It does not remain known, however, why the company did not choose to go for an 8 GB version of the OnePlus 5 Soft Gold variant.
The device is available for $479 and it has the same specs as the other OnePlus 5 colour variants. Also, 8GB RAM+128GB storage- midnight black variant is now also available in gray slate colour option.
OnePlus 5 Price in India is Rs. 32,999 for 6GB RAM model and Rs. 37,999 for 8GB RAM model.
OnePlus teased its followers on social media a few days ago that a new colour variant of the OnePlus 5 will be unveiled soon, and everyone anticipated a RED device. To recall, the company had originally announced that the phone would be sold in Slate Grey (6GB/64GB) and Midnight Black (8GB/128GB) choices.
The company pointed out that it takes about 180 days for the company to "create and perfect" a coating of the Soft Gold colour that it is using in this limited edition. Getting a perfectly even and light colour starts with running premium aluminium alloy through a diamond cutter. "Each second matters in this process or the anodised color takes on a different shade", OnePlus explains the coloring process in a blog post. It comes with the 5.5 inches Full HD Optic AMOLED display and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Keep in mind that the OnePlus 5 does not support expandable storage via microSD cards.
For photography, the OnePlus 5 sports a dual-camera setup at the rear, which is a combination of a 16-megapixel sensor and a 20-megapixel one. It runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with the Oxygen OS laid on top.
OnePlus has finally launched a new Soft Gold colour variant for its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 5. "Change the way you charge with Dash Charge, the gold standard in fast charging technologies".
The Soft Gold finish is similar to the one on the OnePlus 3, with a matte finish gold back and white front.
