OnePlus’ all-new flagship, the OnePlus 5T, has received a ton of reservations via JingDong Mall (JD.com) The OnePlus 5T was announced last month in the US, and the phone was re-announced for the Chinese market on November 28, and ever since then, reservations for the first sale were available. Well, according to the source, JD.com received 450,000 reservations for the device in only 48 hours, which suggests that quite a few people are interested in getting their hands on the OnePlus 5T. For those of you who do not know, JD.com is one of the largest retailers in China, if not the largest one.
Having said that, the phone was made available for purchase starting today at 10AM (local Chian time) via JD.com. Both variants of the device were made available in China, 6GB and 8GB RAM models, and as most of you know, both of these models are black-colored, or as OnePlus calls this color option, ‘Midnight Black’. Having said that, OnePlus did announce a new color version of the OnePlus 5T in China a couple of days ago, and it’s called ‘Lava Red’, that variant of the phone will become available in China, exclusively, starting on December 17. For those of you who do not know, the OnePlus 5T is already available for purchase in a number of countries out there, including the US, India, and most of Europe. The OnePlus 5T is quite similar to the OnePlus 5 as far as its internals are concerned, as both phones sport the same SoC, RAM, storage, and so on. The OnePlus 5T, does come with a larger display, considerably thinner display, and a different dual camera setup on the back, though.
The OnePlus 5T is made out of metal, it sports a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, while you will find 20 and 16-megapixel shooters on the back of this phone. Both phones are RGB shooters, and both sport an f/1.7 aperture, which is quite interesting.
