You’ll see details on puirchase arrangements on OnePlus’ official website.

The handset, which comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage, will cost £499 and $559.

Here’s actress and model Emily Ratajkowski absolutely delighted to receive the phone from her Valentine anyway.

Demand for this phone is likely to be high, meaning you’ll probably want to jump on this early to secure one.

The Sandstone White edition sold out within two hours of launching on OnePlus’ online store.

Whether the company has produced more Lava Red models remains to be seen, but we’ll find out for sure on Wednesday.

Those interested will have to weigh up the looming shadow of the OnePlus 6, which will arrive before the end of June.
