OnePlus is apparently ready to launch its new flagship smartphone. According to a report, the OnePlus 5T will get launched as early as next month. Recently a lot of rumours regarding the OnePlus potentially skipping the OnePlus 5T in favour of the OnePlus 6 have been doing the rounds. Now, according to a report in GizmoChina, the OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 5 in November this year. The report says that the OnePlus 5T will be drastically different from the OnePlus 5, which is the latest flagship mobile from the Chinese manufacturer.
According to the GizmoChinea report, the OnePlus 5T will have a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080. The company has trimmed down the OnePlus 5T’s bezels to help keep it relatively compact without increasing the footprint of the device. GizmoChina has also posted a render which shows the OnePlus 5T with really thin bezels. Popular flagship smartphones like Apple iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and S8, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 XL, and Micromax Canvas Infinity all have opted for a bezel-less design. So it isn’t shocking to see OnePlus following the current bezel-less trend with the upcoming OnePlus 5T.
The OnePlus 5 had recently gone out-of-stock in the US. This lead the market to speculate that a new phone is on the cards. In June 2016, OnePlus 3 was launched with a Snapdragon 820 processor. However, in the same year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 3T, and the key change was a new Snapdragon 821 processor.
However, it is hard to see why OnePlus will bring a new device when the new processor Snapdragon 836 has not yet launched. If the company’s history is any indication, OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6 will launch sometime next year.
