In the tweet, Car Pei shares a portrait mode image from a OnePlus phone. He doesn’t specify the phone the image is taken from. The OnePlus 5, which was launched in June also has a dual-camera setup at the back which allows for portrait mode photos. However, with the curiosity around the OnPlus 5T, Carl Pei could be hinting towards the updated cameras on the OnePlus 5T.
Just like the OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5T is expected to be an incremental update rather than a drastic new upgrade in terms of hardware. The 5T is expected to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset as it is the current flagship chipset. The dual cameras at the back are also expected to be the same as found on the OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5T will have a 6 inch AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 x resolution which translates to an 18:9 aspect ratio.
The smartphone is expected to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with OnePlus’ Oxygen OS on top. The 2017 flagship will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset with a combination of either 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage or a whopping 8GB RAM and 128 of storage which can not be expanded. The OnePlus 5T is also expected feature dual cameras on the back, one of the main cameras is a 20 MP sensor with an f/2.6 aperture, while the other is a 16 MP camera with an aperture of F/1.7 . The secondary telephoto lens is used for 2X lossless optical zoom and a ‘portrait mode’ for blurred background images.
Recent renders of the OPPO R11s also look very similar to those of the OnePlus 5T. It is possible that just like thge OPPO R11 and OnePlus 5, the R11s and 5T could share a very similar design.
