Will the OnePlus 5T be more expensive than the OnePlus 5? New report says no


The OnePlus 5T will be announced on November 16 and releasedon November 21 - OnePlus itself confirmed these details yesterday. The companyalso said that the phone would bring "a new view" - most likely, thisis a vague confirmation of the fact that the handset has a 6-inch screen with 1080x 2160 pixels and thin bezels, an obvious departure from the 5.5-inch, 1080 x1920 pixels screen of the OnePlus 5.  


We recently assumed that the OnePlus 5T would be moreexpensive than the OnePlus 5 - not just because of its new design and largerscreen, but also because OnePlus has been slightly increasing the prices of itsflagship phones ever since releasing the OnePlus One in 2014. Fortunately, the5T might not be more expensive than its predecessor.


According to TechRadar, in the UK, the OnePlus 5T (expected to bereleased in 64 GB and 128 GB variants) will cost as much as the OnePlus 5.Barring any unpleasant surprises, this means the new smartphone should be priced similarlyto the OnePlus 5 in all markets. Thus, in the US, the handset will likely cost $479(64 GB model), and $539 (128 GB model).    

Are you happy to hear that OnePlus isn't hiking up prices when launching the 5T?

Hope there is 5T plus with 6.4" like R11s plus.

Ugh, no thank you. The 5T will be plenty big for most of us.

I kind of want a good tablet phone. But this won't be it.

Just improve your camera firmware a bit, and this is nearly exactly what I want.

Using the Google camera with Pixel HDR algorithms on my 3T and it's doing great!

The fact that One+ continue to use a 1080 midrange screen would make it impossible for them to justify another price hike.

If they use the same camera sensor in the 5T, that is in the 5, it's still not going to be as good as the sensor in the 3T because the 3T uses a hardware based gyro image sensor that stabilizes the lens, whereas the one in the 5 uses a software based image sensor. No amount of firmware can fix that. If you don't hold it really still, take a photo, then zoom in, you'll see the blur.

I can't decide between this or the Razer phone. The Razer will obviously cost more but will have that neat screen, front speakers and a larger battery (presumably). The 5T on the other hand will be a better size in my pocket, nearly $200 cheaper, and likely have a better Dev community (custom firmware for the win).
