It has become more or less a trend for the OnePlus phones to have their details released prior to the actual launch. And the trend continues in the case of the OnePlus 5T as well. So much so, that a merchant website has even uploaded very specific details about the phone. However, it is to be noted that none of these details are very authentic, considering that they have not been disclosed or confirmed by the company itself. It is best to take this information with a grain of salt. In this article, we will make note of the concrete information, and see what we are expecting and hoping will be included in the phone.
Price and release date
The chief of the OnePlus company, Pete Lau, recently almost resolved some substantial queries regarding the launch of the OnePlus 5T, including its screen and pricing. The newest flagship phone from OnePlus is apparently going to be priced at less than 4000 Yuan. Now that does not tell us exactly what the price will be, and there will be some fluctuations depending on where you are buying the phone, but we can rest assured that the price will not be much higher than the price of the OnePlus 5, $479 USD. Yet another mystery was solved by the company itself when it announced in a tweet that the phone will be launched on November 16, 2017, and will become available for the general public on 21st November 2017.
Processor and performance
The OnePlus 5T will probably come equipped with a Snapdragon 835 chipset and 6 GB of RAM, considering that they together have made the fastest phones we have seen in 2017 so far. Newer upgrades on the Snapdragon are currently being worked on by Qualcomm, but we are not likely to see them implemented in phones at least before 2018. This way, performance of the 5T is certainly going to be great; and you can be certain that he phone will run smoothly even with multiple apps running in the background and more than one tab open at the same time. It’s Android Nougat at work again, of course.
Screen and camera
Some leaks suggest that the OnePlus 5T will come with 6 inch display, boasting 16:8 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 resolution. Some photos show extremely thin bezels on the top and bottom of the display, and a fingerprint sensor at the back. This, if true, might spell quite a bit of trouble for the product; a fingerprint sensor is always more welcome in the front where it is easily reachable. There are rumors of two 20 MP cameras working together, but all that the people at OnePlus have hinted at is that the cameras will come with an excellent portrait mode.
There are a lot of rumors flying about regarding the OnePlus 5T, and we cannot wait to unwrap a package and actually see how the phone measures up. If it is anything like the OnePlus 5, then we can rest assured that great things are in store for this phone as well.
