OnePlus 5T is also expected to have a 6-inch display that offers QuadHD resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
Following reports that OnePlus intended to go straight from the OnePlus 5 to the OnePlus 6, bypassing any updates to the 5, with the version 6 being launched in India in 2018, rumour now has it that the Chinese company now intends to launch OnePlus 5T in India as early as November 2017. This was mentioned in a report from GizmoChina.
OnePlus is a fairly recent entrant into the Indian markets, having celebrated 1,000 days in the country in Q2 of 2017.
What to Expect from OnePlus 5T
According to reports, the 5T looks very much like Samsung Galaxy 8, with curved edges and very slim top and bottom bezels, although it is taller than its predecessors. However, unlike the 3T, which only received an upgrade in the processor from the OnePlus 3, the 5T is likely to have several modifications, including a new design that is in keeping with the bezel-less trend.
The smartphone is also expected to have a 6-inch display that offers QuadHD resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. However, there is no change in the processor from the OnePlus 5. When it is released, the 5T is likely to compete with Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
There have been reports that OnePlus 5’s Slate Grey option is already out of stock in several regions across the world, including the UK, which is why the Chinese smartphone maker is looking at launching an update, just five months after the release of OnePlus 5.
Several experts believe, however, that given that the new phone to be launched looks so different from OnePlus 5, it might not be called OnePlus 5T at all and the company might just jump to OnePlus 6. Although what the new phone will be called is still unclear, reports do say that a November 2017 launch is more than likely.
