With all these ‘new something-something edition’ launches dropping in every other month, one thing’s for sure – it’s a good idea to wait a few months before pulling the trigger on a OnePlus smartphone. There’s a good chance a sexier version is right around the corner. Unless they give it to you in writing that they’ve run out of paint, anyway. There’s no denying that the 5T one of the best smartphones around, though, and this new Lava Red Edition is more compelling than ever. The innards remain the same as the Midnight Black, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage model, but it’s all about the design, which requires two sandblasting techniques to get right. The red 5T will go on sale at 10am on February 6, and you can pick one up for £499.
