OnePlus officially denies red color option for the 3

A thin, slick, all metal body is definitely among the top draws of the OnePlus 3 . What could possibly make the elegant exterior even more exciting? Well, more colors, of course. Currently, the device can only be picked up in Graphite – a solid, very traditional and elegant choice. But, if you are after something a bit more flashy, OnePlus has also promised a Soft Gold option will be coming soon.

Yesterday, there was also word of an even more extravagant color version in the works – a red one. Renders looked convincing enough and a brief listing on the OnePlus website also provided some extra credibility to the rumor. However, a company representative reached out to us today and officially confirmed that the listing in question was an error and that the handset will only be available in two colors – Graphite and Soft Gold. Bummer!

Still, even without the flamboyant extra dye option, the OnePlus 3 is an excellent device, especially considering its competitive price tag.

And if you live in the UK and want to get it you might want to hurry up before “Brexit” takes its toll on prices.
