In its forum post announcement, OnePlus explains that it has been working on an all-black OnePlus smartphone for “close to a year now.” It reveals that it experimented with over 30 variations on the theme, but was not able to get “premium deep black coat” it was aiming to deliver.
“This limited edition of the OnePlus 3T is hewed out of the same space-grade aluminium that lent the original OnePlus 3 and 3T devices their class and durability. A dark coating of just 14 microns in thickness is meticulously applied to the surface of the phone, imbuing the device with a stunning black colour built to last, while retaining the look and feel of naked metal,” the company said on its blog post.
On its India site, the company warns users that despite it being “confident” it had created a “superior coating process” for the OnePlus 3T Midnight Black Limited Edition, there are still chances of micro-abrasions that may result from “regular use without a protective case.”
The OnePlus 3T was launched back in November last year, and was a minor upgrade over the OnePlus 3. The only differences between the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 are a faster SoC, increased storage, an improved front camera, and a larger battery.
