OnePlus 5T Specs, Price, And Release Date Officially Announced

OnePlus 5T Specs, Price, And Release Date Officially Announced

OnePlus has finally launched its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 5T at the launch event in NY. There are some interesting new features on the software side, like a new face unlock mode that is super interesting to use. We don't care about the latter too much, but the former is something the OnePlus 5T lacks in comparison to almost every other Android flagship this year.

The device will be available in an early access sale on Amazon, oneplusstore.in and OnePlus experience store in Bengaluru on November 21.

OnePlus 3T retains the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage options of the OnePlus 3, but offers a more capacious 128GB option too, which could be very useful, especially since there's no expandable storage on OnePlus devices.

The biggest difference is the larger 6-inch AMOLED display, which is crammed into a case that's nearly the same size as the 5.5-inch screen from the OnePlus 5. The display comes with 80 percent screen to body ratio.

The phone is powered by Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor.

The OnePlus 5T's new fingerprint sensor placement opens up new possibilities. The phone also features Facial Recognition technology for unlocking that uses 100 points on the face for authentication. Instead, it runs on the dated Android Nougat software.

Most notably, the secondary rear camera packs a wider-aperture (f/1.7 versus the old f/2.6) secondary rear camera that should let in much more light. The focus with the OnePlus 5T is on improved image quality, so it will be interesting to see how it performs in real-life.

Supplying power is a 3,300mAh non-removable battery that works with Dash Charge technology.

It's quite a dramatic change over the OnePlus 5, but OnePlus has kept the changes to a minimum elsewhere, physically at least. Designed with painstaking attention to detail, the OnePlus 5T continues OnePlus design's proud tradition of refinement and total cohesion.

OnePlus has also developed a new app "OnePlus Switch" that will help users change phones seamlessly. This is going to be a USP for the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus says it's on par with the OnePlus 5's front-facing sensor, and we've been happy so far with how easy and comfortable it is to reach. The OnePlus 5T's dual-lane storage, based on UFS 2.1, ensures faster app loading and read/write speeds. Within the dual-camera setup, the device houses one 20Megapixel sensor and another 16Megapixel module. The phone offers support for 4G LTE connectivity, it supports both FDD-LTE (bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/29/30/66) and TDD-LTE (bands 34/38/39/40/41), while Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac is also included here. There's a 16-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/1.7 as before, but the secondary camera is now a 20-megapixel unit with the same aperture and focal length. This time around the fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the device, and we're here to take a closer look at the OnePlus 5T spec sheet, read on.

OnePlus confirmed ahead of the launch event that the 5T will keep its headset jack, a port that's now an endangered species on high-end phones. The 2017 has undeniably been the year of bezel-less screens and OnePlus, despite being in the premium was missing out on the biggest trend.
