The latest smartphone released by OnePlus, the OnePlus 5T, can no longer be purchased (currently only in the 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage), after being on the market for about 4 months. We have no information if it will be more available again. Given the recent rumors about a new OnePlus smartphone that will be released in the coming months, the exit from the OnePlus 5T store could be a strong indicator of a new device, ready to be released soon.
The OnePlus 5T was presented to the public last November 2017, around 4 months after the OnePlus 5 was released. Although the OnePlus 5T has raised the price bar, the standard version can be purchased for only $499.
OnePlus 5T comes with a 6.01-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2160 pixels at a PPI of 401 pixels per inch. OnePlus 5T price in India starts from $510. The OnePlus 5T is powered by 2.45GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, GPU Adreno 540 and it comes with 6GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the OnePlus 5T packs a 20MP primary camera on the rear and a 16MP front shooter for selfies.
The OnePlus 5T runs Android 7.1.1 and is powered by a 3300mAh non-removable battery. It measures 156.10 x 75.00 x 7.30 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 162.00 grams. The OnePlus 5T is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G, and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
In fact, the OnePlus 5T was one of the few Android smartphones that could compete with the iPhone talking about speed and performance. Many websites and reviewers have praised the smartphone, calling it one of the best smartphones, most successful in 2017. Curiously, even if the OnePlus 5T has been a great success, the company has not made the device available again. An explanation for the absence in the stock of the smartphone could refer to a temporary lack of unity, perhaps due to a slowdown in production, now that the hype has disappeared. According to this theory, OnePlus will resume, therefore, its commercialization, even if in a smaller quantity or only for the most widespread configurations.
However, the most likely reason for this situation is that OnePlus plans to release its new top of the range sooner or by the Middle of this year. The OnePlus 5T was announced in November 2017, about 4 months after the OnePlus 5 announcement.
However, most of the reports concerning the next OnePlus phone have dropped the chance to see a OnePlus 6. We know almost everything about what will be, it will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a high-resolution display with a borderless screen, improved water resistance and so on. We do not know the strategies of the Chinese house but the fact that the smartphone has run out for some time suggests that the company will soon release its next flagship smartphone.
Recently, some renders showing the new smartphone design have appeared on the internet. With respect to the current model, we notice a lower thickness of the frames and therefore a greater screen-to-body ratio. According to rumors circulating for a few weeks, the new OnePlus 6 will have a 6-inch display with full HD + resolution (2160 × 1080 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The fingerprint reader was then moved to under the screen.
The hardware of Oneplus 6 should be the upgraded: Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of Ram, dual rear camera 20MP + 16MP, 16MP front camera and USB Type-C port. The 3.5 mm audio jack could be deleted. The announcement is scheduled for the month of June 2018.
