OnePlus today made the Almond version of the OnePlus 7 Pro available to consumers in the U.S. and Canada. The Chinese brand also confirmed the colorway will launch in the U.K. on June 25, just behind the already announced June 14 release date in India
The Almond version of the OnePlus 7 Pro is a limited edition. OnePlus says the phone’s finish was devised thanks to a layer of film beneath the glass. Together, the glass and film defuse light in a unique way to create the almond effect. Finishing off the appearance, the Almond OnePlus 7 Pro has a gold-hued metal frame with black accents.
Other than the finish, all other aspects of the phone are the same as the Nebula Blue and Mirror Grey variants. It is only available in the 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage configuration. The other color and storage variants have been available in the U.S. and Canada since last month.
In the U.S. and Canada, the OnePlus 7 Pro Almond limited edition is being sold by OnePlus.com for $699. In India, the phone will be sold starting June 14 online and in retail stores for 52,999 rupees. In the U.K., the phone will be sold starting June 25 by John Lewis and OnePlus.com for 699 pounds.
The OnePlus 7 Pro offers a fresh take on the smartphone thanks to its all-screen face and pop-up selfie camera. OnePlus opted for top-tier specs, such as a Snapdragon 855 processor and three-camera array, but left out consumer favorites such as a 3.5mm headphone jack, wireless charging, and an IP rating for protection against water.
The phone’s first few weeks on the market have been rather bumpy. It was plagued by complaints concerning the camera, and ghost touch on the display. The company recently pushed a significant update to the phone to resolve these and other issues.
