The Lava Red OnePlus 5T debuted for the first time in November of last year. To the displeasure of many fans, it turned out to be exclusively for the Chinese market, but that will soon cease to be so. This especially bright OnePlus 5T is heading to India, and enthusiasts will be able to purchase one as of January 20.

OnePlus brought the Lava Red color of 5T to CES to show off, and we got some hands-a weather. Details were not disclosed at the time, but we have them now. I'll let OnePlus dig deeper into the details about the color and manufacturing process:
Inspired by the dynamic nature of lava with colors that change under different types of light, the Lava Red radiant tone is achieved by a precise combination of temperature , consistency and cooking time with less than 0.01% variation. In addition, it uses two processes of anodic oxidation, using double blasting and an AF coating to guarantee texture and feel. A completely redesigned screen background exclusive to this edition further enhances the user experience.
Apart from the wallpaper, it is clear that OnePlus worked hard to give the phone a red glow. In David's photo above, it certainly appears.
The Lava Red OnePlus 5T will be available exclusively on Amazon India in the 8GB / 128GB configuration at a price of Rs 37,999 ($ 595.82 USD). That's exactly the same price as the Midnight Black 8GB / 128GB version, in case you ask. You can register to receive a notification now, but sales will begin on January 20 at 12:00 IST.
