OnePlus recently tipped that they are coming with a new variant of the OnePlus 5, and now it is finally official.
OnePlus launches the Soft Gold variant of the OnePlus 5 and if you think that it will look similar to other phones like Redmi 4 or other low priced devices then you are wrong as per OnePlus, the Gold variant of the OnePlus 5 looks 30% finer than the old OnePlus 3T Soft Gold. To construct this design, it took the company around 180 days to give that perfect finish. It will not be made available in large quantities, it is a limited edition, and only a handful people will be able to grab it.
OnePlus 5 Soft Gold has similar specifications to that of the earlier launched Gray and Black OnePlus 5. It comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835(64 bit) Octa-Core processor, and Gold color will be available only in 6GB RAM variant, for Gaming it has an Adreno 540 GPU. It will be exclusively available on Amazon from 9th of August in only 64GB ROM version, so if you are planning for 8GB RAM variant, then this Gold thing is not for you. The brand has recently rolled out the 4.5.7 update of Oxygen OS, and this Gold version will also receive this update.
It has a 5.5(inch) Full HD Optic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and for protection, Corning Gorilla Glass is there. But here in display segment, there is some difference the Gold variant comes with White bezels which according to us make it look like a typical Oppo or a Vivo phone. The phone has a similar 16MP+20MP rear Camera with LED Flash, PDAF, EIS and in the front, a 16MP selfie shooter is there. All other specs are identical to that of the regular OnePlus 5.
