OnePlus 5 JCC+ designer phone now in UK

JCC+ OnePlus 5aOnePlus has teamed up with world-renowned designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to create a limited run of exclusive OnePlus 5 smartphones.

The OnePlus 5 is a rather nifty phone already, but what if you want something a little more exclusive?

Well, this special limited edition run could well be right up your catwalk.

JCC+ OnePlus 5 multiple devicesThe designer threads of the JCC+ edition do not affect the powerhouse found inside the Midnight Black version.

You will still enjoy the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage paired with a Snapdragon 835 processor. This imbues the device with rather slick performance.

However, it’s the special touches from the hand of Jean-Charles de Castelbajac that makes these handsets special.

Touches by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

JCC+ OnePlus 5 rear writingOn the rear of the OnePlus 5 JCC+ there’s a handwritten message printed directly onto the metal that reads:

This is not a mobile phone, it is a creative machine for artists, fashion expert, idea catcher. This tool is kool you can use it also as a telephone. One+ JC de Castelbajac.”

Additionally, you get splashes of flare via colours added to all the buttons.

Furthermore, as well as distinctive daubing on the hardware, the software also gets the designer’s touch.

You get hand-designed wallpapers, drawn by JC de Castelbajac himself. Expect bold, colourful, bright and beautiful.

If the hardware design is too extrovert for you, but you love the wallpapers, you can download them direct from OnePlus and load them onto whatever phone you have currently. I think I might just do that.

Best and bold

Whether you like the design or not, that’s the beauty of art, you cannot disagree that the OnePlus 5 JCC+ certainly breaks up the usual single-coloured slabs available right now.

The added benefit to this design is that it just so happens to be on arguably one of the best value smartphones currently on the market.

Price and availability

This Limited Edition JCC OnePlus 5 is available to buy now and will you set you back the exact same amount as the 8GB/128GB Midnight Black version.

You can buy it for £499 from OnePlus’ own online store, while stock lasts.
