The OnePlus 5T is out of stock and you know what that means

OnePlus has confirmed that its 2017 flagship, the OnePlus 5T, is officially out of stock at the official OnePlus Store in the UK. Is it nearly time to meet the OnePlus 6?

That’s according to an official statement from OnePlus’ UK representatives, who confirmed that OnePlus.com was no longer selling the phones – with no apparent plans to bring it back in the future.

Select retail partners may still be offering the phone, the release added.

“Some stock is still available through operator and retailer partners in certain markets,” OnePlus said in a statement.

Couple all this with the blitz of recent OnePlus 6 leaks, and it’s safe to say the 2018 OnePlus flagship is just around the corner.

Some of the new features and specs we’re expecting to see with the OnePlus 6 include a new-gen Snapdragon 845 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage – though the UK could well never see such a model.

An iPhone X-style notch has also been confirmed – as has the option to black it out, for those who (like us) find it the year’s most unfortunate Android phone trend – but alas no official word yet on the launch date.

That looks likely to change in the coming days (or even hours), though, as the 5T’s new ‘out of stock’ status is surely a precursor to an imminent OnePlus event announcement. There’s plenty of reason to be excited, as OnePlus typically makes some of the very best affordable handsets.
