OnePlus 5T billed for late November release
Word of OnePlus' upcoming OnePlus 5T has been on the rise, with new information by Twitter leaker Evan Blass pointing towards an end of November release. The device was spotted on AnTuTu earlier in the day, with the listing throwing some light on what we should expect from OnePlus' next offering.
OnePlus started the trend of follow-up devices with the OnePlus 3T last year, a device that went on to eclipse the OnePlus 3. The company will be hoping that the 5T replicates that feat, as it gets set for launch exactly a year after the 3T and just five months after the 5.
The OnePlus 3T brought significant upgrades to the OnePlus 3, most notable being the slight improvement in SoC—the Snapdragon 821 essentially being an overclocked Snapdragon 820—and cameras. The 5T will not have the luxury of shipping with a new SoC, though, so it will feature the same Snapdragon 835 that was seen on the OnePlus 5. It will, however, sport a new display form, as it opts for the full-screen 18:9 display over the standard 16:9 one seen on the OnePlus 5.
The AnTuTu listing showed a OnePlus device with the model name "A5010"—the OnePlus 5 was the A5000. The device was listed with the Snapdragon 835, 1080 x 2160 display resolution, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. The cameras listed were 20 MP + 20 MP sensors, which represents a slight improvement over the 20 MP + 16 MP sensors on the OnePlus 5. Android 8.0 completes the listing, which makes sense considering users of OnePlus devices already have beta versions of Oreo.
Prices are unconfirmed at the moment but we wouldn't be surprised if the OnePlus 5T launched with a price tag in the region of US$550.
None of this is concrete evidence of anything at this point, so you'd do well to take it all with a pinch of salt.
