Despite several outreaches to OnePlus in the recent past, I've not been invited to the November 16 launch event, which will be held in Brooklyn, New York.
OnePlus 5T is making news on the web since its first rumour leaked.
The event will be open to the public, with OnePlus selling tickets to the event for $40USD, which will include a OnePlus backpack filled with goodies worth $65USD. Whoever interested in the Keynote can either purchase tickets for attending the event in person, or can watch the live stream through the company official page. A single ticket will be priced at $40 and while the quantity will presumably be limited, no specific figures have yet been provided by the original equipment manufacturer. While the leak doesn't exactly say that it will have an 18:9 aspect ratio, the full HD+ resolution confirms it. OnePlus has already said exclusive pre-orders with O2 will begin online at 5:15pm GMT on 16 November and in-store from the 17 November. There will be a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device as well.

Expect to hear more from OnePlus later this week. It is also rumored to pack two 20-megapixel rear main cameras and 16-megapixel front camera for video calls and selfies. The OnePlus 5T will be available on November 21.
OnePlus has been busy teasing out details about the OnePlus 5T over the past few days, revealing small bits of information one tweet at a time. When a Weibo user asked him if 4,000 yuan (roughly $600) would be enough to buy the company's new phone, the CEO replied with the comment of "Enough".
While its great OnePlus is letting fans get closer to the action, we're bemused by the decision to charge them for the privilege.
