OnePlus 5 & 5T to Soon Receive Android Oreo Open Beta Update

OnePlus 5 & 5T to Soon Receive Android Oreo Open Beta Update

During its presentation of the OnePlus 5T, the company was open about the mistakes it has made, so it comes as little surprise that the firm isn't making the same mistake with the display this go-around. The 5T is not water resistant, so don't dunk it. The flagship is priced at $499 for 64GB and $559 for 128GB.

The OnePlus 5T will be available in 6GB RAM+64 GB storage and 8GB RAM+128 GB storage (midnight black) versions. Although in many ways, no make it most ways, the new phone is similar to the OnePlus 5, there is one big difference between the two. The company said it will disable that ability for 3rd-party apps to get root privileges in an upcoming OTA software patch. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the rear of the device to accommodate the all-screen display. What Face Unlock is aiming for is speed, and it beats Face ID in that aspect. Talking further about the update, OnePlus has added DND User Interface, for more customisation of the feature. Though the OnePlus 5T carries roughly the same physical space as the OnePlus 5, the screen has been increased from 5.5 inches to 6.1 inches.

The OnePlus 5T will be available in India from November 21 for half the price of the iPhone X.

In terms of display, the iPhone X has a 5.8-inch, 1125x2436 display, the OnePlus 5T packs in a 6.01-inch, 1080x2160 display, leaving iPhone X users with a much sharper display as compared to the OnePlus 5T. The OnePlus 5T sports a length of 156mm, is 75mm wide, 7.5mm in thickness and weighs 162 grams.

It is being hailed as a "fit for low-light photography" camera.

Elsewhere, OnePlus' Intelligent Pixel Technology will see the secondary camera merge four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity, while a new Portrait Mode will make selfies less fuzzy, the company claims.

In comparison, the iPhone X also offers a dual camera set-up which features optical zoom.

The OnePlus 5T runs Android Nougat, but the firm is promising a speedy upgrade to Google's newer Oreo software. The OnePlus 5T also competes directly with the Nokia 8, which isn't bezel-less but comes with many extra features over then OnePlus 5T, such as, OIS-equipped primary camera, IP54 splash-resistance, and front autofocus camera. While it has the same battery as the OnePlus 5T, it does support wireless charging, and it offers Samsung DeX and Bixby, both of which lack from the new OnePlus smartphone.
