While OnePlus is yet to officially confirm its plans to unveil the OnePlus 5T, a new leak from a credible source gives us a best look at the handset we’ve seen so far. The leak comes from Evan Blass aka @evleaks, who has a rather solid reputation with his leaks and speculations about unannounced handsets. Going by the latest render posted by Blass, it appears OnePlus will follow the latest increasingly popular trend of bezel-free displays with the rumored OnePlus 5T. The leaked render clearly shows that bezels have significantly reduced compared to the original OnePlus 5.
The slimming display bezels has become increasingly popular lately. Samsung started the trend of bezel free smartphones with the latest Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, as well as the Galaxy Note 8. Even Xiaomi’s Mi Mix concept phone was much lauded for its unique design featuring a bezel-less display.
Not only are manufactures opting for an edge to edge display, they’re also going for screens having an aspect ratio of 18:9. And going by the latest render posted by Evan Blass, it appears even the OnePlus 5T will have its side bezels significantly reduced. Elsewhere, the latest render also shows that the OnePlus 5T will sport subtly rounded corners around the edges.
Past leaks also suggest that the OnePlus 5T will have its fingerprint scanner relocated on the handset’s back. In addition, the device is also expected to feature and improved camera system along with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo.
That said, readers are advised to take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing is confirmed until OnePlus makes an official announcement. However, it appears the company is gearing up for the launch of the OnePlus 5T as OnePlus c-founder Carl Pei recently confirmed that the OnePlus 5 has gone out of stock in most international markets. There’s no word on the handset’s official launch date yet, but rumor has it that the OnePlus 5T is expected to go official November 16.
