New image may show part of the OnePlus 5T

With a rumored launch in November, a new image was posted by Evan Blass this morning on Twitter. He says it is the top half of the OnePlus 5T. The highlight of the image is the the bezel-less display. The design shows the screen stretching from side-to-side with very thin bezels and a considerably narrowed top bezel holding the camera lens for the front camera.

While the image appears to be a rendering, if accurate, the OnePlus 5T is taking on a design that seems very similar to how LG is treating the bezel-less design. This leaves off the curved edges that Samsung is employing. However, we do see slightly rounded corners for the display. The narrow top bezel and flat screen seems consistent with both the LG G6, LG V30 and the LG produced Google Pixel 2 XL.

Missing from the image is the lower half, likely because it might confirm that OnePlus has in fact moved the fingerprint scanner off the front of the device. Previously leaks have suggested OnePlus is moving the sensor to the back of the device to accommodate the bezel-less design of the display.

Other than increasing the size and implementing this new display design, the rest of the OnePlus 5T is expected to be the same as the OnePlus 5 in terms of hardware. Some reports have suggested the price difference between the two devices will be minimal, possibly as small as $20.
