Carl Pei, OnePlus’ CEO, has just shared a new photo sample via his official Twitter page, and along with it, he shared a really interesting caption. If you take a look at the provided image down below, you’ll be able to see the photo sample in question, though keep in mind that this image has been cropped. This seems to be an image of a disco ball, or something of the sort, and along with it, Carl Pei said the following: “Cool photo, must have come from a great camera”, while he also attached a smiley face at the end of that sentence.
Having said that, it seems like the company’s CEO is teasing the arrival of the OnePlus 5T by releasing this image, and the arrival of the company’s new flagship seems to be in the cards for November. Various reports suggested that the device will arrive next month, and even Evan Blass said it yesterday. It is quite possible that OnePlus will boost the camera performance of the OnePlus 5T, compared to the OnePlus 5, though it’s unknown whether the company plans to include a new set of lenses on the back, or will the use the existing setup which was included in the OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5T, if rumors and leaks are to be believed, will sport really thin bezels, and it will resemble the Vivo X20 which was announced last month, and also the upcoming OPPO R11s handset. The device’s display will sport rounded corners, and the phone itself will be made out of metal. You will be able to find a dual camera setup on the back of the OnePlus 5T, and a fingerprint scanner will also be included on the back of the phone this time around, not below its display.
The OnePlus 5T is also rumored to sport a 6-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) AMOLED display, which means it will be considerably larger than the panel the company used on the OnePlus 5, though it will be narrower, with a different aspect ratio (18:9), and all that, in combination with thin bezels, should result in a relatively similar footprint of the OnePlus 5T (compared to the OnePlus 5). The OnePlus 5T will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, while it will arrive in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, probably. The device will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll get a brand new version of OxygenOS.
