Alleged OnePlus 6T box leaks in photos, showing off in-display fingerprint sensor and 'waterdrop' notch

For the past few generations, OnePlus's phones have been heavily based on those from sister company OPPO. The OnePlus 6 was based on the OPPO R15, the OP5T was inspired by the R11s, and so on.

Yu doesn't say anything about the Watch 2, but shares a promotional picture, featuring a man in sports attire wearing the watch. Could this indicate the new model is aimed at the sports watch market?

Alleged OnePlus 3 Pictures Appear On Twitter, Front And Rear Of Device Shown Off

Third time lucky? The OnePlus 3 is right around the corner and as if on cue, leaked images of the phone have appeared on Twitter, courtesy of @krispitech (although they appeared on the Chinese social network 'Weibo' first). It unfortunately has a case disguising the looks of the phone, but there's still a fair bit on show.
