OnePlus 5T now available for purchase, 6T may not be released next year

OnePlus 5T

Made out of a beautiful piece of machined aluminum, the OnePlus 5T has a gorgeous 6-inch Optic AMOLED display with an expanded 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen is vibrant and lush, with incredible color detail — way better than some of the other 6-inch screens out there right now.

If you want to get this beautiful piece, the new OnePlus 5T is now available for sale. If you bag one today, you’ll get 50% off the Early Bird bundle. It’s just a case and a glass screen protector, but those aren’t cheap.

Normally, you’ll can just grab a 5T from, though there are a few “buts”. In India, it’s exclusive to Amazon – here it is. O2 UK is offering deals as are Three Denmark and Elisa Finland. The OnePlus 5T will launch in China at a later date.

While it’s pricier than its predecessors, it’s still a good amount of phone for the $499(£449) price tag(In India OnePlus 5T at Rs 32,999 for the 6GB RAM/64 GB version and Rs 37,999 for the 8GB RAM/ 128 GB version). It’s comfortably cheaper than the likes of the Pixel 2 XL, iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy S8 Plus, and offers a true high-end experience.

Let me see, if you are a OnePlus fan, so this isn’t good for you. An AMA held on the OnePlus forums earlier today saw Carl Pei, co-founder suggest that the decision to greenlight the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5T wasn’t based on some long-term product strategy but the fact that they concluded “there’s enough new technology” that its customers will find “useful” should they upgrade from the previous handset.

OnePlus 6T may not be released in 2018, OnePlus co-founder revealed on Tuesday while answering a question on whether consumers should expect a T-branded revision of the company’s latest flagship every year from now on.

Question: Should we expect a ‘T’ model every year from now on?
Answer: We’ll make a second T device if there’s enough new technology that’s useful to our users. As of now, we still haven’t decided whether we have enough upgrades next year for a T device.


OnePlus 5T shares almost identical dimensions with its predecessor OnePlus 5 and is only slightly bigger. The phone is 156.1 mm tall and 75 mm wide and weighs 162 grams. The phone features a 6.1 inch optic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080*2160 pixel and boasts of an aspect ratio of 18:9 ratio, in line with the latest trend among premium smartphones.

You get the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (for an extra $60), a huge 3300mAh battery and Dash Charge to give it half a day’s use in just 30 minutes, as well as features we shouldn’t have to point out but will like a headphone jack and an awesome speaker.

Then there’s the all-new dual camera setup, which continues OnePlus’s legacy of amazing photo and video quality with a new 20MP secondary sensor tuned for low light. You’ll have to see it to believe it, but this thing will make sure your food shots are superb even with the lights off.

The phone support dual SIM cards and runs on Oxygen OS 4.7 which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. OnePlus moved the fingerprint sensor to the back, which is totally fine because it’s still super fast and incredibly reliable.

And to add to the fun, OnePlus added Face Unlock, an awesome alternative to the fingerprint that just works — you turn on the power button and look at the screen and you’re in! It takes roughly 0.4 seconds to get into the phone; it’s so fast you can barely see it working.
