OnePlus has announced that its limited edition OnePlus 3T Midnight Black is going to be slightly less exclusive, as the company will be selling more units of the device beyond the originally planned 250. OnePlus will be making another 250 units available through Hypebeast website24, 4PM GMT. Additional units will be available at a later date from OnePlus.net in North America and Europe. In India, the phone will be available for pre-order on Amazon on March 23 and will be available for purchase starting March 31, 2:00PM IST on Amazon and OnePlusStore.in.
Last week the company announced the Midnight Black edition as a limited edition model to celebrate the 20th anniversary of concept store Colette in Paris, where 250 units were to be made available at a pop-up store on March 21. The response was likely strong enough for OnePlus to consider selling more of these units. Or maybe that was the plan all along and the original announcement was a ruse; we will never know.
The phone is priced at USD 479 / EUR 479 / GBP 439 / INR 34,999.Other than the new colour, the limited edition 3T is exactly the same smartphone as the regular OnePlus 3T. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC with an insane 6GB of RAM, it comes with 128GB of internal storage. Its facade is taken up by a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED Full HD display. There’s a 16MP rear camera with LED flash, Optical Image Stabilization and 4K video recording functionality at the back, in addition to a 16MP front-facing snapper.
