The Sandstone White color is actually a nod to OnePlus’ first ever smartphone release, the OnePlus One, which was launched back in April of 2014. For more recent fans of the mobile brand, the new color option should be a welcome addition, considering that the the OnePlus 5T, after all, was previously only made available in one color option -- Midnight Black.
As for those science fiction fans who were enamored with the special Star Wars: The Last Jedi edition of the OnePlus 5T that was announced by the company exactly a month ago, some of them might notice that the Sandstone White Limited Edition OnePlus 5T is basically that same device. The only difference is that it does not come with the cool Star Wars design.
Also, it bears mentioning that for the new Sandstone White variant of the OnePlus 5T, the company has decided to keep the black color for the front side, while having the white color contained in the sides as well as the entire rear cover. With the addition of a red alert slider, the overall color combination makes for a simple yet elegantly contrasting aesthetic. For good measure, the latest edition resurrects the rough Sandstone texture on the back, which is reminiscent of the original OnePlus One’s feel, marking a departure from the smooth rear texture found on the Midnight Black version of the device.
Colors aside, the Sandstone White version of the OnePlus 5T retains all of the regular model’s features and specs. There is a bonus though -- OnePlus is now beginning to deploy Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo mobile operating system to the model, which should mean users will soon be able to move on from Android Nougat. For those who just can not wait, they might want to install the OxygenOS beta that the phone maker has started rolling out just a few days ago. This beta comes with features like picture in picture viewing and auto fill text, as well as enhancements and tweaks (an option for uploading pictures to Shot on OnePlus, unification of icon options and app shortcuts).
