OnePlus 5T, the flagship smartphone of the China-based OnePlus is now no longer available for purchase through the company’s official online store. The company has confirmed that the device is permanently out of stock in North America.
The development comes just after four months of the OnePlus 5T launch. The OnePlus 5T — the successor of the OnePlus 5, was launched in November 2017. This development also comes at a time when there are lots of leaks and rumors surrounding the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone — OnePlus.
According to several reports, the successor of the OnePlus 5T is scheduled to launch in late Q2 2018, most probably in late May or early June.
OnePlus’ Global Marketing Chief and General Manager of North America Kyle Kiang said that every single unit of the OnePlus 5T has been sold out in North America. Last year, OnePlus had witnessed around 139 percent growth in the region, accounting for about 25 percent of the company’ entire online sales.
Recently, a new leak surfaced online revealing specs of the upcoming flagship smartphone. The OnePlus 6 will feature a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The display will have an Apple iPhone X-like notch on the top.
Under the hood, it is expected to be powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship processor — Snapdragon 845 clocked at 2.7GHz, which is powering almost all of the flagship smartphones announced this year. Further, it suggests that the smartphone will pack 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. There will be another variant which will have 8GB RAM with 256GB onboard storage and is expected to be priced at $749.
As of the camera department, the OnePlus 6 will feature a dual camera setup and will come with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor with a f/1.7 aperture on both lenses. On the front side, the phone will come equipped with a 20-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
The smartphone will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own Oxygen OS custom interface on top. The phone will be fuelled by a 3,450mAh battery and we expect that it will support the company’s own fast charging technology — Dash Charging.
Earlier leaks surrounding the OnePlus 6 smartphone claimed that it would be arriving with an aluminum body. Some reports suggest that OnePlus’ upcoming flagship device may carry support 3D facial recognition, but it won’t be as sophisticated as Face ID on iPhone X.
