Only the devices that ship with the Android Oreo unusually installed will be needed to feature Project Treble, and, downheartedly, the latest phone of OnePlus, the 5T, ships with the Android Nougat. Now, The device is ready to go on sale for everyone this Friday (November 24) via Preview Sale on Amazon.OnePlus 5T will go on 1-hour sale from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM on both Amazon India and company's official website.
It's worth noting that OnePlust 5T isn't a budget smartphone, but costs Rs 32,999 for 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant and Rs 37,999 for the 8GB + 128GB configuration model in India. The OnePlus 5T carries its own traditional design which is a brand mark. However, the security patch has only been upgraded to September and the changelog for the final build is similar to the open beta released in October for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
There can be many pros and cons to a smartphone, but the success of it is easily determined with how many people actually buy it.
When the user asked about the QHD display, Carl answered the question in such a way that, the display on the OnePlus 5T is good enough and the users will not be able to differentiate between the OnePlus 5T and smartphone with QHD display. We found this feature to be pretty snappy, but for a few misses in low-light conditions. The user base said that there is an improvement in the display quality compared to the OnePlus 5 and they even thought it was a QHD panel.
OnePlus also explained the reason there is no OIS on their phones is because it would increase the physical size of the OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T.
OnePlus 5T does come with a lower aperture in rear cameras but there doesn't seem to be a major upgrade spec-wise. The OnePlus 5T also exchanged the zoom capabilities of the OnePlus 5 for better pictures in low-light situations and comes with a new Face Unlock feature that are in certain situations better than the iPhone X's Face ID.
OnePlus has brought back the dual camera setup with its latest flagship.
Powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the smartphone like the OnePlus 5, is backed by a 3300mAh battery along with the support for Dash charging tech. The secondary sensor is a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376K which replaces the 20-megapixel Sony IMX350 sensor which came paired with a telephoto lens.
Continuing with its precedent of introducing a "T" variant - OnePlus 5 that came five months ago became the bestseller - 5T with a few hardware changes and no change in pricing makes OnePlus 5 nearly obsolete. Also, the earlier OnePlus 3 model which was launched in May was discontinued in October due to the launch of OnePlus 3T.
