OnePlus 5T Release Date, Price, Features & Specs
OnePlus 5T Release Date
OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 5T will be revealed during a special event in Brooklyn, New York at 4pm GMT on November 16, 2017.
Exclusive pre-orders through the official OnePlus UK network partner O2 will begin online at 5:15pm GMT on November 16. This will be followed by in-store pre-orders on November 17.
However, the OnePlus 5T won’t go on open sale until 2pm GMT on November 21.
OnePlus 5T Price
While the base 6GB RAM and 64GB storage version of the OnePlus 5 costs Rs 32,999, the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option is available for Rs 37,999. A recent report by TechRadar in the UK claimed that the OnePlus 5T will sell at OnePlus 5 prices in that country. We can expect the same in India which means the OnePlus 5T may be priced close in line with the OnePlus 5 although that would clearly jeopardise the future of the company’s incumbent flagship phone.
OnePlus 5T Design, Specs and Features:
This year, however, there’s been no such iterative chip announced. Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 835 – which appears in the OnePlus 5, Samsung Galaxy S8, and LG V30 – has yet to be superseded.
Instead, it’s reported – by GizmoChina, a tech blog – that the OnePlus 5T will feature a large 6-inch display with a 2160 x 1080-pixel resolution. That’s compared to the 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel display seen on the OnePlus 5. This also means a switch to an 18:9 aspect ratio, rather than the more traditional 16:9.
With a number of leaks also suggesting there will be two 20MP sensors on the back of the OnePlus 5T, the co-founder of OnePlus Carl Pei has also tweeted some images that look to be taken with the phone’s rear camera.
You can see one below that likely shows the portrait mode on the OnePlus 5T while we have also seen Pei tease the camera in further shots and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has done a similar thing too.
There isn’t an upgrade to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset found inside the OnePlus 5, so we can safely assume the company will decide to include that same setup with 6GB or 8GB of RAM inside the OnePlus 5T.
Our source that gave us the pricing information at the top of this page also suggests the phone will come in either 64GB or 128GB storage sizes.
OnePlus may also upgrade the battery on the OnePlus 5T to power that new screen with an AnTuTu benchmark spotted by GizChina saying it be a 3,450mAh cell (compared to the 3,300mAh one in the OnePlus 5).
