(Pocket-lint) - This is the OnePlus 6 in its limited edition Silk White finish. Oh la la.

Following the OnePlus 6 announcement at The Copper Box in London today, 16 May, the handset was revealed in Midnight Black and Mirror Black for its 22 May launch.

We've been handling the phone for a number of weeks since launch - and you can read our full review here - but in this Silk White finish, which launched on 5 June, our jaws have dropped that little bit more.


The limited edition comes in an 8GB RAM and 128GB storage form, hitting the sweet spot of specs, priced £519. That means there's no price premium over the other finishes. We're not surprised the initial batch of this limited edition immediately sold out.

Inevitably difficult to photograph, the Silk White OnePlus 6 has a glass rear that includes crushed pearl. No, really. That might sound overly decadent, but it gives the rear a very matte finish that doesn't look like glass at all. In the right light it catches a subtle blue, pearl-like colour.

To match the white the metal areas are a rose gold colour, including the rear fingerprint scanner, complemented with a deep black finish for the dual camera unit to the rear.

Most fancy, eh? More stock is on its way, with OnePlus saying you'll be able to get it again from 12 June.
