OnePlus One abbreviated as OPO was the first Android Smartphone unveiled by a Shenzhen based Chinese company, OnePlus. OPO was launched in April 2014 as an underdog. Nobody was sure how successful the venture would be.
At the moment, Oneplus is the most popular brand beating even Samsung and Apple in India. A recent IDC study claims that Oneplus has over 57% market share in the above Rs. 26,000 price range, way ahead of both Apple and Samsung in India.
OnePlus 5T With a Full Vision Display
It’s all because of their flagship and premium features that are offered at half the prices of the other high-end smartphones.
In the June 2016, OnePlus launched OnePlus 3 and the phone was highly acclaimed by enthusiasts. Only six months later, an upgraded sibling with a barely hiked price was introduced under the name OnePlus 3T.
On the 20th of June, this year, OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 5. And the company is planning to repeat the history again.
It’s been five months since it’s launch and the company is expected to launch a new phone now.
A report by Gizmochina suggests that the OnePlus 5T is on its way and will be a successor to OnePlus 5.
The rumor mill is abuzz with the new leaks that there is a new phone coming in November 2017, we suggest you to take it with a pinch of salt. And if you have already bought a OnePlus 5 you are not going to miss much.
OnePlus 5T is Mostly Going to Have Same Specs as One Plus 5
There were a lot of upgrades for 3T from OnePlus 3 in terms of Chipset, Camera, and battery backup.
Now we can’t really think of possible serious performance upgrades as the OnePlus 5 already offers the best chipset in the market and a great dual camera setup.
But the render that’s leaked by GizmoChina suggests that the OnePlus 5 will get an upgraded bezel-less display.
It might house a 6 Inch Full HD+ 1080 x 2160 pixels display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The OnePlus 5 currently comes with a 5.5 Inch Full HD Display with 16:9 aspect ratio.
Also, the render looks like Oppo F5 that was leaked last week and as the OnePlus and Oppo phones share a very similar design language it could actually turn out to be an Oppo phone.
There may be a similar battery size as the OnePlus 5 and it also likely to come with the same Snapdragon 835 and 8 GB RAM with 128 GB storage.
We also expect the device to run on Android V, 8.0 Oreo out of the box similar to the recently launched Google’s Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL. There are unlikely to be an inclusion of features like the wireless charging or addition of IP 67 rating in the new OnePlus 5T.
Most smartphones in 2017 later half are coming with a bezel-less display, even budget phones like Lg Q6 and Canvas Infinity are launched with this voguish feature. It is a good possibility that OnePlus may like to catch up on the trend and launch another device before a fully upgraded OnePlus 6 arrives mid next year.
