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. The Thursday launch event will start at 11 AM ET in Brooklyn, New York City, and will be live-streamed like all previous debuts of the company’s products. Likewise, the broadcast will be hosted on the firm’s official website, OnePlus confirmed.
Starting this Wednesday, consumers interested in attending the event in person will be able to purchase tickets by referring to the banner below. A single ticket will be priced at $40 and while the quantity will presumably be limited, no specific figures have yet been provided by the original equipment manufacturer. India is officially set to receive the OnePlus 5T on November 28th, though a November 21st flash sale is also planned by the company, whereas the flagship’s release in China is scheduled for December 1st.
In a new blog post Lau confirms that OnePlus 5T will not come with wireless charging support. Instead the company feels that dash charging makes more sense at this point. Lau believes that wireless charging is an exciting concept, but dash charge is a much superior option for the time being. “Wireless charging is an exciting concept that’s matured a lot over the last few years. But given the current state of this technology, Dash Charge is still the superior choice,” writes Lau in a blog post.
