A New View – There are many firsts in upcoming flagship OnePlus 5T

OnePlus 5T November 16 announcement

We all know that the official launch of OnePlus 5T is just around the corner and as one can expect, the excitement surrounding it is seemingly getting more prominent. In pursuit of making the event majestic and magnificent, the global upstart OnePlus will be live streaming its global launch event at selected PVR theatres in five cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Pune.

In case you missed it, OnePlus started selling ticket for the event, through Book My Show at just Rs. 99 on 8th Nov from 10 AM onwards. The tickets for the screening got sold out in all the five cities in a quick succession, which is not at all surprising considering how popular the brand is among younger generation. OnePlus with this effort is reassuring its commitment to its loyal fan base for the franchise in the Indian market. OnePlus 5T Live Launch is also world’s first simulcast product launch event in theatres.

That’s not it. For the first time in the company’s history, OnePlus is holding an event in Brooklyn, New York on November 16 to introduce its newest killer flagship device — OnePlus 5T. Selling smartphones in more than 30 countries, this very move from OnePlus emphasis the focus the company has towards global markets. The company has already caused a stir across the globe by making premium smartphones that sell at a significantly lower price to those of Samsung and Apple.

The OnePlus 5T is a mid-cycle refresh that offers various upgrades for the betterment of the device. The upcoming OnePlus 5T is expected to feature 6.01-inch Optic AMOLED 18:9 aspect ratio 2.5D Curved glass display (1080 x 2160 pixels) with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Here, in this iteration, the bezels are said to be trimmed down to the bare minimum to make room for the display. As a result, the ceramic fingerprint scanner has been repositioned to the rear side of the device. This, in turn, spruces up the entertainment factor with immersive audio and visual experience.

Under the hood, the OnePlus 5T is likely to be powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform and is said to come in two variants — 6GB/8GB RAM with 64GB/128GB storage.

The OnePlus 5T announcement begins at 11:00 a.m. ET (9:30 PM IST) on November 16th, Thursday, and the company offer a live stream on its official website- oneplusstore.in/event and amazon.in/oneplus5t. The OnePlus 5T will go on Early Access sale on 21st November at 16:30 IST on Amazon India and oneplusstore.in, while the official sale in India will begin November 28 across all channels.
