OnePlus 5T: One Tough Cookie

If you have a OnePlus 5T and you haven't received this update yet, you should get it soon. We found this feature to be pretty snappy, but for a few misses in low-light conditions.

OnePlus 5T is out and the fans are loving it (most of them).

The decision by OnePlus is an expected one, especially considering that it does not view the OnePlus 5T as a major upgrade to the OnePlus. It reiterated that ahead of the sale, it had seen twice the number of people wanting to be notified compared to the first sale of the OnePlus 5. Further, the phone will come with 6GB and 8GB LPDDR4X RAM options, coupled with 64GB or 128GB of 2-Lane UFS 2.1 internal storage. It is only available in a Midnight Black colour variant.

When the user asked about the continuity of the T variant ever year, Carl said that, if there are enough technological upgrades and the company thinks that, it will be useful for the users, they will launch a T variant.

On the front, the OnePlus 5T features a 16MP camera with a Sony IMX 371 sensor and f/2.0 aperture. The OnePlus 5T runs OxygenOS 4.7 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. One of the fastest on the Android market, "Face Unlock" uses over 100 identifiers to unlock.

The rear-mounted ceramic fingerprint scanner is quick and unlocks the phone in a jiffy.

The aluminum body of the OnePlus 5T is both functionally and visually slim, creating a premium smartphone that is not only comfortable to hold but extremely durable. New display has an aspect ratio of 18:9, that being the reason for the taller display, and sports an odd resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. The display also supports sRGB and DCI-P3 colour gamuts. Similar to the OnePlus 5, the company has packed an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at up to 2.45 GHz along with Adreno 540 GPU to handle graphics-intensive tasks. The primary sensor is a Sony IMX 398 with a 16MP camera, f/1.7 aperture and 1.12um pixel size, while the secondary sensor is a Sony IMX 376K with a 20MP camera and an f/1.7 aperture too.

Vikas Aggarwal, the general manager of OnePlus India, noted in an interview with The Indian Express that the OnePlus 3T, the company's product before the OnePlus 5, was sold out during the Diwali festival at the end of May and discontinued afterward.

The newly-revealed update is in response to critics who have bemoaned the OnePlus 5T's photography capabilities, and should improve things on the camera front. The OnePlus 5T is backed by a 3300mAh non-removable battery and supports the company's Dash Charge fast charging.
