OnePlus 5T "teaser image" allegedly shows what's coming after the OnePlus 5


A brand new OnePlus smartphone - possibly called OnePlus 5T - is likely coming soon. While OnePlus has yet to confirm anything about this, we may now have what could be the first trustworthy image of the upcoming handset.



 



According to Android Authority, what we're seeing above is a "teaser image" that shows the OnePlus 5T. Reportedly coming from a trusted source, the image unfortunately doesn't allow us to check out the new phone from all angles, and it's pretty dark overall. Still, we can notice that - just as expected - the OnePlus 5T has thins bezels, and might not feature a front fingerprint scanner (there's no visible home button there anyway).  



 



Similar to the OnePlus 5, which is no longer available to buy, the OnePlus 5T may look a lot like an Oppo or a Vivo phone (since OnePlus, Oppo, and Vivo are sub-brands of the same large company).



 



Rumors have it that the OnePlus 5T offers a 6-inch screen with 1080 x 2160 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio, in addition to other high-end features. If we're to judge by the release of last year's OnePlus 3T, the new smartphone could be officially unveiled and launched next month, in November.



 



We've lightened the above image hoping to spot more details, but, apart from what seem to be two side buttons (volume rocker and alert slider?), there's not much else to discover. Anyway, here's the lightened image:





P.S.: We're not certain if this upcoming phone will be called OnePlus 5T. If it brings enough changes compared to the OnePlus 5, it may as well be called OnePlus 6.

Love the trend that Samsung set with the GS8/GS8+. Bezels on top and bottom are reduced but still there. I don't think I'd want a truly bezel-less phone. I see this design language utilized with the 5T teaser image. Mate 10 also looks great in this regard.

It only makes sense to keep a little top and bottom bezel to hide the camera, flash, and sensors in. What else would they do, make a little notch for them?

Agree. I think Samsung Hit it out of the park with their new design language and as I state previously I notice a change in the industry particularly how not all but a majority of foreign oem ( in china) use to love to clone and copy the iPhones design language but today I am see more of them emulate the Samsung and LG design language. Oled screens curve edges and Bezel - less displays. I like the trend.

OLED screens aren't a design language or ethic though - it's just good technology that looks great on a phone. Samsung makes good OLEDs and now everyone wants one.

Weird thing is that in the UK they removed the 5 from sale, but they have just released the OnePlus 5 JCC+ edition. It's basically a 5 with coloured buttons, a fancy back and a few artsy fartsy wallpapers.

I wonder what tiny bezels would look like on a 5.7inch screen with 16/9 ratio.

Im excited about this. IP 67, improved camera and no jelly effect = winner.

LOL, what a joke the entire smartphone industry has become, but, the jokes on US for continuing to buy this crap. EACH year, we get the same thing...faster processors, SMALLER batteries, slimmer designs and EYE POPPING COLORS (which are covered with a protective case LOL). All of this, and HIGHER prices! I'm not saying it's the best, but the new ZTE dual screen phone is at least something DIFFERENT. Wonder if Oppo ran out of the old 3T screens to put in the 5 series? At least the jelly effect will be gone LOL.
