Did OnePlus deliberately trim off the 6T's bezels in this ad?

Did OnePlus deliberately trim off the 6T's bezels in this ad?

Screenshot taken from OnePlus' YouTube video "The Difference A Phone Makes - OnePlus 6T".

The OnePlus 6T has a teardrop notch and slimmer bezels, but the company seems to have trimmed some bezels off the phone in an ad with T-Mobile. 

In an ad showcasing Nightscape, Fast Charge, Screen Unlock and Fast Performance features, the appearance of the handset is modified in one scene (0:43) when an on-screen gameplay of Fornite is shown. The chin of the OnePlus 6T appears to have been removed to show a near bezel-less design. For comparison's sake, below is an actual photo of the chin of the OnePlus 6T shown during its launch event:

Is this false marketing? Did OnePlus deliberately hide the chin of the 6T in the ad? A woman recently filed a lawsuit against Apple over its iPhone XS marketing images which she claimed to have misled her into buying one without realising it has a notch. We let you be the judge.
