OnePlus 5T leaked image confirms flagship killer sports bezel-less design and 18:9 display
Yet another leaked image of the OnePlus 5T has basically confirmed the smartphone will have an 18:9 aspect ratio display squeezed into a bezel-less design.
Previous leaked renders of OnePlus’ next ‘flagship killer’ phone have already given pretty clear hint of what we can expect from the handset. But fresh images that look like official teaser images, spotted by Android Authority, show a phone that has done away with the OnePlus 5’s front-mounted home button and fingerprint scanner and has instead opted for bezel-eating display.
The display, which all signs point towards it measuring in at 6 inches, looks to have adopted the popular 18:9 aspect ratio used by the likes of the LG G6, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Pixel 2 XL to fit big screens into phones that don’t necessarily take two hands to handle.
Using this screen size and aspect ratio means OnePlus had to remove physical buttons from the front of the OnePlus 5T, with the fingerprint scanner likely moved to the back of the phone, though we hope it’s positioned better than the scanner on the Galaxy S8.
Due to its size increase we’d also expect the display to come sporting a resolution of 2160 x 1080, an upgrade on the 1920 x 1080 resolution display found in the OnePlus 5.
There’s no word on when the OnePlus 5T will be released or how much it will cost, but we’d hazard a guess and say it’ll make an appearance before the end of the year, with a price somewhere in the ballpark of £600, which will see it undercut rival high-end Android smartphones by some margin.
