OnePlus teases name for its upcoming flagship smartphone

As you’ve probably realised by now, OnePlus likes to do things a little differently than your average smartphone manufacturer.

Rather than desperately trying (and usually failing) to keep everything under wraps, the upstart phone maker likes to build anticipation with plenty of pre-release details.

While today’s not-so-cryptic tweet doesn’t count as an official announcement, it almost certainly gives away the name.

Did you guess it?

OnePlus…. Five cups of Tea…. One Plus 5T!

Keeping the jack?

The tweet follows a hint earlier today suggesting the phone will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.

On its Facebook page the company posted an image showing all of its current and previous-gen handsets showing the headphone jacks.

The tag-line asked the question: “What do our phones have in common?”

Retaining the headphone jack would likely be a smart play by OnePlus as it seeks to differentiate itself from Apple and Google-made handsets.

Samsung is also sticking with the 3.5mm headphone jack, news which drew cheers at the recent Galaxy Note 8 announcement.

OnePlus is yet to announce when the OnePlus 5T will be revealed, but with the current OnePlus 5 completely sold out we’d be surprised not to see it unveiled before the end of the year.

Recent leaked images have suggested an edge-to-edge display will headline the forthcoming device.

While other specs could remain similar to the OnePlus 5, a bezel-less front would likely see the fingerprint sensor move to the back of the OnePlus 5T.
