OnePlus teases release of soft gold OnePlus 3

Gold OnePlus 3

After being available only in graphite since its launch in June, the OnePlus 3 will soon be sold in gold as well, a new teaser image confirms.

On Thursday, a photo appeared on Chinese social media website Weibo showing off the new variant of OnePlus’ latest flagship smartphone and suggesting the phone is almost ready to be released in the wild.

Last month, a Twitter user asked Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlus, when consumers could expect to see the gold OnePlus 3 hit the company’s website. At the time, Pei promised the phone would arrive “sometime in the latter part of July“, and it looks like the company is right on schedule.
