OnePlus has announced its much-anticipated successor to the OnePlus 5 – the OnePlus 5T. As with many of the product launches in the last few years, the final reveal wasn’t so startling simply because of the number of leaks, and even an “accidental” unboxing, which actually revealed all well before the launch.
The OnePlus 5T however, comes with slight improvements and tweaks over its predecessor, which faced quite a bit of criticism for a number of design and hardware compromises that the company had made. This launch comes just five months after the launch of the OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 5T: Spec-Sheet
The OnePlus 5T has a 6.0-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED display panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The OnePlus 5T also comes in two variants. While the first one is with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, the second variant will come with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.
The pixel density of the display works out to be around 401 ppi. The screen-to-body ratio is an approved 80 percent this time. The display also looks bright and vibrant with good viewing angles and good brightness levels. OnePlus has also revealed a new feature called the ‘Sunlight Display’. This mode will bump up the brightness of the display to help with the readability of content under direct sunlight.
OnePlus 5 also sports an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which is clocked at up to 2.45 GHz. This, along with an Adreno 540 GPU to handle graphics-intensive tasks. Also like the OnePlus 5, the 5T will not be coming with the option to expand the storage space on the device once users run out of the 64 GB or the 128 GB internal storage.
Design & Camera
The OnePlus 5T also includes a Type-C reversible USB 2.0 rated port present on the bottom of the device. It is flanked by a 3.5-mm headphone jack and the speaker grill. The SIM tray is present towards the right side of the device, along with the power button. You will also find the volume buttons and the alert slider a little towards the top on the left-hand side of the device. Looking at the device from the front, you can see the 16 MP camera module towards the top-left corner of the device.
OnePlus has kept the dual camera setup with its latest flagship. However, the company has changed the positioning of the camera by replacing the telephoto lens in the dual-camera setup with a normal focal length lens which has a 20 MP sensor and f/1.7 aperture which is responsible for improved performance in low-light conditions. This 20 MP camera sensor is also an addition to the existing, primary 16 MP camera sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The remaining specifications of the dual camera setup remain the same. There’s the phase detection autofocus, dual-LED dual tone flash unit along with the camera.
