OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 5 back in June this year, it is a great phone and became very popular but then, in just 6 months the company decided to make great greater! It has launched the new OnePlus 5T which is an upgrade over the OnePlus 5 and comes with a tall 6.01 inches screen with 18:9 aspect ratio which is the biggest change from its predecessor and is also one of the biggest highlights of the OnePlus 5T. Due to the new bezel less screen, the OnePlus 5T packs the bigger 6.01 inches screen in almost the same size of the OnePlus 5 which came with 5.5 inches screen.
With the narrow bezels, the phone looks very beautiful and attractive from the front, however, the fingerprint scanner is moved to the back of the phone but rest of the build and design of the OnePlus 5T remains identical to the OnePlus 5T, which means the phone comes in a slim premium metal unibody design. The Full HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) Optic AMOLED display comes with 401 ppi pixel density and has excellent quality with vibrant colors. The screen comes with a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Another area which has seen some changes is the camera department of the OnePlus 5T. It again packs a dual rear camera on the back with a 16 MP primary Sony IMX 398 sensor with f/1.7 aperture, similar to the OnePlus 5 while the 20 MP secondary camera is a Sony IMX 376K sensor again with f/1.7 aperture, instead of a 20 MP telephoto lens used on the OnePlus 5. OnePlus has made this change to improve the low-light photography, and it successfully achieves that. The OnePlus 5T clicks excellent images in daylight with natural colors and it also clicks excellent sharp and low-noise shots in the night as well.
However, the use of a telephoto lens on the OnePlus 5 allowed for 2x optical zoom which proved quite handy but, it is now replaced with a better low light photography on the OnePlus 5T, which makes sense. For the portrait shots, the edge detection and blurring work very well. It can record 4K videos at 30fps and comes with EIS.
The 16 MP Sony IMX 371 sensor on the front remains the same, it comes with f/2.0 aperture and clicks excellent selfies. The front camera also reminds of the new innovative feature, which will soon become the trend for smartphones – Facial Unlock. The OnePlus 5T uses software for facial recognition and once you have set up your profile, you can unlock your phone by just pressing the power button and looking towards the phone, it is insanely fast and unlocks the phone in literally no time.
The performance department on the OnePlus 5T remains same as its predecessor. It runs on one of the most powerful mobile processors in the world, flagship from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.45 GHz and paired with Adreno 540 GPU. The OnePlus 5T also comes in two variants, one with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage and other with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The performance, again is excellent, it handles everything very smoothly, be it lots and lots of apps or heaviest of the games. The OnePlus 5T runs on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat based Oxygen OS and will soon get the Android Oreo update. The Oxygen OS is very close to stock Android, it just adds some features and UX enhancements.
It comes with USB Type-C for charging and data transfer, and also comes with the latest Bluetooth v5.0 and NFC. It supports two 4G sim cards and VoLTE. The OnePlus 5T packs in a non-removable Li-Po 3,300 mAh battery and comes with a 20W (5V, 4A) charger with OnePlus’s Dash Charge technology and charges the phone pretty quickly and delivers good battery backup. It has good audio quality and if you love reading a lot, it also comes with a Reading Mode and makes your phone like an e-book reader.
