The OnePlus 5 has only been around since July but there are already leaks for the next big thing from the company, the OnePlus 5T.
The three-month-old OnePlus 5
The smartphone still can’t be confirmed to be anything more than a rumour, but the company is known for posting teasers in advance of releases. The new device is claimed to be the new 5T, and a listing that cropped up on Oppomart even seems to indicate some of the specs it’ll have.
According to the supposed leaks, the OnePlus 5T will have a 6-inch 1440×2560 display with 20MP and 16MP dual rear cameras. It’s rumoured to have a Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM (two different variants) and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage respectively, and will be powered by a 3,450mAh battery
The supposed leaked image of the OnePlus 5T on Weibo
Most importantly however, it seems the Home button on the OnePlus 5T may now be gone. If the leaked images aren’t fake, the device is getting significantly narrower bezels, while doing away with the button, instead shifting the fingerprint scanner to the rear.
OnePlus has yet to confirm that the new device is indeed a 5T, which means there’s no official launch date yet. However, the OnePlus 3T was unveiled November 15 last year, just three months after the OnePlus 3, so the timing is right.
Got a second, reliable confirmation here, claiming a post-11/20 release. https://t.co/KDvBH8y7NO

Unfortunately, the price is also likely to rise some more. The OnePlus 5 was priced at Rs 37,999 for the 64GB version and the OnePlus 3T starting at Rs 29,999, so it’s likely the 5T will be priced somewhere in the range of Rs 40,000 to Rs 45,000.
