The affordable yet decently specced OnePlus 5 wowed tech crowds as it flaunted a set of dual cameras, Qualcomm’s top-notch Snapdragon 835 processor, and a price far less than Apple or Samsung flagships. Now, rumors of its successor, the OnePlus 5T, are making rounds on the Internet as tech enthusiasts wait on OnePlus’ next flagship release this upcoming Fall.
The Snapdragon 835 is still Qualcomm’s latest chipset offering, thus hinting that the OnePlus 5T would sport the same chipset as its predecessor. In a supposed Antutu benchmark leak uncovered by Gizchina.it, the technical data sheet reveals specs which include the Snapdragon 835 Chipset, the Adreno 540 GPU, 8 GB of RAM, a ROM of 128 GB, and a Full HD+ screen resolution of 1080 x 2160. Following the AnTutu Benchmark leak is also the speculation of dual 20-megapixel shooters and Android 8.0 Oreo as the phone’s operating system.
Matching the 2017 design aesthetic
Evan Blass of Venture Beat recently tweeted a render of the phone that’s rumored to arrive this fall. Making rounds all across social media, the render hints of an all-screen design with close to non-existent bezels—an aesthetic that points to the OnePlus 5T finally adopting 2017’s most prominent design trend. With physical similarities to the recently released iPhone 8, the 5T is said to sport the same 2.5D curved glass.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently shared his sentiments on the ergonomic and visual advantages of OLED display technology. Citing Samsung as the current best AMOLED manufacturer, it isn’t far-fetched that we’d be seeing the Korean Tech Behemont’s screens on the OnePlus 5T.
