Valentine’s Day 2018: OnePlus 5T to Vivo V7+, list of ‘Red’ phones keeps growing

Valentine’s Day 2018 is just around the corner, and most smartphone players in India are busy capitalising on the day with a red-colour variants of their existing mobiles. For those who think Valentine’s Day is all about sticking with the colour red, and think the mobile gifted on this occasion needs to match this, the list of options just got a whole lot bigger. Do note that most of these newer red colour phones appear to be ‘limited edition’ variants. Of course, nothing has changed in terms of specifications with most of the phones. Red is just the new colour that smartphone manufacturers want to offer.

OnePlus 5T, Honor 7X, Vivo V7+ are some of the newer options that have gone red for Valentine’s Day. Others in the list include Xiaomi Mi A1 and Oppo F5. Finally, one cannot forget the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which come in a red colour option. To be fair, Apple did not launch this for Valentine’s Day. Instead Apple’s RED Special Edition iPhone 7 series was introduced last year to give customers a way to contribute to the Global Fund for AIDS research. Here’s our roundup of all the red-coloured phones that are available in the market.
