For a Limited Time – The OnePlus 5 Soft Gold

    When we introduced Soft Gold last summer, our fans couldn't get enough of this silky-soft texture. Our subtle take on this shade quickly became a OnePlus classic. We're excited to announce Soft Gold will be available on the OnePlus 5 in select quantities. Experience power in elegance with this limited edition release.

    It takes an average of 180 days to create and perfect a coating of Soft Gold. Getting a perfectly even and light color starts with running premium aluminum alloy through a diamond cutter. The surface is then sandblasted and polished with intense precision. Each second matters in this process, or the anodized color takes on a different shade. It's an extensive process, but the result is worth it - a stunning matte finish is pleasing to see and feel.

    Packed with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, this version boasts a seamless combination of hardware and software. Images are focused and clear, thanks to dual camera technology. With Dash Charge, our signature powering technology, you'll always get a day’s power in half an hour.

    Ready to make a timeless investment in Soft Gold? Sales at oneplus.net start on August 7 at noon EDT. For our friends in other places, that's 9:00 AM PDT, 5:00 PM BST, and 6:00 PM CEST. For our friends in India, we'll start the open sales on August 9 at 12:00 AM IST, both on oneplusstore.in and amazon.in.

    Update: To provide our users with even more options, the Slate Grey OnePlus 5 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will also be available on OnePlus.net for $539, in the upcoming weeks.

    Never Settle.

    Nice to see that color returning, It surely had lots of fans in the op3t. :)

    Now I do hope you guys won't stop here and have some more color surprises for everyone. :p It seems that red is one of the more wanted ones. :D

    But do remember, it should be red back and black front. :p

    Got so excited, was going to buy it right now, but no 8gb ram model? Why?

    If it's sounds too good to be true, it is, cos there is no 8gb ram model in gold

    This is a Diamond. I am fall in love like always with the Soft Gold OnePlus versions. But unfortunately or maybe fortunately, there is only a 64/6 version, so it's not worth to change my Midnight Black of 128/8. However good job guys. This is look so so sexy

    I Don t care, because: The real classic is the sandstone back, all this matt black or soft gold crap is nice , but totally impractical. Using my phone all day even at work, it s almost impossible to hold it in my sweaty, oily hands, i had to buy a silicon case to avoid my expensive phone slippering through my hands to the ground. My good old oneplusone never slipped through my hands. And with that silicon case the phone is thicker, all this design is not worth it- better a thicker phone, with a sandstone back and a better(bigger) camera sensor and battery where a silicon case is NOT needed. i don t need a "cool" phone, i need a GOOD phone.

    it's a lovely colour, but had you have released it w/ the other colours on launch, i would have bought it.
    alas, you didn't, so i went with the 128GB version, which is bigger, better and faster.

    OnePlus, please release a Bamboo style case for the OP5.

    It wasn t available when i ordered the phone, and a case is not an ideal solution, as i wrote. It makes phone thicker, so all that "cool" thin design is not worth it.
