OnePlus 3T, that debuted in December 2016 as an updated edition of OnePlus 3, comes in two colors like Gunmetal and Soft Gold for its 64 GB model. Its 128 GB variant can be availed in Gunmetal color only. It seems that the company will be introducing a new blue color option for its existing flagship phone. The official tweet suggests that the company would be announcing it on March 15.

The tweet with blue background has the date mentioned in American format and below it are the logos for OnePlus and Colette Paris, a well-known fashion and accessory manufacturer. It suggests that OnePlus may announce a stylish blue variant for OnePlus 3T.
Since the 128 GB OnePlus 3T comes in only Gunmetal color option, there is a possibility that the rumored blue colored variant may be exclusive to this storage model. Other rumors hint that both the companies may have collaborated to announce some kind of accessory.

In the last week, well-known smartphone industry leaker, Evan Blass had revealed a new wallpaper that carried the text “Never Settle,” which is the company’s signature line. It indicated that the company would be making a new announcement soon. The new tweet that reveals that OnePlus will make an announcement tomorrow does not seem to have any connection with the leaked image.
Since OnePlus is reportedly going to announce its new flagship smartphone in June, some sources have claimed that the leaked image hints the arrival of OnePlus 5. Rumors have it that as the number 4 is considered bad omen in China, OnePlus would be skipping the number and launching its next flagship with OnePlus 5 moniker.
OnePlus 5 is expected to feature 5.5-inch dual-edge curved screen with Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB of RAM under its hood. Other rumored specs include 64 GB and 128 GB storage option, a microSD card slot, 23-megapixel rear snapper, 16-megapixel selfie camera, Android 7.0 Nougat OS and 4,000 mAh battery.
