We have been hearing a lot about OnePlus’ upcoming smartphone over the past few days. Speculations are rife with some reports suggesting that the supposed OnePlus 5T will flaunt an 18:9 display this time. Further leaked renders showed off the fingerprint sensor to have been shifted to the rear panel instead of putting it on the home button. Now a distinct press render has just emerged, courtesy to the popular mobile leaker Evan Blass who shared the photo via his Twitter handle.
The picture that Blass tweeted shows the top of the smartphone with thick bezels and cutout for the front-facing camera and sensors. It also reveals thin bezels on both sides of the front panel. If you take a closer look you can see the SIM slot and power button on the right edge of the device. The phone also appears have a 2.5D curved glass and metal chassis.

The upcoming OnePlus 5T is tipped to arrive this fall, with reports indicating to a November 16 launch. Further, it is also rumoured to follow a quite similar design to the Oppo R11s that is yet to be unveiled. The unannounced OnePlus 5T is said to be a slightly upgraded model compared to the current flagship OnePlus 5. According to a report from GizChina, the handset will feature Snapdragon 835 chipset, 8GB RAM, Adreno 540 GPU for graphics, and a 20MP camera sensor both on front and rear side. The OnePlus 5T is tipped to pack a 6-inch full HD+ (1080×2160 pixel resolution) 18:9 display. The phone is also expected to carry an improved imaging sensor having 16MP+20MP dual rear cameras.
Blass earlier claimed that the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled sometime in November, post-November 20. However, a promotional material that recently surfaced online points out that smartphone might be launched on November 16 and it will be an Amazon exclusive. While leaks are pouting in abundance, we believe more details will be outed ahead of its official announcement in the coming weeks.
