OnePlus 5T Launch Set for Next Week

Posted on November 6, 2017 by Paul Thurrott in Android with 16 Comments

OnePlus will launch its next “flagship killer,” the OnePlus 5T, on Thursday, November 16. The device is expected to be available a few days later, on November 21.

So, just in time for Thanksgiving.

OnePlus has been teasing the new device for weeks, and it is expected to feature a tall, nearly edge-to-edge 6-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to today’s other flagship smartphones. It’s supposed to start at about $600, however, which is about $250 less than other flagships.

Today, however, the company finally made the launch schedule official via its Twitter account and on the OnePlus website.

Despite several outreaches to OnePlus in the recent past, I’ve not been invited to the November 16 launch event, which will be held in Brooklyn, New York. But anyone has the chance to go if you don’t mind a lottery and then paying $40 for a ticket; a sign-up will be available soon. But there’s a contest for a free trip. And you’ll be able to watch the launch event virtually too, of course.

I am very interested in this device, and can’t wait to see how this goes.
