OnePlus 3 Soft Gold version to roll out from July 26, launching in India soon

OnePlus Soft Gold -1

OnePlus has finally announced the roll out details of the Soft Gold version of the OnePlus 3 smartphone, as it had promised last month. It will first release in the US from tomorrow, June 26th and will roll out in Europe, Hong Kong and Canada from August 1st. OnePlus said that the new variant will be available in limited quantities so you will have to be quick to order one immediately after the sale begins.

The front fascia of the phone has white finish instead of the black front of the graphite variant. On the back and you’ll notice that the gold finish is very subtle unlike the garish gold colors we have seen on a number of phones.

Apart from the color, the hardware is exactly the same internally as the Graphite version and there’s not much to differentiate them.
