The new sandstone white version of the OnePlus 5T brings not only a new colour, but a smooth matte finish to the phone. 

This "limited edition" variant (we don't know how many units it's limited to) will hit the OnePlus online store globally on Jan. 9 and will cost £499 in the UK and $559 in the US.

It runs Android Nougat, rather than the more recent Oreo. Disappointing.
