If you have been waiting for the soft gold color version of the OnePlus 3, your wait might extend for a month. The company had said that it would make this color available soon, but didn’t give an exact time frame. However, thanks to a tweet by the OnePlus 3 CEO, we now have a brief idea about its release.
According to a recent reply by OnePlus CEO to one of the tweets asking the availability of this color, he replied that OnePlus 3 soft gold version should be available sometime in the latter part of July. So, it looks like for about a month, you will be stuck with the currently available graphite color version.
It looks like OnePlus is really limiting the number of options for the buyers. At present, there is literally just ONE variant of the OnePlus 3, and that comes in graphite gray color. You get no memory or storage versions, and just the 6GB RAM model is available for purchase to potential customers. Even in July, you will have just one additional choice, soft gold color. The company has confirmed that there won’t be a 4GB RAM model, at least, not in the near future.
However, apart from limiting the options to the customers, OnePlus has done a fine job with the new OnePlus 3 flagship. It comes with the powerful Snapdragon 820 chip and has made 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM as standard. At the back, you get a 16MP Sony IMX298 sensor with OIS and EIS, while up front, you have an 8MP shooter. The 5.5-inch display up front sports 1080p resolution and comes with Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Also, the fingerprint sensor boasts of an unlock time of just 0.2 seconds. Overall, with VoLTE, NFC, 4G LTE and dual SIM connectivity, the OnePlus 3 is a wholesome phone. It is a true all rounder, doing well in most areas, which is what most consumers are looking for these days.
