OnePlus 5T premium smartphone with 6-inch display

The OnePlus 5T houses a new dual camera system wherein the secondary telephoto lens of the OnePlus 5 has been switched with a standard lens with a larger f/1.7 aperture to aid in low-light photography. "The Android 8.0 release includes Project Treble, a major re-architect of the Android OS framework created to make it easier, faster, and less costly for manufacturers to update devices to a new version of Android". As they will all be updated to Android Oreo, OnePlus is therefore not obligated to use Project Treble on these devices - and it's choosing not to.

Earlier this week, the OnePlus 3/3T started receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update.

OnePlus 5T is the latest device from the company and it just went on sale today. Right now, the new Android OS has been made available as a developer preview for Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixels, which will have a stable version by the end of this year.

After much anticipation, OnePlus has taken the wraps off OnePlus 5T smartphone.

OnePlus 5T also offers face unlock feature and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. According to the OnePlus.net site, the price sits at USA $499/£449/€499 for the 6GB/64GB version and U.S. $559/£499/€559 for the 8GB/128GB version.

It comes with a 6.01-inch full-HD Optic AMOLED display with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9 which invariably means that it's a near bezel-less phone.

Unlike what some initial users of OnePlus 5 had reported, we did not find any traces of "jelly scroll effect" on this device. The OnePlus 5T will be available for buying on the platform again on November 24.

New features are vetted by OnePlus users through channels like the OxygenOS Beta Program and only added once OnePlus is confident the features can improve the way users use their phone.
