OnePlus could be launching a new phone very soon.

No one knows for sure if the OnePlus 5T actually exists, but recently the odds are increasing. There have been numerous conflicting reports regarding the status of a second device coming from OnePlus in 2017. Initially it seemed like the company was happy with the OnePlus 5 and would allocate all its resources toward the OnePlus 6 for next year. But, according to GizmoChina, the OnePlus 5T is real and launching in November.

Now it’s OnePlus feeding into the belief that the OnePlus 5T is coming. The OnePlus 5 is no longer available in the United States and a few other countries. OnePlus pulled the phone from its online store, which is the only device the company currently sells. It leaves U.S. and other consumers without any OnePlus-made phone to buy right now.

Taking the OnePlus 5 down from its online store might indicate the OnePlus 5T’s launch is imminent. In the past, OnePlus has stopped selling existing devices prior to ushering in new hardware. That could be the case for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, though OnePlus has yet to tease a new phone’s announcement.

The OnePlus 5T is rumored to have the same internal specifications as the OnePlus 5; however, the design will be different. OnePlus will upgrade to a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) Optic AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

You should expect to see the OnePlus 5T announced sometime over the next 2-4 weeks if it’s even real.
