Back in 2016, the OnePlus 3T flagship arrived five months after the launch of its predecessor, namely the OnePlus 3. This year OnePlus is expected to repeat that scenario. The OnePlus 5 Android flagship has been around for four months and its T-labeled successor is rumored to arrive next month. However, the upcoming OnePlus 5T should be noticeably larger than its sibling, pushing the screen size up to 6 inches. The OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 3/3T all used a 5.5-inch display.

The most interesting part is that the OnePlus 5T's 6-inch display is also rumored to join the pretty large crowd of Android flagships that feature displays with an 18:9 ratio. These days, virtually every phone maker seems to be targeting those who want a tall display but would rather stay away from Samsung and Apple. Even small Chinese brands with only a few handsets released so far, such as Maze Mobile or Umidigi, have already launched handsets with 18:9 touchscreen displays, or at least they are planning to do so in the coming months. 

Returning to the OnePlus 5T and its specs, there is not much to add except that, by the looks of the render that surfaced on GizmoChina, its display has curved edges. The insider who leaked the image could not confirm this fact but made it clear that this is the OnePlus 5T and not the Oppo F5 that looks identical from the front.

OnePlus still has to confirm the arrival of this new model, but since the OnePlus 5 is out of stock in many markets already, its larger sibling might become the one to take its place. Sure, the recent scandal about OnePlus collecting user data without permission will not push the sales of the company's upcoming phone, but at least we can hope that the OnePlus 5T will be able to keep this Chinese brand in the game.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
