After a series of rumours and speculations, the OnePlus 3 Soft Gold edition has finally arrived. The handset is available on, but it will be in stock from October 2. The new variant, like the original Graphite one, is priced at Rs 27,999 and there are no discounts as a part of Amazon's Great Indian Festival sale.

But the handset is not completely without offers. The Soft Gold edition comes with Rs 500 worth Amazon Kindle credits, 12 months of double data on pre-paid and post-paid connections from Idea Cellular, and 12 months of OnePlus Care complimentary accidental damage protection from Servify.

These offers are the same as the ones that came along with the Graphite edition, which was launched in June. We have reviewed OnePlus 3 and found it to be one of the best smartphones for its price in the market.
