The OnePlus 3T Midnight Black colour variant is set to go on sale in India on Friday. Available just in a 128GB storage variant, the OnePlus 3T Midnight Black price is Rs. 34,999. Notably, the colour variant is a limited edition model, and thus will only be available till stocks last.
So when exactly will the OnePlus 3T Midnight Black go on sale? It will be become available via Amazon.in, OnePlusStore.in, and the OnePlus Experience Store in Bengaluru from 2pm IST. The cell phone had gone up for pre-orders via Amazon.in on 23 March.
The new OnePlus 3T Midnight Black is the second limited edition handset to be revealed by the Chinese organization, the first being the OnePlus 3T Black Colette Limited Edition – of which just 250 units were made available around the world.
OnePlus uncovered that it had been working on an all-black smartphone for “close to a year”. It said that it experimented with more than 30 variations on the theme, but was not able to get “premium deep black coat” it was aiming to deliver.
“This restricted version of the OnePlus 3T is cut out of the same space-grade aluminum that lent the original OnePlus 3 and 3T gadgets their class and durability. A dark coating of just 14 microns in thickness is meticulously applied to the surface of the phone, imbuing the gadget with a stunning black colour built to last, while retaining the look and feel of naked metal,” the organization said.
On its India site, the organization warns clients that despite it being “confident” it had made a “superior coating process” for the OnePlus 3T Midnight Black Limited Edition, there are still chances of micro-abrasions that may result from “regular use without a protective case.”
The OnePlus 3T (Review) was launched back in November a year ago, and was a minor update over the OnePlus 3. The only differences between the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 are a faster SoC, increased storage, an improved front camera, and a bigger battery. The OnePlus 3T sports a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC compared to the Snapdragon 820 SoC on the original.
