The OnePlus 5 will be available in Australia early next week



The soft launch will only be available while supplies last.

Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus finally announced it was bringing its latest phone, the OnePlus 5, to Australia a couple of weeks ago. Today, the company has revealed exactly when you'll be able to buy the phone during its soft launch, as well as how much it'll cost you.

The OnePlus 5 will go on sale Tuesday 29 August at 10am AEST on the OnePlus website. Two variants of the phone will be available. One with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in either Slate Grey or Soft Gold for $599, and one with 8GB of RAM plus 128GB of storage in either Midnight Black or Slate Grey for $699.

Both versions of the phone come with a free Sandstone protective case and two years warranty. You'll want to note, however, that the included charger uses a UK Type G plug, meaning it won't work on Australian power outlets without an adaptor. If you don't have an adaptor, you can use a spare USB charger from another phone.

OnePlus also advises that these prices may not reflect the final cost of the phone if the company decides to expand the soft launch into a full rollout across Australia.

In other mobile phone news, Samsung just announced its latest handset, the Galaxy Note 8, with pre-orders expected to go live as early as tomorrow.
