OnePlus is planning to price its upcoming OnePlus 5T smartphone at the same level as its OnePlus 5, TechRadar is reporting, citing leaked documents from UK carrier O2. The leak said that the 64GB and 128GB OnePlus 5T models will retail for 449 pounds and 499 pounds -- the same price the OnePlus 5 models are currently available for.
While the TechRadar leak centers only on UK pricing, OnePlus has used the same pricing strategy in the U.S. with previous launches. There's reason to believe, then, that OnePlus will sell the 64GB 5T for $479, and the 128GB variant for $539. Both handsets would be available unlocked.
According to reports, the OnePlus 5T will deliver a revamped design that ditches the physical home button in the OnePlus 5 and instead stretches the screen across the smartphone's face like the Galaxy S8 and iPhone X. OnePlus' 5T will likely come with the same internal features as the 5, including the aforementioned storage and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
We'll ultimately find out when the OnePlus 5T is unveiled on Nov. 16. It's expected to go on sale on Nov. 21.
