OnePlus is showing off the back of its second flagship this year a week before the official unveiling. 

In pictures posted by CEO Pete Lau on the company forum and social media, we can see three rear cameras arranged in a circle, similar to the recently-released Vivo NEX 3. OnePlus and Vivo often share similar phone designs. Along with Oppo, the three brands share the same parent, BBK Electronics. 

The images don’t show the front, though, so we’ll have to wait to find out if the 7T features a pop-up selfie camera just like the OnePlus 7 Pro or Vivo NEX 3.
