OnePlus 5T pre-order page goes live with specs, features, price and release date, but there’s a catch

OnePlus 5T

Not so long ago, we got details of what is alleged to be the OnePlus 5T and this came in the form of front and rear images.

Even though the company has remained silent on the possibility of having a new OnePlus 5T phone in the coming weeks, rumors are rife that it will follow in the footsteps of the OnePlus 3T and release a revised version of the current OnePlus 5, which was released a few months ago.

In the leaked images, all we got to know about the alleged OnePlus 5T was that it will ship with a new design on the front panel – a design that aims to put the phone on the same level as the Galaxy S8, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 XL and LG G6 with respect to the display screen’s aspect ratio. The images also revealed a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and the same dual-lens camera setup on the back.

Now, there is a fresh leak, which comes with a very familiar source, which adds more weight to the previous leak. The same images that appeared yesterday are here, but there’s more in terms of specs, pricing as well as the expected release date of the 5T.

The phone has just been listed on Oppo Mart for pre-order. Apparently, the phone will start selling at a price of $549, which is just $10 more than the high-end variant of the original OnePlus 5. The high-end variant of the 5T will reportedly set you back $649. In addition, the same listing claims that the phone will start shipping by the end of November, which adds more weight to previous reports that the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled this coming month of November, just like the 3T in 2016.

In terms of specs, Oppo Mart says the OnePlus 5T will ship with a 6-inch QHD display screen, 18:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 5 on top, the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options found on the original OnePlus 5 as well as a dual 20MP+16MP camera on the back and a 16MP camera on the front. There’s Android Nougat out of the box and a slightly bigger 3450mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology.

All these specs and features look pretty much the same as what has been rumored before, however, there’s a catch. Oppo Mart is not a source that can be trusted with information about OnePlus devices. The platform has previously listed OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 5 for pre-order, but the design and specs listed turned out to be off the mark. With this in mind, don’t be too quick to believe whatever the site says about the alleged OnePlus 5T.

Of course, we’ll keep tabs on the matter and update you with most accurate details. Stay tuned.
