In the highly competitive smartphone market, standing out of the crowd is crucial for each brand. Gone are the days when people wanted to get a decent gadget. Now, all everyone wants is appreciation and acknowledgement for their choices. In such a situation, companies have started releasing a special edition of their popular smartphones. Special editions work great since they capture the latest trends and help people stand out from the crowd.
This has now become the newest rage in the mobile phone industry. Some consumers feel cheated when the companies come up with better and special edition of the phone that they have recently bought. This has happened in the case of OnePlus. After launching the 5T, the company released the Star Wars edition, the Sandstone edition and the Lava Red edition of the same device. But if we put things in perspective, these editions make really great gifts. Don’t they?
Here is a list of the best special edition smartphones and some of these are HUGE:
The iPhone X Bentley Edition
Apple launched the iPhone X and placed it at a price which shocked everyone. The phone was in all senses, quite revolutionary with features like Face ID, gesture navigation, animoji etc. It was the first time that the Cupertino giant opted for a bezel-less display. The iPhone X came in a special Bentley edition whose price has not yet been disclosed but we know that it would be humungous since only hundred units have been produced.
To refresh specs, the phone comes with a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 1125 x 2436p. The device carries a bezel-less design with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The Apple A11 Bionic chipset powers this giant and it comes in 3GB/4GB of RAM and 64GB/256GB of ROM. The battery capacity of the phone is 2716mAh and the dual rear camera setup boasts of a 12MP + 12MP combination. The selfie snapper of the phone has a 7MP sensor. You can bet your money on this edition. That is if you are really really bored (and rich).
• Oppo F5 Sidharth Limited Edition
Oppo has released the Oppo F5 in Sidharth Malhotra special edition on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. This edition comes in a glossy blue shade and honestly, many people love it. It is worth mentioning that Sidharth Malhotra is the brand ambassador for the company. Using the star power nicely, eh Oppo?
Coming to the specs part, the Oppo F5 sports a 6.0-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160p. The device is nearly bezel-less and is powered by the MediaTek Helio P23 processor. It boasts of a 4GB of RAM and sports a 16MP main shooter coupled with a 20MP selfie snapper. The device costs Rs 19,990 only and you can gift this one to yourself if you like mid-range devices with attractive looks.
• Samsung Galaxy Note 8 limited-edition
Samsung released the Galaxy Note 8 last year and bagged appreciation like never before. Personally, I love the curved display of the Galaxy Note 8 and who could miss that seamlessly working S Pen? Well, to make it even more special, the company launched an Olympic inspired limited edition of the device. The Winter Olympic based edition had an impressive white background with the games’ logo engraved in golden colour. The S Pen was also launched with a golden tinge so that it could match with the handset. Another Paralympics edition with a black rear panel was also launched to commemorate the spirit of the games.
The specs of the phone speak for themselves. It comes with a 6.3-inch display and a resolution of 1440 x 2960p. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835/Exynos 9 8895 octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/128GB of ROM. The phone has a dual rear camera setup with 12MP + 12MP sensors and a selfie snapper with an 8MP sensor. Sadly, we cannot buy this edition since only four thousand units were made for Olympic players and the staff.
• One Plus 5T Lava Red edition
The OnePlus 5T Lava Red is a treat for the eyes and the soul. The phone is already called the flagship killer with all its premium specs and super affordable price. If I am to recommend something to you, this phone will probably make the top of the list. The Lava Red edition went out of stock within days of its release.
The device carries a 6.01-inch display and a resolution of 1080 x 2160p. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of ROM.

The Lava Red edition is probably the most amazing special edition in the market right now.
Vivo V7+ Infinite Red edition
The Infinite Red edition of the Vivo V7+ is as cheezy as it gets. Jokes apart, the deep red shade and those golden hearts will make a perfect match for you if you are into romantic stuff.
