OnePlus 5T in Lava Red goes global for Valentine’s Day

OnePlus just announced that its red-colored OnePlus 5T will be sold in North America and Europe beginning this week.

The new color, officially known as Lava Red, was initially available in China and India late last year. OnePlus would now like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by bringing it to additional markets. And helping to promote the OnePlus 5T in Lava Red is supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, who sits down for a Valentine’s Day dinner with a rather clumsy man. Her significant other gifts her a handmade teddy bear, but Ratajkowski knows there’s no better gift than the OnePlus 5T.

It’s a short ad, and at the end the supermodel says “Who wouldn’t want the best smartphone of the year?” followed by quotes from media members who have all praised OnePlus’ latest flagship.

Pricing won’t be different from what’s already in place. The OnePlus 5T in Lava Red, however, is only sold with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. So you’ll have to spend $559 since the base model continues to be limited to just Midnight Black.

If you already own the OnePlus 5T or just want to pick up some accessories, a bunch of bundles are on sale. Bundles with earbuds, backpacks, and cases have all been discounted.

OnePlus says the Lava Red model can be purchased on February 6 at 10:00aM ET. Anyone who decides to pick up the phone before February 9 will also get free priority shipping. Don’t wait long, though. Once it’s out of stock, OnePlus won’t be bringing the red-colored OnePlus 5T back.

Now the focus will shift to the OnePlus 6, the 2018 flagship launching by the end of the second quarter.
