OnePlus 5T with glass back panel expected to hit retail shelves on Q4 2017


Just when we are hearing rumors about the imminent release of OnePlus 5, the latest information from the rumor mills is that the OnePlus 5T will release soon. According to sources, the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled before the end of Q4 2017 with the glass panel on the rear. Hence, you can expect a rear panel coated with glass.

The move by OnePlus assumes significance with Apple gearing up to launch iPhone 8 with the glass panel in a bid to celebrate the 10th anniversary on a grand scale.

A popular tipster with the moniker @mmddj_china took to Twitter and revealed the information about the possible launch of OnePlus 5T with glass back panel in either Q3 2017 or Q4 2017.

The leaker also disclosed that Oppo R11s will also ship with the same glass back panel around the same time frame. You can also expect the integration of a wireless charging functionality.

That said, you should accept the acts only with a pinch of salt since there is no official confirmation. Talking about OnePlus 5, the leaked retail box reveals the presence of a dual camera with 16MP capacity.

The other rumored specifications are the addition of a 5.5-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM coupled with the dual rear camera. Moreover, the phone will be powered by a 3300mAh battery.
