OnePlus 5T teaser images have surfaced online just a day after the first renders of the rumoured handset were released. As with the renders, the new OnePlus 5T teasers puts in focus the minimal bezels around the display panel. OnePlus would be following the industry trend of 18:9 aspect ratio with the upcoming phone, which is widely expected to launch sometime in November. The OnePlus 5T is also expected to sport a larger display than the OnePlus 5’s 5.5-inch panel, which would make it the biggest phone by the company yet.

OnePlus 5T specifications
Some recent reports claim that the OnePlus 5T will sport a 6-inch display along with a full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) resolution. Thus, to make space for the large display panel, OnePlus has apparently shifted the fingerprint scanner from the front to the back of the 5T – as spotted in the newest render (and seen in previous leaks).
The leaked image also suggests an aluminium frame with a bottom-positioned speaker on the OnePlus 5T. Additionally, the smartphone is expected to have a slightly higher capacity battery than the 3500mAh pack available on the OnePlus 5.
Folks at Android Authority believe that despite the larger display and higher capacity battery, the OnePlus 5T will have a similar chassis to that of the OnePlus 5. This means that both the OnePlus smartphones will have identical dimensions – even making the new model compatible with accessories designed for the months old OnePlus 5.
That being said, OnePlus is yet to confirm the development of the OnePlus 5T. But a number of rumours and the quality of leaks suggest that an official announcement could soon take place. Moreover, the Shenzhen-based company has already made a history of launching an upgrade of its flagship model with the release of the OnePlus 3T last year.
