It has only been a couple of days since OnePlus officially announced the OnePlus 5. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered handset is the most powerful and capable device that the company has ever made. It’s expected to follow it up with the OnePlus 5T later this year. The latest reports out of China suggest that the OnePlus 5T may not feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor as many would expect it to.
OnePlus released the OnePlus 3T in November last year after first launching the OnePlus 3 in June. It was a slightly updated version of the device which featured a Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the original handset’s Snapdragon 820.
While OnePlus hasn’t confirmed anything at this point in time, it’s believed that it’s going to follow up the OnePlus 5 with the OnPlus OnePlus 5T in November this year. The latest reports out of China suggests that OnePlus might decide to stick with the Snapdragon 835 instead of opting for the Snapdragon 836 in a bid to keep costs down.
It would have to make some tweaks to the handset, though, in order to justify a new model merely months after the original has been released. It’s unclear so far what OnePlus intends to offer with the OnePlus 5T.
