October 30: OnePlus 5T may not be really Bezel-less after all.
People went haywire over the news that the OnePlus 5 would be a bezel-less device. However, latest updates say that while the phone may not have any side bezels, some place would be left above and below the display to make room for the speaker grill and front camera.
Here’s what we were told in the first place:
OnePlus 5T will be the next premium phone from the Chinese smartphone manufacturers that will be launched next month. From the leaked images, we have learned that OnePlus 5T appears to have a design similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone X. The upcoming smartphone also seems to feature a bezel-less display leaving a no space for the home button. A small bezel appears for the front-camera and the ear-piece.
The latest reports also suggest that OnePlus 5T might sport a larger 6-inch 2160 x 1080p resolution display with 18:9 aspect ratio. From the leaked image, we can also see that just like the OnePlus 5, the 5T might sport a similar aluminium chassis and a speaker on the bottom of the frame. The home button/fingerprint scanner appears to be placed on the rear of the device. Some other reliable sources also reveal that OnePlus 5T’s display will have flat edges.
One Plus 5 features
The OnePlus 5, which was unveiled in the month of June did live up to our expectations. The 5.5-inch full-HD smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor. It is available in two variants: 6/8GB RAM with 64/128GB of internal storage. The dual-camera of this phone comes up with 16MP f/1.7 + 20MP f/2.2 aperture. The camera is capable of recording 4K videos with electronic image stabilization. The phone was running Android 7.1.1 when released and the latest Android O is yet to be announced for this smartphone.
OnePlus 5T Design
The design and the material of OnePlus 5 were similar to that of iPhone 7 Plus. Furthermore, the placements of the dual camera, mirror finish of the logo were also identical to that of iPhone 7 Plus. People will surely notice the similarities if this is repeated in the near future. From the leaked images, we can see that the OnePlus 5T looks similar to Samsung Galaxy S8.
We can expect a dual front camera with some additional features such as the portrait mode for selfies. For the back, it might sport a 16+20MP dual camera just like we have seen in its predecessor. As the camera of OnePlus 5 was a success, there seems no problem featuring the rear-camera of same specifications.
Whatever we gathered from the reliable sources are still a speculation. We will need to wait until November to learn more about the much-awaited smartphone from OnePlus. We will keep our eyes open for more news and update it here.
