[Updated: Fake] OnePlus Sends Out Invite for 5th of November Event, Contains Clues for OnePlus 5T

by Habeeb Onawole 10

UPDATE: OnePlus says the invite is not genuine, but still no explanation for the OnePlus 5 being out of stock.

The OnePlus 5 is out of stock in a lot of markets. When we first reported the occurrence, some countries still had a few color variants. At the moment India, Hong Kong, and Chinese Mainland are the only markets that still have it in stock and the reason for that isn’t far fetched. OnePlus has sent out invites for an event on the 5th of November and we think it is for the OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus 5T

First, the date is a major hint – OnePlus 5TH of November. If you also look closely at the image, you should be able to see the silhouette of a phone with a significantly thin top bezel compared to the OnePlus 5. What’s more is that there is a vertical line that runs from the top bezel to form a T.

The event is scheduled to hold at the Shenzhen Spring Sports Center and will most likely be livestreamed. Key feature rumored to be coming to the OnePlus 5T is a 6-inch 18:9 display. However, we presume that the changes will not be limited to just that.

The OnePlus 5T may eventually ditch the earphone jack in favor of an IP67 rating that makes it waterproof. It may also feature a redesigned back with the dual rear cameras sitting in a new position. Lastly, the phone may get a slightly larger battery and launch with Android Oreo. Though we won’t be surprised if it comes with Android Nougat and gets the update to Oreo later.

    The true question here is should OnePlus wait for next year to release a bezel-less screen or release the 5T to keep up with competition from all of the major players. Obviously OnePlus doesn’t want to fall behind the competition until release of the next gen processor from Qualcomm. I think it’s a good marketing move on their part. Of course it will interesting to see if OnePlus can release such a phone at a competitive price point. The Archos Diamond Omega for example will release next month in France with similar specs for 499 Euros.

      Yes they got to keep the price down. Huawei just announced the Mate 10 versions. Prices jumped way up. Now I’ll just wait and see what the cost of the new OP5t turns out to be.

        Totally agree with you Joe. In addition right now in the Netherlands the Samsung Galaxy S8 is below 600 Euros

        • Joe Johnson

          $620 for the S8 and $689 for the S8+ right now. Christmas sales shouls start soon so price will go down more about the time OP5T is priced and announced.

    Wtf! Recently purchased a OnePlus 5

  • OnePlus has confirmed that it’s not a genuine invite 🙁

  • Jacek D. Horowic

    yes 🙂

  • Aditya Vijay

    So Oneplus confirmed that it’s not a genuine event. The reason why I think they denied could be Diwali ( Huge Festival season in India ) They wouldn’t like to hit a huge loss by reveling it right now. Specially since Oneplus 5 is now sold out in many countries and India is the one place where they have huge stock prepared for this festival.

    “The OnePlus 5T may eventually ditch the earphone jack in favor of an IP67 rating that makes it waterproof.”

    Really? And why Galaxy S series/Xperias have headphone jack while they’re water-resistant?

    And “waterproof” isn’t even the same as water resistance!
