OnePlus posted an image of its current and upcoming flagships stacked together on Twitter. As evident, the picture is of the back side of the OnePlus 5 which covers the entire silhouettes of the OnePlus 5T. The company posted the teaser image on the social networking site with a caption “5Tacked. #OnePlus5 #OnePlus5T”. And, once again OnePlus confirms the name of the smartphone which it plans to reveal in the mid-November.
Judging by the teaser picture, one can clearly point out that the OnePlus 5T will have a sightly bigger body in comparison to the existing OnePlus 5. If that’s the case, then probably the upcoming phone will likely to get a taller display. In fact, rumours claim that the phone will feature a large 6-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2150 and 18:9 aspect ratio.
Apparently, OnePlus 5T might end up looking like Oppo’s recently launched R11S, which was launched earlier this week. As Phandroid pointed out, the leaked image of the upcoming OnePlus 5T resembles a lot like the Oppo made phone. The image shows the device with a large display and a fingerprint scanner on the back (as opposed to the front, as seen on previous OnePlus devices).
OnePlus 5T has recently been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench, revealing the phone’s specifications in advance. Going by the listing, at least, its specifications won’t be different from what you get on the OnePlus 5. It will likely to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, either 6GB or 8GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage, and a microSD card slot for expanding the internal memory.
Surprisingly, the phone will likely to ship running Google’s Android Nougat and not the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. It won’t be a stock version, though. OnePlus phones run OxygenOS, a custom version of Android. The listing reveals the phone will get a 16MP single shooter on the back, but it seems that the information might not be correct. Considering the OnePlus 5 has a dual-camera setup on the rear, the new phone will also feature the same setup. The listing also reveals a 20MP selfie shooter in the front, up from a 16MP on the OnePlus. Battery is likely to get improved on the OnePlus 5T. The company promises the headphone jack will be present on the device, unlike the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL.
