OnePlus 3T, one of the most affordable flagship Android smartphones in the market currently, was launched in a brand-new, Midnight Black finish that really brings out the sophistication and class in it, on March 16. Now, the limited edition handset is also available for purchase online through the Hypebeast store.
The date for the online sale on Hypebeast has been announced to be March 24, at 12 p.m. ET. Again, 250 units of the Midnight Black are all that will be up for grabs on the online pop-up store, so potential buyers would have to scrap and hope for the best for when the handset goes on sale. The same Midnight Black variant was put for sale in collaboration with Collette store in Paris on March 21, but only 250 units were available for purchase.
OnePlus has made particular fuss of the black finish on the handset, claiming that more than 30 iterations of the black color were tested, after which three dark coatings were applied to “maintain the natural feel and look of the metal”. The new Midnight Black finish is available in the 128GB storage variant, and the rest of the specs are all same including 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 821, and 3,400 mAh battery that is capable of fast-charging.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has said of the Midnight Black limited edition handset that it was the product of the OnePlus team incorporating user feedback, something that it does like no other company. He said that users had been clamoring for an all-black OnePlus 3T, and the company has responded by launching the most stunning OnePlus phone to-date.
