Chinese smartphone manufacturers OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus5, the bezelless successor to the OnePlus 5, will launch on November 16 at an event in New York City. The much-anticipated smartphone will go up for its first flash sale in India and certain other regions as early as November 21.
According to media reports, OnePlus confirmed India will be one of the early recipients of the device alongside Europe and North America, with the first flash sale starting on November 21 and regular sales starting on November 28. The 5T will be officially released in China on December 1st.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had earlier tipped that the OnePlus 5T's price will be under CNY (Chinese Yuan Renminbi) 4,000 or Rs. 39,000 roughly. With taxes levied, the device is expected to cost anywhere between Rs 40,000- Rs 45,000 in India.
The details of the 5T will be officially revealed on November 16 in New York, an event OnePlus is marketing as "A New View". However, according to various rumours and leaks, the smartphone is expected to sport a 6.01-inch edge-to-edge display with 1080x2160 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The camera is also likely to get a bump from the OnePlus 5 and has been tipped to pack a 20MP front and dual rear camera sensors.
The 5T will reportedly come with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which powers the original OnePlus 5. If the company follows their traditional methods, the initial 5T sales will be conducted through Amazons and will only be available to customers with exclusive invites.
