OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 5T is coming and it will be retaining the 3.5mm audio jack. The company has also released a render of the phone to show the existence of the 3.5mm headphone slot. Earlier year today, eSports player Alessandro Palmarini uploaded an image of a person holding a mysterious OnePlus phone. The alleged phone seems to be the upcoming OnePlus 5T.
Most of the leaked photos of the OnePlus 5T that have appeared in the past month have been found to be fake. Android Authority and well-known tipster Evan Blass have revealed some renders of the OnePlus 5T that can be trusted.
The above photo was snapped during the ongoing Paris Game Week. The Vainglory eSports team of Palmarini is sponsored by OnePlus which indicates that the image is probably featuring the OnePlus 5T phone. At the ongoing gaming event, various OnePlus 5 tethered units can be found at OnePlus booth. There is one mysterious phone with slim bezels around the display among them that can be seen in the hands of the person in the above image. Also, the screen appears to slightly curved at the edges. The phone does not seem to feature front-mounted fingerprint scanner as the screen occupies the major portion of the front panel. This could be the first real image of the OnePlus 5T.
Rumors have it that the dimensions of the OnePlus 5T could be same as that of OnePlus 5. However, OP56 is expected to house a larger screen. Hence, this could be the reason why one of the previous reports had revealed that the smartphone could be tagged as: “Larger screen. Same footprint.”
Blass has claimed that the OnePlus 5T would be unveiled after Nov. 20. The company seems to be prepping to launch the OP5T as the OnePlus 5 has already gone out of stock. As rumors have claimed, the OnePlus 5T may retain the internal specs of OnePlus 5, but may come with some improvements for its dual rear cameras and battery. Since the company has started teasing the OnePlus 5T openly, more features of the phone are expected to surface as the launch date nears.
