OnePlus 5T shows off its slimmer bezels in new leaked render
by Kaloyan C. / Oct 30, 2017, 8:11 AM
Last year's OnePlus 3T was an unusual device: in essence, it was a slightly upgraded version of the OnePlus 3, seemingly built to take advantage of the then-new Snapdragon 821 SoC. But unlike last year, late 2017 never brought us an upgrade to the OnePlus 5's Snapdragon 835. So it's only natural to think OnePlus doesn't have a reason to release a mid-cycle upgrade to its current flagship.
OnePlus 5T has all been confirmed as real, both via leaked information and OnePlus' own guerrilla marketing strategies. We've already seen a render of the device (which you can also find embedded at the top of this post), but that showed almost nothing of the actual device. However, famed leakster Evan Blass has just released a much better picture of the 5T giving us a clear look at its top half:And yet, this doesn't appear to be the case — a
In line with previous rumors, the OnePlus 5T looks to be following the trend of shrinking its screen bezels — although the top is noticeably taller than, say, that of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Notably missing is any sort of secondary infrared camera like the ones Samsung and Apple use in their flagships, so you'll most likely have to kiss those high-tech face recognition dreams goodbye for now.
Also noteworthy is the fact that this render and the one leaked by Android Authority earlier this month use the same wallpaper, which will most likely be the default one, as well as the one which will be featured in most of the device's marketing.
Sadly, we have yet to get a good look at the 5T's rear panel, which is said to now house the fingerprint sensor. However, we imagine this will be the only other major change from the 5, considering the device's incremental nature. Specs-wise, things are expected to be pretty much the same, though OnePlus has previously teased improvements in the camera department. We don't yet have an exact release date for the OnePlus 5T, though it is widely expected some time after November 20.

These are S7 sized bezels yet people will market it as 'bezeless'

Originality has nothing to do with OnePlus and vice versa

True. OnePlus is all about value and perfomance. Of course the design is derivative, it's an Oppo company.

Look at the LG G2 from like 4 years ago. How many "bezel-less" phones have smaller bezels than the "old" LG G2 ?

G2 was an engineering marvel for its time. Too bad LG was unable to replicate that phone, ever. The V30 comes close but has a controversial screen. And about the design, the G2 definitely had bigger bezels, especially the bottom one.
