Here's the first portrait photo (likely) taken with the OnePlus 5T

Having released two high-end smartphones in 2016 - OnePlus 3 and 3T - this year, OnePlus is seemingly doing exactly the same thing. With the OnePlus 5 (launched in June) no longer available to buy, we're expecting a OnePlus 5T to be officially announced any time now.


Before an actual announcement unfolds, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei today shared a nice portrait photo that's most likely taken with the upcoming phone. While Pei doesn't really say that the photo - seen on the left - was taken with the OnePlus 5T, this is certainly implied by the quote that accompanies the image on Twitter: "What phone is he taking that photo with?"


Both Carl Pei and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently revealed two other photos (non-portraits) that, according to them, had been taken with a "great camera." All these images seem to be part of a plan to raise customer interest about the next OnePlus phone.


Similar to the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T is expected to have a dual rear camera with a Portrait Mode à la iPhone Plus. The new photo that Carl Pei shared today appears to be confirming the existence of a Portrait Mode on the 5T, as the smiling girl is nicely separated from the background.    


We'd say that this photo - click on it to zoom in - shows great potential for the camera of the OnePlus 5T. Although, of course, we don't know if the image was edited in any way.


Are you looking forward to discovering OnePlus' new flagship phone?

I'd be pissed if I'd just bought a 5. Oneplus are doing a Sony on their fans..

I remember when it seemed like Sony was releasing a new Xperia flagship every few months....they seemed to have slowed down a bit these days.

Selfie doesn't look half bad, huh? But waiting to see more om YouTube before deciding.
