Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus launched their flagship OnePlus 5T last month. Till now the smartphone was only available in Midnight Black and Lava Red. Earlier this month, OnePlus launched a new Star Wars limited OnePlus 5T edition along with a black and white colour design, where the front is black, while the back is white.
Today we spotted images of a new OnePlus 5T device with a different colour than the previously mentioned colour variants, where the front contains white bezels. The images do not reveal the rear, but it looks like it will all be soft gold. The buttons are also white while the middle layer sports a shiny metallic colour.
The Soft gold colour is not new for OnePlus customers. The company has previously launched a Soft Gold version for the OnePlus 5/ 3T. The device had similar white bezels with a shiny metallic look on the edges while sporting a soft gold colour in the back.
Many OnePlus 5T users have demanded a White colour variant. Though technically the Star Wars Edition was white it still contained black bezels. This will be the first variant to sport white front bezels.
The specs of this new variant will be likely to remain the same though it is not confirmed whether it will be available in both 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variant. The Star Wars edition was only available in 8 GB RAM variant. The device will be sporting 6.01-inch full HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) Full Optic AMOLED with an 18:9 aspect ratio, 401ppi pixel density, and protected by 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. As for the other specs, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.45 GHz along with Adreno 540 GPU coupled with 6 GB or 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. Similarly, there are two variants of internal storage; 64 GB and 128 GB.
There is a dual (16 MP +20 MP ) rear camera setup on the rear and a 16 MP camera on the front. The cameras come with improved portrait mode, low-light photography, and video stabilisation because of f/1.7 aperture and 27.22 mm focal length which enables better low light photos. There is also face unlocking features. There is a fingerprint sensor on the rear. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth v5.0 with aptX and aptX HD, dual-band (2.4GHz, 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11ac with MIMO 2×2, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C (v2.0) port. Sensors on board the OnePlus 5T include an ambient light sensor, accelerometer, digital compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope, and an RGB sensor.
As for the price, we expect it to come with a price tag similar to the regular variants. The 6 GB RAM variant is currently priced at Rs 32,999 while the 8 GB RAM costs Rs 37,999.
