OnePlus 5 confirmed to be discontinued once it's sold out


OnePlus 5T is certainly one of the hottest devices in the smartphone industry these days. A flagship that offers powerful specs at almost half the price of an iPhone X is something that everyone looking for a top-of-the-line smartphone should consider.

However, the OnePlus 5T is not a major upgrade over the OnePlus 5. With the exception of the display and camera, these phones are almost the same. That's what makes OnePlus' decision to phase out the OnePlus 5 perfectly justifiable.

OnePlus India's General Manager Vikas Aggarwal confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will be discontinued once it's sold out, which should probably happen by the end of the year. It's the same thing that happened with the OnePlus 3T, which was discontinued at the end of May.


Mr. Aggarwal also said that OnePlus launched a second flagship with minimal improvements over the previous model because at the time of OnePlus 5's release it was the best phone the company could possibly offer.

However, in the meantime, many companies launched new smartphones that offer similar, if not better specs, so OnePlus needed to remain competitive, hence the OnePlus 5T's release.
