Let's take a gander at some of them

On the photography front, the device is expected to come with an enhanced 20+20MP dual camera, and a bigger display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it could pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU. As reported by GSM Arena, there's a possibility that the device might boast a bigger battery. The speculations stem from what the company did with the OnePlus 3T. The aforesaid report also suggests the device will be backed by a robust 3,450 mAh capacity battery, which is a reasonable 4.5% boost.

OnePlus founder and chief executive Pete Lau is leaving no stone unturned in a bid to build more hype around the upcoming smartphone.

On Wednesday, October 25, Lau teased the OnePlus 5T by posting a picture of beautiful scenery. He drew attention to the device's camera with a caption that read, "Impressive photo. Must be a great camera."

Although he did not divulge specific details, including the name of the device used to take the picture, IndiaToday deems this as a clear indication of the OnePlus 5T's looming arrival.

The post also implies that the upcoming smartphone may receive a radical upgrade in terms of the camera when compared to its predecessor, the #OnePlus 5, which features rear-mounted dual cameras with 16MP and 20MP sensor each.

Price and other details

It can be recalled that the company launched the OnePlus 5 carrying a starting price of about $509 for the 6GB + 64GB version.
