2017 proved to be an exceptional year for OnePlus, with both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T gaining huge popularity. As we step in 2018, the company seems to have something more in store for its fans.
On its official Weibo account, OnePlus has released a poster announcing a launch on January 5, which is on Friday. While the poster doesn't reveal the name of the product that is to be launched, it clearly points at the soon arrival of the Sandstone White variant of the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus is known for dropping hints about their smartphones ahead of the official launch.
When you take a look at the poster, the first thing you will notice is the White background which is kind of grainy like sandstone. The Chinese text at the bottom translates into "classic reproduced". If you recall, OnePlus's first flagship OnePlus One had a Sandstone Black color variant. While its successor OnePlus 2 also came with a textured back, the company decided to do away with it.
Well, it looks like, the scenario is going to change soon. The new poster a couple of days after OnePlus uploaded a video showing that it could be working on a mysterious product. The video shows random people reacting to a hidden product kept in a box with the OnePlus logo.
From the video, it can be seen that people are made to feel the texture of the product. Some have even mentioned the words like "sand" and "stone" when asked to describe the texture. The distinct texture of the back of the OnePlus and OnePlus 2 were mentioned by a few who had felt the hidden product.
So the new poster only confirms that we will indeed get to see a Sandstone White version of the OnePlus 5T. In case you are skeptical, you just have to wait for three more days to know for sure.
Presumably, OnePlus will launch the new Sandstone White OnePlus 5T in China before making it available to other markets. As far as the specifications are concerned, the new variant should come with same specs as the OnePlus 5T. However, it may cost slightly higher than the original model.
