OnePlus 5 was a good phone, and it apparently was more popular than the OnePlus 3T, as claimed by the company executive. OnePlus 5T is reportedly in its final stage of development and may go official sometime around November. A lot has already been talked by the OnePlus 5T already. Some rumours suggest that the device may sport a 6-inch (1080×2160) display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, while other rumours hint at the same display as the OnePlus 5 that comes with a 5.5-inch screen. But then, with a new report coming out, OnePlus 5T is indeed coming with an 18:9 display.
This information comes from a popular tipster, who’s often accurate at its claims. He tweets that OnePlus is preparing to launch a new smartphone with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Blass a couple of days ago said that he hasn’t really heard anything about the OnePlus 5T. But now, he takes back his words and says that a reliable industry source has confirmed to him that OnePlus 5T is actually in making and will come with a display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The source it seems also confirmed the launch timeline of the OnePlus 5T.
