Last month, OnePlus in India launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition smartphone at a special movie screening event in Mumbai. Today (on Thursday) the Chinese company has brought the ‘Lava Red’ special edition to India, which it first introduced in China back in November.

The OnePlus 5T Lava Red Special Edition gets bright red finish on the back, but the front bezels remain black. Other than that, there is nothing different in terms of specifications.

OnePlus recently launched the 5T Sandstone White Limited Edition for global markets as well.

“We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition. This phenomenal excitement reinforces the trust that our fans have instilled in us, making us determined to continue to bring fresh experiences. We are happy to kickstart 2018 with the much requested OnePlus 5T Lava Red edition, our first ever red smartphone, that will certainly appeal to those looking for the perfect balance of beautiful design and powerful features,” Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India, said in a statement.
