Courtesy of the folks over at ZDNet Germany, we’re now finally able to get our very first look at the upcoming OnePlus 5T even before the device had been officially unveiled. Although ZDNet had removed the original article shortly after that, but that doesn’t stop the images from being shared across other major publisher as well as various social media sites and forums.
Similar to what rumors had been suggesting, the OnePlus 5T indeed comes with a watered-down bezel this time round and looks utterly similar to the Galaxy S8+ except for a lack of a ‘dual-curve’ along the sides of its display. Other than having a well revamped front-panel, the company had also decided to shift its fingerprint sensor the back of the device as well. Depending on your personal preference, some may favor this move while others may be against it – but we’re not exactly sure why OnePlus chose to relocate it since most flagship devices normally have it at the front instead.
Along with a set of high-definition live images of the handset, we’re also treated with a few snap shots of the OnePlus 5T’s user guide which revealed most of the device’s key specs. This of course include a 6-inches wide FHD+ AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB/ 8GB of RAM, 64GB/ 128GB internal storage space, 16MP+20MP dual main snapper, 16MP front-facing selfie cam, 3,300mAh non-removable battery, as well as Oxygen OS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Likewise, it was also revealed that the OnePlus T will go on sale in the North American and European markets starting November 21st. Since most of the mysteries had already been cleared by ZDNet, the only aspect we’re uncertain of will be its pricing which a recent post by the company’s CEO seemed to suggest that the 8GB variant could cost around 4,000 Yuan ($602) this time round.
