OnePlus is expected to launch a new Sandstone White option for the OnePlus 5T on January 5 in China and Lava Red variant in India on January 26. Now ahead of the launch, the OnePlus 5T new variant has been found listed on Chinese retailer, JD.com, via Ithome.
OnePlus recently teased a video with a message “What’s in the Box?” that showed a product inside a box. The video came with the tagline “Unbox the mystery. January 2018”. Later an official launch poster of OnePlus 5T Sandstone was released a few days ago.
The OnePlus 5T was launched in India in Midnight Black colour. Later on, the company launched a limited Star Wars Edition device in India which is white in colour. Now as per the retailer listing, unlike the Midnight Black colour variant of the 5T, the Sandstone colour variant only comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.
The OnePlus 5T new variant comes listed with the same price of 3499 Yuan (approx. Rs 35,000) as the Lava Red variant and Midnight Black variant of the same configuration in China.
As far as specs go, the OnePlus 5T comes with a 6.01-inch full Optic AMOLED display that has 2160×1080 pixels display, thus offering 401 ppi pixel density and has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The 162 grams weighing phone is just 7.3 mm thin and comes in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants. Made of Anodized Aluminium, the OnePlus 5T comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat based OxygenOS. Underneath the beautiful body lies the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and Adreno 540 GPU.
It has 3300 mAh battery and comes with the Dash Charger. As expected, the phone has the audio jack. Besides, it has USB Type C port, dual nano-SIM slot, fingerprint sensor, Accelerometer, G-sensor, Electronic Compass, Gyroscope, Proximity, Ambient Light Sensor, RGB and Sensor Hub. There are on-screen navigational support, power button, volume rocker and Alert Slider in the OnePlus 5T.
