OnePlus 5T unboxing video leaks ahead of official announcement

We're less than a week away from the official reveal of the OnePlus 5T, but pictures of the upcoming flagship have already leaked online just a few days ago.

Today, we have a 5-minute unboxing video that compares OnePlus' current flagship with the OnePlus 5T. The video was uploaded to YouTube by a vlogger but has since been pulled since any information, articles, and videos about the OnePlus 5T are under embargo.

The good news (or bad for OnePlus) is someone else uploaded the video somewhere else and it's unlikely that it will be pulled anytime soon.

Well, if you enjoy spoilers when it comes to smartphones, this video will show you everything you need to know about the OnePlus 5T before the smartphone even gets revealed.

The one major difference between the OnePlus 5 and 5T is the display and the location of the fingerprint sensor. Since the OnePlus 5T comes with a bezel-less screen with 18:9 aspect ratio, the phone doesn't include a home button anymore, so the fingerprint sensor was moved on the back side.

OnePlus 5T will be officially unveiled on November 16 and we believe it will not take that long for the Chinese company to make it available for purchase worldwide.

if the hardware BOM cost 250$ + license fee, and R&D, staffs salary, & liabilities cost 5M$ per month, how many phones you should sell at 400$ to make profits per months?

Then you will shout out about Chinese selling your data. And according to your logic then this phone costs 100$ less to produce than the iPhone X and you want it to be priced 400? Then does this mean the iPhone X should be priced 500? And the iPhone 8 should be priced 400 too?

Usage stats like shutdown and poweron are collected by almost all companies.

Make it almost zero license fees and almost zero R&D, a small software team for near stock Android with limited time software support, almost zero advertising budget, non-existent local service centers and benefits of online only sales like no middle man's cut, no excess inventory. Profit isn't necessarily come with higher prices. Once Oneplus has revealed they were making more money than LG. That was at the time of $299 worth Oneplus One. In theory can make more money per unit they sold, but if they can't sell, they will lose money like many estanblished brands doing for years.

Good price, up-to-date design, 3.5mm jack, flagship specs, non-LG AMOLED screen.. But there must be something missing, Oneplus must mess something up, like always.

No water-resistance, same garbage camera without OIS like OP5, no wireless charging(matters to some people), port stuck at USB 2.0, same battery size despite bigger screen than OP5, generally buggy software and sometimes even spyware. I own a OP3, and this will be my last Oneplus smartphone, unless they figure out their software(too much jank) and camera.

the camera bump is bigger. it's either got OIS or a f/1.6 aperture.

I doubt that either is true. More likely the phone is thinner.

2nd camera is now f/1.7, but none of them have OIS. All the specs are out.

Since the forehead of the phone is smaller, they can't fit the back camera modules between uppermost shell of the phone and uppermost part of the display. Now back camera modules must sit on back of the display panel and because of that reason display's thickness adds to camera modules' z-height (thickness). So all the other things being equal no wonder camera bump will be more prominent.

With all the leaks this phone has seen, what's left to be revealed officially this week other than price?

Wish they added OIS to the camera.

Their EIS is kinda good (but EIS wont help in low light condition :-/)

No upgrades from one plus 5,other than reducing the bezels....if they charge more for just this, then they are on path of becoming next samsung, or HTC, and people will start looking for some other set, instead of purchasing one plus....

Doesn't look too bad. Doesn't seem to have anything differentiating it from the 1+5 other than the 18:9 ratio. Hope they price it right.

worldpeace, I'm guessing it's their update policy since the 3T gets Oreo as last OS. That's the only thing I'm worried about.

It's looks pretty great to me! Let's hope legendary OPO 5 battery life holds up with this new larger screen. Well done OP!

Carl iPhone and lg fanboy now one plus wow. But one plus 5 T looks good to be honest.

This display should have been on the OnePlus 5, if the camera's good I'll be picking one up. So long as there are no other issues.
