Check out these canceled OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro 5G colors
Vanilla OnePlus 9 is sold in three eye-catching colors – Winter Mist, Arctic Sky and Astral Black. The prize OnePlus 9 Pro, on the other hand, is available in three more sophisticated finishes – Morning Mist, Forest Green and Stellar Black.
But as it turns out, there were two additional versions of each model that never came on the market.
A glossy green OnePlus 9 and a matte white OnePlus 9 Pro
Tipster Max Jambor has revealed that OnePlus created and subsequently canceled a Glossy Silver version of OnePlus 9 prior to release. It also scrapped a glossy green finish that resembled the OnePlus 8Ts Aquamarine Green colorway.
Official press releases of these OnePlus 9 models have not been leaked, but Jambor has created concept renderings (seen above) that visualize the acclaimed finishes. The photos are reportedly based on live photos.
In addition, versions of Matte White and Glossy Black by OnePlus 9 Pro (visualized below) was in the pipeline at one step. The latter was presumably killed in favor of the matte Stellar Black finish that made it to market.
Alternatively, the brand may choose to reserve some of these colors for OnePlus 9T launches in the second half of 2021.
