OnePlus 5 might come in a new colour variant. OnePlus took to China’s Weibo to post about an upcoming version of OnePlus 5 smartphone, dubbed as Gold colour option. “Guess it. Plus a # 5 #,” the post read. It is accompanied by an image of OnePlus 5 in Slate Grey and Midnight Black colour options, along with a frame of the same smartphone.
Notably, Gold colour variant of OnePlus 5 was earlier leaked on certification site TENAA. The listing revealed three colour variants for OnePlus – Gun gray, mint gold, stars black. While we’ve already seen gray and black colour options for OnePlus 5, it is safe to assume that the upcoming colour variant is gold.
To recall, OnePlus earlier (before OnePlus 5 was launched) tweeted out a teaser image with four possible colour options for OnePlus 5. The tweet read, “What 5hould the color of your next phone be?” The colours, which are a part of the tweet include – Black, blue-green-purple mixture, Red, and Gold colour. Going by the post, it wouldn’t be surprising if OnePlus decides to unveil Red colour variant for the smartphone.
Another possible explanation for OnePlus’ latest Weibo post could be a new device altogether. OnePlus 5T maybe? Unlikely, and it would be way too soon. But last year OnePlus 3 was followed by OnePlus 3T, so who knows. We’ll have to wait and watch whether OnePlus decides to launch a new colour option for OnePlus 5 or a new OnePlus 5T device.
