The first limited edition color of the OnePlus 6 will be available for sale starting this Tuesday, June 5th, at 10AM ET. The Silk 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 Silk 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 of 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 Silk White model is a limited edition, and if past limited edition colors of OnePlus phones are any indicator, it will likely sell out quickly.
Correction, 10:30AM ET, June 4th, 2018: An earlier version of this article referred to the name of this phone as the “Soft White” version. Its actual color is referred to as Silk White by the company. We’ve updated this article with the correct information and regret the error.
