OnePlus 5T and all about it in pictures

For anyone who's been following the topic, there's probably nothing about the OnePlus 5T launch today that comes as a surprise.

Battery: OnePlus 5T comes with a 3300mAh battery that is estimated to last one day. For OnePlus - a brand which survives on the idea of bringing the very best in terms of hardware to the market at a competitive price - not being able to flaunt a Full HD + bezel-less panel on its 2017 flagship was starting to become detrimental to its sales.

The 64GB model comes with a hefty 6GB of RAM while the 128GB model with 8GB RAM costs $60 more.

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

OnePlus 5T is a dual sim, Android 8.0 (Oreo) smartphone, with Octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo) CPU, 6/8 GB RAM, 64/128GB storage, 6 inches display, 16M display colors and 35000 mAh battery. OnePlus also introduced the new Face Unlock feature with the OnePlus 5T smartphone.

Essentially, the OnePlus 5T is the same phone as the OnePlus 5 but only inside a bigger body and equipped with a better display. We also expect the same feature to be soon made available for the OnePlus 5 via a software update.

While the OnePlus 5T has a lot to offer over its predecessor, it has price tag.

Now the OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 whereas the iPhone X runs on iOS 11.

Inside, the OnePlus 5T is identical to its forebear and I would expect it to produce near-identical benchmark results.

Its much costlier counterpart, the iPhone X, on the other hand, sports a height of 144mm, is 71mm wide.

This also puts the spotlight back on the Google Pixel 2 XL, a phone that is going through a tough time because of its OLED screen woes. incidentally, the Pixel 2 XL also has a 6-inch screen with same 18:9 aspect ratio. The dual 12MP camera is quite nice, however, the OnePlus 5T's cameras might prove to be even better.

"Low-light photography was one of the key pieces of feedback we got from users, so we designed a system that merges four pixels into one to reduce noise while having two cameras to produce portrait mode shots and a hybrid zoom system that could replace the 2x zoom of a telephoto lens", explained Pei. It's largely evaded questions of how this is possible, maintaining a loyal following of power users and tech enthusiasts sold on its high-performance phones with near-stock Android.
