OnePlus Will Not Increase Prices For The OnePlus 5T According To Carrier O2
As far as specifications go, the OnePlus 5T will feature a big upgrade. A major change this year on flagships is the introduction of edge to edge, OLED displays. Apple, Samsung and LG all have their offerings on the market them. So, for a company that likes to dub its smartphones as ‘flagship killers’, the lack of an edge to edge display doesn’t bode well.
So, the OnePlus 5T is widely rumored to make the upgrade, that’ll bring the smartphone on par with the market’s other offerings. OnePlus is a small company after all and gathering the resources for the upgrade is no easy task. It’s no surprise that HMD owed Nokia is yet to launch a smartphone with the feature, despite making a strong entry with the Nokia 3 earlier this year.
Now, Techradar claims to have viewed some documents belonging to British carrier O2. The publication reports that there are no price changes for the OnePlus 5T when it comes to purchasing the smartphone through a business on O2’s network. Using this, it speculates that consumer prices for the OnePlus 5T will not change either, which is good news for everyone. It’ll be amazing if OnePlus offers an edge to edge display at no price increase. Should the price remain constant, the 64GB variant will cost $479 and the 128GB variant $539.
Other features for the smartphone include a 3.5mm earphone jack, a rear dual camera, slight battery increase and 8GB RAM paired with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835. After its November 16 launch, the smartphone will be available around the world on the 21st. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned.
