The OnePlus 5T will carry the same price tag as its predecessor, the OnePlus 5, according to a new report – meaning pricing will start at £449 for the 64GB variant and top out at £540 for the 128GB model.
Scheduled to be announced on November 16, the OnePlus 5T is rumoured to feature near-identical internals to the OnePlus 5; it should pack the same Snapdragon 835 processor, 6/8GB of RAM and 16MP front-facing camera.
The successor is, however, tipped to tout a larger 6-inch edge-to-edge Full HD AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, an upgraded dual-camera configuration (20MP+20MP) and a beefier 3,500mAh non-removable battery.
Those aren’t groundbreaking improvements by any means, but they’re everything the OnePlus 5 should have shipped with when it hit the shelves back in June – and exactly what it needs to compete with the table-topping Galaxy S8.
Granted, Samsung’s offering has a higher-resolution screen and some neat software features, but the OnePlus 5T will sport a dual-camera and is expected to cost a fraction of the price, making it worthy of OnePlus’ “Flagship Killer” title.
