Five months after unveiling OnePlus 5, the company has launched its successor and ungraded variant OnePlus 5T. The phone is more or less along the lines of what we have been hearing the rumours. Most sticking features of the new flagship are its all-screen front with minimal bezels. Other key highlights of the phone include an improved dual camera setup, facial recognition and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. As per the company, its unique facial recognition technique is backed by its ability to utilize 100 facial features the securely unlock the phone.
Design wise, the OnePlus 5T boasts a unibody metal design with U shape antenna lines at the top and bottom edges just like its predecessor. OnePlus continues to offer a 3.5mm headphone jack. It features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The OnePlus 5T houses a 6.01-inch Optic AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution and a 401ppi pixel density. OnePlus is using a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the display to protect it from minor accidental scratches.
To powerlift most tasks, the OnePlus is using a 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor with Adreno 540 GPU. Like the predecessor, it too comes in two versions: 6GB RAM with 64GB ROM and 8GB RAM with 128GB ROM. The phone will be running on latest OxygenOS which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
