Separately, alleged hands-on photos of the device have emerged on Chinese micro-blogging site, Weibo. The leaked images corroborate with previous reports. It shows off the OnePlus 5T featuring minimal bezel 18:9 display with slightly thick bezels on top and bottom. There’s slight cut out at the top housing front-facing camera and microphone. The home button is missing from the front panel. Another image on Weibo reveals the back panel of the supposed OnePlus 5T. This time around, the upcoming OnePlus handset could have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. The image shows a square-shaped fingerprint scanner placed at the centre above the OnePlus logo.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei and Pete Lau have also teased camera samples of a smartphone (perhaps the OnePlus 5T) on Twitter. Carl’s tweet shows an image of a disco ball along with a caption “Cool photo, must have come from a great camera”. Pete Lau joining the teaser swing shared a photo with the tweet reading, “Impressive photo. Must be a great camera”.
