oneplus_3_8A few days ago, OnePlus announced their latest flagship the OnePlus 3. The company announced that the phone would be available in two colors: Graphite and Soft Gold. Now it seems that ever since Apple introduced the gold option to their iPhones, gold has become one of the standard options many OEMs are offering to their customers.

Unfortunately if you were hoping to get your hands on the gold version of the OnePlus 3, be prepared to wait. As it stands, the phone in its graphite finish is available for order. However according to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, he revealed in a tweet that the soft gold variant will only be coming in the later part of July.

This means that if you don’t mind waiting for about a month or so, you can get your hands on the soft gold variant. Given that OnePlus has since done away with their controversial invite-only system, we reckon that getting your hands on the handset should not prove to be too difficult, unless of course there are many just like you waiting for the soft gold version.

In the meantime it should be noted that the OnePlus 3 will possibly be the only handset from the company this year. A couple of days ago they confirmed that they will not be revisiting its OnePlus X lineup due to a desire to focus their resources on the flagship.
