This news comes with another news, two of the three variants of the older OP5 have sold out. The only version remaining in stock is the soft gold 6GB/64GB variant, so OP might release the OnePlus 5T. Not just that, but a sudden growth in competition could be another reason driving OP to upgrade their current flagship.
The current OP5 misses out on a few must have 2017 flagship features, most notably the bezel-less display. And speculations from GizmoChina hints at a new 6″ inch QHD (2,160 x 1,080) display with an 18:9 bezel-less design. So a hint of fresh air, as the older OP3 and 3T weren’t much of an upgrade looks wise.

The SoC will remain the same with Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 835. The RAM and storage will also remain the same as well, which isn’t much of a topic to complain about. The website that reported this news does mention that the renders of OnePlus 5T look a lot like the unreleased OPPO F5. Not a surprise as Oppo and OnePlus shared a similar design language in the past between the OP5 and Oppo’s R11.
The battery on the OnePlus 5T could be bigger, seeing how the Oppo F5 is rumored to sport the huge 4000mAh battery. So the 3300mAh battery will most probably go up, also the bigger and higher resolution screen will surely need a battery upgrade.
Finally, the renders of the OnePlus 5T shows curved sides just like the Galaxy S8. So, however unlikely, the phone could sport a curved bezel-less screen. But we will have to wait and see which of these speculations pan out. GizmoChina says that the sources have proven reliable in the past, so take this news with a pinch of salt.
