OnePlus will present its next smartphone, the new OnePlus 5T, in Brooklyn (New York) on November 16, 2017, at 5 pm. An official page is already in place and the manufacturer is already announcing that its new smartphone will be available online on November 21st at from 15h on its portal Oneplus.net. A photo published the day before by the manufacturer let guess one of Tim Square’s characteristic advertising displays and lines of the Empire State Building.
According to the latest rumors, The OnePlus 5T will retain a configuration running a SoC SnapDragon 835 with 6 to 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage space but it will offer this time a 6-inch display at 18: 9 ratio, covering the almost all of the front face.
OnePlus 5T The smartphone of this end of the year?
OnePlus will renew its latest reference by revising only some of its features. At the end of 2016, the OnePlus 3T succeeded the OnePlus 3 launched in the middle of the summer with a better processor and a larger battery. The 2017 update should rather showcase the screen and keep most of the datasheet of the current model.
The hardware in the OnePlus 5 cannot be improved at this time, for example, the new Snapdragon chip is not yet available. This probably only sends the future OnePlus 6. That’s why OnePlus chooses to make adjustments in the design and the screen. This way, the home button will probably disappear from the front of the device, because the OnePlus 5T gets an almost front-end display. The fingerprint scanner is placed at the back.
Exactly, we do not know the device’s specifications yet. It is possible that OnePlus also makes some changes underneath the hood and that the camera is upgraded. However, OnePlus topman Pete Lau has already confirmed that the device has at least one standard headphone jack. Something less and fewer manufacturers choose.
