OnePlus is all set to launch the special edition of their flagship model, the OnePlus 5, on September 19 and it’s creating a buzz in the social media as expected. The special edition OnePlus 5 has been designed in partnership with famous French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
To the slight disappointment of followers, the company is not going to introduce any new variant. More so because they had released the OnePlus 5 just three months ago.
Of course, the Chinese company will not risk the retail value of their flagship smartphone so early.
The invite sent around by OnePlus doesn’t give us any idea about what to expect from the special edition. So far, all that we can speculate is that the OnePlus 5 Special Edition will get a revamp from one of the most celebrated artists in Paris, where the launch event is going to take place.
The new edition may come along with new color options and the designer logo on its back. This is a collaborative move on the part of OnePlus to uphold their design value and boost the style quotient of their flagship model, the OnePlus 5.
The invite itself says, “When the style meets its machine, one night in September in Paris …” This hints at the company’s focus towards re-establishing their USP as the manufacturer of well-designed smartphones.
When the style meets its machine, one night in September in Paris …
If you walk down the memory lane, you’ll remember that OnePlus had done the same thing in March when it joined hands with the Paris-based fashion boutique, Collete, and announced the limited edition OnePlus 3T.
The OnePlus 3T sported a sleek black look and the Collete logo on its back – the same thing may happen to the OnePlus 5.
Hard to Get
It is also being speculated that the special edition OnePlus 5 will have a limited number of units as was the case with the limited edition OnePlus 3T. In March, we saw only 250 units of the OnePlus 3T being rolled out for the public. We can expect something along the same lines with the OnePlus 5, making it hard for customers to get their hands on one.
However, OnePlus still hasn’t announced how many units it will release next week. But we hope the number is higher than what it was for the limited edition OnePlus 3T.
