Since OnePlus had introduced OnePlus 3T in November 2016 after debuting the OnePlus 3 in June in the same year, the rumor mill is speculating that the company would be introducing OnePlus 5T in the coming month. Yesterday, some snapshots of the alleged official listing of the OnePlus 5T had surfaced. Today, Android Authority has received a fresh image of the rumored OnePlus 5T.
The leaked image does not provide a full view of the OnePlus 5T, but it only shows a part of it. The very first thing that can be noticed in this new image is that the handset does not feature a front-mounted fingerprint scanner. All the OnePlus smartphones that have released so far have front-facing fingerprint reader below the display.
The absence of front-mounted fingerprint sensor in the image could be because the smartphone probably features a full screen design. Rumors have it that OnePlus 5T would be equipped with a 6-inch display that produces an aspect ratio of 18:9 along with a full HD+ resolution of 1,060 x 2,080 pixels. Except for the OnePlus X mid-range phone from 2015, all the other OnePlus phones have feature a 5.5-inch FHD display with 16:9 aspect ratio.
The image also shows that the side bezels of the rumored OnePlus 5T are very thin. The handset seems to be sporting aluminum frame and the bottom side of the phone seems to be equipped with an external speaker and a USB-C port. Apart from the new full screen design, the OP5T smartphone is expected to arrive with the same specs that are available on the OnePlus 5.
Hence, the OnePlus 5T is speculated to feature a Snapdragon 835 chipset. It is also expected to come in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM options and 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants. It is likely to carry the same dual camera sensors from OnePlus 5. Rumors also claim that it may feature a larger battery and may arrive without a 3.5mm audio jack.
OnePlus 5 is a budget-friendly flagship phone, but its design is not very appealing compared to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG V30, Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone X. Even though the rumor mill is talking about OnePlus 5T, the company is yet to confirm on its existence.
