The OnePlus 5 special edition has been given some aesthetic touches by French designer Jean Charles De Castelbajac.

If your existing OnePlus 5 isn't quite fancy enough, you may want to cast your eyes over this special-edition designer version.

Dubbed the "Callection" edition, it's made in partnership with French designer Jean Charles De Castelbajac, who's added colourful flair to the phone. 

It features artistic script on the back, the phones buttons are different colours and there are some funky wallpapers to choose from. 

The special edition handset is available online now at OnePlus's European online store for £499, with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. That's the same price as the non-designer version.

It's available across Europe, although OnePlus hasn't said yet whether this fancy model will make it to the US or Australia.

The script is subtle, but it catches nicely in the right light.

"This is not a mobile phone, it is a creative machine for artists, fashion expert, ideas catcher. This tool is kool you can use it also as a telephone. One + JCDe Castelbajac Callection," it reads. 

Lovely stuff.

The customisable toggle switch is bright yellow, while the volume rocker is red.

On the other side is the bright blue power button.

The colours jazz things up a little.

The dual camera unit remains the same.

It's very French.

The artworks are also included in this fold-out card set you'll find in the phone packaging.

The red text here is similar to what you'll also find printed on the back of the phone. It's easier to read here, though the grammar is still a bit off.

It still charges with USB-C.
