OnePlus 5T Specifications and Features
Plenty of leaks and unboxing shots have revealed that the OnePlus 5T would be the company’s first smartphone with full screen design. Leaked information has revealed that the OnePlus 5T would be coming with a 6-inch Optic-AMOLED display that will offer an aspect ratio of 18:9. Like the OnePlus 5’s display, the screen of the OnePlus 5T will be supporting DCI-P3 and sRGB color gamut. It is expected to produce Full HD+ resolution of 2060 x 1080 pixels and it is likely to deliver a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5 percent.
Since the display will be using up the major space of the front panel, the fingerprint reader is speculated to be placed on the back panel of the OnePlus 5T. Apart from the inclusion of an elongated display and repositioning of the fingerprint reader, the OnePlus 5T is expected to carry the same specs and features that the company had made available on the OnePlus 5.
The Snapdragon 835 chipset will be lying under the hood of the OP5T. The upcoming flagship is also expected to arrive with a 3,300mAh battery. The 64 GB and 128 GB storage models of the OnePlus 5T are speculated to respectively feature 6 GB and 8 GB of RAM.
OnePlus 5 has a dual camera system that features a 16-megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor and a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 sensor and it has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 selfie camera. Even though the OnePlus 5T is likely to feature the same set of cameras, the Chinese firm may bring sort of improvements for shooting richer photos than the OnePlus 5. It may arrive with some enhancements for shooting better photos in low-light conditions.
