OnePlus 5 "more popular" than OnePlus assumed it would be - that's why you can no longer buy it


Last week, OnePlus stopped selling the OnePlus 5 in the US and various other markets, prompting us to believe that a OnePlus 5T (or maybe a OnePlus 6) would be announced in the near future.

 

While OnePlus has yet to mention anything about a new handset, one of the company's co-founders did comment on the fact that the OnePlus 5 is no longer available to buy. More exactly, Carl Pei took to Twitter to say the following: "Guess the OnePlus 5 was more popular than we thought." No sales numbers were provided, but the was in that sentence suggests that OnePlus is no longer producing its current flagship. So we can only assume that a brand new smartphone is already being manufactured.

 

Last year, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T were announced in June and November, respectively. This year, the OnePlus 5 was officially unveiled on June 20, thus we could certainly see a OnePlus 5T (or OnePlus 6) landing next month.  

 

According to recent rumors, OnePlus' next flagship phone might sport a near-bezel-less 6-inch screen, possibly resembling the Vivo X20. For the record, OnePlus is part of a larger company (BBK Electronics) that also includes brands like Vivo and Oppo. 


The OnePlus 5 itself is merely an upgraded Oppo R11, so we won't be surprised if the OnePlus 5T / 6 turns out to be sharing its design and specs with a phone that's already been announced (albeit only in China).
