OnePlus has confirmed an event which will go down later this week on November 16. The OnePlus 5T will be the star of the show, a successor to the OnePlus 5 which turned six months old just a few weeks ago. With the announcement inching closer, leaks are becoming more prevalent, and there was a big one over the weekend. Turn away now if you want to avoid further spoilers.
It’s next to impossible for companies to avoid leakage in today’s world. ZDNet Germany, recently captured it all including the OnePlus 5T and all of its box contents as you can see below. Everything has since been taken down, but Phone Arena was able to grab the shots while they were still there.
According to the leaked images, which show the upcoming OnePlus 5T from just about every angle and the specs it will have, the phone will be everything it has shaped up to be. The smartphone closely resembles the OnePlus 5 from the rear with some small refinements including better placing of the device’s fingerprint reader – now centered on the back. On the front, there are quite a few differences. There’s a much larger display, said to be 6-inches measured diagonally. It is also of an 18:9 aspect ratio, the modern approach when it comes to today’s Android flagships, in contrast to the 16:9 ratio that was the standard for many years past and still is for mid-range handsets.
The top, bottom and side bezels have all been shrunken down on the OnePlus 5T to provide single-handed use and a higher screen-to-body ratio. The home button that used to house the fingerprint scanner is gone, because as we mentioned, it’s now on the backside.

The leaked spec sheets attached below show the display having a Full HD resolution of an AMOLED type, which should give off vibrant colors and increased screen viability outdoors. The lower screen resolution will contribute to better battery life, as will a larger 3,300mAh battery cell. As for other hardware internals, the phone appears to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 835 processor and either 6GB or 8GB RAM, which could depend on whether you choose the 64GB or 128GB storage variant. We also see in the leaked photos that the phone will come with dual rear-facing cameras (16MP + 20MP), Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C for charging, a 3.55mm headphone jack, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the latest version of OxygenOS layered on top.
