Every smartphone so far from OnePlus has been popular and loved world wide because of their upgraded software features along with powerful specs, all these at really competitive price compared to other big brands like Samsung, Apple, as well as Google’s Pixel series. This is probably what brought OnePlus to the top three smartphone manufacturers in the world, in mere time of just 4 years.
After huge success of their latest flagship OnePlus 5, the company has brought its another flagship variant today named OnePlus 5T. The phone is launched today as per schedule in Brooklyn, New York. The phone comes with little upgrade in specifications but its completely different in design and style compared to the predecessor OnePlus 5. This powerful specs and all new 18:9 design makes OnePlus 5T a premium and the best to have smartphone today in the market. Let’s find out what does it has to offer us. Read First Impression of 5T here.
The new OnePlus 5 features an amazing and huge 6.01 inch Full HD+ Optic AMOLED 2.5D curved Glass display offering 2106 ×1080 pixels resolution with sRGB and DCI-P3 color coverage. It is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for better durability. The display offers 18:9 aspect ratio and is 80.5% screen-to-body ratio, which can also be called as Full Screen, just like Samsung Galaxy S8’s infinite display.
Being a large full screen display, OnePlus has removed the physical Home button from 5T and has moved the ceramic fingerprint sensor on the rear of the phone, for the first time. The fingerprint is fast and responsive enough to unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds.
The phone is packed inside an Anodized Aluminum unibody metal design and comes out of the box running Android 7.1.1 Nougat based company’s own Oxygen OS 4.7. It will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo early next year. The software also adds some new features to the flagship like Gallery Map, Parallel Apps, and much more.
Coming to the processing power, OnePlus 5T is powered with the same 2.45GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 835 64-bit 10nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 540 GPU as we had on OnePlus 5. As per RAM and Storage too, the phone comes in two variants including 6GB LPDDR4x RAM with 64GB storage (UFS 2.1 ) and 8GB LPDDR4x RAM with 128GB (UFS 2.1) storage variants along with with 2-lane ROM. Well, you just can’t doubt about Performance or Multitasking on this phone.
One of the biggest attraction of OnePlus 5 was its Camera and photography features. You must not be surprised to know that OnePlus 5T is even better in this section. The phone comes with Dual Rear Cameras that includes a 16-megapixel primary rear camera with large f/1.7 aperture, dual LED Flash, Sony IMX398 sensor, 1.12μm pixel size, EIS and wide-angle lens just like OnePlus 5, but unlike the telephoto lens, 5T carries a secondary 20-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture, Sony IMX376K sensor and 1.0μm pixel size for better low-light photography and improved depth-of-field (bokeh) effect. It also helps you to blur the backdrops in portrait mode and offers crisp zoom.
The rear cameras are good enough to record Ultra HD 4K videos at 30fps, Full HD 1080p at 60 fps and 720p slow motion videos at 120fps. While for Selfie users, with OnePlus 5T we get 16 Megapixel front-facing camera with Sony IMX371 sensor, 1.0μm pixel size and f/2.0 aperture, same as OnePlus 5 but with this we get a new face recognition feature which also unlocks your device. It also seems good enough for music fans with its 3.5mm audio jack, 3 microphones with noise cancellation and Dirac HD Sound.
Just all all other aspects so far, the new OnePlus 5T is also good in connectivity department supporting all major connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11ac dual-band (2×2 MU-MIMO ), Bluetooth 5.0 aptX HD, GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, USB 2.0 Type-C and NFC.
