Chinese tech giant Oneplus is very close to launching Oneplus 5T, the upgraded version of Oneplus 5. With Oneplus 5T, Oneplus is continuing its tradition of launching a device that has minor advancement to the major device released in the second quarter of the year. Oneplus started this custom with the launch of Oneplus 3T last year. After Apple iPhone X, Oneplus 5T is the most hyped smartphone. Let’s talk about all the advancement it is going to get.
OnePlus 5 had an average design that looked like a duplicate of Apple iPhone 7 plus which was not at all innovative when compared to Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, and others. But Going by the leaks it looks like the rear panel of Oneplus 5T is going to be same as that of Oneplus 5 except the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It will have change on the front panel same as seen in LG G6. The new smartphone is going to be made from same metal used in Oneplus 5.
OS And Processor
Oneplus 5T is going to run on the latest Oxygen OS based Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
It will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that powers the OnePlus 5 too.
The bezel-less full-screen displays are the new norm for flagship smartphones from the beginning this year (even Apple adopted it with iPhone X), so it was supernatural to expect a “flagship killer” to do the same. Leaks suggest that the Oneplus 5T is going to have a 6-inch Optic AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2160 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio also featuring 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 5 on the top.
As per one of the leaks suggest, OnePlus is putting the fingerprint scanner at the back of the device in a square-shaped form. Not sure if fans will be impressed by this decision, but it is better than not having it at all like the iPhone X.We can expect a significant bump in the megapixel count for the rear dual-cameras. The OnePlus 5T might sport a pair of 20MP sensors, as per a recent AnTuTu benchmark listing.The front camera could also be bumped up to a 20MP, up from the 16MP camera that we saw on the OnePlus 5.
Launch Date And Pricing
It is to be believed that the OnePlus 5T will be priced slightly higher than its predecessor. As expected, the OnePlus 5T will come in two variants.Based on a recent listing of the OnePlus 5T on Oppo Mart, the 64GB variant could carry a $549 (approx Rs 35,500) price tag, and the 128GB variant would cost around $649 (approx Rs 42,000), which makes it OnePlus’ most expensive smartphone yet.
Leaks suggest that Oneplus 5T is going to launch on November 16 and will be available exclusively on Amazon from November 20.
