It’s that time of the year again. OnePlus is getting ready to release the T version of the OnePlus 5 in a couple of weeks. While we’re not sure how much the specs will change, from a recent Weibo leak we’ve got a pretty good idea about the smartphone’s final look and what changes have been made, screen-wise #mobilemagic
Rumors are pointing to a device keen on following current flagship trends, while keeping its identity. So, we’ll naturally have a smartphone with slim bezels, to the point where they have to replace the fingerprint scanner/ home button. It’s very likely that this will shift to the rear, in the upper center above the brand logo. Otherwise, the rest of the back of the device will remain relatively identical to the OnePlus 5, with a similar dual camera setup. In terms of camera software, we’re bound to get most of the features present in OnePlus 5 – including the HDR technology from FotoNation – as well as new ones.
The display is supposed to be larger than the one present on the OnePlus 5. The newest flagship should sport a 6-inch screen with a 2160 x 1080 resolution and the 18:9 aspect ratio which has become a daily occurrence for this year’s premium smartphones, after LG introduced it with G6. As for the body, OnePlus has not caved and is sticking with flat edges.
Obviously, OnePlus 5T will come in matte black, but you’re going to have several color options if the past is any indication. The alert slider seems to have made a comeback and could be found on the phone’s left side.
