OnePlus 5

A few days back, OnePlus had indicated via a teaser that a new colour variant of the OnePlus 5 is on the way. While there was quite some speculation that a new colour dubbed ‘Mint Gold’  was coming, Amazon’s website seems to have confirmed that a gold variant is indeed happening.

Recently, OnePlus announced that a new surprise announcement will be live on August 7 in Amazon’s website. However, the image URL address of the image on the Amazon website has revealed some critical news as it has the word ‘gold’ in it. This pretty much confirms that a golden version of the OnePlus 5 is not far off.

The gold colour is not something new as far as OnePlus is concerned due to the fact that the OnePlus 3T had a ‘soft gold’ colour option. It was quite interesting that OnePlus included only two colours when it launched it’s flagship this year.

It is worthy to note that a ‘Mint gold’ version of the OnePlus 5 appeared on TENNA listings prior to the launch of the smartphone. Much to everyone’s surprise, the colour wasn’t launched and the OnePlus 5 debuted in two finishes namely Midnight Black and Slate Grey.

However, it remains to be known if the Mint Gold colour will remain exclusive to the high end variant of the OnePlus 5, which sports 8GB of RAM.
