OnePlus 5T expected specifications
The company hasn’t officially confirmed any of the details about the phone except that it will keep the 3.5mm audio jack. However, there has been a lot of speculation and unconfirmed leaks about the phone, which suggest that it will include a 6-inch 18:9 screen with 2160x1080p resolution with slim bezels.
Among other specifications, the OnePlus 5T will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and pack 8GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage. In terms of the imaging chops, we expect to see a dual rear camera setup with twin 20MP sensors. A 16MP or 20MP shooter is likely to be present on the front of the device.
On the software front, the 5T is very likely to run Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS right out of the box. There will be a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device as well. Other details about the phone are a mystery at this point, however thanks to @evleaks, we do have a decent render of the phone. Check it out below.
