While we all are going gaga over different brands and launches like Mi Mix 2 by Xiaomi, Galaxy Note 8 and what not, another huge star has been preparing to launch itself pretty soon. The smartphone in scrutiny is OnePlus 5T and the company tried really hard to keep its sepcifications under wraps but a Chinese portal GizmoChina claims that it already knows everything about the new cell phone by OnePlus.
We can call it a pretty serious rumor because all we knew or anticipated by this phone was NOTHING. The release date is not too far either as it is said to launch in November.
This report by GizmoChina claims that like the OnePlus 3 and 3T series which had no major changes save the battery life, the OnePlus 5T would be not be much different from its predecessor. While the company has a custom of releasing new models in November, the report seems believable.
OnePlus 5 launched with a small 3,300 mAh battery which would definitely increase in the upcoming OnePlus 5T model. The processor is expected to be the same i.e. Snapdragon 835 and let’s be frank, we don’t even need anything faster than this one. Right?
The important internal specs of the rumored phone is expected to be pretty much the same but there will be major changes in design and display. While OnePlus 5 had 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, the OnePlus 5T will most probably have a 6.0-inch 2,160 x 1,080 resolution display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. We can expect a bigger change in display with OnePlus 6 but not in the 5T, the report says.
However, there has been doubts about this report because the image of the alleged “Upcoming T phone” looks a lot like the last Oppo 5. The image shows the device having Oppo’s software and all of us know how impossible it is to have Oppo’s software in a OnePlus!
We can then understand that the image is not an exact or actual respresentation of the upcoming model but the specifications mentioned might be the same.
