You’ll have to wait until July for the soft gold OnePlus 3

OnePlus has confirmed that fans will have to wait for the soft gold version of the new OnePlus 3. This color option won’t be available until late July, leaving the graphite model as the only choice until then.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed on Twitter that the soft gold OnePlus 3 will arrive “some time in the latter part of July.” It will cost exactly the same as the graphite model ($399), and will feature all of the same specifications.

No matter which color option you go for, the OnePlus 3 is a stunning smartphone — by far the prettiest OnePlus device so far. It’s also packing stellar specifications — including a Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB of RAM — at an amazing price.

NFC is also back this year, and although there’s no expandable storage, you do get 64GB of internal storage as standard. There’s also a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, and a 3,000mAh battery.

You can order your OnePlus 3 now from the OnePlus online store (without an invite!) for $399. Alternatively, you can pick one up in person from one of four OnePlus pop-up shops currently located in New York, London, Paris, and Berlin.
