With a positive and tremendous feedback for the OnePlus 5, the company has now stepped up its game by launching a successor with more features and improvement. The OnePlus 5T is a ray of sunshine in the dark for buyers who are looking for a new smartphone with good features in affordable range. But at the same time the OnePlus 5T is sad news for the people who recently got themselves the original version i.e. the OnePlus 5.
LAUNCH AND VARIANTS
Just as same as in the International markets OnePlus 5T is going on sale in India on 21st November. The Chinese brand is offering two variants of its recent launch, one with 6GB RAM/ 64GB in built storage at a price of Rs. 32,999 and the other costs Rs. 37,999 for 8GB RAM/128GB in built storage.
The smartphone which is the biggest handset of OnePlus till now, will be exclusively available on Amazon India and also on the online store of OnePlus.
SPECIFICATION AND FEATURES
The OnePlus 5T has a screen of 6.01 inch with full HD, an aspect ratio of 18;9, 401 pixel density and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Just like its predecessor 5T is also powered by an octa-core Snapdragon and paired up with two variants of 6GB or 8GB RAM. Made out of metal unibody the 5T weighs 162 grams, measuring 156.1x75x7.3 mm.
The dual sim phone running on OxygenOS 4.7 which is based on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat has added a new feature of Facial Recognition Lock, which is something that the users did not get in OnePlus 5. This Face Unlock however is not said to work on sensitive apps and therefore the 5T also holds the feature of fingerprint sensor, which can be used to work through apps and selfies very quickly.
For those who have recently got their hands on the OnePlus 5 this may be a god news that the OxygenOS 4.7 can make its way o the original smartphone i.e. the OnePlus 5.
The biggest update that the OnePlus 5T made is on the camera of the phone, a major change from its predecessor although the very base of the idea has been kept same. The dual rear camera setup has the identical primary sensor to that of the OnePlus 5, a 16 megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor. They although gave it an upgrade focal length of 27.22 mm. it is accompanied by dual LED flash, recording 4K videos at 30fps. With these changes in the rear cameras the brand is focusing on low light photography. The new rear camera arrangement is supposed to reduce noise and improve the quality, so as OnePlus says.
The secondary camera is identical in almost all aspects to its predecessor the OnePlus 5. Trhe only changes are the replacement of the Sony IMX350 sensor with a 20 megapixel Sony IMX376K sensor, whilst alongside upgrading the aperture to f/1.7 and focal length to 27.22mm.
The on board sensors of OnePlus 5T include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and a digital compass alongside the fingerprint sensor which has been moved to the rear panel instead of being placed on the home button. This change can be credited to the new bezel-less display.
The battery of OnePlus 5T is a non-removable 3300 mAh supporting the company’s Dash Charge charging technology.
The improvements and changes make the OnePlus 5T a better option for the new buyers at the same price as of the OnePlus 5.
