Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is set to introduce a new, limited edition version of its 5T model in Paris Codenamed Sandstone White, the smartphone will have its world premiere during the Nous store opening in Paris on the 8th January and will launch internet sales the day after.

Coming with a price tag of $559, this is the first time a OnePlus smartphone with a metal chassis comes with a sandstone feel according to OnePlus co-founder, Carl Pei.

Featuring the same specifications as the original OnePlus 5T other than some design changes, the limited edition smartphone will come in one configuration with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

Running on Google's Android platform, the OnePlus 5T comes with a set of interesting features including Face Unlock, which lets its owner access the device simply by looking at it, similarly to the iPhone X.

A 16MP camera on the back is enhanced with an additional 20MP sensor to allow the phone to shoot videos in 4K resolutions. 

"A brilliant marriage of nostalgia and expert craftsmanship, the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White unites the iconic sensation of OnePlus Sandstone with a sleek all-aluminum shell." explains Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus. "Slowly perfected using over 100 prototypes, this is the first time we managed to apply our classic Sandstone feel to a metal chassis. It takes 4 layers to create a body with a comfortable grip and a natural, minimalistic appearance"

The worldwide launch of the Sandstone OnePlus 5T comes in hand with the opening of Nous, a new Parisian concept store launched by former Colette executives less than 3 weeks after the closure of the iconic, trendsetting store.
