OnePlus has given its stellar new flagship a fresh lick of paint in the form of this "soft gold" hue. The new colour is available to order globally from today and will set you back $479 or £449. Australian availability isn't yet known but the price converts to about AU$739.

While OnePlus says that the gold model is a "limited edition" it hasn't given any indication of how many handsets will be available or for how long. 

Beyond the colour, it's exactly the same as the OnePlus 5 we already gave a coveted Editors' Choice award earlier this year.

The phone first launched in black, but the soft gold tone is a little less macho. It's still got a metal body and still feels great to hold.

There's a 5.5-inch 1,080-pixel display on the front.

The dual camera still sits on the back. It can take some great shots.

The front of the phone is white, not black, and is home to the fingerprint scanner.

The phone runs Android Nougat. There's no software change over the standard black model.
