OnePlus 5T To Keep Same Price As OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5T To Keep Same Price As OnePlus 5

IT

The base variant of the smartphone (6GBRAM+ 64GBstorage) is priced at Rs 32,999. All will be revealed on November 16 when the device gets announced at an event in NY.

According to confidential documentation seen by TechRadar, the OnePlus 5T will cost the same amount for businesses on the O2 network in the United Kingdom as the OnePlus 5 did earlier this year. So, for a company that likes to dub its smartphones as "flagship killers", the lack of an edge to edge display doesn't bode well. The OnePlus 5 already is quite a performer, but did not quite fit the look of a 2017 flagship.

Speaking about the launch of this new device, the company CEO Pete Lau has given out a hint recently that the device may accompany a price tag of around Rs 40,000 in India. This would be special, since the company does not usually make launch events. If rumours are correct then, OnePlus 5T will feature a 6.01-inch full HD+ display with a 1080×2160 pixels resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The OnePlus 5T is a successor to the OnePlus 5 and although previous year when OnePlus launched the OnePlus 3T - the first phone in T series - it debuted at a slightly increased price of Rs 2,000 compared to the price of OnePlus 3.

Tickets for the show will be available for purchase beginning noon November 8 for $40. The live streaming of the event will be also available on YouTube.

The lack of wireless charging on the OnePlus 5T shouldn't be surprising to you if you've been following the leaks and rumors about the Chinese company's next smartphone. Also, the upper and lower bezels are smaller in size when compared to the OnePlus 5 phone.

Details about the 5T, including its design and pricing, are expected to be revealed during the event.

- The OnePlus 5T will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will remain at $539.

As far as specifications go, the OnePlus 5T will feature a big upgrade.
