Much to the delight of OnePlus fans, the OnePlus 6 is available to buy right now, and it’s a hell of a smartphone.

In fact, the OnePlus 6 is so good and such a good value starting at $US530 that it’s the top smartphones you can buy at the moment.

But wait, OnePlus isn’t done just yet. A quick look on the company’s website reveals there’s a third “silk white” model coming out in limited numbers on June 5. This specific model costs $US570 and comes with 8GB of RAM, which is a huge amount compared to other smartphones – specifically, it helps the phone run incredibly smoothly. The silk white OnePlus 6 also comes with a healthy 128GB of storage space, too.

I’ve had some time with the silk white OnePlus 6, and I’m declaring that it’s the best-looking smartphone you can buy when its released.

Check out the silk white OnePlus 6:


At first glance, the silk white OnePlus 6 looks like a standard white smartphone.

When you hold it and shine it under different lighting, though, the white colour and the matte glass texture reveals a gorgeous silky, pearly aesthetic.

The silk white OnePlus 6 also has matte metal edges in a light rose gold hue that isn’t overly saturated or too deep in colour.

Oddly enough, the photos on OnePlus’ website makes the metal look more gold rather than rose gold. It’s certainly closer to a rose gold colour.

The rose gold accents throughout the phone match perfectly with the silky white colour and matte glass texture.

On the front, it’s hard to distinguish which of these is the silk white model when placed next to the standard black models.

Upon closer inspection, you can see that the silk white model has a silver edge. The black models are all-black.

And the black models have black edges, which look classy and understated. But they look tame compared to the rose gold accents on the silk white model.

The standard black models are nice, but the silk white model is on another level.
