Based on earlier reports, the OnePlus 5T is also believed to sport a big 6-inch Optic AMOLED screen in 18:9 aspect ratio format with FHD+ resolution. Just like other smartphones with ultra-wide screens, the OnePlus 5T is reported to sport a fingerprint scanner on the back that will allow the phone to accommodate a big screen on the front with small bezels.
The smartphone’s benchmark report on Antutu hints at the specification of the upcoming device. According to the benchmark report, the OnePlus 5T might not see major changes under the hood and is reported to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. However, the report also hints that the new phone would sport an upgraded dual camera set-up with 20-megapixel lenses powering both the sensors this time, instead of the 20+16 MP setup that was there in OnePlus 5. Also, with a 6-inch screen in 18:9 aspect ratio, the resolution will take a bump to FHD+ and the phone will house a bigger battery than its predecessor.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau on October 25 tweeted an image of the soon-to-be launched OnePlus 5T. Before the launch of OnePlus 5 also, the company’s CEO used the same trick to highlight the imaging prowess of the smartphone’s camera.
The upcoming smartphone is believed to carry a $549 price tag, according to third-party e-store Oppomart. The store listed OnePlus 5T on its portal and also put it on pre-orders with shipping date marked as end of November.
