OnePlus 7T was launched in two main colors – Frosted Silver and Glacier Blue. But apparently there was one more color that didn’t launch. OnePlus designer Hao Ran has revealed on Weibo that there could have been a different color, Gold. Ran revealed that color was not selected but he prefers this golden color.
He has also shared images to tell you how the OnePlus 7T in Gold color would have looked.
In terms of looks, the golden color is not really golden and is rather on the brighter and more saturated side. Ran has also shared that the golden color was not the only color that got rejected, there were more colors during the selection process and only two out of them made the cut.
The OnePlus designer also talks about the inspiration behind this color, he said: “The inspiration behind the color is actually to use strong color processing to reflect the psychological characteristics of cynical teenagers.”
The famous tipster Ice Universe shared the pictures of the OnePlus 7T in golden color and asked for the response. Overall, the device received negative feedback with almost no one liking it at all. The tipster, also asks if you like, it may get resurrected, which in reality, doesn’t seem plausible. But sharing only one color to the public out of the “dozens” of other unselected colors reflects OnePlus is taking some kind of survey and planning to add it and make a trio of color variants.
