Update (Jan 20): The Lava Red OnePlus 5T is now available in India.
Update (Jan 11): As expected, OnePlus India today launched the Lava Red OnePlus 5T in the country. It will be available in the 8GB RAM version at INR 37,999. The sales start January 20 at Amazon India.
Earlier (Jan 9): It seems India will be the second market after China to get the new Lava Red OnePlus 5T. According to the teasers posted on social media by the company, it will launch the Red OnePlus 5T on January 11 in the country.
It will be the second colour option after the Midnight Black to be available in the Indian market. The Star Wars limited edition OnePlus 5T was also released in India, but the Sandstone White (which is essentially the Star Wars edition without the Star Wars logo) didn’t make it to the country.
Like the Chinese market, the Lava Red OnePlus 5T is expected to be available in only the 8GB RAM version in India. The pricing of the Red 5T is expected to be same as the Midnight Black version, which is available for INR 37,999 (8GB).
