OnePlus 5T seems to be the next smartphone from the Chinese company and it looks promising. An image of the OnePlus 5T smartphone has leaked online and it shows a bezel-less display, 18:9 aspect ratio, and no Home button on the front. The leak has come from the website SlashLeaks, and it should be noted that there is no official confirmation from the company. However, there were many rumours ahead of the launch of the last OnePlus 5 mobile, and many of them had turned out to be true. Earlier, reports had said that the OnePlus 5 are already out of stock in major markets like the US and UK, giving rise to speculations that the next phone could get announced in November this year.
OnePlus is already a hugely popular smartphone series apart from being a trusted brand. In India, it is at the top of premium smartphone rankings, both in terms of online sales as well as winning consumer trust, according to various reports. The company has been known to bring ‘top of the line’ features in the mid-segment. OnePlus packs most of the feature found in a premium smartphone, and it comes at a much lower price. While the OnePlus 5 was not much of a success in terms of popularity, much of its credit goes to the outdated design. However, if the leaked images are any proof, then the company seems to make amends to that, and it may pose threat to Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxys (whose prices are ever increasing).
As far as the recent leak is concerned, SlashLeaks posted a leaked image from its Twitter handle. If the pictures are close to the original OnePlus 5T that will get launched, it will feature a 6-inch screen with 18:9 display. It will be a dramatic new change in the OnePlus series. Some of the reports have said that it could also be the OnePlus 6, but that is unlikely if we look at the company’s history. According to another report in GizmoChina, the display on the phone may have a 2160×1080 resolution. There may also be some small hardware additions like dust and water resistance.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has not revealed any plans to launch a new flagship smartphone in the market. While some reports say that the OnePlus 6 will launch in the summer of 2018 as is always the case, but some of them said that there may be an early February-March release as well.
