OnePlus 5T flagship phone gets a New Look

  • Launch of OnePlus 5T. What Features are we expecting ?

The 5T is not water resistant, so don't dunk it. While it was earlier expected that the phone would be priced slightly higher and the OnePlus 5 would remain on sale, it is now known that the OnePlus 5 is to be discontinued and completely replaced by the OnePlus 5T, which has maintained pricing at the same level.

The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard. Like Apple's system, face unlocking on the OnePlus 5T can be used to unlock the phone and it works in 0.4 seconds according to OnePlus, so it's slower than the 0.2 seconds the fingerprint reader takes.

It has been 'enabled by TrueDepth camera for facial recognition, ' the company said.

When the OnePlus 5 first came out, some users experienced an odd phenomenon with its display while scrolling. Both sport full-screen designs, both offer dual camera setups and, although Apple claims its offering is the most accurate, both feature face-scanning technology.

It's worth noting that even the OnePlus 3 had to face a similar fate past year, but owing to the fact that its successor only came with non-cosmetic improvements under the hood, which only revealed themselves when put to the blade by benchmarking tests, the news of the upgrade did not seem as harsh on the millions of users who had invested their money in the OnePlus 3.

These are the best OnePlus 5T cases to protect your phone and keep it looking new.

While the iPhone X is covered front and back in glass, and the sides in stainless steel, the OnePlus 5T is made of much lighter anodised aluminum.

Now the OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 whereas the iPhone X runs on iOS 11. Last year, OnePlus had managed to release Android Nougat update for OnePlus 3 and 3T at the end of the year.

It is being hailed as a "fit for low-light photography" camera. The dual 12MP camera is quite nice, however, the OnePlus 5T's cameras might prove to be even better.

This camera comes with "Intelligent Pixel" technology which merges four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity.

The iPhone X, on the other hand features two 12-megapixel rear cameras - one wide-angle, and another telephoto. The OnePlus 5T also competes directly with the Nokia 8, which isn't bezel-less but comes with many extra features over then OnePlus 5T, such as, OIS-equipped primary camera, IP54 splash-resistance, and front autofocus camera.

The battery is the same size as before, too, at 3,300mAh, and Dash Charge is still in place, with OnePlus promising "enough power for the day" with half an hour of charging.
