OnePlus 3 Soft Gold variant launched in India for Rs. 27999

OnePlus today launched the Soft Gold variant of theOnePlus 3 smartphone as it had promised, in addition to Graphite variant the flagship smartphone that was launched earlier this year.

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.

“The Soft Gold variant has been toned down for a very light, elegant look and feel. To further accentuate and complement this rather understated take on gold, the design team went further with a subtle texture reminiscent of holding fine, silky-soft sand. This fusion indeed makes the device look flawless while creating a perfect look for the holders,” said OnePlus.

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

We went hands-on with the Soft Gold version of the smartphone recently at the MWC Asia in Shanghai. Check out the video below, also check out the photo gallery.

The OnePlus 3 Soft Gold version costs Rs. 27,999, same as the graphite variant and will be available exclusively from, 12.01AM onwards starting October 01, 2016.

Commenting on the launch Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India said:

The OnePlus 3 Soft Gold version has caught the imagination of our Indian fans and we are pleased to bring the popular variant just in time for the festival season. The Soft Gold variant perfectly blends in with the celebratory fervour and is the perfect gift you can give yourself or to your loved ones this Diwali.
