Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India, commenting on the launch of new OnePlus 5 Soft Gold limited edition, said:
“As a maker of the most beautifully designed smartphones, it gives us immense joy to introduce the latest OnePlus 5 with even more refined and elegant Soft Gold finish this festival season. The latest OnePlus 5 Soft Gold will appeal to those who are looking for the perfect balance of beautiful design and powerful features.”
Talking about the creation process of the Soft Gold variant, as per the company, “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.”
