OnePlus 5T will come with a 3.5mm headset jack, Snapdragon 835 chipset, dual 20MP rear cameras are and a front one of 16MP.

Rumor has it that the phone will have a 18:9 touchscreen of 1,080 x 2,160 resolution with very thin bezels; the first such OnePlus smartphone with these features.
The OnePlus team made a deliberate choice of keeping the headphone jack after seeking users’ preferences and giving much thoughts to the effects on sound quality – important as OnePlus users showed to care much about the value for money. The team still believes that wired audio offers users a better sound quality.
OnePlus 5T is expected to run Android 8.0 Oreo.
