OnePlus has turned its attention to the Indian smartphone market in recent years. In 2017, for example, OnePlus India was the only Asian country where OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition. Building on that momentum, OnePlus this week brought OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition to India.
The Lava Red OnePlus 5T edition packs the same specifications as the original OnePlus 5T, which include a 6-inch AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a dual camera system, and custom wallpapers. OnePlus claims that the Lava Red’s unique color is achieved through a combination of high temperatures, long baking times, two “anodic oxidation” processes, “double blasting,” and “AF coating” — there’s less than 0.01% variation between units.
Pre-registration for the OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition begins on January 11 at Amazon India ahead of a January 20 launch date. It starts at Rs 37,999 ($595.82), which is the same price as the Midnight Black 8/GB/128GB version in the country.
OnePlus has launched the Lava Red edition of the OnePlus 5T at Rs 37,999. The device will go on sale on January 20 at 12 pm. Currently, it is listed on OnePlus’ official store and will also be available on Amazon India’s website.
On the date of the launch of the OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition, Samsung will also start selling its Galaxy A8+ in India. The device will be a direct rival of the OnePlus 5T and comes with a few features that are usually found on Samsung’s flagships. However, in terms of specifications the OnePlus 5T is the true ‘flagship killer’.
This will be the fourth variant of the device after the midnight black, sandstone white and the special Star Wars edition that was launched last month. The device will only be available in the 8GB variant for now. The registration for the sale of the device has already begun.
This is the first time OnePlus has launched a Red colored phone. The new variant was available in a few markets outside India and has been requested extensively.
According to OnePlus the new variant undergoes a two anodic oxidation process, double blasting and AF coating which gives it a certain texture. The device also gets a special wallpaper to match the Red theme of the device.
Other than the aesthetic differences, the device is identical to the 8GB variant of the midnight black version. Here are the highlights of the device:
The 6-inch optic AMOLED display leaves out narrow bezels on all four sides of the device. The increased screen size amounts to an 80.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. The company has placed all the sensors and the 16Megapixel camera above the display. For protection, OnePlus has used Gorilla Glass 5.
The OnePlus 5T will be the first device for the company to feature an immersive display with a resolution of 18:9. The screen has been equipped with Sunlight Display which adjusts to the ambient light and activity to create optimum viewing experience.
Processor and performance
OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 internals are identical as far as processing power is concerned. The device is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at 2.45GHz coupled with Adreno 540 GPU.
The OnePlus 5T camera has been touted as a low-light expert and that might be true considering that the primary camera comes with the aperture of F/1.7. Within the dual-camera setup, the device houses one 20Megapixel sensor and another 16Megapixel module.
Another aspect that the company has improved with the dual camera on OnePlus 5T is portrait photography. The OnePlus 5T also comes with refined Electronic Image Stability (EIS) for better video and image stabilization.
With the 5T, OnePlus is bringing Face Unlock feature, which the company claims can unlock the device in 0.4 seconds flat. The feature detects eyes and nose contours of the user and delivers 99 percent success rate even with scarves or while making funny faces. The Face Unlock, however, can’t be used with apps dealing with sensitive information payment details, for the sake of data security.
For connectivity, it will have a USB 2.0 Type-C jack and a 3.5mm audio jack. The OnePlus 5T will come with a dual-nano SIM slot too. It also comes with an easily accessible Alert Slider which can be used even when the phone inside a pocket to toggle between three notification settings – Ring, Do Not Disturb and Silent.
