Talking about the aspects, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had earlier confirmed that the smartphone will retain the 3.5mm audio jack. Pete had further hinted about the pricing of the OnePlus 5T smartphone. When asked on Weibo if 4000RMB would be enough for the new OnePlus handset, he simply clinked in with “Enough”. This implies that the smartphone might not be that expensive than the current flagship OnePlus 5.
For what we have known so far (based on leaks & rumours of course), the OnePlus 5T might have a minimal bezel display. The phone is expected to feature a 6-inch full HD+ AMOLED screen, pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. It is said to come in two storage variants- 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 8GB RAM/128GB native storage. This time around, the fingerprint sensor is said to be removed from the front panel and place it on the rear side. The front camera might get bumped up this time as compared to the one in the OnePlus 5.
