OnePlus has begun teasing the upcoming soft gold color option for the OnePlus 3 ahead of its official launch. Company co-founder Carl Pei has already promised that the device will be available sometime during the second half of July.
We’ve known about the soft gold OnePlus 3 since the device was officially unveiled, but it wasn’t made available to purchase alongside the black option at launch. Pei then warned fans that they would have to wait until this month for it.
With the last week of July fast approaching, it now looks like that new color option is imminent. OnePlus posted the teaser image above, which showcases the soft gold OnePlus 3 in all its beautiful glory, on Chinese social media network Weibo this morning.
Aside from the new lick of paint, the soft gold OnePlus 3 will be identical to the black model. You’ll get the same 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
We also expect the soft gold option to cost the same as the black one, but we’ll have to wait for OnePlus to confirm that. It’s also unclear whether the new color will be in short supply initially, so you might want to snap yours up quickly.
