Now we have Evan Blass getting involved with OnePlus 5T leaks. The mobile industry insider shared an image showing most of the phone’s front. While it doesn’t necessarily show us anything new, the leaked image of the OnePlus 5T confirms one major feature.
OnePlus will be switching over from 16:9 to 18:9 aspect ratio for the display. The image provided by Blass shows a device with a very thin top bezel, which means the bottom bezel should be the same as well. With the OnePlus 5T, the company wants to incorporate one of the most popular qualities for flagships. That means OnePlus is also increasing screen resolution. The OnePlus 5T should ship with a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) Optic AMOLED display.
Other rumored specifications for the OnePlus 5T include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, 20MP and 16MP rear cameras, and a rear-based fingerprint scanner. Most of the things from the OnePlus 5 released earlier this year will be brought over to the upgraded model. OnePlus is focusing on the display for the OnePlus 5T. So the major changes will be the fingerprint scanner’s relocation and the switch to on-screen navigation buttons.
If you need to get a better idea of what the phone will look like and the internal components, just check out the Oppo F5. OnePlus and Oppo are two brands owned by BBK Electronics. The F5 launched last week, and it’ll be the same body used for the OnePlus 5T.
The expected launch date for the OnePlus 5T is Thursday, November 16. A promotional page on Amazon in India leaked, and it revealed that as the day when OnePlus will launch its second 2017 flagship. It seems accurate because OnePlus needs to launch the OnePlus 5T relatively soon to score some holiday sales before the end of the year.
