It looks like OnePlus 5
is set to receive an additional color option. Barely a few hours ago, this teaser image (see below) was shared by the phone maker through its official Weibo account, which makes the information more or less official.
So, who is coming
indeed? Well, it would be safe to assume that "Mint Gold" is the most likely candidate, as the hue was present on the OnePlus 5 TENAA (Chinese regulatory agency) listing. Furthermore, its predecessor OnePlus 3T
also featured a similar variant, although the official name for that color was "Soft Gold".
Another big question is whether this new hue will also bring different specs. As you might know, the two color versions of the OnePlus 5 released so far actually have different specifications and prices. The basic "Slate Gray" version sports 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while "Midnight Black" boasts 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM.
In any case, we'll probably find out soon, as such official teasers re usually a clear indication of an impending release.
