The OnePlus 5T has been officially confirmed to exist and the venue of its launch is said to be Brooklyn, New York. A few hours ago, the official Twitter page revealed the launch date as November 16 and included a teaser video with the announcement.
The theme for the OnePlus 5T is “A New View”, hinting at a new display which is the biggest change coming to the phone.
