OnePlus 5T to go on flash sale in India on November 21

Now that the OnePlus 5T is less than a week away from its launch and few of its features have already been revealed, its looks safe to conclude that the OnePlus 5T will be expensive than its predecessor, the OnePlus 5. Today a test run by someone with a prototype has surfaced in the Geekbench database, and this gives us some new information about the device, and confirms some old rumors.

Ever since the rumours regarding the OnePlus 5T started circulating over the internet, speculations about hardware and prices began flowing.

OnePlus will be unveiling its OnePlus 5T on November 16 at 11 AM Eastern Time (ET) in the United States at an event in NY, which is going to be live-streamed by the Chinese electronics giant in different parts of India. Pete Lau, the company's CEO, tweeted about the new phone and the tweet hints about the higher price of OnePlus 5T. He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now.

But, OnePlus is dropping the idea of this feature. OnePlus thrives on cultivating strong bonds and growing together with its community of users and fans. The phone was a well-round device that offered everything important, while keeping the price reasonable.

Here's what's odd: Lau is acting like Dash Charge and wireless charging can't co-exist, when they can.

Lau added that Dash Charge stays cools and power efficient regardless of what users are doing with their OnePlus smartphones.

"Given present day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom". It's now confirmed that the 5T will not support wireless charging, and on top of that, it may be sold at the same price point as the OnePlus 5. "You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging", he explained. It is not as simple as putting a phone on the pad and letting the battery juice up. While the process of plugging in the micro-USB port may have been bothersome in the past, USB Type-C has made it so easy you could do it while half-asleep.

People often talk about wireless charging in homogenous terms, when there are multiple competing standards.

He further writes. "Some of the best wireless charging pads market the theoretical potential of 15 watts of power, but that's only if you position your phone correctly".
