Another limited edition OnePlus phone to drool over.

When OnePlus announced the Star Wars Limited Edition version of the OnePlus 5T, it was inevitable that it’d parlay the intrigue in this new model to a more widely available version without the movie branding. So here we are, with the “Sandstone White” OnePlus 5T — that’s significant because it’s white, dramatically different from the “Midnight Black” launch color, but also because it reintroduces the “Sandstone” moniker that was  [Read More…]
