sadly, the listing did not reveal the pricing of the smartphone. As of this writing, JD.com removed the listing too.
OnePlus did the same thing in the past too. Last year, it launched a OnePlus 3T Colette edition in Paris which featured stunning Black hue. Bue later on, the company launched the same Colette edition in other countries as OnePlus 3T Midnight Black edition with more availability.
And the same continues this year too. We’re not expecting OnePlus to launch the regular Sandstone colour variant in India. The company may launch them in countries such as the US, UK, etc., where it did not launch the Star Wars Edition.
OnePlus will reveal the pricing and availability of the new Sandstone White variant tomorrow at the launch event in China. The phone may be priced a tad higher than the standard OnePlus 5T which is currently retailing for $529 and Rs 37,999 in India.
