Yesterday, OnePlus piqued our interest when they posted a photo on Twitter that teased the city where the OnePlus 5T launch event will take place. Now the brand has officially confirmed the date and time!
As expected, the official name of the device is OnePlus 5T (OnePlus teased this earlier, showing five tea cups on their Twitter account). They also teased the location of the new phone’s presentation event: New York City. Brooklyn, to be more precise. And now we know the date and time: November 16 at 11:00 AM ET. OnePlus has started sending invitations to the press and in the meantime, has also confirmed all the details on Twitter.
