The Chinese OEM, OnePlus flagship killer, the OnePlus 5 was introduced in June this year. The smartphone didn’t even reach one-year milestone and reports now claim that the OnePlus 5 is currently out of stock in various markets including the US and Europe.
While OnePlus recently said that the company is all out of phone units, this has fueled up speculation of a new smartphone launching soon. Early this month, a supposed new OnePlus model named as the OnePlus 5T was spotted featuring thin bezels and a taller display. Now a new report has emerged along with renders of the alleged OnePlus 5T on the internet. The renders come courtesy of the Chinese micro-blogging site, Weibo revealing a couple of images.
The leaked renders show off the front and back panel of the device. One can see thinner bezels on both edges and a slight cut out at the top for sensors. The fingerprint sensor seems to have been removed from the front and now a square-shaped sensor placed at the back. The panel looks similar to the OnePlus 5 with antenna lines running along the curvature and dual camera sitting at the top left corner. The volume keys could be seen housed on the left side.
Rumour mill suggests that the supposed OnePlus 5T might likely bear a similar design language to the upcoming Oppo F5 smartphone.
Previous reports suggest that the alleged OnePlus 5T could sport a 6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device is said to have a full HD+ (1080×2160 pixel) AMOLED display. Further, it is tipped to pack 6GB and 8GB of RAM and flaunt dual rear camera. Reports speculate that the OnePlus 5T might ship with Google’s latest Android 8.0 Oreo, with a new OxygenOS skin on top. The supposed upcoming ‘flagship killer’ is expected to arrive sometime in November.
We suggest readers to take these leaks with a grain of salt given that OnePlus has not yet shared any word on this front.
