OnePlus 5T Specifications Leaked Before Imminent Launch
The OnePlus 5T will be launched some time in November and after teasing ‘something’ for weeks, OnePlus has finally opened up about its upcoming flagship phone. Before the launch, however, there are customary leaks to look at, and this one comes from a listing on GFXBench.
Contrary to prior leaked listings, this one suggests that the OnePlus 5T will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and Android 8.0 Oreo. As expected, the OnePlus 5T is expected to have a 6-inch AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 px resolution. This is a heavily speculated feature and the main upgrade over the OnePlus 5 which has 5.5 inch AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 px resolution. OnePlus, in a previous tweet showed off the similar footprint of the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T while increasing the screens size of the OnePlus 5T by 0.5-inch.
The listing reveals that the smartphone will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, an octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz and Adreno 540 GPU, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage. These specifications are the same as the OnePlus 5 and is expected to be this way as the Snapdragon 835 is the best chip available right now. The OnePlus 3T was an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 3 because there was a faster chip available ion the market.
The next piece of information is interesting. According to the listing, the OnePlus 5T is expected to have a 20MP front-facing camera as opposed to a 16MP camera found on the OnePlus 5. The back cameras are expected to be the same 16MP + 20MP (telephoto lens) as the OnePlus 5 with improved portrait mode capabilities.
