After much speculation, OnePlus has confirmed that it is planning to launch its next flagship, the OnePlus 5T on November 16.

The OnePlus 5T is likely to have a 6-inch display with the bezel-free feature and 18:9 aspect ratio. The rumored OS is Oxygen and it will ride over the Android Nougat version 7.1.1 with the likelihood of being upgraded to the Android Oreo soon or even shipped with it. The leaks have not spelt out the details of the CPU that the OnePlus 5T will be fitted with.

The phone may come out in two variants; one with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage and another 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

On the camera front, OnePlus 5T is expected to have twin 16MP cameras in the rear and a 20MP sensor in the front.

Now, many of these specs might not be the actual ones the phone will be released with since these are constructed through some reliable leaks and sources.

On the price front also, there are guestimates being made mostly based on the price the predecessor, the OnePlus 5, is being sold at and it is being rumored that the phone may be sold at around or less than Rs 40, 000 for the 6GB variant.

As for the availability dates, in India, the OnePlus 5T will be sold through Amazon and OnePlus online store from November 21 and this may only be in the nature of a flash sale and regular sale may commence only after November 28.

The company will be launching the device in New York with live streaming being made available across the world.

In India, the event can be watched as it happens in NY in PVR theaters in select cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune. You will have to book your ticket through Bookmyshow paying Rs 99. Interestingly, to watch the launch function live in New York one has to shell out $40 though the company says the proceedings will go to charity.
