OnePlus 5T Launch Event Confirmed For New York


The OnePlus 5T could launch on November 16 based on a leaked screenshot of an Amazon listing. Previous reports have suggested that the company is looking at a mid-November launch for the OnePlus 5T. While the leak doesn't exactly say that it will have an 18:9 aspect ratio, the full HD+ resolution confirms it.

Unfortunately, the price rumors were coming from less reliable sources and have put the OnePlus 5T anywhere between United States $550 and U.S. $650. That means, the OnePlus 5T may feature both EIS and OIS in both the dual rear sensors. Also, the device is shown to be running the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system and not the latest Android Oreo.

Ahead of the official launch - which is expected to happen in the next couple of days, OnePlus has confirmed a few details about the upcoming flagship phone. The OnePlus 5T may still use the Snapdragon 835 since the Snapdragon 845 is not expected to be released until 2018 alongside similar memory options. When a Weibo user asked him if 4,000 yuan (roughly $600) would be enough to buy the company's new phone, the CEO replied with the comment of "Enough". OnePlus has now revealed via Twitter that the OnePlus 5T launch is going to take place in NY. OnePlus is officially keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack for its users.

For those eagerly considering the OnePlus 5T, let me share a key piece of info to help you decide. There is some clarity now on where the launch event will happen, if OnePlus's recent tweet is to be believed. Internet sleuths have detected that the promo is in the intersection of West 34th Street and Broadway, making New York City a lock.
