As promised more than a week ago, OnePlus has officially unveiled its latest flagship device -- the OnePlus 5T. Bezel-less designs are all the rage these days, and for its newest smartphone, the Chinese phone maker gamely joins in on the fun. The OnePlus 5T easily belongs in the phablet category with its full 6 inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display screen, a significant size in bump as compared to the OnePlus 5’s 5.5 inches. And as previously confirmed by Pete Lau, the chief executive officer of OnePlus, earlier this month, the OnePlus 5T has indeed kept the standard 3.5 millimeter headphone jack (unlike other high profile smartphone releases in 2017).
First of all, let us go through the specifications -- as mentioned earlier, the OnePlus 5T is armed with a 6 inch OLED display, with a resolution of 1,080 by 2,160 pixels, a density of 401 pixels per inch (ppi), and an aspect ratio of 18 to 9. The gargantuan screen gets complemented with a dual camera set up on the rear side that consists of a 16 megapixel Sony IMX 398 main camera (with an aperture of f/1.7), and a secondary 20 megapixel IMX 376K camera (also f/1.7 aperture). On the front side, the phablet delivers a 16 megapixel Sensor IMX 371 shooter (aperture of f/2.0).
With regards to hardware specs, the OnePlus 5T boasts Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip set (eight core), paired with an Adreno 540 graphics processing unit (GPU), and supported with either 6 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 64 gigabytes of built in memory, or 8 gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of onboard storage. Completing the basic features are a fingerprint scanner, a non-removable 3,300 mAh battery, and OxygenOS based on Google’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat mobile operating system. Apart from the improvements (over its predecessor, the OnePlus 5), the OnePlus 5T also holds the distinction of being the first ever smartphone from OnePlus to come with unlocking by way of facial scanning technology and Portrait Mode.
Aside from their lovely specs, OnePlus devices have grown in popularity over the last few years because of their relative affordability, and the OnePlus 5T phablet is no exception to that. The handset’s starting price is at $499, which is way, way low compared to other high end smartphone offerings this year, like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, Apple’s iPhone X, and Google’s Pixel 2 XL. The OnePlus 5T will hit store shelves across the nation this coming November 21st.
