New model after OnePlus 5

OnePlus has started teasing on a possible new model after OnePlus 5.

GSMarean has posted a photo of the front.    It has a very narrow chin and forehead.  The side bezels are thinner but in comparison to Samsung S8 Infinity Display, nothing to shout about.

The fingerprint sensor is moved to the rear, all other specs are rumoured to remain the same.

Compared to OnePlus 3 and 3T, this is strange as most people are not expecting this.  In 2016,  for the OnePlus 3, Qualcomm stopped producing the MSM8996 Snapdragon 820, necessitating a change to Snapdragon 821.  This year, the 5’s SOC is 835 is still in production and there are no new CPU models.  This news caught some watchers unaware.


As with all OnePlus models, take it easy on the trigger to buy.  Wait for the bugs if any to surface first.

The 5T was launched with the same specs and price point as OnePlus 3. $499 for 6GB of ram with 64MB of storage or $558GB with 128MB of storage.

Other specs include a 6.01-inch display with reduced bezels at the forehead and chin.  The fingerprint sensor is moved to the back.
