The Soft Gold finish on the OnePlus 5 is similar to the one in OnePlus 3 and 3T Soft Gold version, however, reports claim that new Gold version utilises ‘advanced sandblasting process’ and is 30 percent finer than its predecessor. The OnePlus 5 Soft Gold limited edition carries the same hardware and software internals like the Slate Gray and Midnight Black version.
