OnePlus 5T specs, hands-on photos, and unboxing video leak ahead of official launch

So…the OnePlus 5T launch is on November 16th, but the only thing that is really left to find out is confirmation of its price, thanks to a couple of leaks over the weekend. The first leak occurred when ZDNet Germany published a bunch of comparison images between the OnePlus 5T and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2, followed by a YouTube vlogger posting an unboxing video of OnePlus’ newest phone. Join us for more details after the break. 

The leaked comparison images were responsible for the most damage, providing confirmation of the OnePlus 5T’s hardware, consisting of the following:

  • 6-Inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 resolution, 18:9 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Snapdragon 835
  • Adreno 540 GPU
  • 6GB/8GB RAM
  • 64GB/128GB Internal storage
  • Dual rear cameras (16MP f/1.7 + 20MP f/1.7)
  • 16MP Front camera
  • OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • USB Type C, 3.5mm audio jack
  • Bluetooth 5.0, NFC
  • Rear fingerprint sensor
  • 3,300mAh battery with 5V 4A charging
  • Dimensions: 156.1 x 75 x 7.3mm
  • Weight: 5.7 ounces (162 g)

For the most part, the OnePlus 5T carries the same internals as it’s predecessor barring a couple of exceptions; the upgrade to a 6-inch AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and the subsequent moving of the fingerprint reader from the front to the back of the phone.

On to the second leak which gives us some great views of the OnePlus 5T being compared to the OnePlus 5. While the actual video has been pulled by the YouTube vlogger, it was, luckily for us, uploaded somewhere else, and we’ve kindly embedded it below for your perusal.

Based on what you can see below and the leaked specifications above, do you plan on upgrading to the OnePlus 5T?

    I’m tempted. Really tempted. But my OP3T with LineageOS still works like a charm.

      And my OnePlus X, which OnePlus doesn’t like to mention for some reason, is still a worthy backup phone that I use for work.
