Few days ago, OnePlus’ CEO, Pete Lau, tweeted that the cost of smartphone components is rising and also said that OnePlus users will appreciate what’s coming. According to TechDipper, this info is provided by ‘a source with good track record’, and it says that the 6GB RAM variant of the OnePlus 5T will cost Rs. 32,999 in India, while the 8GB RAM model will be priced at Rs. 37,999 in the country.
Now, if this info is accurate, then the OnePlus 5T will retain the price point of the OnePlus 5, at least in India, which are great news for those of you who are looking to pick up OnePlus’ upcoming flagship. If this info is accurate, then it probably means that the OnePlus 5T will retain OnePlus 5’s price point in other markets as well.
The OnePlus 5T is rumored to be equipped with a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The bezels are thinner which forced OnePlus to move the fingerprint scanner to the back.
The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood; one version comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, and the other with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. There is a dual-camera set up on back, and the lights are kept on by a 3300mAh battery.
Android 8.0 Oreo will probably come pre-installed on the OnePlus 5T, while the company’s custom UI, OxygenOS, will be included on top of it. Despite the fact a recent benchmark suggested that Android 7.1 Nougat will come pre-installed here.
