OnePlus 5 has ‘sold out’ everywhere fuelling rumours of a OnePlus 5T

OnePlus 5 has 'sold out' everywhere fuelling rumours of a OnePlus 5T

You’ll be lucky to get your hands on a OnePlus 5

ONE OF the most popular but controversial phones of the year has mysteriously gone off sale worldwide.

The OnePlus 5 launched in June to plaudits but was soon criticised as the panels have been assembled upside down leading to a so-called “jelly-effect” for some users.

This was followed by an issue dialling 911 for some VoLTE users which was fixed with a firmware update.

Most recently it was revealed that OnePlus was collecting user data that wasn’t anonymised meaning the firm could see data it simply wasn’t supposed to, in turn breaking every privacy law in the book. It has since promised to right this particular wrong.

But now, despite launching a special Castelbajac special edition only last month, the phone, (which we still absolutely love by the way) appears to have gone off sale in all territories.

In the UK, all three variants are out of stock and the same is true across the world with some countries removing the ‘select’ button too.

This has led to further speculation of an imminent launch of an incremental version – the fabled OnePlus 5T, following the pattern set by the OnePlus 3T which featured a slight hardware update to the original (there was no OnePlus 4).

At the moment, all this remains wild speculation, albeit pretty much agreed on by a number of sources.

We have asked OnePlus what’s going on but no one has got back to us, which is also highly unusual and stirs the pot a little.

OnePlus has historically made its phones in batches sold in flash sales, a practice that only ended with the 3T. It’s just possible that they’re low on stock. But it seems more likely that something more exciting is going on.

Currently, the only outlet for the OnePlus 5 in the UK is via contract from O2 which says it still has stock but is likely to have bought a batch making their supply chain different.

If there is a new phone, existing users needn’t worry, the original will still be an excellent sub-£500 phone, and will definitely be getting Oreo via an update to its custom Oxygen operating system. µ

Would You Like to See a OnePlus 5T?

Most smartphone OEMs started their business by releasing one flagship smartphone each year and some have released some low-end and/or mid-range devices to offer even more choices to their consumers. It worked well for many. but a number of companies have started to release two different flagships each year. With Samsung, we have the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series while LG has the G series and the V series. Last year OnePlus added a revised version of the OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T, and currently rumors are suggesting we’ll see a revision of the OnePlus 5.

Smartphones manufacturers who are releasing these two different flagships each year generally have a motive behind it (besides additional sales). For Samsung, it was to offer a high-end smartphone with a stylus that was done so it wasn’t forced on their regular smartphone customers. LG’s V series originally offered a secondary display, a removable battery and a focus on its camera performance and media creation. Last year, OnePlus released a device that was nearly identical to its predecessor, barring a few upgrades in key areas.

Instead of keeping their original flagship for the year on the market, it was replaced by one with better specs (an improved camera and faster SoC). Many were speculating that OnePlus would do the same this year when rumors said Qualcomm would be releasing the Snapdragon 836 SoC. Now, we know the SD836 doesn’t exist but people are still speculating about the OnePlus 5T. This rumor has picked up more steam since a number of regional retail channels ran out of stock for the OnePlus 5.

Some say OnePlus is readying a 18:9 smartphone with thinner bezels to replace it, but we won’t know until something official has been announced. If true, it would allow OnePlus to join the minimal bezel club after the OnePlus 5 offered bigger bezels than its predecessor .

Would like OnePlus to release a OnePlus 5T as we lead into 2018? Would you like to see the company stick with the same design they currently have, and include some improved hardware? Would you like to see them release a completely redesigned smartphone that takes advantage of some of 2017’s popular trends? If you own a OnePlus 5, how would you feel about a OnePlus 5T coming out less than a year after your purchase?

OnePlus 5 is out of stock, but that doesn’t mean OnePlus 5T is around the corner | Tech | Life & Style

OnePlus 5 is currently out of stock in the UK and US.

In the UK, the hugely-popular flagship smartphone is no longer available in a Slate Grey finish – in either 64GB or 128GB storage configurations.

Mobile network O2, which is the exclusive carrier for the OnePlus 5 in the UK, still has some stock available.

So, it is still possible to buy the handset in the UK, but you’ll be tied to a contract.

Meanwhile, all three variations of the phone are currently out of stock in the OnePlus online store in the United States.

This stock shortage has triggered a flurry of speculation amongst fans that OnePlus is preparing to launch a new model.

After all, the Chinese smartphone start-up unveiled a minor upgrade to its 2016 flagship smartphone some six months after it first launched.

If OnePlus decides to follow the same pattern, an incremental upgrade would be due in the next month or so.

However, it’s unlikely the current stock shortages are because of an upcoming OnePlus 5T announcement, or OnePlus 6 for that matter.

This time last year, there were already a swathe of rumours about a new OnePlus handset.

Coupled with that, Qualcomm had launched a new flagship chipset, the SnapDragon 821, which offered significantly more power than the Snapdragon 820 used in the OnePlus 3.

Qualcomm has only launched one top-of-the-line processor this year, the SnapDragon 835, which is inside the OnePlus 5.

Best guess – the stock shortages are probably due to supply issues at OnePlus.

OnePlus has struggled to keep up with demand in the past, so it’s nothing unusual.

Plus, the Chinese company recently offered a number of promotions for students, which might have triggered a surge in demand the company could not meet.

Express.co.uk has approached OnePlus for comment on this story.

We’ll update the article as soon as we hear back.

OnePlus 5T with an edge-to-edge screen could be coming real soon

The OnePlus 5 is still one of the best values in Android of 2017.

Inventory for the OnePlus 5, the best value for a premium Android phone, have reportedly dried up. All models of the phone are listed as out of stock on the company’s website, which could mean a revamped model is on its way.

According to a report from GizmoChina, OnePlus might be preparing to launch the OnePlus 5T, a redesigned version of its 2017 flagship with a larger edge-to-edge display to better compete with phones like the iPhone X, Galaxy Note 8, and Google Pixel 2. 

It would seem odd for a company to release an updated version of its phone so soon — the OnePlus 5 launched to rave reviews only four months ago — but it wouldn’t be an unprecedented move.

Last year, OnePlus replaced the OnePlus 3 with the 3T less than half a year after its release, and it didn’t appear to hurt the company or its bottom line.

When I asked OnePlus’s head of marketing Kyle Kiang why it was launching the 3T so quickly after the 3, he told me the company’s small size and scrappiness means it doesn’t need follow annual launch cycles. It launches new products when they’re ready, and if that means it’s sooner than fans expect, then so be it.

The report claims the new 5T might come with a larger 6-inch 18:9 aspect ratio display with curved edges. The screen’s resolution might also finally get a bump up from 1,920 x 1,080 to 2,160 x 1,080. That makes it higher-resolution display than the OnePlus 5’s, but still short of the crisper displays Samsung and LG use in their flagship phones.

Not else is known about the purported 5T, except that it might resemble a Galaxy S8 with slim bezels above and below the display:

Depending on how you like your phones, that’s either extremely flattering or disappointing.

When OnePlus launched the 3T, it included a slightly faster processor, better front-facing camera, and larger battery. It’s possible a 5T could include improvements beyond the screen. What’s likely to remain is the dual camera system on the back, which enables Portrait mode like on the iPhone 8 Plus.

And if the 3T is any indication, the 5T could also cost more. OnePlus built its brand allegiance with premium design and specs with affordable pricing, but it’s already shown that it’s not against hiking prices with each new device. Even if you don’t like the higher pricing, OnePlus’ phones still usually cost hundreds less than competitors. With Samsung and Apple’s best phones now at the $1,000 price range, OnePlus has plenty of wiggle room between $500-$1,000.

We’ve reached out to OnePlus for more information on the OnePlus 5’s out-of-stock status.

OnePlus 5T leaked render suggests 18:9 display, tipped to launch in November

“The OnePlus 5T hasn’t been cancelled and is arriving later this year with minor upgrades, suggests a report”

Earlier this month, there were reports that OnePlus had decided to skip the OnePlus 5T model, and launch the OnePlus 6 flagship in early 2018 instead. However, now a new report by GizmoChina claims that the OnePlus 5T is indeed in the works. The source has also revealed an alleged render of the OnePlus 5T as well.

OnePLus 5T render leak

The purported OnePlus 5T render suggests that the phone will come with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The report claims that the phone will flaunt a 6-inch dual-edged screen bearing a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. The device will have almost no bezels on the sides and minimal bezels on top and bottom. The handset will mark the brand’s arrival on the bezel-less display bandwagon. The render also shows off two selfie cameras for the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T is expected to be a small upgrade to the OnePlus 5 (review). However, since the latter already has powerful innards, it will be interesting to see what OnePlus has up its sleeve for the 5T model. A bigger screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and dual selfie cameras are expected to be the only major upgrades on the 5T.

The report claims that the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled in November this year. If it’s true then it will be very similar to what the company did in 2016, launching the OnePlus 3T just five months after the OnePlus 3 (review) flagship. The OnePlus 3T (review) arrived as an incremental upgrade to its predecessor, and shipped with a marginally faster processor and an improved selfie camera.

OnePlus is yet to officially confirm the existence of the OnePlus 5T model. We will update you if the brand announces anything officially, so stay in tuned with us for regular updates.

OnePlus 5T with 6-inch Galaxy S8-like display may possibly start in November : Information, Information

The rumours are all over the spot. Some say that there is very little like the OnePlus 5T this yr. Some say it is coming before long. Now a different report, the a single that states it is coming before long or somewhat in November to be precise, notes that the OnePlus 5T exists and that it arrives with a 6-inch display that will be extremely comparable to what LG is using in the V30 cellular phone. This display will have a 18:9 element ration.

In accordance to a new report from GizmoChina, OnePlus could start the OnePlus 5T in November. And as opposed to the OnePlus 3T previous yr, which was extremely comparable to the OnePlus 3, this time around the T variant of the latest flagship cellular phone is rumoured to be extremely unique from the OnePlus 5. The report promises that the upcoming OnePlus 5T will ditch the 5.5-inch whole-Hd display of the OnePlus 5 and alternatively activity a LG V30-like  6-inch whole Hd display with 1080×2160 pixels of resolution. The cellular phone will have extremely S8-like slender bezels with an element ratio of 18:9.

The report also has an image of what the cellular phone may possibly search like. The cellular phone seems to be comparable to the Galaxy S8 with seriously slim bezels at the top and base of the cellular phone. The cellular phone seems to be taller than normal OnePlus telephones. The report promises that OnePlus 5T will be introduced in five months after the OnePlus 5, anything comparable to what we observed with OnePlus 3T. OnePlus introduced the 3T variation after the five months of the start of the original OnePlus 3 in the yr 2016.

To recall, OnePlus 3T was introduced in December 2016 with a rate hike in comparison to the OnePlus 3. The 3T was introduced at Rs 29,999 when the original OnePlus 3 was introduced at Rs 27,999. The 3T arrives with a new processor, an enhanced selfie camera, a new 128GB storage variant and several new colour solutions.

Even so, this time there is no new processor proper now that OnePlus can put into the supposed OnePlus 5T. This could perhaps be the rationale why OnePlus may possibly go with a unique display. That mentioned the OnePlus 5T proper now also seems fairly implausible. It looks a transform way too massive to be correct when compared to the OnePlus 5. If OnePlus in truth is modifying the layout of the cellular phone, may possibly be the company would like to contact its subsequent cellular phone OnePlus 6. And if it is in truth the OnePlus 6, then it would almost certainly make more feeling for the company to start that cellular phone in early 2018 and unless of course the OnePlus 5 is seriously struggling in the current market, which yet again looks little implausible.    

Also Study: OnePlus 5 out of inventory but it truly is no warranty of OnePlus 6 early start

The OnePlus has been introduced at commencing rate of Rs 32,999 in India. The cellular phone operates Android 7.1.1 Nougat-centered OxygenOS and is driven by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. There are two variants-a single with 6GB RAM and the other with 8GB RAM. The cellular phone arrives with dual camera established up.

While there is no confirmation from the company on the start of OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 5 which is the OnePlus’ flagship cellular phone of this yr has previously long gone out of inventory in a number of markets like US and United kingdom. The Slate Grey variant of the cellular phone shows unavailable in several international locations.

BlackBerry Motion launch, OnePlus 5T spotted, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Flipkart exclusive and more

Mondays are usually not too exciting, however, today turned out to be an eventful day in the tech world with a lot happening; from OnePlus 5 successor showing up in renders, to Microsoft officially declaring Windows Phone dead. Here’s a quick look at the top stories of the day.

There’s still no official word on whether OnePlus will repeat its OnePlus 3 exercise with the current OnePlus 5 model and introduce its successor in less than a year of launch. However, renders of the purported OnePlus 5T have been spotted, suggesting an imminent launch. Similar to the OnePlus 3T, the rumored OnePlus 5T is unlikely to bring many upgrades under the hood, but if reports are to be believed, the successor will boast an edge-to-edge display, similar to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, which brings us to the next important news of the day.

Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi MIX 2 smartphone in India tomorrow. Ahead of the launch, Flipkart officially announced that the upcoming smartphone will be sold exclusively on its portal. Mi MIX 2 is the successor to the original Mi MIX which was never launched in India. With an edge-to-edge display, the Mi MIX 2 is touted to be the most expensive smartphone by the company to be sold in India.

In the aggressive Android vs iOS battleground, Microsoft‘s Windows Phone OS has lost ground. Microsoft has finally admitted that it will no longer develop new features or hardware for Windows 10 mobiles. Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, announced this in a series of tweets late Sunday. He further said that Windows operating system will only help with bug fixes and security updates for existing users. On the sidelines of this announcement, rumors arose about the company shutting down its Surface hardware line. However, these rumors spread owing to a confusion after The Register did an opinion-based story on Microsoft’s current market performance.

Speaking of the dead, BlackBerry’s latest Android-powered all-touchscreen smartphone, BlackBerry Motion, launched today. Available only in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the moment, BlackBerry Motion features a massive 4,000mAh battery and seems similar to the previously launched BlackBerry KEYone, but without a physical keyboard. It features a 5.5-inch full HD LCD display, and is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

Assigned the task of resurrecting the Nokia brand globally, HMD Global announced that it had sold 1 million units of the Android-powered smartphones since its revival earlier this year. The company boasts a total of four Nokia-branded Android smartphones. These include the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and the recently launched Nokia 8. The installation numbers of Nokia Mobile Support application on Google Play Store suggest that the installation numbers are over one million and less than five million.

OnePlus 5T will reportedly feature 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio

The OnePlus 5T will supposedly be released in November with a 6-inch display and 18:9 aspect ratio, but we aren’t totally convinced quite yet.

OnePlus broke its mold of releasing one flagship per year in 2016 with the launch of the OnePlus 3 in the summer and the 3T later in the fall. A new report suggests that the company will be following a similar release cycle again in 2017, and along with this, we also have a render of what’s supposedly going to be the OnePlus 5T.

Just like last year, the OnePlus 5T will reportedly launch in November. Most of the internal specifications will likely be the same as the OnePlus 5 that came out a few months ago, but there will be a substantial change in design when it comes to the front of the phone.

OnePlus will supposedly be trimming down the bezels of the 5T considerably to create for a front that looks very akin to the likes of the Galaxy S8. The 5T is said to come with a 6-inch display and 18:9 aspect ratio, as well as a bump up in resolution to 2160 x 1080. This would result in a substantial change compared to the OnePlus 5’s 16:9 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, but we need to approach this information with a giant grain of salt.

Supposed render for the OnePlus 5T

GizmoChina claims that the source it received this information from has been reliable with other leaks in the past, but we aren’t entirely convinced quite yet. For one thing, the render of what’s supposedly the OnePlus 5 is identical to a render that surfaced before it for the Oppo F5. OnePlus and Oppo’s close relationship has been brought up numerous times before, and while the OnePlus 5 did share a very similar body compared to the Oppo R11, we’ve yet to see a copy and paste design shared between the two companies. Furthermore, the lock screen that’s shown in the render is clearly Oppo software and not OnePlus’s OxygenOS.

Lastly, it would seem odd for OnePlus to have such a stark difference in design between the 5 and 5T. Smaller bezels and a tall aspect ratio don’t seem out of place for the OnePlus 6 next year, but compared to the identical design between the 3 and 3T, this seems out of place for a T release from OnePlus.

New rumor claims OnePlus 5T is coming in November with an 18:9 display

We’ve been focusing a lot of our energy on the Pixel 2, Galaxy Note 8, and LG V30 as of late, but there are still a couple more flagship phones coming down the pipeline in 2017: Huawei’s Mate 10, which has been subject to plenty of leaks and rumors, and OnePlus’ next ‘T’ release, which has actually been kept well under wraps. Well, until today.

A new report from GizmoChina claims to have details on OnePlus’ next flagship phone, though I’m going to preface this article by saying they should be taken with a big grain of salt.

Related: OnePlus 5 review – the Never Settle promise lives on

According to the leak, the OnePlus 5T release date is set for some time in November 2017. That would certainly make sense, as 2016’s OnePlus 3T was also unveiled in November.

We’re also expecting the OnePlus 5T to sport most of the same under-the-hood specs as the OnePlus 5, which was just unveiled earlier this year in June. If you can recall, the OnePlus 3 and 3T shared the same design and most of the same specs, save for the upgraded processor and battery capacity. But if this new report is to be believed, OnePlus is taking a much different approach to its annual ‘T’ release.

The report states that the OnePlus 5T will supposedly feature a 6.0-inch 2,160 x 1,080 resolution display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. If you can recall, the OnePlus 5 came with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. That means, instead of only upgrading a few key under-the-hood specs from the OnePlus 5, the company will use an entirely different design and display in the 5T. We’d expect that change to come with the OnePlus 6, but definitely not the 5T.

We’d expect OnePlus to upgrade the display with the OnePlus 6, but definitely not the 5T

What makes us question this report even more is the supposed leaked render of the OnePlus 5T, which looks an awful lot like the leaked OPPO F5 render that showed up a few days ago. Not only are the two renders nearly identical, the reported 5T image is shown with OPPO’s software, not OxygenOS. I think it’s safe to say that this isn’t an accurate representation of what the 5T will look like.

Those are the only details that the report gave us about the OnePlus 5T, so perhaps we should use this time to speculate a little more about the upcoming OnePlus device.

Last year, the 3T featured the faster Snapdragon 821 chipset, which was a notable step up from the 820 found in the OnePlus 3. However, the go-to chipset from Qualcomm in 2017 has been the Snapdragon 835, which has powered just about every major flagship released in the US this year. Multiple sources say that Qualcomm has no plans to release a Snapdragon 836, which means OnePlus doesn’t have many options if it’s looking to include a faster processor in its 5T. But let’s be honest — do we even need a processor with more power than the Snapdragon 835 right now?

There’s also room for improvement on the battery front. The OnePlus 3 launched with a 3,000 mAh battery, which saw a big upgrade to 3,400 mAh in the 3T. The OnePlus 5 launched with a slightly smaller 3,300 cell, which could definitely be upgraded a few hundred milliampere hours.

What would you like to see in the OnePlus 5T? Upgraded battery? Camera improvements? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

OnePlus 5 Goes Out Of Stock, Immediately Sparking OnePlus 5T Rumors

OnePlus has completely sold out of its Oneplus 5 handsets. A visit to the company’s website shows that the OnePlus 5 is “out of stock,” including both the model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage ($479), and the more expensive SKU with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage ($539). There is no mention of when or even if more stock will be available, leading some to believe that a OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6 is right around the corner.

The OnePlus 5 has only been out for a few months, having launched earlier this year in June. Supply has often been an issue with OnePlus and its handsets, though usually the shortage of hardware is when a new device is first released. In this case, it is possible that OnePlus is readying a new phone, though if that is the case it will be interesting to see what hardware upgrades are introduced.

OnePlus 5

Qualcomm has not released another flagship processor to supplant its Snapdragon 835 found inside the OnePlus 5. That creates a bit of a different situation compared to the OnePlus 3T, which debuted in November 2016 with a Snapdragon 821 SoC. It replaced the OnePlus 3, which launched in June 2016 with a Snapdragon 820 Soc onboard. Unless Qualcomm is simultaneously readying a newer Snapdragon SoC, it does not make a whole lot of sense for OnePlus to a new handset.

The other possible scenario is that OnePlus simply ran out of inventory and is working on getting more devices in. Over in the UK, the OnePlus 5 is still available at O2, where the OnePlus 5 is sold exclusively in the UK. It shows inventory for both the Slate Grey model with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and the Midnight Black model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, with “free next working day delivery” for orders placed by midnight.
