Slate Gray OnePlus 5 now available in top configuration
When OnePlus introduced its latest flagship killer, the OnePlus 5, it only made the top configuration available on the Midnight Black version. Similarly, the Slate Gray color option was paired exclusively with the base specifications.
That was a rather strange choice, as it forced buyers to accept a specific color in order to get either configuration. However, at least for the Slate Gray model, things have just changed.
The Slate Gray OnePlus 5 is now available both with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The price of the new model is the same as for the Midnight Black version, costing $539 through the official store.
The base model still costs $479, though the small difference in price between the two makes getting the top configuration a no-brainer for folks who have an extra $60 to spare, considering it adds 2GB of RAM and doubles the storage capacity.
OnePlus hasn't also made the Midnight Black OnePlus 5 available with the other configuration, so it is still only available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It goes for $539.
Same goes for the Soft Gold OnePlus 5, which still remains available only with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It costs $479.
All OnePlus 5 models are available for shipping now.
