A few hours ago, OnePlus co-founders, Pete Lau and Carl Pei took to Twitter to post camera samples from an unnamed phone. While it is a wild guess, we want to believe they were taken by the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T was seen on AnTuTu and the benchmark site reveals that it will have two 20MP rear cameras. That is an upgrade from the 16MP + 20MP combo on the OnePlus 5. So it wouldn’t be unusual that we are getting early camera samples.
Although OnePlus has not confirmed itself that it will launch a successor to the OnePlus 5, a number of leaks and recent happenings have shown that a successor currently called the OnePlus 5T is in the pipeline.

Earlier this month, the OnePlus 5 went out of stock in nearly all markets except for India and China. While some have said it is just a supply issue, OnePlus itself has failed to provide an explanation. And to be honest, we are not surprised.
If there is a successor coming, it will make no sense to keep selling the current model and then launch the new one if you plan to sell it at the same price as the current one or for even a slightly higher price. Last year, when OnePlus announced the OnePlus 3T, it stopped production of the OnePlus 3. That is most likely the same thing happening now.
The OnePlus 5T will not only come with upgraded cameras but also an 18:9 display, Android Oreo, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It will also have its fingerprint scanner at the back due to the smaller front bezels.
