By November 17th, 2017 AT 9:04 AM

Finally, the OnePlus 5T goes official. The smartphone which was in the news for more than a month is finally here. And it brings some noteworthy changes when compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 5. The 5T will retail for the same price of the OnePlus 5 in India at Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB variant and Rs. 37,999 for the 128GB variant.


Let’s first speak about the new features added in the OnePlus 5T when compared to OnePlus 5. The 5T comes with a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED display, which is an edge-to-edge display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. OnePlus says that the bigger display doesn’t increase the overall footprint of the smartphone compared to the OnePlus 5.

The 5T comes with an all-new Face Unlock which is a new unlocking feature rated to unlock the smartphone in just 0.4 seconds. Thanks to the edge-to-edge display on the front, the fingerprint sensor is moved to the back of the phone within reach of your index finger.


The OnePlus 5T also features dual camera setup the back. The 5T has the same 16MP f/1.7 sensor as the OnePlus 5, but the secondary is upgraded and it’s now a f/1.7 sensor with an aim to provide better low-light performance. The Portrait mode is still present on the 5T, but that’s not all. Thanks to the same aperture sensors, the 5T doesn’t crop the image when comparing a Portrait mode. There’s Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS), and no Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) yet. Up front, you get the same 16MP selfie camera, and there are no frills with the selfie camera though.

The OnePlus 5 comes powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, clubbed with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The smartphone doesn’t offer a microSD slot for storage expansion. The design of the smartphone remains the same. The alert slider, 3.5mm headphone jack is still present on the smartphone. OnePlus is sticking with the 3.5mm headphone jack for now, as they promised earlier.


It boots Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, and the Chinese company confirmed the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program to the 5T in early December. The stable update will roll out in early 2018. The device still has a 3300mAh battery with Dash Charge technology.
