OnePlus has built a name for itself by releasing Android phones that offer a high bang-for-buck, and in the process has attracted a modest following. Sacrifices sometimes have to be made to maintain a lower price than the competition, though one unexpected compromise was that the company's OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T phones debuted without the ability to stream HD video from a handful of services, including Netflix. OnePlus is rectifying the situation with an update, though it's not something owners can download on their own. The issue at hand is a digital rights management (DRM) one, and specifically the lack of either phone's ability to reach the L1 security level in Google's Widevine DRM. That's... Read more...
OnePlus likes to use the tagline "Never Settle," but OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners are having to settle for SD video feeds from certain streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Google Play Movies. The limitation boils down to Digital Rights Management (DRM)—as with previous OnePlus devices, both the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T do not support the necessary DRM level to fetch HD feeds from various sources. Netflix and many other streaming services require support for Widevine Level 1 DRM, in which all content processing, cryptography, and control is performed in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). In contrast, Level 3 does not have the same requirement and is a less secure... Read more...
After months of leaks and teasing, the OnePlus 5T has finally been officially announced. If you've been following our reporting, none of the specs for the smartphone should come as a surprise, but we'll still give you a rundown of what you'll find inside. The smartphone is of course powered by Qualcomm's potent Snapdragon 835 SoC, which can be paired with either 6GB of RAM in the base configuration or a massive 8GB of RAM. Likewise, base systems get 64GB of internal storage, while upgraded models double that with 128GB. There is no microSD expansion, so choose wisely. On the display front, the OnePlus 5T goes with a 6-inch OLED panel that is manufactured by Samsung (which is good news for those... Read more...
OnePlus is launch a new flagship handset, and you can watch it live, if you want to. The OnePlus 5T will get an official unveiling at 8 AM Pacific / 11 PM Eastern, which is only about an hour from now (at the time of this writing). And in addition to a regular OnePlus 5T device, there have been rumors of a Star Wars Edition, which if true could also be unveiled today during the livestream. Launching a Star Wars Edition at this point in time makes a bit of sense, given that there's a new Stars Wars movie headed to the silver screen next month. And in addition to Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Episode VIII, if you are keeping count), Electronic Arts just released Star Wars: Battlefront II. Even NVIDIA... Read more...
If you're a big fan of OnePlus' family of Android smartphones, you'll be happy to know that the wait for the company's newest flagship won't be much longer. Some people are still trying to grapple with the fact that the OnePlus 5 was just released back in July, but nonetheless, its follow-up OnePlus 5T will bow on November 16th. As previously reported, the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled in New York, and will be open not only the press (as is typically the case with new product unveils), but also the public. The caveat here is that non-press attendees will have to purchase a $40 ticket to get in to the event. If you're a OnePlus fan that doesn't want to hand over $40, or simply can't make it to New...

If seems as though every few weeks we receive word of a new flagship smartphone that is about to be released. One such device that has garnered quite a bit of attention recently is the OnePlus 5T. The OnePlus 5 was just revealed back in late July, so it's quite surprising that we're already seeing a successor. Company founder Pete Lau took to the OnePlus Forums to talk a bit about the upcoming OnePlus 5T, and sought to comfort users that at least one feature -- which is on endangered species list -- will remain with this flagship. Of course, we're talking about the 3.5mm headphone jack, which is featured prominently in a picture of the device that was included in the forum post. Lau makes the... Read more...
We've seen quite a few leaks surrounding the alleged OnePlus 5T over the past month, but the most credible leak to date has just made its way to Twitter. Noted leaker Evan Blass posted an render of what he claims to be the top half of the OnePlus 5T, and is confirms what we've previously been told: the device will feature thin bezels on the sides and minimal bezels at the top and bottom of the display. There's not much else to glean from the solitary image other than a front-facing camera, front-mounted sensors, a slit for the earpiece speaker and a side button. There also appears to be just a hint of a curve to the corners of the display, instead of breaking at 90-degree angles. This latest... Read more...
There is some speculation that OnePlus will release a new handset in the next couple of months, potentially a OnePlus 5T or even a OnePlus 6. Fueling that speculation is a purportedly leaked press rendering of a the former, which is making the rounds on the web. The render shows a handset with an all-screen front side, rounded corners, and barely any bezel to speak of.The render was uploaded to /Leaks by user Phoneleaks, who has a reported accuracy rating of 66 percent. In this instance, we are skeptical of its legitimacy, as are a few of the people who commented on the post.Image Source: SlashLeaks"Obvious fake," one user writes, adding that he hopes that what will eventually be the OnePlus...

OnePlus has completely sold out of its Oneplus 5 handsets. A visit to the company's website shows that the OnePlus 5 is "out of stock," including both the model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage ($479), and the more expensive SKU with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage ($539). There is no mention of when or even if more stock will be available, leading some to believe that a OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6 is right around the corner.The OnePlus 5 has only been out for a few months, having launched earlier this year in June. Supply has often been an issue with OnePlus and its handsets, though usually the shortage of hardware is when a new device is first released. In this case, it is possible that OnePlus... Read more...
