Gold OnePlus 5 could be inbound in the company's home market.

OnePlus 5 colors

The OnePlus 5's decidedly muted palette may be about to gain a new, colorful addition. The company has teased a new OnePlus 5 color option on Chinese social platform Weibo, showing the existing black and grey variants alongside the outline of a new, unknown hue.

A caption invites fans to guess "who is coming."

One likely candidate is "soft gold" (or "mint gold") — this option was already revealed in the OnePlus 5's listing at Chinese certification body TENAA. Of course both the OnePlus 3 and 3T were available in gold for a time.

Gold was one of four colors teased in the run up to the OnePlus 5's launch, alongside dark grey, red, and an unusual multicolored rainbow hue. A tweet by OnePlus also points to a soft gold color option:

So most of the evidence thus far points to a gold OnePlus 5 arriving on August 7.
