The OnePlus 5’s dwindling presence on the shelves of late can only mean one thing. Something new is coming. And sure enough, the follow up OnePlus 5T is expected to make a global debut on 16 November 2017. There has been numerous leaks online, and the latest shows a nearly edge-to-edge screen with ultrathin bezels.
The “FullView” 18:9 display isn’t much of a surprise, since the OnePlus 5T’s cousin—OPPO R11 sports a similar display and design. The latest leaked image reveals 2.5D glass, and the display is rumoured to be a 6-inch AMOLED panel (1080×2160) from Samsung, thanks to a tweet by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau.
OLED helps us build thinner devices and better display experiences. Samsung's display technology is currently the best for Optic AMOLED. ?

The OnePlus 5T will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
OnePlus co-founder, on the other hand, tweeted out a photo, suspected to be taken with the yet-to-be-release OnePlus 5T. The image was taken in “Portrait” mode, a popular feature these days on smartphones than keeps the main subject in focus while blurring the background. In short, it simulates bokeh on a camera.

The OnePlus 5T is rumoured to feature the same dual-camera setup that was on the OnePlus 5. It purportedly uses a 16MP Sony IMX371 sensor with wide-angle lens, mated to a 20MP IMX350 sensor with telephoto lens on the rear. The front shooter will be a commendable 16MP f/2.0 unit.
