Several rumours across the web say that OnePlus is working on the OnePlus 5T– the successor to the OnePlus 5. As expected with an upcoming smartphone, details and renders of the OnePlus 5T are already making rounds on the internet, but there’s no concrete evidence until now about the possible OnePlus 5T existence.
However, we now got one evidence (if it’s legitimate) about the OnePlus 5T existence. Earlier today, a few images of the OnePlus website with OnePlus 5T listing were posted on Chinese website-news.mydrivers, and they seem to be legit. As rumoured up until now, the OnePlus 5T will feature an 18:9 display, much like several other 2017 flagship smartphones.
And the images clearly show the OnePlus 5T with zero bezels on sides and minimal bezels on top and bottom. This makes complete sense, and guess what, these images of the OnePlus 5T resembles the official renders of the Oppo R11S smartphone, which the Chinese company going to launch on November 2 in China.
So, the Oppo R11S is a successor to the Oppo R11, which was unveiled in June 2017. OnePlus was criticised heavily after the launch of OnePlus 5 because the device is a copy of the Oppo R11, barring some changes such as the alert slider, LED module, and camera bump. In fact, Oppo is the parent company of OnePlus, and in India, all the OnePlus devices ship from Oppo manufacturing plant in Noida.
And now, the OnePlus 5T is rumoured to be a lookalike of the Oppo R11S, again barring some changes such as the alert slider, etc. This time around OnePlus is rumoured to be minimising the differences between the Oppo R11S and OnePlus 5T.
The major difference between the Oppo R11 and Oppo R11S could be the dual camera setup on the front, and guess what, OnePlus is also looking to add dual selfie camera setup on the OnePlus 5T. As you can see clearly, there’s no fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone, which is now expected to be present at the back. If it happens, the OnePlus 5T will be the first OnePlus smartphone to sport a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Overall, the OnePlus 5T, for now, will feature a 6-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen, dual selfie camera, and there might be a bigger battery as well. All said, OnePlus is yet to confirm the existence of the OnePlus 5T, but the unavailability of the OnePlus 5 in several countries is an indirect hint from the company about the OnePlus 5T arrival.
