0

As of last week the OnePlus 5 smartphone is no longer available for sale. Many believe that the Shenzhen-based company will announce a new handset in the near future. Some believe the new device could hold the name OnePlus 5T while other believe it could be OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 5 phone no longer available to buy

Co-founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei used Twitter to explain that they already sold all the OnePlus 5 devices fabricated and there will be no more. Although there were no sales numbers provided, the phone sold out faster than expected. Even so, it seems the company will not manufacture more. Everyone assumes the reason is the fact that a newer device will be released soon.

Judging from last year when OnePlus 3 was announced in June and OnePlus 3T was announced in November, a future OnePlus 5T should be announced next month.

Many speculate that the new OnePlus device will support an almost bezel-less 6-inch screen, similar to the Vivo X20.
