OnePlus 5T On The Horizon, If Rumors Are To Be Believed

We’ve been focusing a lot of our energy on the Pixel 2, Galaxy Note 8, and LG V30 as of late, but there are still a couple more flagship phones coming down the pipeline in 2017: Huawei’s Mate 10, which has been subject to plenty of leaks and rumors, and OnePlus’ next ‘T’ release, which has actually been kept well under wraps. Well, until today. A new report from GizmoChina claims to have details on OnePlus’ next flagship phone, though I’m going to preface this article by saying they should be taken with a big grain of salt. According to the leak, the OnePlus 5T release date is set for some time in November 2017. That would certainly make sense, as 2016’s OnePlus 3T was also unveiled in November. We’re also expecting the OnePlus 5T to sport most of the same under-the-hood specs as the OnePlus 5, which was just unveiled earlier this year in June. If you can recall, the OnePlus 3 and 3T shared the same design and most of the same specs, save for the upgraded processor and battery capacity. But if this new report is to be believed, OnePlus is taking a much different approach to its annual ‘T’ release. The report states that the OnePlus 5T will supposedly feature a 6.0-inch 2,160 x 1,080 resolution display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. If you can recall, the OnePlus 5 came with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 16:9 aspect ratio....

    Over the past five years, we’ve seen a quick integration of self checkout lanes and virtual reality in the retailing experience. Some find it to be extremely beneficial while many still prefer the human interaction that comes along with traditional checkout lanes.  However, the fact that they are here for the long haul remains unchanged.
