Gold OnePlus 3 won't land until sometime late next month

OnePlus just announced its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 3, and fans are understandably pretty pumped to see a phone that combines a smart design, top-of-the-line specs, and a budget-friendly price tag. And with this year's abandonment of the manufacturer's old invite system, combined with immediate availability (though some places have been selling out), picking one up is a lot more attractive a proposition than things had been for its predecessors in years past. At least, that's the case for the silver “graphite” OnePlus 3, but the handset was also announced in a “soft gold” finish; where's our gold-phone option? So far it's been missing from the company's order page, and today on Twitter OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei offers a hint as to when we can finally expect it.

According to Pei, the gold OnePlus 3 is looking at an ETA of “some time in the latter part of July.”

As far as we know, the soft gold OnePlus 3 will sell for the same nearly-$400 price tag the silver model currently goes for.

Ever as we get word to be on the lookout for the gold OnePlus 3 in a little over a month, we're still curious about what sort of availability the phone's second color option will see; could these delays in beginning sales of the handset suggest that even when it does get here, stock could be limited? So far the manufacturer hasn't given us specific cause to worry, but we'll be keeping an eye out for any further word about those retail plans, all the same.

Ahh finally an answer. Though not clear cut.

This shade looks nice. I'm kind of tired of the ubiquitous rose gold.

It looks better if front is also in gold color.
