OnePlus took the wraps off the highly-rumored OnePlus 5T smartphone at an event in New York. As it has been the case for the past year, India is one of the first few countries where the company will be soon making the new phone available for purchase. Surprisingly, the OnePlus 5T is priced at the same sum as the OnePlus 5 — Rs 32,999 for 6/64GB and Rs 37,999 for the 8/128GB Midnight Black variant.
OnePlus 5T will be up for grabs starting from November 21st on Amazon, OnePlus’ own e-store and the Bangalore experience center through an early access sale. As you’d guess, stocks will be limited during this period. Fret not as the open sale commences from a week after, on November 28th across all platforms.
People (or fans) who attended the launch event held in any of the five PVR theaters (I’m definitely not judging you) will be able to exclusively experience the phone on 16th November. In addition to that, there’s a Rs 1,000 discount coupon for those who pre-book the device.
Furthermore, OnePlus has a couple of introductory offers as well. One of these is a complimentary 12-month Accidental Damage Insurance by Servify if you apply for the Kotak 811 savings account and activate it by paying an initial deposit of Rs 1,000. There are a few more benefits concerning Amazon Prime and Kindle, although OnePlus has not specified the exact details for that. Idea customers will also get a whopping 1008GB of 4G data with the purchase. Lastly, HDFC Bank credit and debit card users can avail an instant discount of Rs 1,500 on Amazon before 2nd December 2017.
For the uninitiated, the new OnePlus 5T flaunts a massive 6-inch edge-to-edge panel on the front and comes with a facial recognition feature. It’s powered by the top-of-the-line specifications and brings upgrades to the secondary lens as well. You can read more about it here.
