OnePlus 5T is Coming to Pakistan

The popular flagship killer – OnePlus 5T is finally going on sale in Pakistan, and will be available at online stores soon.

The 5T was announced 3 months ago and was available internationally shortly after its announcement.

In order to meet the latest bezel-less display trends, the developers updated the older One Plus 5 with an 18:9 edge-to-edge display – other than some minor changes, the One Plus 5T is almost the same as its older sibling.

Design and Display

The OnePlus 5T boasts a 6.01-inch Optic OLED Full HD+ (2160 x 1080) display with minimal bezels and a gorgeous 18:9 edge-to-edge display.

In order to sport the bezelless display, OnePlus shifted the fingerprint sensor to the rear this time and instead of the usual capacitative front-bezel hardware keys, the 5T uses the Android navigation buttons.

Internals and Storage

The internal specifications are almost exactly the same as the OnePlus 5, the 5T comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with two RAM/ROM options available – you can either get a combo of 6 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage or 8 GB RAM paired with 128 GB of internal storage.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus 5T does not come with Android Oreo out of the box and comes with Android Nougat instead. It can, however, be updated to the latest version.


The OnePlus 5T has a dual-cam set up with a combination of 16 MP and 20 MP sensors. One of the sensors, the 20 MP one, kicks in when the light level drops below 10 lux according to official statement.

The primary cameras come with PDAF, EIS, and a dual LED flash.

The front camera is a 16 MP shooter and has EIS, too.

Battery, Price, and Availability

The battery capacity in the OnePlus 5T is 3,300 mAh and comes with OnePlus’ fast charging technology called Dash Charging.

It is now officially available in Pakistan and will soon be available on popular online markets.

OnePlus 5T’s price in Pakistan is Rs. 69,999 for the 6 GB/64 GB variant and Rs. 79,999 for the 8 GB/128 GB variant.

  • went to largest phones marketplace (a plaza) in Rawalpindi for a oneplus 3t case and protector & almost no shopkeeper heard about the brand oneplus!

    • Its presence is not known by many people in Pakistan. It is a very high class smartphone and the manufacturer did not market it like other brands such as Samsung and Apple. Oneplus created a pull market instead of push market like Samsung and Apple… The company launched sales on referral basis only. Tech savvy Smartphone lovers are attracted to Oneplus.

    • It is ironic though that one being in the mobile business and not knowing all the major players.

      Same story in Karachi though but this doesn’t mean that 1+ is a cheap product or anything. I’m personally using 3T and it is superb.

  • It’s already available since launch on HSN for Rs.65k. Waiting for the Sandstone white variant.

    • It must be Hydrogen OS version. Most retailers and online stores import from China with Chinese OS (Hydrogen OS)… The Global Android version called Oxygen OS…. always check before buying.

    • Getting official warranty PTA approved handset for 5k is definitely worth it. I guess those websites will drop the price for gray market handsets now.

    • But they aren’t in that price range so 1+ trumps them easily. No idea why your prefer them but 1+ is indeed a great phone.

  • Amazing brand i have oneplus 3t main 1 saal say use kr rha hoon or is sya zyada maza mujhay aaj tak nhi aaya very smoth no lags superb battery timming fast charging oreo update samsung k muqabalay main bohat behtar phone

  • Check the reviews about them. 1+ is superior.

    And you are talking about the regular Mate 10, not even Pro.

    • Superior in what way 3300 mah vs 4000 mah? FHD+ vs QHD? Desktop mode? And don’t even get me started on data leaks. Quote some facts, Yes not even the pro beats it.

      • Go ahead and buy Huawei then. As for data leaks, you need to get your facts straight. Read up on the latest articles. Even so, you are naïve to think that other manufacturers preserve your so called online privacy in this era.

        As for the specs, yes those two points make a lot of difference right? ^^ Again check out some reviews for both and you ll get the picture.

        Don’t get defensive though. If you like it you go ahead buy.

        • I have both phones, I’m an app developer and work for the company which launched OnePlus in Pakistan. So I don’t have to rely on reviewe by other people.

          • Ofcourse you do now.

            Strange though you talk about data leaks while being a app developer because technically you should have more knowledge about them but various sources still cite that the recent clipboard ‘issue’ was nothing but false alarm.

            Cheers though.

      • It comes down to preference really, both phones are great and one of the best ones available in the market.

        If you’re a stock (close to stock at least) Android fan, OnePlus is the way to go because even though both, OnePlus5T and Mate10 have extremely powerful hardware, OnePlus will always out-perform it in processing and multitasking due to its efficient OS.

        Mate 10, however, has a more premium build I’d say, water proof and better material finish.

        Both phones have great cameras too, again, its about your preference and what you need in your phone’s camera because both have their pros and cons. We can’t really say that one device is better than the other.

        Its true tho, there isnt a considerably noticeable difference between a QHD and an FHD+, not unless you really dig your eyes into the screen, so an AMOLED will look better than an LCD even if its a lower resolution.

        • Definitely is preference. What OnePlus needs is improving the Camera app, the secondary sensor is better for low light WHEN it kicks in, problem is user can not control it even with manual / Pro mode. So with some light I can not force to use low light sensor. AI in the Huawei camera app is much better in my usage and the way they utilize the monochrome sensor which the user can control.

          I also do not get the point of OnePlus launching with Nougat rather than Oreo and not supporting project treble. Hopefully they will cover the gap with updates, like the 3T.

          Huawei is not as stock as OnePlus but still OK, I could not get used to MIUI by Xiaomi though.
