Close on the heels of its global unveiling, OnePlus seems prompt in bringing the 5T to India. We have reliably learnt that there will be a flash sale in India on 21st November, the same day as it’s North America and Europe launch, and the OnePlus 5T will officially go on sale here a week later (28th November). Though it is not yet official where the flash sale would take place, we believe that Amazon India is the most likely candidate to host it.

The next OnePlus flagship will be officially announced on November 16 in Brooklyn, New York City. The OnePlus 5T launch event holds the title “New View” that quite likely refers to the FullView display on the smartphone. The event will kick off at 11:00 AM EST (9:30 PM IST). OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had earlier confirmed that the smartphone would retain the 3.5mm audio jack.
As for the pricing of the OnePlus 5T smartphone, when asked on Weibo if 4000RMB (INR 39,200) would be enough for the new OnePlus handset, Pete had simply replied back with “Enough.” It implies that the smartphone might not be priced much higher than their current flagship OnePlus 5.
From what we know so far, the OnePlus 5T is expected to have minimal bezels around a 6-inch full HD+ AMOLED screen. The phone should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Just like its predecessor, it is said to come in two storage variants- 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 8GB RAM/128GB storage. This time around, the fingerprint sensor might move from the front panel to the rear like most minimal bezel display phones.
Stay tuned for more details on OnePlus 5T India launch and pricing.
