It has only been a month or so since OnePlus started selling its new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5. The much-awaited flagship killer has been well received. OnePlus is no stranger to launching new variants of its flagship devices in order to keep the hype going. If a recent post on the company’s official Facebook page is to be believed, it may be about to launch a new OnePlus variant in the near future.

The OnePlus 5 has been well received in the market despite some of the hiccups it has had. The new flagship took flak for the jelly scrolling effect and a bug that prevented users from dialing emergency services. OnePlus has addressed those issues, though, so all is good now.

A few hours ago, the company posted on its official Facebook page an image that contains the outline of the OnePlus 5 handset with the caption “5omething New. Coming Soon.” The outline is accompanied by the two variants of the OnePlus 5 that are already available.

It’s unlikely that OnePlus is launching a “T” variant of the OnePlus 5 so soon. The OnePlus 5 already has the most recent hardware package and an update for the internals so soon doesn’t really make sense.

It’s most likely going to be a variant that adds a new color option to the lineup but this is just speculation right now. OnePlus should have the official details for us about this in a couple of days.
