Latest, Alleged Leaked OnePlus 5T Teaser Image Shows Massive Edge-To-Edge Display Upgrade, 18:9 Aspect Ratio
As we’ve been telling you for months, this year’s all about edge to edge displays. If you’re a manufacturer with a device that has the feature, your device is in the top 1% of smartphones. If not, expect the market to skip over your offering, branding it as medium tier. Changed dynamics for 2017 have created sub-segments within traditional market categorizations. The clearest example of this is the Nokia 8. The device features all the relevant, high-end specifications. But its design, due to lack of an edge to edge display, leaves much to be desired. Now, OnePlus will present its take on minimum bezeled devices. Take a look below to find out more.
Latest, Alleged OnePlus 5T Teaser Image Shows Minimum Bezels, Increased Aspect Ratio
Following similar suit as with the OnePlus 3, OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 5T next month, according to rumors. The smartphone will feature the same specifications as its direct predecessor. What this means is that you should expect the Snapdragon 835 power the device, alongside a 16MP rear camera and 6/8GB RAM. However, design wise, the 5T will be a very different device.
Ever since rumors of the device started to surface, we’ve heard one claim repeat itself. It states that the One Plus 5T will feature a larger aspect ratio when compared to the OnePlus 5. The smartphone’s screen will feature a 18:9 ratio, quite similar to what’s present on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG’s G6. This upgrade will nest the smartphone comfortably among Android’s best for the year, perhaps even bringing the term ‘flagship killer’ to merit.
Display resolution for the smartphone will stand at 2160x1080p. Today’s image shows an aluminum frame for the smartphone, alongside bottom firing speakers. It’s similar to an earlier leak which showed a similar display and no front fingerprint sensor. Apart from that, don’t expect any significant changes. After all, despite all its claims, OnePlus is a small company, with a small operational scale.
With the amount of upgrades we’ve witnessed this year, one can only imagine what 2018 has in store. But don’t get too excited. These things rarely follow a linear trend, with progress often occurring in steps. Of course, whatever upgrades do take place, we’ll be here to tell you all about them. Till then, stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
