More convincing OnePlus 5T images with the "Same Footprint" arrives

Speaking of the "bezel-less" display, the OnePlus 5T is tipped to have a flat edged screen, unlike Samsung's Galaxy flagships. The latest OnePlus 5T leak offers us another glimpse at the device.

Looking at last year's approach, the release of the OnePlus 3T meant a bigger battery so hopefully, we'll see this positive change in this year's OnePlus 5T assuming that it actually does get announced during the month of November. The OnePlus 5T leaked render suggests that it's also going to move to the 18:9 aspect ratio for the display. It is highly unlikely that OnePlus will delay the introduction of OnePlus 5T until next year as they have OnePlus 6 in the offing. These leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt until there is an official announcement from the company.

The smartphone in the leaked pictures has equal top and bottom bezels with nearly no side bezels. If they are accurate, we would expect OnePlus to confirm the details of the OnePlus 5T within the next few weeks, and fans are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled. OnePlus was criticised heavily after the launch of OnePlus 5 because the device is a copy of the Oppo R11, barring some changes such as the alert slider, LED module, and camera bump.


And the images clearly show the OnePlus 5T with zero bezels on sides and minimal bezels on top and bottom. The report also points out that OnePlus is likely to pack a dual camera setup on the front of the device.

They show an nearly bezel-less display with the new, taller 18:9 ratio and a missing front fingerprint reader. The official listing touts 'Larger screen, Same footprint.' while describing the form of the device.

The image depicts the handset from both the front and back, with the pictured phone looking nearly identical to the already-available OnePlus 5. One recurring rumor is that it's going to feature a bezel-less display.
