OnePlus 5T To Release In November 2017; 6 Inch Edge-to-Edge Display
The OnePlus 5T is expected to be an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 5.
Multiple rumours were doing rounds of the internet over OnePlus getting ready with OnePlus 6, and skipping the OnePlus 5T. Quite recently, a new report has arrived online, which hints that OnePlus is reportedly planning to release the OnePlus 5T in November of this year.
The OnePlus 5 is already out of stock in several markets around the world, which hints at an imminent launch of a newer model. The source has revealed, that the company will release OnePlus 5T in November 2017, like it did the OnePlus 3 back in 2016, releasing OnePlus 3T five months after OnePlus 3.
One Plus 5T: New Features
Only a few details are available at this point in time. One major change is going to be the display. The screen on the OnePlus 5T will be a 6″ display with a 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. This will give the OnePlus 5T’s display, an 18:9 aspect ratio. Interestingly, the OnePlus 5 is already up-to-date with a set of powerful specs on board. So the OnePlus 5T might see an upgraded display for a better visual experience and an incremental bump in processor.
The OnePlus 5 currently ships with dual cameras at the back. It was launched in the country back in June with two variants. It has an 16MP+20MP dual camera setup at the back and a 16 MP shooter on the front.
Upgrade From OnePlus 5 To OnePlus 5T
In the case of the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus only changed the hardware by replacing the Snapdragon 820 on the OnePlus 3 with a slightly faster Snapdragon 821 on 3T and an upgraded camera. Though the display, camera and the processor might be the only changes between OnePlus 5 and 5T, the aspect ratio is going to be a major change. The 5T will sport a 6″ full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. It will be something very similar to the likes of LG V30, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and the newly launched Google Pixel 2 XL which sport minimal bezels.
OnePlus 5T Design
The OnePlus 5T image shared in this report, shows a smartphone with very thin bezels around the corners. The display seems to have curved edges on the sides, which makes it look very similar to the Galaxy S8, which sports a similar 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The recently leaked Oppo F5 also sports a similar design. It is worth noting here that Oppo and OnePlus are part of the same company, BK Electronics.
OnePlus 5 Is Out Of Stock
Some variants of the OnePlus 5 are already out of stock in several countries which includes the likes of UK, with no signs of fresh stock being available anytime soon. This strongly indicates that OnePlus is indeed looking to launch the new model quite soon.
