There could be a major announcement from OnePlus next month. A new leak suggests the company will introduce its latest phone on Thursday, November 16. The announcement would, of course, be for the OnePlus 5T that’s been appearing in countless reports and leaks. Even OnePlus itself started teasing the phone to build upon the growing hype.
Amazon was the exclusive seller of the OnePlus 5 in India, and that appears to be happening again for the upgraded model. A promotional page showcasing the phone’s exclusivity for the online retailer in India has been obtained by GizChina. It shows the OnePlus 5T, the rumored slogan, and the alleged launch date.
The OnePlus 5T is expected to feature a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) Optic AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 with 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, 20MP and 16MP rear cameras, and a rear-based fingerprint scanner. OnePlus will likely tweak the front-facing camera and the battery, which it did last year in going from the OnePlus 3 to the OnePlus 3T.
While the overall body and most of the specifications will remain the same, the OnePlus 5T will have a display that takes up more space on the front. The OnePlus 5T should resemble other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 in that regard.
OnePlus will probably release the phone a week or two after the launch, which would place the start of shipping near the end of November. The company didn’t wait long to release the OnePlus 5 after its launch, and that should be the case for the new phone as well.
