If you’ve been meaning to purchase the OnePlus 5 but didn’t want to buy it in the Midnight Black or Slate Gray color, perhaps the Soft Gold will entice you enough to open your wallet. The company today announced that the Limited Edition OnePlus 5 is available for purchase starting today. The company has decided to offer this color option with the OnePlus 5 after the popularity of the Soft Gold OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

The Limited Edition OnePlus 5 Soft Gold variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Unlike the other two color options, the Soft Gold edition has a white front instead of black.

The company says that it has further developed its sandblasting processor which has enabled the finish of the OnePlus 5 Soft Gold to be 30 percent finer than previous models.

Interested customers can purchase the handset starting at 12 pm Eastern today. It’s going to be sold via OnePlus.net for $479. The company has also confirmed that the Slate Gray OnePlus 5 will soon be available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $539.

OnePlus previously offered the higher-end model with additional RAM and storage in the Midnight Black color option only. This means that customers will now have more choice and no one ever disliked having more choice.
