The much-rumored OnePlus 6T is expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. Ahead of the launch, alleged real-world photos of the upcoming OnePlus flagship device has surfaced online. Taking a glance at the photos, the device showcases a waterdrop-like notch along with rounded corners, and an in-display fingerprint scanner at the bottom. One of the photos also indicates that the device will also come with the Face Unlock feature, which is already present on devices like the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T.

There are no additional details or angles visible, and it looks like the alleged OnePlus 6T is already sporting a silicon case. According to Slashleaks, these photos were initially spotted on Weibo. The bottom of the case does show off a cutout for the micro-USB, but a second cutout makes us suspicious about the authenticity of these photos. The second cutout is most likely for a 3.5mm audio jack, which would be incorrect as OnePlus has already confirmed that it is removing the legacy jack from the upcoming device.

Other things that make us suspicious about this leak are the icons on the device. These icons in the status bar are not in line with the design philosophy that OxygenOS has followed since its initial days. Instead, these icons look suspiciously similar to something that we have seen on Vivo devices.

It is highly likely that someone took a Vivo smartphone, put OnePlus lock screen wallpaper on their lock screen, and then tried to pass those image as the OnePlus 6T images.
