Called the OnePlus 5T, the teaser poster shows decreasing bezels which ultimately leads to extremely thin bezels surrounding the screen. In the center the poster shows the words 'A New View' instead of the most often used 'Never Settle'. This seems to be a strategy to work on improved features, as Carl Pei said in OnePlus forum thread, "We can't wait to tell you all about the new features and improvements that we have been working on."
