OnePlus is much rumoured to launch another smartphone this year, the OnePlus 5T, which is believed to be the flagship OnePlus 5's mid-cycle upgrade. The company has started teasing the handset on social media. Additionally, we might have been given the first glimpse of the OnePlus 5T in a leaked render.
Prolific phone tipster Evan Blass has shared an image claimed to show the top front panel of the upcoming OnePlus 5T. "Top-half of OnePlus 5T," Blass said in a tweet showing the handset. The OnePlus 5T is said to be the Chinese company's first all-screen smartphone and was reportedly up for pre-orders in China ahead of launch.
The smartphone is said to sport a 6-inch screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. Separately, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei has tweeted out a picture teasing portrait mode from the upcoming OnePlus 5T. The shared image from the handset seemingly confirms that the launch is imminent.
The leaked retailer listing from last week claimed some of the specifications including 6-inch Quad HD screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and it is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at up to 2.45GHz. It is likely to come in 6GB and 8GB RAM options with 64GB and 128GB storage respectively. On the camera front, the handset is said to sport a 20-megapixel rear camera coupled with another 16-megapixel sensor, making it a dual camera setup at the back. It is also said to have a 16-megapixel front camera. These specifications all match with OnePlus 5, however, differences include a larger 3450mAh battery and a larger 6-inch display, while with some reports claiming a full-HD+ resolution of 1080x2160 pixels. It is also thicker than the OnePlus 5, weighing in at 164 grams. The thickness is said to be identical at 7.25mm, but the phone will be slightly wider and taller at 157x75.4mm. The handset is rumoured to support global 4G LTE bands and support 34 network bands.
The alleged OnePlus 5T recently made an appearance at the AnTuTu benchmark suggesting the OnePlus A5010 model name, and listing similar specifications apart from a 20-megapixel front camera, and a boost of the rear camera.
