OnePlus 5T: They forgot to upgrade one massive feature

OnePlus 5T: They forgot to upgrade one massive feature


The mid-year successor to OnePlus 5, dubbed the OnePlus 5T comes with 6.01-inch edge-to-edge display like the Samsung Galaxy S8/ S8 Plus or iPhone X. It boasts of "Full Optic AMOLED Display" with an 18:9 aspect ratio to deliver a more immersive viewing experience, which is the new trend in smartphone industry.

For many of us, as well-received as OnePlus phones are (and we're certainly fans of them around here), they often force us to settle in various ways.

The OnePlus 5T is already shaping up to be everything an upgrade should be. Apparently, the back panel of the phone undergoes two lots of sandblasting before receiving an anti-fingerprint layer. Customers can buy the OnePlus 5T from the OnePlus online official store and from online retailer Amazon in India.

The switch to a bigger screen necessitated changes to the chassis. For some, the rear fingerprint sensor will be easier to tap, for others the sensor being on the front likely felt more comfortable. And thankfully, the trendy tall display isn't the only improvement.

Some significant changes have been made when it comes to the dual camera, which has been revamped for use with low light photography.

The device features a new "Sunlight Display" that adapts automatically to harsh light.

Facial recognition unlocks the phone in 0.4 seconds but data-sensitive apps, such as banking, won't work without the fingerprint scanner being touched. How useful is that to you? The OnePlus 5T still won't support wireless charging due as part of the company's decision, and also does not feature any water resistance on paper. Pair all that with the price of Rs 32,999, which is unchanged from their last flagship OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5T will cost you $499 for the 64GB, 6GB variant. The manufacturer says a beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo will be available for adventurous phone owners sometime in December. Here are three big OnePlus 5T offers that some users may find useful. And while some of us may not be comfortable with a 6-month cycle, it exists just to make OnePlus take a stand for the next year.

OnePlus 5T Launch Begins in New York City: Live Updates

In the UK, OnePlus is exclusively available through O2, who is accepting pre-orders on the new model from 17:15 on 16 November. We recently reviewed the OnePlus 5 and found it to be promising.

One thing that has yet to be considered here, is perhaps one of the most important factors about upgrading - cost.

Chinese smartphone market OnePlus on Thursday unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5T, at a media event today in Brooklyn.

What you have to realize about what I just listed is that nearly all of those have been a part of the equation from day 1.

The OnePlus 5T in its 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant will sell at a price of Rs 37,999.

The rear camera setup (16MP + 20MP) is similar to what was included on the standard OnePlus 5 although the secondary sensor is a bit better with an f/1.7 aperture. You can thank the novel new display for that. Is it worth spending the same amount of money on a slightly upgraded version of OnePlus' earlier 2017 version of its flagship not more than five months later since its launch? If you're looking for value then you've come to the right place.
