OnePlus launched its last smartphone this year in June. While previous rumour suggested the next smartphone of the company will be the OnePlus 6, a new report says it might not be true. OnePlus may be geared up for another launch this year which is a tweaked and redesigned version of its latest flagship OnePlus 5. Dubbed as the OnePlus 5T, the device will now be apt for competing against the likes of iPhone X, Google Pixel 2, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Galaxy Note 8.
A new photo has been released on the website Slashleaks which claims to be the new OnePlus 5T. However, this is not the first time that pictures of OnePlus 5T have been released. A new render was released this week which looked a lot like the render of the Oppo F5 renders. Interestingly the two devices do not match. The cameras do not match. The newly released render has a single cam on the front while the previous one had two. The display also doesn’t match as the new one screen looks wider and “OnePlus” like. The two buttons on the left side of the device, in which one of them is a volume rocker are differently spaced in both the renders. The new render has more space and comfort. The screen is supposed to be 6-inch with 18.9 aspect ratio from its looks. The new end-to-end screen with minimum bezels looks great too.
According to the previously leaked specs, the OnePlus 5T’s screen is supposed to be 6-inch with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels which is greater than that of OnePlus 5’s resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Taking a cue from OnePlus 3T the phone should cost more, have a better processor and front-facing camera. OnePlus 5 comes with Snapdragon 835, but according to reports, Qualcomm has no plans to release Snapdragon 836 or any other successor. But honestly, I think the 835 is good enough to complain. The battery could be improved though. The OnePlus 5’s 3,300mAh battery has plenty of room for upgradation. We could also get a new version of the polished OxygenOS.
OnePlus 5 was launched with two variants: the 6GB RAM for Rs 32,999 and the 8GB of RAM for Rs 37,999. Considering this price may be above Rs 40,000 for the OnePlus 5T. According to the rumours, the OnePlus 5T is to be released this year somewhere around November.
