The sales would start a few days later on November 21.

However, it stopped short of revealing price details probably to keep the curiosity alive among fans till the actual launch date, and said it would cost less than $600. The speculations started brewing when the OnePlus 5 went out of stock in several major markets such as the US. The OnePlus 5T is expected to be the first device from the company to feature a Quad HD panel.

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! The publication claims to have obtained the information from a confidential documentation that contains the pricing of OnePlus 5T in the UK.

The documents show the price of buying the phone through a business on O2's network, but the price listed is the same amount as it was for the OnePlus 5 - suggesting it will stay the same for consumers too. When asked if 4,000 Yuan (around Rs. 39,000) would be enough to buy the new OnePlus phone, the CEO commented "Enough". If the report is indeed true, it will be safe to assume that the Indian arm of the company will also mirror the pricing decision and bring the phone to the domestic market for the same price its predecessor was launched.

Does this mean that OnePlus definitely isn't raising the price tag?

Well, OnePlus has been steadily making its phones costlier by around Rs. 5,000 each passing year. The company has said that the 5T will go on sale in the U.S. and Europe on November 21 and will be available in India too on the same day via a flash sale, with wider availability at offline stores starting November 28. So keeping the OnePlus 5T's price the same as its predecessor may be a clever marketing strategy by the company.

As per a recent leak through a benchmarks website, the OnePlus 5T will have a 6-inch 2160 x 1080 px display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

OnePlus 5T is expected to pack in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset with 8GB RAM and a 20MP front and rear camera, according to an earlier report by GizChina.

Other key features of the smartphone include VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, and 3,300mAh battery with fast charging support.

The document also suggests we will also see both 64GB and 128GB versions of the phone, with no hint toward a larger 256GB device.
