Teasers over the past day or so have had us wonder what exactly OnePlus is going to launch this week, and we think we might know the answer.
This year we have seen a huge jump in the number of Chinese phone makers that have released alternative colour versions of their phones. Back in the early days of the smartphone you could have a black phone, and if you were lucky you could go for a cover to add a splash of colour.
After black phones, we were then given the choice of white, but when brands started to use glass and alloy the colour choices hit rainbow proportions!
It’s not pretty common to be given the option to have gold, silver, grey, black, jet black, rose gold, blue, green or even red which has us wonder what OnePlus are up to with their recent blue teasers.
We know whatever OnePlus is planning to launch will be first unveiled at Colette in Paris, and as it seems a little early in the life cycle of the OP3T for an all new phone to go on sale we’re wondering if a new colour option is on the cards.
Currently the OnePlus 3T is only available grey or soft gold, a blue option would be rather special and would help boost sales of the flagship ahead of the release of an all new OnePlus range topper later in the year.
Gizchina News of the week
Apparently the next OnePlus phone will see such huge changes over the current phone that the brand has decided to jump to a model number and go straight to the OnePlus 5. The OP5 is rumoured to feature a dual rear camera, Snapdragon 835 and have a water resistant body. At this time we have no idea when the OP5 will go on sale.
