OnePlus 5 Latest News: New Mint Gold Color Teased
OnePlus has teased a new color variant for its latest OnePlus 5 flagship. The teaser about the new color variant was shared via OnePlus's official Facebook page that contains a link to a landing page on Amazon India for the new variant of OnePlus 5.
However, it was discovered in the source code of the landing page that the new color option of the OnePlus 5 is likely to be gold.

Currently, OnePlus 5 is available to grab in two color options, namely the Slate Gray and Midnight Black models, which ship with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, respectively. However, it remains to be seen what variant of memory the Gold color will feature, as the teaser lacks details about same. The color is not exactly new for OnePlus either. Earlier; OnePlus 3T featured a Soft Gold version, while the OnePlus X was also available in Champagne.
According to The Android Soul, the company has posted a graphic on its Twitter account last May, revealing about the possible color options for the OnePlus 5 and asking the public what color the phone they prefer. The smartphone maker's latest teaser looks to confirm that OnePlus is eager to expand the choice of colors for consumers.
