OnePlus has been teasing the upcoming 5T for a few weeks now, and it seems like we are getting closer to the official release date.
Recently, the CEO has confirmed that 80% of their customers love their headphone jack, this was posted on twitter and it suggests that the upcoming refresh would have it too.
This is certainly good new for the headphone lovers. But let’s not forget about other key features and specifications.
The OnePlus 5T is expected to come with upgraded internals and hopefully with an improved design – though we don’t expect a lot of changes.
The main difference between the 5 and 5T will definitely be on the front. The new flagship is expected to come with a screen size between 5.7″-6″. It will certainly follow the suit of other flagship devices on the market with its 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2160 resolution (sadly no QHD to be found – though many will surely love this)
In terms of the chipset, it should come with Snapdragon 835 and 6GB of RAM with 64GB of built-in storage; and 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.
On the back, it should be identical to the OnePlus 5 and very similar to the recently announced Oppo R11s.
As you can see, the fingerprint sensor would still be located on the back centre along with the dual camera setup. The cameras are supposedly 20MP sensors. The main one being a 20 MP, f/1.7 while the secondary would also see an upgrade at 20 MP, f/2.6 with phase detection autofocus, 1.6x optical zoom and dual-LED flash.
Carl Pei (CEO of OnePlus) has been teasing images on Twitter of the capabilities of the new 5T and they indeed look promising, providing a lot of minor but much needed improvements over the OnePlus 5.
The device is expected to be officially revealed on 16 November and cost approximately between $550-$650 (depending on which memory option you opt for, of course)
