The first limited edition color of the OnePlus 6 will be available for sale starting this Tuesday, June 5th, at 10AM ET. The Soft White OnePlus 6 features a pearlescent matte white finish, as opposed to the glossy black or matte black surfaces of OnePlus’ other color options. It also has a rose gold metal frame and rose gold fingerprint scanner and logo on the back. It will only be available in an 8GB RAM / 128GB storage configuration for $579.
Aside from the cosmetic differences, the Soft White OnePlus 6 is the same phone as the other colors that went on sale a couple of weeks ago. It has a 6.3-inch, 19:9 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and dual rear camera system. The 6 runs OnePlus’ Oxygen OS software based on Android 8.1. Despite having the white back and gold trim, the front of the phone has a black bezel around the display like the other versions of the 6.
While the matte finish of the phone does an excellent job at repelling fingerprints, it also makes the phone very slippery to use, much like the matte black model.
The OnePlus 6 isn’t perfect, but it does offer a lot of value. OnePlus says the Soft White model is a limited edition, and if past limited edition colors of OnePlus phones are any indicator, it will likely sell out quickly.
