OnePlus 5T with 6-inch bezel-less display to launch on November 5, company confirms

first_imgAfter reports last week that OnePlus is rumoured to come out with a follow up to the OnePlus 5, called the OnePlus 5T, before the end of the year, the company has now confirmed the same. As per the press invites being sent out, the company is planning to hold an event on November 5 where it will likely launch the OnePlus 5T.(Update: Turns out the invite was fake and there is no launch event planned  as of now.)Apart from confirming the date of unveiling, the media invite also features an outline of a phone with the letter T inside. This pretty much confirms the existence of the OnePlus 5T. Moreover, the outline of the phone also reveals narrow bezels on the sides and the top, which confirms earlier reports that the smartphone will sport an edge-to-edge display similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8. To recall, the OnePlus 5 was launched a little over three months ago in June, and featured a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920) display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. The upcoming OnePlus 5T is expected to feature slimmer bezels to compete with a slew of premium smartphones this that have features near bezel-less displays such as the Galaxy S8, LG G6, Mi Mix 2, and iPhone X to name a few. From what we know so far, the OnePlus 5T is tipped to sport a larger 6-inch display like the LG V30 with 1080×2160 pixel resolution.OnePlus 5T specs and possible India price– The OnePlus 5 was launched in India starting at Rs 32,999, and one can expect the OnePlus 5T to be priced a few notches higher when it makes it to the country. To recall, the OnePlus 3T was brought to India for Rs 29,999, while the OnePlus 3 was launched at Rs 27,999.advertisement– As far as the specs are concerned, it is expected that the OnePlus 5T will sport the same Snapdragon 835 chipset as the OnePlus 5, which is the best Qualcomm chipset for Android smartphones in the market right now.– You can also expect the OnePlus 5T to be offered with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage similar to the OnePlus 5. An 8GB and 128GB configuration can also be expected.– From past rumours, the camera configuration for the OnePlus 5T is also expected to be similar to the OnePlus 5 with a dual rear camera setup that comprises of a 20-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel sensor. The front will likely see a 16-megapixel camera.– In terms of design, the OnePlus 5T will likely sport a metal body. However, as it is likely that the smartphone will feature an edge-to-edge display, we might see the fingerprint sensor to move to the back of the handset, and it’s still unclear where OnePlus will place the sensor.– There could also be a possibility of a facial recognition feature, although there has been no word on that as of now.Also Read: More companies are now selling premium phones online and you can thank OnePlus for thatEarlier this month, there were reports that the OnePlus 5 was out of stock in India, which led many to believe that the company has discontinues the phone to make way for the OnePlus 5T. However, the OnePlus 5 is in stock now, and it looks like it will stay that way, at least until the launch of the OnePlus 5T.last_img read more

Mohun Bagan coach Sanjoy Sen quits

first_img(Eds: Updating with inputs on Sens successor)Kolkata, Jan 2 (PTI) Mohun Bagans I-League-winning coach Sanjoy Sen today stepped down, taking full responsibility of his sides shocking loss to a 10-man Chennai City FC at their home ground.Already under pressure after a hat-trick of draws, Sens worst fears came true today when Mohun Bagan suffered I-League seasons first loss at the hands of the unfancied southern outfit who were reduced to 10 men in the 34th minute.Chennai City took a sixth minute lead through Frenchman Jean-Michel Joachim before Ansumana Kromah levelled it 1-1 from a penalty after Pradeep Mohanraj handed the ball inside the box.Veniamin Shumeyko then headed home the winner in the 71st minute to script the first big upset of I-League this season.”I cant say about the team, but it is the end of the road for me. It is the right time to take responsibility on my shoulders and move away from the club,” Sen said at the post- match press conference.”This is the first home match I lost. I tried a lot, I do not have the mentality to continue after this loss and three home draws where we could not come back. I cant deny that,” Sen said at Mohun Bagan tent.Having kicked off their campaign in style, Mohun Bagan beat arch rivals East Bengal 1-0 in the Kolkata derby but their title aspirations have dwindled. They are now at fifth place in the league table with 10 points from seven matches.advertisementTerming this a personal decision, Sen said: “Nobody sacked me, this is a personal decision. I should not continue as the supporters also have emotions attached with the club and I just cannot keep on making the fans unhappy. Im not fit to continue.”Before I was sacked, I think I have taken the right decision. As Gerard Houllier said you are no coach unless you are sacked?,” he said.This was the second match in a row that Mohun Bagan played at their home venue, as I-League came to Kolkata Maidan for the first time in history.But the first resulted in a draw — against a 10-man Indian Arrows, the developmental side of AIFF — and the fans had put pressure, shouting go back Sanjoy Sen.”I had decided beforehand that I will step down if we lose today. I have taken the wise decision. Thank you everyone,” the 57-year-old signed off.Sen was appointed the chief coach for the Mariners in December 2014 after the club parted ways with technical director Subhas Bhowmick and was instrumental in their I- League triumph in the 2014-15.He had previously been in-charge of Kolkata clubs like Mohammedan Sporting and United Sports Club and enjoyed success mostly in Cup competitions.While United SC became runners-up in IFA Shield and Durand Cup under his tutelage, the Black and Whites won the Shield last season. Sen had also led Mohammedan to become the champions of the I-League second division a couple of seasons back.Amid speculation that former Bengaluru FC coach Ashley Westwood may be named Sens successor, Mohun Bagan senior official Debasish Dutta said a new coach would hopefully be announced by tomorrow afternoon.”He (Sen) came to me after the game and shared his decision. We will decide tonight and by tomorrow, we shall share the name of the new coach. There will be no practice tomorrow. The new coach will definitely be present when the team trains on Thursday. We will still have good relations with Sen,” Dutta said. PTI TAP PDS PDSlast_img read more
