How can I buy the OnePlus 5T? UK pricing, release date and availability

The OnePlus 5T is coming to the UK on November 21 and you can pick one up in a number of different ways, be it SIM-free or on contract with O2.

One of our most anticipated smartphones of 2017 is finally here, and we’re not talking about a new Samsung Galaxy or iPhone. The OnePlus 5T delivers specs that are just as strong as those top-end flagship devices, with some gorgeous styling and innovative features such as facial recognition. Even better, OnePlus has managed it with an asking price of just £449 here in the UK.

We’re already massive fans of the earlier OnePlus 5, which again served up a premium experience for less cash than rivals. Here’s hoping the OnePlus 5T can replicate that handset’s success; stay tuned for our in-depth review.

Here’s how you can get your hands on one of these mobiles, to see what all the fuss is about.

OnePlus 5T models

You can grab the OnePlus 5T in two variations: a 64GB silver model and a 128GB Midnight Black version. As well as the different colour and additional storage space, the black model boasts a whopping 8GB of RAM. That’s a step up from the already-generous 6GB stuffed inside the base model.

OnePlus 5T UK pricing and release date

You can grab the OnePlus 5T from November 21 at 2pm precisely here in the UK. The 64GB model will cost you £449 SIM-free, just like the OnePlus 5, while the Midnight Black version costs £499.

The phone will be sold via the OnePlus website.

Of course, you can also pick up the OnePlus 5T on contract, with O2 acting as the exclusive UK carrier.

OnePlus 5T O2 pop-up stores

On November 21, O2 will be operating pop-up stores across the country for eager fans to bag their own OnePlus 5T. You can find them at the Oxford Street location, Westfield Stratford, Manchester Arndale and the Castle Lane location in Belfast

As well as selling the phones, these pop-ups will be offering free swag bags to lucky punters.

OnePlus 5T UK contract details

As for the contract details, O2 is offering a 50GB data tariff for the price of a standard 10GB pay monthly account. That’ll cost you £49 per month for a 24 month contract, with an up-front £10 payment.

Don’t need that much data? You can grab 4GB per month for £38 per month, also with a tenner up front.

If you pre-order the OnePlus 5T before December 6 you’ll also get a full year of Xbox Live Gold thrown in.

Alternatively you can buy the phone SIM-free for the same price as the official website.
