The OnePlus 5T launch could well be closer than we think, and with every passing day, leaks around the phone have only become more frequent. After some alleged hands-on photos of the OnePlus 5T were leaked last week, another leak has now surfaced, which only reinstates the belief of the OnePlus 5T featuring an edge-to-edge display. Along with that, OnePlus CEO Carl Pei has also teased a sample image that shows off the Portrait Mode on the smartphone.

Talking about the design leak first, it shows a nearly edge-to-edge screen with slim bezels. The leak is a render of the top half of the OnePlus 5T, which was tweeted out by trusted leakster Evan Blass. From the image, the phone appears to have 2.5D curved glass, similar to the iPhone 8. The leaked image also revealed the SIM tray and the power button placed on the right of the phone. And on the top bezel, we see the earpiece, front camera, and proximity sensor.

The picture shows Portrait Mode at work in OnePlus’ next handset – blurry background and a focused face. And naturally, the picture looks quite impressive. It sort of has to when it is shared by a company executive. So this means, along with the repeatedly rumored edge-to-edge 18:9 display, the OnePlus 5T will surely have a considerable upgrade to its camera.

Last week as well, OnePlus co-founders Carl Pei and Pete Lau teased a bunch of camera samples on Twitter. One of Carl Pei s tweet featured an image of a disco ball with the caption reading, Cool photo, must have come from a great camera . Pete Lau also joined in by tweeting a photo titled, Impressive photo. Must be a great camera . While there is not official word that these camera samples are from the OnePlus 5T, we are willing to bet money on it.

In terms of specifications too, there has been a lot of speculation. From what we know so far, the OnePlus 5T is expected to feature a 6-inch AMOLED full HD+ (1080 2160 pixels) display. It will possibly be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC as seen in the OnePlus 5. In terms of storage and RAM, it will also continue with the same 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage options.

In terms of photography, however, there are expected to be some upgrades. A benchmark listing pointed at a single 20-megapixel rear camera for the OnePlus 5T as opposed to leaked renders. However, a dual-camera module is also highly expected with possibly the same configurations, but upgraded features. Further, the OnePlus 5T is believed to be fueled by a 3,450mAh battery with support for Dash Charging, and will run Android Oreo 8.0 out-of-the-box with the latest OxygenOS version layered above.
