Limited edition Sandstone White OnePlus 5T announced

Ever since the OnePlus 5T launched in just a single shade - midnight black - we've been expecting more colors to come out of the Chinese firm. Now, the company is introducing a new option - Sandstone White.

Color aside, the new model bring back the grippy sandstone texture so many people liked about the company's first devices a few years ago.

You won't be able to get the cheaper 6GB/64GB configuration in white though, with the black OnePlus 5T your only option if you're looking to save a little bit of money. Second, a white masking layer was coated onto the body to ensure a white opacity.

Curiously, OnePlus seems to be drawing inspiration from the Pixel 2 XL "panda" look, as this newest 5T model has a similar white back with black front approach and one button in a contrasty red color.

Elsewhere, changes are minimal. Of course, it comes with dual rear-facing cameras, face unlock, a 6-inch display, and all of the same features the black OnePlus 5T boasts.

In our review we said, "At this price, it's tough to beat", and that's still true today.

It will cost £499 in the United Kingdom, €559 in the rest of Europe, and $559 in the USA when it goes on sale January 9 at 10AM ET. Upon further digging, the new variant will only be made available in 8GB RAM+128GB ROM.

As we mentioned, this new colourway is available in limited quantities, and will only be available while supplies last.
