The OnePlus 5T has so far gotten leaked by somewhat untrustworthy sources that can’t be relied upon to provide accurate information. This ends now with the arrival of a series of tweets by Evan Blass who has a pretty solid reputation when it comes to rumors.
Blass’ first tweet surprisingly denies the existence of the OnePlus 5T, agreeing with an article which discusses why the handset won’t exist. He then points out that he hasn’t heard anything about the smartphone and it made little sense to him in the near future.
He changed his mind just over an hour later, issuing a follow-up tweet where he took his earlier statement back. It seems Blass heard from a reliable source who informed him that OnePlus is actually working on a phone with an 18:9 screen with an eye on an end of November launch.

His final tweet on the topic fleshed out the date more, with a second reliable source asserting a post-November 20 release. He didn’t talk about any specs, with a new AnTuTu leak taking care of that question. The listing claims that the OnePlus 5T runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box, a major upgrade.
The page also suggests that OnePlus is upgrading the dual rear camera setup to a 20MP + 20MP pair instead of a 20MP + 16MP one. Other aspects hinted at include 8GB of RAM, 128GB of ROM, a Snapdragon 835 processor, an Adreno 540 GPU, and a 1080 x 2160p display.
