Take a look at this prototype OnePlus 7T in gold
The OnePlus 7T is currently available in two colors – Frosted Silver and Glacier Blue – but before deciding on these options, OnePlus undoubtedly tested a range of different prototypes. One of these has just been showcased by a company executive.

OnePlus designer Hao Ran took to China’s social network Weibo to provide a glimpse at a gold version of the OnePlus 7T. The canceled finish is quite the departure from previous gold implementations because it moves away from the typical rose gold look and towards a much more yellow hue. 

The prototype is almost physically identical to the OnePlus 7T that exists today, although it does feature some unique lines in the camera module. These don’t provide any extra functionalities but do help make the setup look a little more interesting than the existing implementation.

It’s unclear why OnePlus chose to ditch this version of the OnePlus 7T but, as the designer notes, it’s not alone. In fact, Ran claims the company looked at “dozens” of different colors before deciding on the two versions that have been released. 

There’s currently no word on plans to bring the gold OnePlus 7T to market in the near future, or any other version for that matter, but if the company believes there’s sufficient demand a launch could be on the cards.

This looks so good. Who are those stupid people in the company who decided to ditch this colour?

Because nobody likes that guy who will buy anything in gold color just for show-off. Gold is so 2000 and late.. This is 2020. Leave the show off, be more humble and use eco materials that don't pollute our ONLY planet!

Looks ok.. But they should have removed that carrot peeler type camera bump by adding a bigger battery like ROG2.
