This isn’t exactly a surprising move: the OnePlus 3 was also discontinued when the OnePlus 3T was unveiled. Chances are, once stocks of the OnePlus 5 are depleted in Malaysia, it won’t be available for purchase anymore.
If that’s the case, there’s a very high chance the OnePlus 5T will be brought into Malaysia officially. Mobile2Go, for one, is already teasing the arrival of the device on our shores. Of course, it remains to be seen if the retailer is bringing in official sets or merely parallel imports.
In comparison to its predecessor, the OnePlus 5T offers a sleeker 18:9 6-inch 1080p AMOLED display with very minimal bezels. On top of that, it also comes with a new dual-camera system consisting of a 16MP primary camera and a 20MP dedicated low-light shooter; both sensors come with f/1.7 lenses too.
Other specifications of the OnePlus 5T include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with up to 8GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of non-expandable storage, a 16MP selfie camera, a 3,300mAh battery, as well as Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
Hopefully, it will only be a matter of time before the OnePlus 5T officially enters Malaysia. For the time being, if you’re more keen to get the OnePlus 5, it’s best to act fast before it’s sold out locally.
