OnePlus lovers rejoice! No OnePlus 5T, but this smartphone may release soon

OnePlus raised a lot of eyebrows a year ago when it announced the OnePlus 3T (review) just six months after the popular OnePlus 3 (review). However, seeing how the OnePlus 5 now runs on the fastest processor in the market, there's not much room for incremental improvements for a T model. There's no upgraded processor yet from Qualcomm so not much left for an upgraded version. It seems the company is looking to launch the OnePlus 6 early instead. This is in line with the way OnePlus got the Snapdragon 821 processor on the 3T smartphone, while the OnePlus 3 had the older 820 model.

The OnePlus 5 already touts overkill specifications for a flagship in its price range; 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of storage isn't a joke especially in a smartphone and releasing the OnePlus 5T that could potentially deliver slightly better performance in benchmarking tests and a bigger battery would be considered redundant. Rather the company is eyeing to launch OnePlus 6 in early 2018.

OnePlus 6 is expected to come with edge-to-edge display and 18:9 aspect ratio. Meanwhile, numerous other 2016 Android flagships packed Snapdragon 820 processors.

There is no specific reason behind the rumor that claims the early arrival of OnePlus 6 in 2018. Also, it is expected that the handset can be featured with improved display and OnePlus 6 may have the fingerprint sensor on rear cover whereas place of ports and speaker may undergo changes. After the launch people were expecting the OnePlus 5T smartphone to arrive in the market. This indicates that the OnePlus 6 may come with a bezel-less design. The phone may come with a 6-inch screen.
