Looks like OnePlus is going with the same strategy it did with its OnePlus 3T smartphone. Where the company launched a special edition of OnePlus 3T in collaboration with Colette back in March. While the smartphone was only available in limited quantities with only 250 units being made.
OnePlus is expected to do the same with its recently launched OnePlus 5 smartphone. But this time around OnePlus is teaming up with a French designer named Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. While the event will be held in Paris on 19th of September. Aside from that no other details were given regarding what to expect from the special edition OnePlus 5. An invitation was also forwarded by OnePlus saying “When the style meets its machine, one night in September in Paris’’.
In terms of specs the OnePlus 5 is equipped with a 5.5 inch display. That supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080. There is also a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 running under the hood. With either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Aside from that users can also get up to 128GB of non-expandable storage. Though the 6GB RAM variant is only available with 64GB of storage. While the 8GB RAM variant comes equipped with 128GB of storage.
The new OnePlus 5 is also the first smartphone from the company, to sport a dual camera setup. Which combines together a 16+20 MP sensor. Allowing users to take the best pictures in any lightning condition. Aside from that the camera on the OnePlus 5 also sports 2X optical zoom, ensuring your pictures don’t lose quality even while zoomed in. While at the front of the smartphone a 16 MP selfie shooter. Where to power it all a 3300mAh battery is present.
This new special edition of OnePlus 5 will also be available in limited quantities with an expensive price tag. Though OnePlus might launch it later on as well but then it won’t have the signature limited marking on the back of the phone just like the Colette edition.
