OnePlus 5T appears in photograph snapped in Paris?

Amid all sorts of rumors and speculation, earlier today OnePlus CEO Pete Lau killed two birds with one stone. In a message posted on his company's own forum, he not only confirmed that OnePlus' next handset will have a 3.5mm wireless jack, he called it the OnePlus 5T by name. Thus, rumors that this would be the name of the next model from OnePlus turned out to be right on.

Teasers from OnePlus show that the 5T will probably be the same physical size as the OnePlus 5, but will sport a larger screen because of the narrower bezels. It is the same effect that makes the Apple iPhone X smaller in size than the Apple iPhone 7 Plus even though it is equipped with a larger screen. The OnePlus 5 carries a 5.5-inch display.

Today, a tweet taken by e-Sports player Alessandro Palmarini‏ included a photo of someone holding what could very well be the OnePlus 5T. Check out the thinner bezels compared to the OnePlus 5 that happens to be right next to the new model. Considering that Palmarini's e-Sports team is sponsored by OnePlus, this image of the OnePlus 5T appears to be legit. The photo was taken during an event being held during this week's Paris Game Week that runs through this coming Sunday.
