Smartphone transactions hit a record high in the US on Black Friday. On this occasion smartphone manufacturers are offering various discounts including price cut on their devices, OnePlus also decided to reduce the price but by merely $0.01 on the new OnePlus 5T, which is 60 paise in Indian currency.
The OnePlus says, they can’t offer any discount on its latest device OnePlus 5T. With a very bold stance, OnePlus stays to say, "Our goal is to share good technology with the world. That's why we price our devices fairly year-round so that you don't have to double check the math. Say no to Black Friday price games.
Mind games are tiring for everyone. (A great line for your Tinder profile.) We prefer to keep the focus on making good products to share with the world. In order to do so, we have to make some money in the process. At the same time, our users would like to save some money".
Focussing on the price tag the OnePlus continues to say that, "we make money to fund our product and feed the team. You save money and get the best user experience, whether it's Black Friday or Taco Tuesday. So pick-up your OnePlus 5T today at basically the same price - just £0.01 off. We'll throw in our Dash Power Bundle at 50% off for 24 hours. We can do that much. You won't get a huge price slash or rebate on this device today if you order today. You'll just get the best device we've ever created and the immense satisfaction that you're supporting a smartphone that is changing the way our industry works".
While on Friday, OnePlus said it sold out its newly-launched OnePlus 5T within five minutes of the special one-hour preview sale on Amazon. As for its specifications, the OnePlus 5T features a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution and protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. OnePlus has also introduced Face Unlock in the OnePlus 5T as a first in the OnePlus devices and claims to unlock the phone in 0.4 seconds. However, the Face Unlock feature will not work with third party Payment apps. OnePlus 5T is powered by Snapdragon 835 Soc and will be available in two storage options - 6GB RAM/64GB internal storage and an 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage option. It will run the latest OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The smartphone will be backed by a 3300 mAh battery which will also feature Dash Charging.
In terms of optics, the OnePlus 5T sports a dual camera setup at the back, which claims to deliver an improved performance in 'Low-light photography' and 'Portrait' images over the OnePlus 5. Though the smartphone carries almost similar camera-hardware specifications as in OnePlus 5, the secondary lens on the OnePlus 5T features Intelligent Pixel Technology. OnePlus 5T also features a 3.55 mm headphone jack.
