OnePlus announced that they would be bringing a surprise to masses on 15th March and that they had partnered with Colette on the same. While it was rumoured that OnePlus might launch a limited edition Blue OnePlus 3T phone, fans were leaning more towards accessories or some lifestyle gadget.. However, OnePlus has indeed launched a special limited edition phone. No, it is not a “Blue” phone as the initial twitter teaser led people to believe but rather, a matte black phone. OnePlus 3T now officially comes in a matte black edition.

Since OnePlus has partnered with Colette for the new OnePlus 3T Matte Black edition, the phone comes with the Colette logo on the back. As it is a limited edition phone, OnePlus will be manufacturing only 250 units of the device. The phones but naturally, will be priced at a premium as compared to the standard OnePlus 3T phones. As the OnePlus 3T Matte Black is a Colette special device, the phones will be available only in Paris – and that too only at the Colette store.

The OnePlus 3T Colette special Matte Black edition comes with OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones. The phones will be available for sale only on one day – 21st March. The phone is priced at €479, approximately Rs 33,500, which is quite a bit over the present price of the OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 3T Matte Black edition will not be available after the said day or at any store online. Your best bet to lay your hands on the device would be to either get it through someone or wait till someone lists the phone online at mostly double the rate. Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ leak again; reveal 4GB RAM, special China-only versions, desktop mode
