OnePlus 5T-Sandstone-White

It’s been a while since OnePlus released its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5T back in November. And there are quite a bit of color options available now. Last month, they released the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition in India which was very successful, in terms of looks and also in terms of sales.

Now, OnePlus is back with Limited Edition Sandstone White OnePlus 5T which is basically the same as the ‘Star Wars Edition’, but without the Star Wars logo on the back. This device brings back memories of those days when OnePlus came out with the OnePlus One which had the sandstone material and was one of the first devices to come with it.

Sandstone White Limited Edition OnePlus 5T

Hardware & Specifications

The specs of the device are pretty much identical to its brothers. Here they are:

  • Snapdragon 835
  • 6-inch 1080p OLED panel with 18:9 aspect ratio
  • 128 GB of Storage
  • 8 GB of RAM
  • 16+20mp dual rear camera
  • 3300mAh battery with Dash Charging
  • Android Nougat 7.1.1 (Oreo arriving in a month or two)

Describing the hardware, the rear of the device has a white sandstone finish with the fingerprint sensor and a black ‘OnePlus’ logo. The keys and the sim tray are all black except the Alert Slider. OnePlus decided to keep the red Alert Slider, which was originally introduced with Star Wars edition.

And it looks damn cool in my opinion.

I hope 2018 is the year in which OEMs decide to keep these colored keys.

Overall, it’s a great device from OnePlus. It might attract dust particles as it is white and might get dirty sooner than you expected. But, the sandstone finish and the red Alert Slider are enough, in my opinion, to ignore the one disadvantage it has.

Pricing and Availability

This limited edition device will be available to buy on the OnePlus Store on January 9th, at 10:00 AM ET. Coming to the price, it is listed at $559, which is same as the higher black 5T model consisting the same specs.
