OnePlus 5T release date, price, and specs rumours

After months of leaks, OnePlus has officially unveiled its next-generation OnePlus 5T at an event in New York on 16 November. 

Exclusive pre-orders from O2 opened shortly after the launch event, at 5:15pm GMT on 16 November, and the OnePlus 5T is now available to buy direct from O2 stores. Open sales of the OnePlus 5T will begin online at from 2pm GMT on 21 November.

Speaking ahead of last night’s event, OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau said: “We love nothing more than offering our community the latest and greatest technology and a user experience to beat expectations. Once again, we’ve worked hard to refine every last detail.” 

OnePlus 5T price UK

 As had been predicted, the OnePlus 5T price starts at £449 in the UK – matching the price of the OnePlus 5 at launch. That price is for the 64GB model. If you want to get the 128GB model, the price rises to £499. O2 is offering a 50GB data tariff for the cost of 10GB on pay monthly and, if you pre-order or order the OnePlus 5T before 6 December, you’ll also get 12 months free of Xbox Live Gold.

OnePlus 5T specs

The various leaks were pretty much entirely confirmed by OnePlus’ event. The OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio high-resolution AMOLED screen, it will run on up to 8 GB of RAM and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.

The Full Optic AMOLED display additionally features a Sunlight Display mode that adapts automatically to harsh light, similar in some respects to Apple’s True Tone tool. In addition, you’ll be able calibrate the screens based on your preferred viewing modes, including default, sRGB, DCI-P3 and adaptive.

To make room for the screen and design changes on the front of the OnePlus 5T, the ceramic fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the device.

Camera-wise, the OnePlus 5T has the same main camera as that of the OnePlus 5, but had added an improved secondary camera with a f/1.7 aperture to help capture photos better in low light. Software tweaks have also been added to Portrait Mode to improve noise reduction.

Elsewhere, the OnePlus 5T comes with the same Dash Charge technology first seen on the OnePlus 3 and a half-hour charge is said to give the OnePlus 5T enough power for the day.

And, rejoice, the phone has kept the 3.5mm headphone jack. 

This was already confirmed in a long post on the OnePlus forums before the OnePlus 5T launch event where the company explained its fondness for the 3.5mm jack, for audio quality and user choice reasons. “That’s why we’re proud to announce that we’re keeping the headphone jack for the OnePlus 5T – and confident that our product decisions for our upcoming device will offer the best flagship experience possible.”

This puts the company at odds with the current trend of ditching the jack, fuelled by Apple and more recently adopted by Google on the Google Pixel 2.
