OnePlus 5T Hands-On Photo Leaked Online; Company Officials Tease Camera Samples

  • The leaked hands-on photo shows the smartphone from the front
  • Separately, OnePlus Co-Founder has teased camera samples on Twitter
  • CEO Pete Lau joined Pei with a similar teaser of his own

OnePlus 5T has made an appearance once again in the rumour mill, this time via an alleged hands-on photo that puts the focus on the bezel-less design. The new leak comes just hours after OnePlus 5Tprice and specifications were leaked via a listing on Chinese e-commerce retailer Oppomart, which is already taking pre-orders for the handset. The latest findings match the specifications that had lately surfaced in a pre-order listing in China. Along with these, OnePlus executives have also teased the upcoming smartphone by posting images that are likely taken from it.

The first in the series of new leaks is the hands-on photo that allegedly showcases the front of the OnePlus 5T. The image, surfaced on Weibo, gives another hint about the presence of a bezel-less display on the new OnePlus smartphone that would come with 18:9 aspect ratio. Furthermore, it highlights the absence of the iconic home button on the front that has been a part of the OnePlus series since the OnePlus 2 launch in July 2015.

Another image available on Weibo shows the complete back of the OnePlus 5T. It suggests that the smartphone would sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, as pointed out from a recent teaser.

In addition to the images, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei posted an image on Twitter on Wednesday that appears to be captured by the OnePlus 5T. “Cool photo, must have come from a great camera,” Pei tweeted alongside the image. The monochrome image seems to be captured in a low light environment – detailing the premium capabilities of the next OnePlus flagship.

CEO Pete Lau joined the ongoing teaser trend by uploading a coloured shot through his Twitter account. “Impressive photo. Must be a great camera,” the tweet reads.

If we believe some of the trending stories, the OnePlus 5T will come with an upgraded dual-camera setup that would include optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a larger set of image sensors than what was featured on the OnePlus 5 earlier this year. The smartphone is also rumoured to have a 6-inch full-HD+ display and would be based on Android Oreo out of the box.
