The upcoming smartphone OnePlus 5T was spotted on benchmarking platform GFXBench yesterday. But, OnePlus has now officially announced that it will be unveiling the OnePlus 5T on 16th November. This event will be held in New York City, as reported yesterday. It has also been confirmed that the new smartphone will go on sale from November 21st in India and other regions.
OnePlus 5 was launched this year in June and just like last year, the brand is about to follow it up with a ‘T’ model as a successor. The event is titled, ‘A New View’ which hints to a new type of screen. Going by the previous leaks, we know that the OnePlus 5T might sport a 18:9 ratio screen which will give it a bezel-less look.
Coming to the rumoured specifications of the OnePlus 5T, the phone is likely to fit a new 6-inch display, as mentioned earlier. It might also come with a 20-megapixel front as well as dual rear camera. It is still not confirmed whether what OS version it might run, as some reports have claimed that it might be powered by Android 7.1.2 Nougat whereas others claim that it will run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Either of them will be layered with OnePlus’ custom Oxygen OS. Under the hood, it is most likely to pack in the Snapdragon 835, the same processor that was fitted in the OnePlus 5.
CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau has already hinted that price of the OnePlus 5T will be below CNY 4000 which roughly translates to Rs. 39,000 in Indian rupees. We can expect the 6GB variant to be around this price but the 8GB variant (if launched) might be priced well over Rs. 40,000.
The OnePlus 5T will be available in North American and European markets from 21st November. In China, retailing of the phone is expected to start from 1st December. Whereas in India, there will be a flash sale on 21st November and the regular sales would commence from 28th November.
As usual, the live stream of the launch event will be made available for fans throughout the world. Stay tuned to Pricebaba’s blog, Facebook and Twitter to know all the details about OnePlus 5T once it launches on November 16th.
