The date has already been leaked and the company itself teased New York City as the location, but it's good to have the official confirmation. The phone will reach China on December 1.

According to the GFXBench listing, OnePlus 5T will feature a 6.01-inch FHD+ display with the resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Based on early renderings, the OnePlus 5T is expected to be extremely similar to the Oppo R11s in design.

Apart from these major hikes, the phone is expected to stay true to its original Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM options and the 20MP+ 16MP rear camera combination. It also shows that the front camera will be bumped to 20MP on the upcoming handset. They also released the teaser video below. We're speculating that there might be live music and/or some sort of incentive offered to event-goers for the 5T, but nothing is specifically mentioned in the forum post.

The OnePlus 5T has appeared in the rumor mill a few times, and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed the inclusion of the 3.5mm headphone jack in the upcoming handset.

The OnePlus 5T will officially launch on Thursday, November 16th, the Chinese phone maker confirmed on Monday, adding that its next Android smartphone is set to go on sale in North American and Europe on November 21st. "Guess which city we're going to party in for the #OnePlus5T launch!" the caption read. However, a near-Rs40,000 price mark pushed the OnePlus 5T from the flagship killer category to the flagship category and it remains to be seen if the company approves of a more accommodative price tag for the Indian market.
