OnePlus 5T With Slim Bezels Leaked In Images Again
The OnePlus 5T has been leaked again on the Chinese social networking site, Weibo. There have been plenty of leaks and “credible sources” claiming that the OnePlus 5T will indeed be launched in November with a new design language. Unlike the incremental upgrade from the OnePlus 3 to 3T in 2016, this year’s OnePlus 5T might see a huge departure from the design language that OnePlus devices have followed. Releasing the OnePlus 5T will solidify OnePlus’ launch pattern that OnePlus is trying to set in the market, much like what the company did with the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
The leak is in line with some of the previous renders and leaks. The phone in the image has a tall display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The bezels are considerably thinner than the OnePlus 5. For the OnePlus 5T the fingerprint sensor is moved from the home button, as there is expected to be no home button, to a rear placed location above the OnePlus logo. The dual cameras are placed identically and the slate grey colour is the same found on the OnePlus 5.
When the OnePlus 5 was launched, one of the major criticisms it faced were the thick bezels around the display, especially after it was dubbed as the “flagship killer.” Launch of the OnePlus 5T will add the company to the list of Modern 2017 smartphone makers with a low bezel / bezel less design
There is no official word from the company and the social media handles of OnePlus have not dropped any hints about an event or a launch of a new phone. These leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt until there is an official announcement from the company.
