Finally, the launch of the OnePlus 5T puts a full stop to leaks and rumours; the OnePlus 5T is now official.
The OnePlus 5T is a direct hit at the South-Korean tech giant Samsung and Google flagship phones. Why purchase a smartphone with hefty prices when you can pay just $500 for similar features?
OnePlus’s is a master in undercutting the competition and the OnePlus 5T is no different.
We all know, though, the last flagship of the company released back in June, the company is working fast on new products and features while other phone manufacturers can’t.
The OnePlus 5T starts at $499 for 64GB of storage with 6GB of RAM and $559 for 128GB of storage with 8GB of RAM and launches on Nov. 21. And there’s only one colour this time: Midnight Black.
This is the OnePlus 5T with a 6″ screen. It’s 12.5% larger than the 5’s.
AMOLED and 80.5% screen to body ratio

The device is similar to what we saw in the OnePlus 5, both design and performance wise.
The AMOLED screen’s bigger at 6.01-inches and now stretches across the front with an extraordinary 80.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. The resolution’s 2160 x 1080 — not nearly as good as the now common 2880 x 1440 resolution found on other phones with 18:9 aspect ratio screens, but still it’s good.
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and the aforementioned options for storage and RAM. There’s no memory card slot, but you have the option for dual SIM slots. The battery is same as its predecessor: 3,300mAh with OnePlus’s super fast Dash Charge technology.
The fingerprint scanner’s been replaced to the back of the phone. And thankfully, there’s still a headphone jack.
Like all OnePlus phones, the 5T runs OxygenOS, the company’s optimized version of stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
There are a few improvements made in the device: low-light performance has been enhanced, more sharp and vibrant Portrait mode, and better selfies and photos.
Though the device hasn’t got much; the only difference is that the display is bigger and bezel’s slimmer, the few upgrades still make it an impressive headset if you are looking to buy something same as the Note 8 or Pixel 2.
