  • OnePlus 5T gets a cool new sandstone white look

OnePlus hasn't said just how many are available, but notes the sandstone white variant is only available "while supplies last".

The new model features a stark black logo and buttons to match, which contrast very well with the matte white chassis. Now we know why: OnePlus was already planning on bringing a white model to the rest of the world, sans Star Wars branding.

OnePlus is today launching a new color for the 5T smartphone, called Sandstone White. A striking red alert-slider is the finishing touch, using aluminum alloy polishing and an anode technology to achieve the red color. First, we apply a primer to safeguard the metal body.

Every once in awhile, companies release new colors of existing phones to jumpstart sales a few months after launch.

This limited edition is more than just a colourway, as it also adds OnePlus' grippy Sandstone texture, which makes the device much more secure in the hand. This second layer helps ensure the white colouring is truly opaque, completely covering the metal material.

Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots add up to one billion dollars
Tomorrow night's Powerball drawing has soared to $570 million making it the 5th largest Powerball jackpot ever. At nearly $1 billion combined, many across the USA are taking a chance this weekend on lottery tickets.

The device combines the Sandstone texture, which has become synonymous with OnePlus, and the crisp, bright white hue reminiscent of the OnePlus One Silk White.

OnePlus's website misleadingly suggests the Sandstone White OnePlus 5T's price is $499, but a OnePlus spokesperson confirmed that it's $559 (the MSRP listed in the press release).

It takes a total of 75 minutes per phone, making the body of the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White the most expensive we have ever produced.

The Sandstone White OnePlus 5T price is the same as the black version, at $599 (£499), ensuring it keeps its affordable flagship price tag and goes on sale on January 9 at 10am GMT in the United Kingdom and 10am ET in the US.
