OnePlus 5T shows off its slimmer bezels in new leaked render


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.

And yet, this doesn't appear to be the case — a 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:


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.

Now this are some thin side bezels, getting closer to the champ S8, more like Nubia Z17.

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

S7's upper bezels is big enough to fit samsung's logo. This one is definitely smaller

Definitely smaller than the S7. I don't understand how you cannot see that?

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.

Value? S8 is 520$ what value?

Value at launch. The S8 is how many months old now?

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

The G2 was a beast for its time, with a great design and screen. Too bad it was running Optimus UI.

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.

But the side bezels of the G2 is still top notch even by 2017 standards.

Oh yeah, definitely. And they will be top notch even in 2020, since they are non existent.

Oppo F5!

This definitely follows the Vivo x20 blue print.

Vivo/Oppo/OnePlus...you'll find this phone is pretty much the same as one of the other phones, since they are all the same company (BBK electronics)

Atleast in looks. Vivo runs funtouch which by far is the best ui out of the three. Oppo and one plus run nearly stock android.
