OnePlus co-founder teases portrait mode on upcoming OnePlus 5T smartphone

OnePlus is reportedly planning to launch its second flagship smartphone dubbed the OnePlus 5T on November 16. The smartphone had leaked in the form of renders recently and a promotional page on e-commerce website indicated its purported launch date. While the company has not stated the official launch date just yet, it has started building the hype around it.

Evan Blass, widely recognised for leaking device ahead of launch, has tweeted an image showing the top half of the device. The leaked renders suggest that OnePlus 5T will feature thinner bezels similar to Samsung's Galaxy S8. OnePlus adopted two flagship smartphone a year strategy last year with the launch of OnePlus 3T. While OnePlus 3T brought performance improvement over its predecessor the OnePlus 3, and the new OnePlus 5T is expected to be different from the OnePlus 5 only in terms of design. With OnePlus 5T, the Chinese smartphone maker is planning to say goodbye to those top and bottom bezels.

The smartphone is said to feature a 6-inch full HD+ display but there is a possibility of the company jumping to a Quad HD+ panel. It will use the same Snapdragon 835 chipset found on OnePlus 5 since the San Diego-based chipset maker is not upgrading it for this year.

Other leaked specifications include options for either 6GB or 8GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. It will use the same dual rear camera setup with a 20MP primary camera and a 16MP secondary camera. However, the company is expected to add portrait mode option this time around and its co-founder Carl Pei recently tweeted a sample image with the blurred background. It is tipped to sport a 16MP selfie camera and pack a 3450mAh battery.

The OnePlus 5T will likely launch with Android 8.0 based OxygenOS out of the box and it was listed at $549, translating to around Rs 35,500. OnePlus has dethroned Apple and Samsung to become preferred brand among premium smartphone buyers in India and few other markets and with OnePlus 5T, the company will bring modern design to its existing flagship smartphone.
